Frequently Asked Questions
What services does your business offer, and what makes it different?
We offer Float Therapy, Infrared Sauna, Vibroacoustic Sound Bed, and Migun Massage. We are locally owned and operated. We opened the float studio to share something with others that has had a profound impact on our lives. We have put everything into our business because of how strongly we believe in floating. It has truly changed our lives for the better.
So, what is it exactly?
You float like a cork in 10 inches of water with 1,000 lbs of medical grade Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate). The air and water are the same temperature as your skin, which allows your body to absorb a large amount of Magnesium. The water is zero gravity, so you won't feel a difference between the water and air after some time. You can be in complete darkness (if you choose, there is a light in the pods), and you won't hear anything unless you opt for music. You are in an environment where you can fully relax every single muscle in your body, and your mind has a chance to be removed from everything in the world (work, kids, electronic devices, etc). We call it the "ultimate reset button."
What are the benefits?
It helps with many things and the benefits vary from person to person, but some of the main benefits are Stress Relief, Relaxation, Pain Relief (including muscle and injury recovery), Meditation, Anxiety and Depression Relief. It helps with Sleep Deprivation, Heightened Awareness and Creativity, Eliminating Unwanted Habits, Skin Ailments, etc.
How do you clean the water? Do you change it?
We filter the water before and after every float, and we replenish it! As it is more dense than the Dead Sea, the solution itself is completely sterile, so no living organism can survive in it. The filtration includes a UV-filter combined with Ozone and H2O2 as necessary for sterilization. Every floater does a pre-float rinse to remove products and oils on the hair and body, so everyone enters the tank as clean as possible. Lastly, we cleanse the water daily with all natural products.
How often do people normally float?
Most people experience immediate relief after just one float, but to receive the full benefits and a full understanding of what flotation therapy can help with, it is recommended trying 3 weekly 60 or 90 minute floats.
What do I need to bring? What do I wear?
We provide all the essentials for the shower and float, and we ask that you float nude. You are in a private suite, and it is best not to wear anything in the tank for complete sensory deprivation (and also to avoid bringing in oils, sunscreen and dirt from a swim suit).
Provided: towel, shampoo, conditioner, soap, ear plugs, body lotion, deodorant, combs, Vaseline, contact solution and container, blow dryer.
How do I book my appointment?
Please use our online booking button on the tool bar that says "book now". If you are a first time customer, make sure to use our promo code "firstfloat" at checkout to get our introdictory special of $49.
How many float pods do you have? Can more than one person go at the same time?
We have two pods, and floating is an individual experience. If you would like to come with someone, please book appointments that are available at the same time.
How do I need to prepare for my float?
-Avoid caffeine intake 4-5 hours before your appointment (so you are not stimulated)
-Be well hydrated
-Have a snack or meal before your float (hunger is a powerful distraction)
-You will be showering before and after in the same room as the tank, so you may bring anything you would normally use for after your float (deodorant, face cream, hair brush, etc.)
-Avoid shaving the day of your float
-If you wear contacts and cannot nap in them, bring a case to put them in during your float
What if I am claustrophobic?
Most people who are claustrophobic express little to no fear once they are inside the tank. The environment itself allows you to be relaxed and calm while inside, and floaters report that it feels like they are floating in space or on a cloud. However, if you do feel uncomfortable in any way, you have full control and are able to get out, or crack the door, or leave it completely open at any time.
What if I am pregnant?
Please always consult with a physician prior to deciding to float when pregnant. Floating can relieve much of the stress and pain during pregnancy and has been reported to create a very unique relationship with a mother and her child while in a session. The water is zero gravity so there is no pressure on your body.
Who should not float?
-Women who are heavily menstruating
-People with Epilepsy
-If you have open wounds or infectious skin conditions
-High risk and first trimester pregnancies (especially if nausea is easily triggered)
-Please wait 7 days if you have had your hair colored
-Absolutely no temporary hair dye is allowed
