Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)


WHAT IF I CAN’T FLOAT?

With over one thousand pounds of Epsom salt dissolved into just ten inches of water, you’ll float…everyone floats.

WILL I FEEL CLAUSTROPHOBIC WHILE FLOATING?

The float tanks are BIG, like the size of a car, and you may feel free to leave the door open. Many experience feelings compared to floating in space, which is quite the opposite of feeling claustrophobic.

HOW ARE THE FLOAT TANKS CLEANED?

The Epsom salt solution cycles through a one micron carbon filter, it is infused with ozone and treated with UV light as well as Hydrogen Peroxide. This three step filtration process repeats three times between each float. It’s squeaky clean for every float!

CAN PREGNANT WOMEN FLOAT?

Yes and it can help relieve pregnancy discomfort while you enjoy a deep connection with your baby. Please direct medical questions to your doctor.

CAN I FLOAT WITH SOMEONE ELSE?

We have one float tank that is large enough for two! Typically, we recommend becoming familiar with floating on your own before floating together.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR CRYOTHERAPY?

The most important safety precaution is for you and your clothing to be dry upon entering the chamber. Because of the very low temperatures, everyone must wear cotton or wool foot and hand protection plus either cotton underwear or a bathing suit to protect intimate body parts. All other clothing is removed. Jewelry and any other metal must be removed prior to entering the chamber. We will provide a robe, hand & foot protection for you.

HOW LONG IS A CRYOTHERAPY SESSION?

All clients receive a short orientation and fill out our waiver form beforehand. The actual chamber time is 2-3 minutes.

HOW SOON CAN I EXPECT RESULTS FROM A CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT?

After completing your first treatment your body will release endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that will last for several hours or even days.

IS IT SAFE TO GET THAT COLD WITH CRYOTHERAPY?

Yes, during the 3 minute session your skin’s temperature will drop but your core temperature will remain at 98.6°, its natural state.

DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING SPECIFIC AFTER MY CRYOTHERAPY SESSION?

No, but hydrating is always a good idea.

IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD AVOID AFTER MY CRYOTHERAPY SESSION?

No, there is nothing that you need to avoid after your session.
