Frequently Asked Questions
Body hygiene: you should not shave or depilate your skin 1 day prior to the procedure, because the Epsom salt solution might aggravate the freshly shaven skin. Before the session it is required to remove all the cosmetics (make up, body oils, etc.) you might be having on your body, hence we strongly advise to refrain from using it before the session altogether. We also kindly ask you not to use any strong body smells, especially synthetic deodorants prior to the session. If you have recently dyed hair, we recommend to wait at least 12 hours before coming for a float, since the dye might react with the Epsom solution in an undesirable manner.
Diet: we strongly advice 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 min prior to your floatation session.
Open the door and walk into floatation chamber. You may close the door right afterward or later on during the session. The internal lights are turned on during beginning of your session and at the end of it. Allow yourself the time to get to know the new physical environment. Once laying on the water, allow the body to find the most comfortable floatation position naturally. When making movements try to do it slowly and consciously. If you have chosen to float without the earplugs, please wash the inner ear properly after the session by making sure there is no salt remaining inside.
We provide everything you need for the shower (towels, shower gel, hairdryer). If you prefer, you might bring body hygiene accessories which you would want to use after your session.
It is a global practice to not be wearing any swimming clothes during floatation. You can still wear it if you prefer, but in this case the swimming suit must be washed properly after its last use.
Epsom salt is magnesium sulphate, a pure, time-tested mineral compound with dozens of uses. Both magnesium and sulphate are absorbed externally through the skin and provide a range of benefits for the whole organism. 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 solution ensures that most harmful organisms can not survive. The solution is automatically filtered and sanitized between each customer (and also regularly when chambers are 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 hydrogen peroxide and UV light.
Usually, in our chambers the floatation solution is maintained to a level, which allows people to float weighting under 100 kg. Get in touch with use if your weight is higher and we will offer you a session suited to your needs.
