What if I'm claustrophobic?
You can choose to float with the door open or closed, with the light on or off. There is no right or wrong way to float. You are in complete control of the float environment. We highly recommend floating with the door closed to get the maximum benefits out of your floating experience.

Floating while pregnant relieves stress on the body.
What if I fall asleep?
No worries it happens!
The float tank is filled with 12 inches of water and 1000 lbs. of Epsom salt and is incredibly buoyant. You will be floating on the surface of the water and will not sink. If you happen to get salt in your eyes, a towel and spray bottle filled with water are provided to clear your eyes.
Are the tanks clean?
Due to the salt content of the water pathogens and bacteria cannot survive. Before and after each float session the tank if filtered thru a UV filtration system. In addition each floater is required to shower before entering the tank to remove any body oils or contaminants. Also, a shower after each float is recommended to remove salt from hair and skin.
