Frequently Asked Questions

Can anyone try floating?

We would love it if everyone could experience flotation therapy. However, we do have a few restrictions to keep in mind:

Unfortunately, you cannot use our flotation tanks if:

  • You are under the age of 17 and are not accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • You have recently dyed your hair and color rinses out when you shower.
  • You are menstruating.
  • You have an open wound, a lesion, a recent incision, a tattoo or a piercing that is not fully healed.
  • You have symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea.
  • You have any communicable or infectious disease or illness.
  • You suffer or have suffered from any claustrophobia or small or enclosed space anxiety-provoking disorders (Although this is frequently an intitial concern, our tanks are more spacious and welcoming than many "float pods."  Click here for photos!)
  • You are pregnant and have not received permission to float from your health-care provider.
  • You have chronic heart disease, incontinence, or seizures and have not received permission to float from your health-care provider.
  • You are epileptic, unless your epilepsy is under medical control so that you are in sufficient control of your seizures not to endanger yourself in the flotation tank.
  • You suffer from diabetes, unless your diabetes is under medical control so that you are in sufficient safety to use the flotation tank.
  • You are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

How do I prepare for floating?

  • Do not shave or wax prior to floating to avoid discomfort in the salt.
  • Eat a light, healthy meal an hour and a half prior to your float. You don't want to be too full or too hungry while you're floating.
  • Avoid caffeine beforehand so you can relax easier.
  • Engaging in a quiet and calming activity or meditating prior to your appointment can help your body and mind ease into relaxation quicker, but is not necessary.

Do I need to bring anything?

You really only need to bring yourself!
You may want to bring a hairbrush, deoderant, or face cream if you typically use those after showering. If you have contacts, you should bring a solution to place your contacts in while you're floating. Towels, earplugs, and everything else will be provided. 

What if I'm claustrophobic? 

People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating in our Wave Float Rooms. You're always in control of the environment and you can exit at any time. You will feel much less enclosed in our tanks as you would in typical "float pods" you might be used to seeing. Click here to see photos!

How are the tanks kept clean?

The highly sterile salt water is treated with Hydrogen peroxide and is fully filtered a minimum of six times between each float, and is continuously being filtered whenever the tank is not in use. The water filteres through a 5 micron filtration system, is sanitized with a UV light, and is pumped through an ozone purification system. 

Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! You cannot float in the same tank together, but we have two tanks so you can book two floats at the same time.

Can I float if I have my period?

We kindly ask that you reschedule if you are menstruating.​

Do you have a Cancellation Policy?
