Yes, but you're not submerged in water, you don't eat ritualistic mushrooms, and only a small percentage of floaters turn into proto-human monkeys.
Towels, earplugs, and everything else you might need will be provided.
People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating, even in smaller sized float rooms.
Nope. Some people fall asleep (and say its the best sleep they ever had), but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat.
The salt water is fully filtered between each float to ensure a safe and clean environment. While there’s a huge amount of Epsom salt in the water, which is beneficial in keeping the water clean, we also use ozone and UV. Trust us, it's clean.
Sure! But not for floating with. But it can be great to have someone to talk to about the experience afterwards.
It's best to wear absolutely nothing. You do not want any distractions from anything that might be rubbing or touching your skin.
The world is a little slow at catching on at times, but floating has been around for more than 60 years. There is tons of published research out there to back it up!
First you do a quick rinse in the shower. Then you float for your allotted amount of time. The lights in the pool will slowly come back on letting you know when your session is done. Then you will step out back into the shower to wash the salt from your body and from your hair. But of course, if you want that beach wave look then don't shampoo. Lastly you will get dressed, dry your hair if you want, gather your thoughts.
We encourage clients to check with their physician when beginning any new health regimen, such as float therapy.
However, floating is SAFE for just about everyone.
Those with epileptic conditions and/or kidney, liver disease (as the kidneys are responsible for processing Magnesium) are asked to take extra precautions and consult with their physician prior to floating. Most Diabetics are comfortable removing their insulin pump for a duration of time to float. You know your body better than anyone, talk to your Dr if you have any concerns. We advise anyone on chemotherapy to not float during that time. It’s possible that because of the detoxifying effects of floating you could negate the effectiveness of the treatment. If you have any questions please feel free to ask or again check with your Dr.
