Can I use the pod if I'm claustrophobic?
Absolutely. People that suffer from claustrophobia can choose to float with the lid open and the lights on. This will ease you into floating in the pod with less anxiety of being claustrophobic. As you relax you can choose to close the lid and turn the lights off as you see fit.
Can I float if I’m pregnant?
Yes. Floating offers relief during pregnancy, especially in the later stages. We recommend avoiding the pod during your first trimester. If you have concerns, talk to your doctor prior to your float sessions.
What if I fall asleep in the pod?
Falling asleep is very possible, however, the water is so buoyant you cannot sink. The pod will wake you when your session is near completion.
Is the float pod hygienic?
Due to the high amount of Epsom salt in the water, bacterial growth is eliminated. In addition, the water in the pod is constantly filtered through a UV/OZONE purification system as well as a pool filter when not in use.
What age do I have to be to enter the pod?
Anyone above the age of 16 is able to float in the pod. This is only for insurance reasons.
Can I drown in the pod?
You cannot drown in the pod unless you are attempting to put your face in the water. There are 1000 pounds of Epson salt making the water so buoyant that you automatically float without trying.
What are some of the benefits of float therapy?
Some of the basic benefits of float therapy are pain relief, sleeping better and stress relief. Float therapy is also proven to be beneficial to those with PTSD.
Why should I float for longer than 60 minutes?
It is scientifically proven that it takes the brain 45 minutes to get to the Theta Wave state (deep relaxation). If you float for only 60 minutes you will only receive 15 minutes of intense relaxation. We recommend starting with a 60 minute float and working your way up to 75 minutes and beyond.
How many people are able to float at a time?
Our float pod is only large enough for one person to float at a time.
How often can I float?
What do I need to bring to my float session?
There is no need to bring anything but yourself. We provide towels, body wash, shampoo and conditioner for your pre- and post-float shower. We also have earplugs which we recommend putting in before your shower to ensure the best seala against the water. Our bathroom has a hair dryer for your use. You don't need a bathing suit since all pods and showers are in a private room. You may also want to bring other personal items that will make you feel more comfortable. Some people feel that they don't want to put on the clothes that they wore all day after showering and being in the pod, so some people bring a change of clothes.
