Salt Water Floating
Relaxation & Meditation
Float stress, aches and pains away in our tanks filled with 900 pounds of epsom salt. This therapy combines the benefits of epsom salt with sensory deprivation for a relaxing and clearing experience that is like no other.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q : What do I wear in the float tank?
A : We recommend you float nude to get the full sensory deprivation experience. If you are more comfortable wearing your bathing suit, that's ok too!
Q : I just recently dyed my hair. Can I still float?
A : We ask that you wait at least 2 weeks after dying your hair to float. If the pigment is dark and you still see dye coming out when you wash your hair, you will need to wait longer than 2 weeks. Please call if you have questions.
Q : What if I'm a little claustrophobic?
A : The pods are larger than most people think. Inside the pod is 7 ft. long, 4 ft wide and 4.5 ft tall. Also, you have control over the lid. You can open it at any time. If you still feel a little enclosed, you may leave the lid open. Just let us know so that we can turn up the heat so you don't get cold.
Q : Will I REALLY float?!
A : YES! There are 900 pound of epsom salt in the pod. Anyone of any size will float.
"I am a huge float fan! I love how it helps my mind calm down and how I feel like I wrapped up in a cocoon, but in a weightless manner. The room is always very clean and prepared and the pod is perfect. Dana is warm, welcoming and very accommodating. If you haven’t tried floating, I highly recommend it. But try it here." -Deborah SG
Q : What if I can't swim?
A : The pod is only filled with a few inches of water so when you sit in the bottom, the water will generally come up to your waist. Then, when you lean back, you will float without effort. There is no need to know how to swim.
Q : I don't like to have water in my ears. How can I avoid that?
A : We provide single use ear plugs if you prefer not to have water in your ears. If you don't mind, the salt water will not hurt you, even if it gets in your ears.
Q : Do I need to wear goggles?
A : No, your head will float so that your face is above water. You will want to be careful not to drip water in your eyes because it will sting. But there will be a spray bottle and wash cloth in the pod in case you need to flush your eyes.
Q : I'm not sure I'll be able to shut my brain off. Do I have to have it dark and silent?
A : NO! This is YOUR experience. We have options for you to have relaxing music during the float and you can turn the lights and music on and off from buttons inside the pod.
"Did my first float today... I was a little apprehensive but with Dana guiding me along , I had a relaxing experience! I will definitely be scheduling another float, for sure! Soon!" -Carol P
Q : Do I need to bring anything?
A : We have pretty much everything for you to shower and float. If you use any skin or hair care products after you shower, you may want to bring those for after your float.
Q : Can I float when I'm pregnant?
A : YES! After clearing it with your doctor, floating can be an amazing experience for you. The water is less than core body temperature (94-96 degrees). The weightlessness will give your spine and joints some relief and you can spend some uninterrupted time with baby in an environment much like theirs.
Q: What if I fall asleep? Is it safe?
A: Many times our floaters drift off into sleep. It is completely safe. Your head is effortlessly suspended by the salt water, so your nose, eyes and mouth are above the water. It is VERY hard to turn on to your side or belly without meaning to and even if you manage to, the salt water will sting your eyes and wake you up pretty fast!
"I did the 60 minute float today for the first time. Dana was wonderful in explaining everything and making me feel comfortable. The experience was absolutely relaxing! I basically slept/floated the whole time and left feeling refreshed and renewed! Thank you!" -Courtney S.
"I experienced a 90 min. Float last week. It is the definition of tranquility. I really enjoyed it and was surprised I could actually fall asleep while floating in water. So cool!! Everyone should try it. Glad you have it. Just adds to all the cool stuff Heat Yoga has going on." -Terry L.
