- Is there a typical tank user?
Not that we know of. People of all ages and walks of life seem to enjoy the experience equally. What seems typical is how glowing and peaceful everyone looks when they come out of the tank.
- Is anyone not supposed to use the tank?
We do not recommend use tank for epileptics whose epilepsy is not under medical control, for anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or for those with infectious diseases or open skin wounds.
- Why use flotation tank regularly?
The more you use flotation tanks the better it gets! Each flotation tank session is unique, and two floats are rarely the same.
- Can pregnant women use the tank?
YES! We suggest pregnant women inform their physicians and midwives or get their opinion prior to using the tank. The reports received from pregnant women have been enthusiastic. As their bodies get heavier, floating is a great relief from the pull of gravity. Floating has given many women a welcome rest.
- Can I use the tank if I'm menstruating?
No. We will suggest you come when your period is over.
- What effect does salt water have on my skin and hair?
It is beneficial to the skin and hair as it contains over 100 different minerals. People leave the tank with softer-feeling skin.
- Can you wear a bathing cap?
Yes, you can wear one, but it likely will not keep your hair completely dry.
- Do you wear anything in the tank?
Since it is a private experience, most people don't wear anything. Anything you wear will touch against your body, becoming a distraction.
- Do people sleep in the tank?
Yes, some people feel it is very easy to fall asleep in the tank, and some people just use the tank for sleeping! Even those who say they never sleep on their backs in bed are often able to in the tank. It is very difficult to roll over in the tank because of the density of the solution, and if any of the salt solution gets in your eyes, mouth or nose, you would wake up immediately.
- Is there a right way to do it?
As long as you feel compertable. Some people float with their hands at their sides, some with hands folded across their chest or abdomen, or behind their heads. You may float with the door open or closed, eyes open or closed. Float the way it is comfortable for you and explore what is best for you.
- Will I float?
Yes. It is impossible not to float in the tank. Your face is out of the water and your ears are underwater.
- Is there enough air in the tank?
Yes. The tank is not airtight, but there is also fresh air brought in by an air circulation system.
- Can two people float in the tank at the same time?
We do not recommend it. Floating in the tank is intended to be a private, individual experience.
- How is the water cleaned between sessions?
We have ozone filtration system that runs after each session. Besides, the water is high salinity - a concentration so high no living microorganism can survive. In addition, a ultra-violet light sterilization system is used. UV is the safest, most effective system available and uses the same technology as water purification systems used for drinking water. To maintain cleanliness, a shower is mandatory before floating.
