Will I feel claustrophobic inside?
No. The Cabin is 4×8 and almost 7 feet high. They are very spacious inside with light and music IF NEEDED and will have good ventilation.
Is the water cold?
No, the water in the Cabin is heated to 92-94° F which is the ideal temperature for floating.
Can I accidentally turn over in the water?
No. The water is very shallow, usually just ten inches deep. Also, it is much heavier than ordinary water because of the added Epsom Salts, so you float very easily. You float on your back with absolutely no effort and there is no tendency to roll over. People often sleep in float tanks and there is no risk of rolling over even if you are asleep.
Will I have enough air?
Yes. The air inside is warm and it rises by convection. There is a vent at the top for the air to leave and fresh air enters near the water line.
What if I can’t swim?
No problem. You just step in, sit down, and lay back in only 10 inches of water. You can touch the bottom with your hands. You just let the warm salty water do the work of floating you around.
What about being in the dark?
That’s up to you. There is a light switch in the float cabin and a remote that controls the entire room. You control the lights at all times. You can leave them on all through your float session. You can have music playing all through too if you like, and you can choose the music in advance. Floating is the best and fastest way to relax and many people find that silence and the dark help relax even more. But it’s up to you, either way, floating is wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable.
What is Epsom Salt and why is it used?
Epsom Salt is Magnesium Sulphate. It is found naturally in many spa waters. It is very different from sea salt or table salt which is mainly Sodium Chloride. Epsom Salt has been used for centuries to treat skin complaints and is used as an anti-inflammatory. It is non-toxic, it won’t harm you if you swallow some, but try not to.
Can I float if I’m pregnant?
Yes. Floating relieves all of the weight of your baby off of your body. Please consult with your physician before coming in.
Do I float naked?
Yes, but if you must, avoid an expensive bathing suit as the salt will discolour the material. A thin, tight-fitting fabric would be best to avoid feeling the weight against your body.
