First Time Floaters

You always remember your first . . . and we want your first float to be the first of many. We’ll also provide you with all of the essentials including soap, shampoo, conditioner, earplugs, and towels. Feel free to bring a swim suit or, you may float au naturel.

The following are some simple guidelines to maximize your first and subsequent float experiences:

  • Avoid shaving or waxing immediately before your float.
  • Remove your contacts.
  • Try not to eat a big meal or consume caffeine before your float.
  • Read and sign the float waiver.

  • Cover any scratches or cuts with the petroleum gel provided.
  • Place the provided earplugs in ears.
  • Step into your float bath and recline on your back.
  • Use the easy in-float controls to control MP3 audio and lights.
  • When your float time is over, you will feel a gentle water movement.

FAQs

What should I wear/bring?

You can float in a swim suit or your birthday suit.

We provide all the things you will need for a successful float: soap, shampoo, conditioner, earplugs, Q-tips and towels. Our Primp Room is equipped with hair dryers and other items to enhance your post-float glow.

What if I am claustrophobic?

You are in control of your own experience. Our float pods are very roomy and most people report no issues with feeling confined. Once the sensory inputs of light and sound are eliminated, you are floating in the 94.1-degree water.  You will quickly lose all sense of where you are and in fact may begin to feel like you are floating in space. We also have an open float room which provides a more spacious environment.

What if I fall asleep?

Some people fall asleep due to their intense state of relaxation. The water is ultra buoyant so you will stay afloat with absolutely no effort – even if you are sleeping. 

How is the float bath cleaned?

The water in our salt baths is amongst the cleanest water you have ever entered. The salt water is sterile due to the high concentration of salt. No bacteria can survive in this environment. Between float sessions, the water is filtered three times and is sanitized with UV light. UV sanitation is more effective than chlorine, protecting against viruses, molds and bacterias. By comparison, public pools and hot tubs must be filtered every six hours. Our triple filtration occurs after every patron.
