Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I need to bring anything to the float session?
A: Everything is provided and included in the cost of the float (except for contact cases and contact solution). We provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towels, hair dryer, Q-tips, as well as ear plugs.
Q: Is there an age requirement to float?
A: Anyone younger than 18 years old needs to have parental permission to float. We ask that the parent stay in the lobby for the duration of the first float. There is no maximum age. As long as you can comfortably get in and out of the float pod.
Q: Is there any risk of drowning?
A: The high buoyancy of the water makes it impossible for the individual to go beneath the surface. Floating is completely safe.
Q: I’m claustrophobic. How can I use the tank?
A: This is a common concern. You can choose to float with the door of the pod open and with the interior light on.
Q: How is hygiene maintained?
A: The high levels of Epsom salts makes any form of bacteria impossible to grow. The tank is also filtered before and after each float. Our float pods also use UV treatment and is also O3/ozone infused to insure the cleanest float possible.
Q: Can I float if I’m pregnant?
A: Yes! Many Moms feel relief from pregnancy symptoms when they float. Some say they can hear their baby’s heartbeat. Please verify with your OB-GYN before scheduling your appointment.
Q: Is there anyone who can’t float?
A: If you have a contagious skin condition, contagious respiratory condition, open wounds, incontinence,epilepsy, or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, we will not allow you to float.
Q: Can I float if I have dyed hair?
A: Please wait 24-48 hours after you dye your hair to float. Floating decreases the life of keratin treatments and hair extensions (like swimming in the ocean). We cannot guarantee that your hair treatments will not have some sort of change during your float. If you would like, you are more than welcome to wear a swim cap.
Q: Can I float during my menstrual cycle?
A: Women can float during their menstrual cycle as long as they would feel comfortable in a swimming pool. We ask that if you are on your cycle, you use an internal feminine product (tampon or menstrual cup) or wait until after your cycle has ended to schedule your float. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call at 630-884-8890.
