  • Do I need to bring anything?
    No. We will supply towels, gowns, ear plugs, shampoo/conditioner, and hairdryers. If you wear contact lenses/glasses, bring a case to store them in. You may like to bring a brush/comb or a pair of swimmers if you feel uncomfortable floating naked.
  • How do you keep the tanks clean?
    We filter and sanitise the tanks entirely after every use. The water is filtered between each session for at least 15-20 minutes and is filtered hourly around the clock for at least 15 minutes. The tanks are skimmed and cleaned using hot water, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and alcohol wipes after each session and at the end of the day. Water is tested at least once a day to ensure optimal cleanliness and parameters. The saline solution does not support parasitic, fungal, or bacterial life in the water. Our tanks are much safer than using a public pool or spa.
  • What if I'm claustrophobic?
    You are always in control of your float tank. You may keep the sliding door open and the light on. People with extreme cases of claustrophobia have consistently reported no problems.
  • What if I am menstruating?
    For hygiene reasons anyone who is menstruating is not able to float. Please contact us to reschedule your appointment.
  • Can I drown if I fall asleep?
    No. Some people fall asleep while floating. The water is so buoyant you stay afloat. We will give you a floating pillow if you prefer.
  • Can I float if I am pregnant?
    Pregnant women love floating. Many feel a deeper connection to their baby. You will have to get permission from your Doctor before you come in.
  • Is the water hot like a spa?
    No. The water is warmed to skin receptor neutral temperature of 34.5. This is the ideal temperature for floating for long periods.
  • Are there any negative side effects?
    There are virtually no negative side effects. All the effects of deep sensory relaxation are wholly beneficial and work simultaneously at a physical, mental, and emotional level.
  • I've just had my hair dyed. Can I still float?
    Not really. There's no guarantee that the epsom salts won't strip the colour from your hair. We recommend waiting at least 2 weeks after you have dyed your hair. There's also the risk of your hair dye discolouring the water in the tank which would mean a complete clean out and change of water at your expense.
  • I just got a tattoo, should I float?
    Floating and fresh tattoos do not mix! Not only could floating with a fresh tattoo be painful (salt + open wounds = ouch) but the water solution could cause fading or discoloration of your tattoo and permanently ruin its aesthetic appeal. How long you should wait before floating depends on the tattoo and how quickly it heals, but we suggest waiting 4-6 weeks.
  • Do I wear anything in the tank?
    No. Wearing a swimming costume presses against the body and takes away from the experience. You are in the tank alone and your room is private. It’s just like getting into a bath.
  • What is Epsom Salt?
    Epsom salt is magnesium sulphate and is non-toxic. It has been used for centuries for it’s healing properties. It raises the density of the water making you float. It softens the skin and is great if you have a magnesium sulphate deficiency.
  • How should I prepare for my first sauna experience?
    Try to arrive 10 minutes early so we can talk you through your first session. It is important to make sure you are well hydrated before & after any sauna session for maximum benefit & detoxification. Try to drink 500mls an hour before your appointment. Pleas limit any personal care products on your body before a session. Clean skin will make it easier for your body to cleanse & clear out all the toxins & impurities. Feel free to bring your favourite book or connect your music to the bluetooth in the sauna.
  • What happens after my sauna?
    Enjoy a cooling shower to wash off any lingering toxins. Ideally avoid using soap, shampoo/conditioner or moisturises after you sauna as it can block up the lovely open pores of your skin & stop the post sauna detox effect. Resting in our lounge area for 10 -30 mins allows your body to transition back to homeostasis (balance). Enjoy more cool water or a cup of herbal tea while you enjoy the afterglow.
  • Do I float before or after a sauna?
    The choice is entirely yours but we recommend having a sauna first. This allows you to be in a relaxed frame of mind even before getting in the tank. A quick, cool shower in the float room before getting into the tank will wash off any remaining toxins. You will be supplied with a cotton gown to get you from one room to the other.
  • What are the benefits of an Infrared Sauna?
    **Anti-Inflammatory - infrared sauna has been shown to reduce inflammatory makers in the body as well as pain associated with inflammation. **Cardiovascular Health - infrared sauna provides a natural boost in circulation and regular use can result in healthy weight loss. **Assists with Sleep - infrared sauna activates the parasympathetic nervous system, leaving us calm, relaxed and better able to cope with busy lives. Infrared sauna is different to to steam or hot rock saunas. It heats the body at a more comfortable temperature (40-70c) without filling our lungs with hot steam that can often be up to 90c. Using infrared sauna is like getting a dose of health-giving sunlight, without the harmful UV that burns your skin. Infrared works by heating the body directly, warming us safely to elevate cardiovascular activity and remove heavy metals and toxins through sweat.
