Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ Sheet: Float Therapy

  1. What is float therapy? 

    Float therapy, also known as sensory deprivation or flotation therapy, is a relaxation technique in which an individual floats in a tank filled with water and Epsom salt. The water is heated to skin temperature, and the high salt concentration allows the person to float effortlessly, providing a weightless, calming environment.
     

  2. What are the benefits of float therapy?

    Float therapy offers numerous benefits, including stress reduction, pain relief, improved sleep, enhanced creativity, and faster recovery from physical activities. It can also help with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.
     

  3. Is float therapy safe?

    Yes, float therapy is generally safe for most people. However, if you have any medical conditions or concerns, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider before trying float therapy.
     

  4. How long is a typical float session?

    A typical float session lasts 60 to 90 minutes, but some facilities may offer shorter or longer sessions based on individual preferences.
     

  5. What should I wear during a float session?

    Most people choose to float nude, as it allows for a more sensory-free experience. However, if you're more comfortable wearing a swimsuit or other lightweight clothing, that's perfectly fine.
     

  6. Do I need to bring anything with me to a float session?

    Float centers usually provide everything you need for a session, including towels, earplugs, and shower essentials. However, it's a good idea to check with the specific center beforehand to see if they recommend bringing anything else.
     

  7. Can I float if I'm pregnant?

    Pregnant women can generally float safely, and many find it helps alleviate discomfort during pregnancy. However, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider before trying float therapy while pregnant.
     

  8. Can I float if I have claustrophobia?

    Many people with claustrophobia find that they can comfortably float without any issues. Float tanks are generally spacious, and you can choose to keep the tank door open or partially open if that helps alleviate any concerns.
     

  9. Should I avoid float therapy if I've recently dyed my hair?

    It's recommended to wait at least one week after dying your hair before participating in float therapy. This is because the saltwater solution in the float tank may cause hair dye to fade or bleed, and it can also affect the water quality in the tank.
     

  10. How do you ensure the cleanliness of the float tanks?

    Our float tanks are maintained to the highest standards of cleanliness. We utilize a combination of UV light sterilization, a 1-micron filter, and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to ensure a safe and sanitary environment for each float session. The water in the tanks is continuously filtered and treated to provide the cleanest possible experience for our clients.
     

  11. How should I prepare for a float therapy session?

    To prepare for a float therapy session, follow these steps:

    • Avoid consuming caffeine or large meals for at least 2 hours before your session.

    • Remove contact lenses, jewelry, and any hair accessories before floating.

    • Do not shave or wax on the day of your session, as the saltwater can cause irritation to freshly shaved or waxed skin.

    • Take a warm shower to remove any oils, lotions, or perfumes from your skin and hair. This will help ensure the cleanliness of the float tank and enhance your floating experience.

    • Use the restroom prior to your session to avoid any distractions. - Set an intention for your session, such as stress relief, personal growth, or simply relaxation. Having a clear purpose can help you focus and make the most of your time in the float tank. - Approach your float therapy session with an open mind. Every individual's experience is unique, and keeping an open mind will allow you to fully embrace the benefits of floating without any preconceived expectations. - Allow yourself ample time before and after your session so you don't feel rushed, which can make it easier to relax and fully enjoy the experience.

    • Remember that float therapy is a personal journey, and the key to a successful session is to be present and open to the experience. Enjoy your time in the float tank and let your body and mind fully relax and rejuvenate.
