Q. How should I prepare for my first float?
1. Abstain from consuming caffeine for several hours before you float (it can make you jittery).
2. Don't wax or shave on the day of your float as the salt can irritate your skin.
3. We suggest eating a light meal about 60 - 90 minutes prior to floating.
4. Don't drink too much water before you float. You don't want to have to get out of the tank to use the bathroom!
Q. Can I float with the lid open?
Absolutely! If you suffer from claustrophobia you can leave the lid open. You are in complete control! The pods don’t have locks and latches on them and they are well ventilated. You can open the door at any time.
Q. Do I have to stay in the whole time?
No. You can get out whenever you feel like it.
Q. Should I wear a bathing suit or float naked?
Floating naked is highly recommended! Fabric can interfere/stimulate your sense of touch. That said, it’s entirely up to you. Do what makes you feel comfortable.
Q. Can I float if I'm pregnant?
Of course! Floating is very beneficial for pregnant women. There is even a special position you can float in that relieves all of the weight of the baby off of the mother’s body. However, If you are in your first trimester it is advised that you do not float. If you have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.
Q. Can I float with my partner?
Our Dreampods can only accommodate 1 person at a time. However we do have 4 float rooms so you can book with a friend and float simultaneously!
Q. Will floating make me dehydrated?
No. Your skin will absorb magnesium from the epsom salt and magnesium is an electrolyte! Floating is actually hydrating!
Q. How sanitary is the water?
The pod water is super clean. We monitor our solution very closely: pH and alkalinity levels are checked daily and the water is continuously filtered through a filtration system equipped with a UV steriliser between each float.
Q. Can I drown if I fall asleep?
No. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is you sleep through your float, but you'll wake up feeling refreshed and revitalised!
Q. Can I float if I'm menstruating?
Of course. Just follow the same protocol you would for a swimming pool.
Q. Do I need to bring anything?
You may want to bring a hair brush or deodorant for after your float. Other than that, we provide everything you need (towels, robes, earplugs, body wash, shampoo/conditioner, lotion, hair dryer, hair straightener)
Q. Can I float after dying my hair or using spray tan?
Please wait at least a week to float after colouring your hair (or until you have washed your hair 3 or 4 times and the water runs clear). Hair dye can damage th!e pods and it is very costly to fix. Take the same precaution after using spray tan.
