IS IT CLEAN?
By far the biggest concern of everyone involved and the most asked question we get. The natural antiseptic saline solution along with powerful pumps and state of the art filtration systems are built into the Dreampod. During a float all filtration stops, allowing you a perfectly silent experience. When your float is over, the 300 gallons of water undergoes a filtration process lasting 15 minutes. At that time, the water is passed through a .5 micron filter (smaller than a human hair) three times ensuring you have a crystal clear 100% safe and clean float. Every drop of water is filtered after each and every floater, so you don't have to worry about a fresh and clean experience. When you see our water sparkle inside the Dreampod, you will agree with us that it's something that you will want to step into and enjoy!
IS FLOATING A BRAND NEW CONCEPT?
No. The first float tank was developed in 1954. These involved being fully submersed in water and using a breathing device that completely covered your face. The first lay down tanks were developed in the early 70's. Floating has come a long way since 1954, and it's something now that we can enjoy and benefit from without all the fuss.
WHO IS FLOATING BENEFICIAL FOR?
People from all ages and all walks of life can benefit from floating. Everyone can benefit!
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
Just you! Towels, soap, shampoo, ear plugs, etc. are provided for you. If you have long hair you may want to bring a hair tie. Swimming suit or not, it's up to you. Most people float in their birthday suits, but do what makes you feel the most comfortable. The rooms are completely private.
CAN I FLOAT WHILE PREGNANT?
Yes! Some say it is a pregnancy must. There is a lot of pressure on muscles and joints while pregnant. Being in a weightless environment during a float will take the strain off your body. Women have also reported feeling a closeness like nothing else to their baby while in the float tank. What other form of relaxation can do so much at the same time for mom and baby than a float experience? You will love what floating can do for you.
WHAT IF I'M CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
While floating, you will feel more like you are in space than in an enclosed box. You are in control of your environment the whole time, and can float with the lid propped open if you want. But it is recommended to float in complete darkness.
CAN I FLOAT DURING THAT SPECIAL TIME OF MONTH?
Yes. Just use the same protocol as you do at a swimming pool.
CAN I DROWN IF I FALL ASLEEP?
Nope. The 10 inches of water is so buoyant you float to the top. The worst that can happen is being woken up by a little salt in your eyes.
CAN I FLOAT IF I DYE MY HAIR?
Yes. We recommend waiting to see if while in the shower at home your hair rinses clear. If not then you should wait a couple more days to schedule a float to keep our pods clean. A good rule of thumb here is to wait 72 hours to make sure your color has set in and won't come out in the tank. You won't want that on your body or in the tank!
