Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring anything?

We supply everything you need, ear plugs, shampoo/conditioner and hairdryers (When no other sessions are in progress). So in most situations you only need to bring yourself

What if I’m claustrophobic?

Being in the tank can be claustrophobic for some people. Although you can take ease in the fact you’re always in control of your environment. You may keep the sliding door open and light on inside the tank until you feel comfortable.

Do I wear anything in the tank?

Clothing isn’t recommended when you float, the tactile sensation from any sort of clothing against the body may take away from the experience. One of the objectives in floating is to minimise the amount of stimulation for your mind to focus on and the feeling of clothing is one of them.

If you feel uncomfortable and would like to wear a bathing suit you are more than welcome to.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t float?

  • If you have recently had a tattoo you will need to wait at least 1 week before floating.
  • If you have had your hair dyed recently you will need to wait a few days or until the dye is not longer running.
  • If you have any open skin wounds, extreme hypotension or suffer from epilepsy you will be advised not to float for the your safety and the safety of our other clients.
  • If you suffer from a heart condition (or wear a pacemaker), asthma, allergies (particularly to salt, bromine or magnesium), severe skin conditions (psoriasis, eczema), very low blood pressure we recommend that you seek approval from a medical practitioner before floating.
  • If you are pregnant, try not to float in your first semester. Floating is an extremely great tool to alleviate lower back pain for pregnant women. Seek a medical practitioner’s advice after the first semester to get the best out of floating.

Small cuts and abrasions can be covered with a little Vaseline that we supply.

What is epsom salt?

Epsom salt is the common name for magnesium sulphate heptahydrate and is essentially classified as a naturally occurring mineral compound. Studies have shown that magnesium and sulphate are both readily absorbed through the skin and help regulate enzyme activity, reduce inflammation, and aid in the absorption of nutrients.

Will i drown if i fall asleep?

No, but some people relax so much they do fall asleep, it is virtually impossible to drown due to the extremely high buoyancy level of the water caused by the high levels of dissolved Epsom salt.
