What are the Float Rooms like?

How are the float rooms kept clean? Is it clean?

At Float Into Wellness, we have employed the highest level, newest floatation technology for your float experience. The Float tank employs two high-power filtration systems, high-powered UV lights, and automatic hydrogen peroxide disinfectants that continually filter and disinfect the water. We rigorously measure and maintain the pH, alkalinity, specific gravity, and temperature of the rooms. In between floats, trained float technicians manually disinfect all surface areas and ensure the water is completely clear. In addition, all floaters must shower before and after their session. This is most likely to be the cleanest water you will ever be in.

Can I get locked or stuck in the float room?

No, there is no way to get stuck or locked inside. As a matter of fact, you can leave the door opened if you prefer. You are in complete control of your float experience at all times.

Is my float room private?

Your float tank is inside your own private float suite, which also includes your own private sitting or changing area during your visit.

Is there enough air in the room?

The room is designed not to be airtight. It is open and spacious and there is a plentiful air supply.


Who Can Float? 

EVERYONE! You don’t have to be an athlete or active to reap the benefits of floating. Nor do you have to be in pain. Floating is an amazing experience that everyone can benefit from.

Floating is perfect for:

  • Athletes

  • Chronic Pain Sufferers

  • Commuters

  • Laborers

  • Office Workers

  • Senior Citizens

  • Children

Should I float if I am pregnant?

With the okay from your doctor, it is perfectly fine to float while pregnant. Floating offers great benefits for pregnant women. Many moms-to-be find floating helps to relieve joint pain, inflammation, and other discomforts of pregnancy while creating a bonding experience with their unborn child.

Can I float if I have my period?

Yes, you can! For hygiene reasons, you should use appropriate sanitary products as you would for swimming. 


I’m claustrophobic, will I be able to float?

Float room options allow you to leave your float room door open all the way or a little. You also control whether you want your lights fully on or if you want complete darkness. The entrance and exit of a float room are similar to a shower stall and even people with extreme claustrophobia have reported experiencing no problems while floating. Each float room is also equipped with a two way intercom, so you can easily access a person with the touch of a button. It is spacious enough for two people so you can float alone a spread out or have a couples float if you feel more comfortable not being alone for a new experience. 

Can I float if I dyed my hair, have a perm or use keratin on my hair? Will this ruin my hair?

This is a great question. Yes, you can float, but you MUST be sure that the water running through your hair is fully clear before you can get in. There is no guarantee that the salt won’t strip some color or chemicals from your hair. You may wear a swim cap ( we have some available for use) but your hair does still get wet inside cap. If you have chemicals in your hair from a recent dye or perm, you will want to wait 3-4 weeks before you book. There is a fine if your hair dye changes the color of our water. 

Is there a minimum age requirement to float?

There are no age requirements, but all guests under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and a minor waiver form must be completed.

I’m a large person, will I float/fit?

People of all shapes and sizes are welcome and can enjoy floatation therapy. If you’re under 7.5 feet tall or less than 500 pounds, you should be able to float. Beyond that, we will have to find out together.

Can 2 (or more) people float in the same room at once?

Our rooms are designed for single or double use. You can book a couples session for all our services too. it goes nicely booking them all together.

Are there situations in which I will not be permitted to use the flotation room?

We will not allow you to float if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Infectious skin or respiratory disorders

  • Open wounds

  • Incontinent bowel and/or uncontrollable diarrhea

  • Epilepsy or serious mental conditions including suicidal without a doctor’s consent

  • A high-risk pregnancy without doctors consent

What to Expect During Your Float Session

What is flotation therapy?

Flotation therapy utilizes a specially designed private float room that has the mixture of perfect temperature water and therapeutic grade salt which provides immense health and wellness benefits by simply floating in it.

Should I shower before and after floating?

We have a private and fully stocked shower that is available for your use before and after entering the float room. All guests must shower before floating.

Will water get into my ears while I’m floating?

Since the water in the float room will come up past your ears, we recommend using earplugs. We provide a pair for you at your session. They are reusable  and wed love for you to keep them.

What if I can’t swim or if I fall asleep while floating, Will I drown?

Due to the high saline content of the water, people become so buoyant that it is impossible to go below the surface of the water. Even if you fall asleep, nothing will happen; you will simply feel very well-rested.

What should I do if I wear contacts?

You may choose to float either with or without them. The choice is completely up to you. If you choose to float without them, please be sure to bring your case and any solution you might need.

Will this hurt my skin? Can I get dehydrated from soaking for so long?

The saltwater solution is actually healthy for your skin and leaves you feeling soft and silky without pruning. If you have cuts, or scratches, or have just shaved, salt water can sting a little (just like in nature), but subsides quickly. Vaseline is can be provided in your changing suite to protect any sensitivities. 

What’s the longest someone has been in the room?

We recommend floating between sixty and ninety minutes to start. You can work your way up to a longer float at later sessions. Experienced floaters have been known to float for 12 hours in a single session.

Will I be bored? What is it like?

Compared to the constant activity in our everyday lives, floating involves little stimulation to allow for maximum relaxation. As this is a new experience, it will take some time to adjust to. We try to encourage our guests to breathe deeply, open their eyes and let go of any expectations and relax into the float. Overall, every experience is unique to each person.

Will I get cold, like staying too long in a bath?

No, this is another fantastic feature about floating. Smart technology maintains a consistent and perfect water temperature, no matter how long you float.


Preparing For a Float Session

What should I bring to my float session?

We will provide you with everything you need such as towels, robe, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. We do suggest that wearing a sandal or flip flop is best when going between rooms or if you booked multiple services. However, feel free to bring your own bath products, personal towel, and your swimsuit if that makes you feel more comfortable. Remember to bring any personal items such as a brush or contact solution and case.

Do I go naked or wear a swimsuit?

Because you will be floating in your own private float suite, you don’t need to bring a swimsuit. ggggggg  We provide robes for you to wear from the Shower Suite to your private float suite. You can wear a swimsuit if you choose to and you may even wear just undergarments or street clothes. No shoes are allowed inside the tank.

What should I do to prepare for a float session?

You should plan to arrive about 15 minutes prior to your appointment to start your waiver. We also recommend that you avoid shaving for 24 hours before your appointment since salt water can irritate freshly shaved skin. Make sure if you have hair dye, the water runs clear when you rinse it. Also, a float experience is always enjoyed while you are hydrated. making sure you don't go into your appointment dehydrated and also can bring your favorite drink.
