Frequently Asked Questions: Floatation Tanks
1. Do I have to be a particular height or weight to float?
No. The high concentration of salt in the water makes virtually any human body buoyant enough to float without any effort. However, guests who are over 7-feet tall or heavier than 500 pounds may have difficulty getting in and out of the tank.
2. How hard is it to float?
Not at all. The salt in the water does all of the work for you. In fact, you don’t even need to know how to swim.
3. Is it safe to sleep in a floatation tank?
Yes. Since it takes no effort at all to float on your back, there’s little to no danger of drowning. So guests can fully relax without worrying about dozing off.
4. How many other people will be in the tank with me?
No one. Float sessions are a private experience.
5. What should I wear?
Most bathers float in the nude, but they can also wear swimwear if they choose. Clothing will press and stick to skin, which can be a distraction from achieving a fully relaxed state.
6. Can I eat before a float session?
You can, but you probably shouldn’t eat a heavy meal beforehand. The sounds and feeling of your digestive tract can be a distraction, but so can a growling stomach. It’s recommended to eat a few hours before your session.
7. Who shouldn’t use a floatation tank?
Anyone who is intoxicated, has an open wound, has an infectious disease, or suffers from severe psychological conditions.
