The tanks look intimidating…what if I’m claustrophobic / afraid?

 

It’s not as scary as it looks. The space inside the flotation tank is large, approximately 4 feet wide by 8.5 feet long. You are free to exit the tank or get back in at your own will. You can even float with the door open. Since there is an absence of space, time and sensation it is difficult to feel claustrophobic within the tank.

How are the tanks kept clean and disinfected?

 

There is 1000 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt dissolved in each of our tanks. Salinity is at 1.30 grams per cubic centimeter. The solution is so high in saline that no living micro-organism can survive in there. After each session, the entire volume of the solution is pumped out and filtered through a three part filtration and sterilization system utilizing Ultra Violet light and H2O2. UV is the safest most effective system available. It maintains the water’s soft, clean and crystal clear appearance. In addition all clients are required to shower prior to entering the tank.

I’m pregnant. Can floating harm my baby?

 

Absolutely not. In fact, pregnant women probably get more relief from the float tank than anyone else. Just lying on a bed can be extremely uncomfortable for a woman in the later stages of pregnancy due to the massive gravitational strain placed on the body. The float tank is a wonderful haven for pregnant women. If you have any concerns about the effects of floating on your pregnancy, we do recommend that you consult your doctor/physician before floating.

 

How can I maximize the benefits of my float?
Pre and Post Float Recommendations:

 

Most importantly…relax. The tank will help but if you arrive relaxed, the experience will be more beneficial for you. There are a few additional things to consider.

Try not to shave right before arriving. You can still come in if you do but high concentrations of salt may burn during your session and make it difficult to relax.

Coming into your float session with a light to empty stomach is best for optimal results. If the body is trying to process food during your session it makes it more difficult for your system to slow down and relax. We also recommend eating very fresh, alive food before your session and after your session. Fried or heavy foods can also hinder your session and dull down your post float glow!

Combining a massage, meditation, sauna session, inversion and or a foam rolling session before or after your session can greatly enhance your experience at our center. All of our services are designed in such a way that they compliment each other amazingly.

Remove your contacts prior to floating (bring a container to store them in)
