Frequently Asked Questions
Among few things which you should take notice of is a requirement not to shave your skin one day prior the procedure, because the Epsom salt solution might aggravate freshly shaven skin. If you have recently dyed hair, we ask you to wait at least 12 hours before coming for a float, since the dye might pollute the Epsom solution. We will ask you to remove all possible cosmetics (make up etc.) from your body during the showering procedure before your session, hence it is wise to restrain from using it on the day of your appointment. We strongly advise to restrain from caffeine and nicotine bearing products and other stimulants for at least 30 min. before the procedure. We also advice to restrain from heavy food at least 60 mins. prior to your floatation session.

Magnesium is playing a vital role in regulating more than 325 enzymes in the body, it also supports the function of the muscles and the nervous system Sulphates help to assimilate nutrients, flush the toxins and can help to alleviate the pains of migraine.
The high saline content of the floatation environment ensures that nothing harmful can survive within the tank. The water within the tank is automatically filtered between each customer (and 24-hours a day when not in use). The water is filtered through a 1 micron pool filter (that’s 1/100th the diameter of a human hair!) and is sanitized with a small amount of disinfectant and UV light.
