FAQs On Floating
Would I drown in the floatation tank if I fell asleep?
It is not possible to drown in the tank, the depth of the solution is about 10.5 inches and the density of the solution is such that it will always support you, regardless of your size or weight. If you were to turn over the salt in the water would sting your eyes and wake you, so drowning is not possible. Since you are floating you do not need to know how to swim. Additionally it's not dangerous to fall asleep in the tank, actually; it's even encouraged to fall asleep in the floatation tank - one hour of delta sleep is equivalent to 6 to 8 hours of very deep sleep.
Will I become claustrophobic?
It is very unlikely. The space inside the floatation tank is approximately 4 wide by 8.5 feet long, and you are in complete control and can go in, and out as you wish. You may even float with the door open if you like. Since there is an absence of sensation, space and time so it is difficult to feel claustrophobic within the tank.
Are there any restrictions on who can float?
You should not float if you are presently ill, have incontinence, kidney problems, epilepsy or have an active skin condition.Clients will not be allowed to float if they have Manic Panic hair color products in thier hair, sorry. People with severe medical conditions or are pregnant, should consult their physician before floating. Due to the weightless effect in the tank, pregnant women in the later stages of pregnancy have found floatation tank therapy to be one of the best available pain relief therapies available.
How the tanks are kept clean and disinfected?
There is 1100 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt dissolved in each of our tanks. Salinity is at 1.37 grams per cubic centimeter. The solution is so high in saline that no living microorganism can survive in there. After each session, the entire volume of the solution is pumped out and filtered through a three part filtration and sterilization system utilizing Ultra Violet light and H2O2. UV is the safest most effective system available. It maintains the water's soft, clean and crystal clear appearance. In addition all clients are required to be 100% clean prior to entering the tank.
Can two people float in one tank?
The simple answer is no. Floatation therapy is a solitary act, you would not want another person in your tank. But we do have two tanks if you want to come with a friend.
