Floatation Therapy (also known as Sensory Deprivation Therapy) means reaching a state of absolute tranquility by floating. When floating, the body, salt water, and air inside the tank all rest at 35C, and this equilibrium creates a relaxing feeling of weightlessness. The result is a feeling of deep relaxation, which has proven to have healing properties and help with tension, pain, stress and fatigue. Let Floatation take away the pressures of the outside world and allow your mind and body enjoy a state of mind where stress drifts away.
What do I need to bring?
You don't need to bring anything. We provide you with everything you need including amenities for pre- and post-float showers - including clean towels and earplugs.
The rooms are private and our tanks are sterilized between sessions so there´s no need to wear a bathing suit. Bathing suits will also prevent you from experiencing your session fully and we don´t recommend you to wear one. If you wear contact lenses, we recommend you to remove them and place them in their case during your session.
Can I eat and drink before floating?
Yes, we recommend a small meal prior to your session to prevent distractions such as hunger and a growling stomach.
Can I drink coffee or tea before floating?
We recommend you to stay away from beverages containing caffeine a couple of hours prior to your session. It may interfere with your ability to relax and enjoy your session fully. Since our bathrooms are located outside of our tank rooms, we recommend you to stay hydrated but not drink too much prior to your session.
Is the water in the tank clean?
The water in the tank is always clean before each session. The extremely high level of salinity (about 35%) creates a sterile environment where no microorganisms can reproduce. Each tank is equipped with its own high tech filtration system using mechanical filtrations and UV rays, making sure that each tank is sterilized between sessions. In addition to that, Peroxide is also used as an extra step in the purification process.
Can I float with other people?
Floatation is designed as an individual experience. We do allow couple floating for first timers if they feel a bit nervous. But for the second float, we always recommend floating alone.
What happens if I fall asleep in the tank?
Falling asleep in the tank is very common and very comfortable. The density of the salt solution makes it very difficult to roll over by accident. If you for some reason you do manage to doze off, the worst that can happen is getting salt water in your eyes, mouth or nose; an experience that will guarantee to wake you up.
What happens if I get salt water in my eyes?
It will sting and you may experience discomfort but it´s not dangerous. Just open the tank door, grab a towel and gently dab the salt water off then continue the float session.
How often should I float?
You can float every day! The effects from floating can be experienced immediately after each session and usually last longer than one day. We recommend regular sessions and our regular guests usually fit in one or two sessions each week in their busy schedules.
Is this some kind of new-age trend?
Floatation is studied and researched by several major universities around the world and they all come to the same conclusion; flotation helps. Floatation has proven health benefits, which you will experience after just one session.
