Since it is a private encounter, most individuals don’t dress up. You’ll have the entire room to yourself and must shower both before and after. Anything you wear will rub up against your skin and become a source of distraction. For more information visit us at https://floatandrestore.com.au/.
What is the tank-like?
The tank is a huge fiberglass capsule with a wide, easy-to-open sliding door that is around 1.5m tall. A 30cm deep 25 percent Epsom salt solution is kept at a constant relaxed skin temperature of 34.6°C within the tank. The solution’s density assures that anyone can and will float effortlessly. The air in the tank is likewise kept at skin temperature, so your mind doesn’t notice the difference between your body and the air or water it’s in.
If you are someone who is more sensitive to the cold than others, please let us know so that we can adjust the temperature in the room.
How do I protect my hair from a float tank?
5 Ways To Keep Your Hair Color Fresh While Floating
- At home, use color-safe shampoos and conditioners recommended by professionals.
- After each float, use a Color-Safe Clarifying Shampoo and a Protein-Building Deep-Conditioner.
- Protect yourself from the heat by using a heat protectant.
- Brushes with natural bristles should be used.
- Use water that is warm to cool in temperature.
Do I have to close the lid?
If you are claustrophobic or frightened for whatever reason, you do not need to close the lid. You may feel colder if you leave the lid open, so do let us know if you believe you’ll be leaving it open, and we’ll keep an eye on the surrounding temperature.
Many people who are concerned about feeling claustrophobic discover that once they are inside the tank and realize how much space there is and how easy it is to open and close the entrance, they are unconcerned. We propose that you sit down and close and open the door a few times when you first arrive to show how simple it is to make you feel more at ease.
Is there anyone who shouldn’t float?
For their own safety and the safety of other clients, anyone suffering from the following should not float:
- Extreme low blood pressure
- Contagious disease
- Infectious skin conditions
- including infected wounds/skin opening
- Large open wounds
- Diarrhea or Gastroenteritis (Anyone with these sorts of symptoms should not float whilst symptoms persist & for up to 21 days after).
Anyone who has one of the following conditions should see their doctor before floating:
- Heart condition
- Allergies to salts, bromine, magnesium
- Severe skin conditions (psoriasis, eczema)
- Mental illness
All clients should be informed that if they have recently had an infectious disease, they should seek medical advice before utilizing the flotation tank.
Is the water changed each time?
No, the solution is filtered completely between each customer for at least 30 minutes (enough time for the entire solution to pass through the filter three times), just like a pool or spa. The salt solution comprises a considerable number of high-quality Epsom salts, so changing it every time would be impractical. Because it is so thoroughly saturated, it takes a long time for all of the salt to permeate. Our water and salt are replenished on a daily/weekly basis as needed. Every two to three years, the complete solution is replaced (much more frequently than most float centers).
We monitor and record the bromine, pH, and alkalinity levels in the tank twice daily, making adjustments as needed to comply with the applicable pool standards and to guarantee the health and safety of all our clients. Our Council’s Environmental Health Inspector/Representative inspects us on a regular basis.
