Even though floatation therapy has become fairly widespread in recent years, many people still have questions about floating. Although there are many questions that you may have, here are the answers to some of the most common questions surrounding floatation therapy.

Ocean Float FAQ

Do I need to bring anything?

We have all of the essentials for your float experience. If you wear contacts, please remember to bring your case and saline solution with you. If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a brush or comb. We recommend not shaving the day of your appointment or waxing. Please bring your own conditioner or/and your favorite moisturizer for face and body.

What if I am claustrophobic?

Being in the float room is more like floating in space than being in an enclosed space. You’re always in control of your environment. You may keep the door open and light on if you like. People with extreme cases of claustrophobia have consistently reported no problems floating.

How do you keep the Float Room clean?

The water is mostly medical grade Epsom salt and is inherently sterile. We use a bromine pump that filters 100% of water thoroughly twice between each session.

Will the salt hurt my skin?

No. The Epsom salts we use will not dry out your skin or dehydrate you. You will leave the float tank feeling smooth and silky.

What if I can’t swim?

The tank is only filled with 10 inches of water and has such a high density of Epsom salt that any individual, big or small, will float like a cork atop the water.

What happens if I fall asleep?

Essentially, nothing! Floating is such a relaxing and peaceful experience that falling asleep is quite normal but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat. If you do fall asleep, you will be woken by the soft music turning on at the end of your session.
