We have created a completely private space to enjoy a unique and personalized flotation experience.
Our location is quiet and our goal is to support one person at a time... that is, you!
We have devised a unique protocol to address the effects that stress, tension, physical and emotional traumas as well as performance athletics have on our bodies.
Benefits of Floating
Our Sauna can be set to a temperature that best suites your constitution. Himalayan salt and eucalyptus oil add a level of respiratory relief.
The benefits of an Infrared sauna are complementary to the benefits of Floating and include but are not limited to the following:
Do I need to prepare myself for floating? The things you should know are: a) If you shave 2 or 3 hours before using the tank, the shaved skin will sting for a few minutes. If you can postpone your shaving, you will probably be more comfortable. b) If you wear contact lenses, it would be a problem if any salt water got into your eyes. If you remove your contacts you don't have to be concerned about it. c) If you have caffeine before you float, it may interfere with your ability to relax.
Should I eat before I go into the tank? You can eat. If you eat a very heavy meal you may spend a lot of time listening to your digestive juices. And, on the other hand, if you get very hungry you may spend a lot of time listening to your digestive juices. Moderation works.
Is anyone not supposed to use the tank? We don't recommend tank use for epileptics whose epilepsy is not under medical control; for people under the influence of alcohol, drugs, those with infectious diseases, open skin wounds, or those with suicidal tendencies. Can pregnant women use the tank? Yes. We suggest that pregnant women inform their physicians or midwives and get their opinion prior to using the tank. The reports received from pregnant women have been enthusiastic. As their bodies get heavier, floating is a great relief from the pull of gravity. Floating has given many women a welcome rest. Can I use the tank if I'm menstruating? Yes, if you use a tampon. Can two people float in the tank at the same time? We don't recommend it. Floating in the tank is intended to be a private, individual experience.
What effect does salt water have on my skin and hair? The Epsom salt solution seems to be beneficial to the skin. We have listened to some opinions that say epsom salt is very good for strengthening the hair. We know it's good for roses, why not hair? You thoroughly rinse the salt from your hair and body when you leave the tank. Can You Wear a Bathing Cap? Yes, you can wear one, but it won't keep your hair perfectly dry. It would be too tight around your head to keep your hair dry.
Do you wear anything in the tank? Since it is a private experience, we recommend your birthday suite. Most people don't wear anything. Anything you wear will press against your body, becoming a distraction. In this regard imagine it as similar to getting into your bathtub.
Do people sleep in the tank? Yes, some people fall asleep in the tank, and some people use the tank for sleeping. Can people drown in the tank? No. If you lay face down in it, a sting of the salt on the eyes, nose and mouth would wake you up.
Is there a right way to Float? All the ways are right. Each person should find whatever position is comfortable for them. Some people float with their hands at their sides, some with their hands folded across their chest or abdomen, or behind their heads. You can keep your head at either end or sit up if you like. You may float with the door open or closed. Float the way it is comfortable for you and explore what is best for you.
Could you get electrocuted? No.
What if I'm claustrophobic? People who say that they are afraid to use the tank because they are claustrophobic probably assume that they will be confined to an enclosed space. However, you can use the tank with the door open if you wish. You are in control of the situation and can get in and out whenever you want. You should use it in the way it's comfortable for you. The tank is such an excellent place to go through claustrophobia that if you want to get rid of yours, it is probably the best place to do it.
How long do people usually stay in the tank? The first time public places usually schedule an hour. Some people use the tank for shorter sessions and others find 2 or 3 hour sessions very valuable. Of course the "perfect" way is to stay in until you want to get out. You may be able to arrange that in a public place.Experiment with your own time in the tank to discover what is best for you. One of the many advantages of having your own tank is that you can set the amount of time that is best for you without any restrictions.
What will it be like for me? We don't know what it will be like for you since it is such an individual experience. The most common reports are profound peace and relaxation, deep concentration and creativity.
