Frequently Asked Questions

After each float, the highly sterile salt water is: 

  • run through a 1 micron filter (Class 1 filtration) that is FDA compliant for drinking water.
  • treated with a combination of ozone and UV light that oxidizes any contaminants in the pool. 

This process repeats a total of 3 times.

Our tank is likely to have some of the cleanest water you've ever been in.

Don’t drink coffee beforehand (it can make your system jittery). 

Don't shave or wax since the salt water can irritate your skin.

Nope. We will have towels, ear plugs, and products to use in the shower before and after your float. 

If you wear contacts, bring a lens case and contact solution with you. If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb. 

Each room is fully private, and you go into the tanks nude—so there’s no need to bring a bathing suit.

Plan to arrive 15 minutes before your float to give yourself time to check in and transition into the space.

People with claustrophobia report having a calm experience. Once inside the tank, you are able to lose awareness of the walls around you and this allows you to rest. 

As well, you are able to keep the door open or the lights on if you want.

Floating may cause discomfort because :

  • We are conditioned to distractions and stimuli around us in our busy day-to-day lives. It can feel unfamiliar or uncomfortable when these stimuli are removed. 


  • When freed from these distractions we create space for other experiences to present themselves. 

If you do feel discomfort, try focusing on your breathing and remaining with the experience to your degree of tolerance. 

Otherwise, you can exit the tank and end your float at any time.

Nope. If you fall asleep, the water is so buoyant you'll stay afloat. 

The worst that can happen is getting a bit of salt water in your eyes.

The salt could strip the color. If there is still some color coming out in the shower at home you should wait a couple of more days/showers.

Floating and fresh tattoos do not mix! 

(salt + open wounds = ouch) 

The water solution could cause fading or discoloration of your tattoo and permanently ruin its aesthetic appeal. 

Tattoo artists/floaters suggest waiting 4-6 weeks.

Yes, just follow the same protocol as if you were going to the pool.

Yes! It is said by many to provide relief from the stress and strain of pregnancy by allowing your body to float in a weightless environment. 

If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.

Showering helps to rinse your body before entering the tank. Showering after the float helps to remove any epsom salt from your body and hair. 

These showers function as a calm sensory transition for beginning and ending your float experience.

Nope. The epsom salt will leave your skin smooth and soft. You should drink plenty of water the rest of the day. 

Your body will absorb the Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate), which is a good thing!

The first tank was developed in 1954 by John C. Lilly. It involved full submersion in water and a breathing mask that covered your face. 

The first 'laying down', commercial tanks were invented in the early 70’s.
