Our most frequently asked questions:
What if I’m claustrophobic?
It’s okay… many people are, but we don’t use float tanks, rather, float rooms… you can stand up inside them. Also, the light is controlled from inside, giving you total control of your environment.
Is it private?
Yes, you float within your own private room (so there is no requirement to wear a bathing suit or swim trunks). Each of our rooms has its own shower and is for your exclusive use for the duration of your session.
Will my skin wrinkle?
No. Because the water contains high salt levels it doesn’t rob your skin of salt, (which is what causes wrinkling). Rather, it leaves you skin soft and silky.
Am I locked in?
No, the door simply pushes open. Also the light switch is located inside the Floatroom.
How is water hygiene maintained?
Pure float adheres to the most stringent health and safety regulations. The water contains mostly salt so the solution is sterile. We add a limited amount of chemicals of the same kind you would find in a swimming pool to ensure the room is safe and clean. To add to that, we filter the water thoroughly between each float session.
What do I bring?
Just an open mind and a tired body! We provide everything else…towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and a hairdryer. However, you may want to bring a brush or comb for after you get out.
Can I float if I’m pregnant?
Of course! Floating has been proven to relieve much of the stress and discomfort of pregnancy and can offer you and your baby deep relaxation.
How many times do I need to float to notice results?
Though many notice results after their first float, some will notice improvements after their second or third float. This gives the body enough time to adjust to the new environment. This is also the reason why we offer three floats in our introduction package.
Are there people who shouldn’t float?
You should not float if you:
Have not been shown how to use the float room by a qualified person; have open or bleeding wounds; suffer from incontinence or uncontrolled epilepsy; have been medically advised not to float; have a special or lacquered hairdo which you wish to keep; are not confidant of being able to get out due to lack of personal mobility (if unsure, please request help getting in and out of the float room ).
Can I float when I’m menstruating?
Yes, just follow the same protocol as you would going swimming or in a hot tub.
Can I drown if I fall asleep?
No, the epsom salts would keep you afloat and if you were to turn over then the salt water would wake you up right away.
