What should I bring with me?

Do I need a swimsuit?
That’s up to you, but we encourage you to float in the nude. Strings and ties may be distracting, and a clingy, wet suit might detract from the experience of sensory deprivation. Not only do you have a private room including a private shower, but you will also be completely in the dark when you float.
Is it safe?
YES. The water in each tank is 11” deep, and it is nearly impossible to accidentally flip over because of the way the body lies on top. The water line does not approach the mouth or nose. You may exit the float tank at any time and staff are always present on site to assist you. Epsom salt is commonly used as an over-the-counter remedy for multiple ailments, and although we highly discourage it, swallowing the water is not dangerous. If the salt water gets in your eye, it is only irritating and can be easily flushed out with fresh water.
What if I fall asleep?
Some clients are so relaxed by their floats that they drift into a peaceful sleep. This is fine! You are truly feeling the relaxation effects of your session. The only danger is that you may turn your head and be awakened by the water.
The music that signals the end of your float gradually increases in volume, and is enough to wake up even the most sublimely relaxed of clients. We promise to play trumpets through the speakers of your float tank if our usual soft crescendo of music does not wake you up.
Is the water clean?
Yes. The incredibly high salt content of the water prevents bacteria and other microorganisms from surviving within the tank. In addition, we filter the water thoroughly, zap it with antimicrobial ultraviolet light, and use an odorless and safe disinfectant at an optimal level for sanitation. This is more than is done for any hot tub or swimming pool. As a result, the water is very clean. We also ask that clients use the showers in the float rooms before and after their sessions. Soap and shampoo are provided in the showers.
