Before you arrive...

1. Have a light meal

It’s distracting if you float on an empty stomach. It’s best to avoid caffeine too (or have it at least five hours before).

2. Be ready to get salty

Refrain from shaving or waxing on the same day, so the salt water won’t sting.

3. Wear your birthday suit

You will not need to bring any swimsuit gear or other clothing for you to float with. No clothing of any kind is allowed in the floating pods for sanitary reasons, as well as both the overall physical and spiritual aspects of the experience.

4. Hello inner beauty

If possible, come without makeup or products on, as you’ll have to wash it off before floating.

Keep Calm, we have you covered

5. Do I need to bring anything?

If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb. Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the pod. Other than that, we provide everything you need (towels, earplugs, body wash/shampoo, hairdryers…)

6. What if I’m claustrophobic?

Being in the floating pod is more like floating in outer space than being shut in a box. You’re always in control of your environment, and even people with extreme claustrophobia have reported having no problems with their time in the floating pod. You can even choose to float with the door open if it makes you more comfortable.


7. Can more than one person float in a floating pod at a time?

Only one person per floating pod. However, we do have 2 pod rooms, so up to 2 people can come float simultaneously in our spa.

What if...?

8. Do I have my own private room?

Yes, you have your own private floating pod room equipped with your own personal shower, which you’ll use before and after your floatation therapy. For this reason, most people do not wear a swimming costume as this presses against the body and takes away from the experience.

9. Will my skin wrinkle like it does in the bathtub?

No. The Epsom salt in the water is a natural skin emollient. Your skin will feel silky smooth.

10. Can I float if I’m pregnant?

Absolutely, pregnant women love floating! There is even a special position you can float in that relieves all of the weight of the baby off of the mother’s body. If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.

Out of curiosity...

11. Can I drown if I fall asleep in there?

No. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.

12. Do I have to stay in the whole time?

You can get out anytime. That said, the 60-minutes usually goes by way faster than you’d expect, most people report being quite surprised when their time is up.
13. How do you clean the Floating Pods?

Floating Therapy is extremely sanitary. With the combination of our filtration system, which runs at a minimum of three complete filtration cycle’s after every float session and with the natural bacterial killing qualities of salt, the water inside the tank is cleaner than tap water. We also use UV light and non-toxic disinfectants in all the pods.
