Frequently Asked Questions
We get it. Floating is pretty unique. It pushes us out of our comfort zone. Here is a list of questions to help clarify what to expect and put the mind at ease.
What if i’m claustrophobic?
This is probably our most common concern. Our DreamWater pods have one of the largest interior cabin spaces on the market. They are 8 feet long, 5 feet wide, and you have about 4 feet in front of you as you float on the surface. You always have the option to float with the pod lid open, or even cracked. However, we do recommend that you try floating with the lid closed at first to push yourself.
Do I wear a Swimsuit?
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible. All float rooms are equipped with a shower, so if you choose to float in the nude (95% of our clients do) you can do so knowing you have complete privacy. Also, a swimsuit could interfere with the sensory deprivation experience.
Do I need to bring anything?
Nope, just yourself. We will have towels, robes, ear plugs, and products to use in the shower before and after your float. If you wear contacts, do be sure to bring a lens case and contact solution with you.
Can I float if I am menstruating?
Yes, just follow the same protocol as if you were going to the pool.
Can i float if i’m pregnant?
Absolutely! As with anything we advise you check with your doctor first. When we opened our doors, Breezy was 3 months along. She enjoyed floating while pregnant to relax, ease swelling, and connect with her baby. The temperature of the water is safe for pregnancy, meaning expecting mothers can enjoy the water without worrying about the risks of raising their core body temperature.
Why do I need to shower before and after my float?
Showering before the float helps to rinse and cleanse your body before entering the tank. It also helps keep our tanks as sanitary as possible. Showering after the float helps to remove any epsom salt from your body before you dress. Also, showering before and after functions as a nice sensory transition for entering and exiting your float experience.
WHat if I fall asleep? WIll I drown?
Nope. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.
What if I want to fLoat longer than 60 minutes?
We are working on adding a 90 minute option to be available all the time. But if you are a member, extending your float is just one of the many perks. Members have the option of extending the time of their float if there is room in the schedule.
