How do I book a float?
All of our float sessions are appointment based. Purchase your float online (or in person if you prefer) and then visit our online scheduler to pick a tank and a float time. You can also book over the phone if you like ---> 248-951-2634
What do I need?
Nothing, we provide everything you need for your float. Just show up ready to relax.
Some people ask if they need to bring a bathing suit. You do NOT need to bring a bathing suit as the best float experience is done in your birthday suit.
How long are float sessions?
The float itself is 60 minutes long, but you'll need time to shower before and after. So expect to be here for at least 90 minutes. We also have a post-float lounge with complimentary tea and snacks. No need to rush back into the world of chaos, stay awhile and bask in the post-float glow.
How should I prepare for my first float?
Avoid caffeine for 3-4 hours before your float.
Avoid shaving or waxing for at least 24 hours before floating.
Try to eat a light meal 60-90 minutes before your float.
Make sure to use the washroom before your session so you are not distracted.
If you wear contacts, bring a case, or take them out before you come.
You may bring your own shower shoes IF they have never been outside.
When should you NOT float?
IF you are an epileptic and your epilepsy is not under medical control.
IF you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
IF you have a recent tattoo (within 4-6 weeks), or large open skin wounds.
IF you've recently dyed your hair (within a week). It’s important to make sure you wait 5 days from your treatment and to wash hair with shampoo at least 3 times before floating.
Anyone getting keratin treatments to their hair should avoid saltwater, and that includes float tanks.
IF you cannot wash your hair, you may bring a waterproof (e.g. silicone) swim cap. Please be aware that no swim cap is perfect, and leaking is common around the ears and jaw. Even small amounts of float tank water contain amazing amounts of salt.
What if I’m claustrophobic?
People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems floating. You control your environment and float cabins are extremely large with plenty of room.
Can I float if I’m menstruating?
Yes. Just follow the same protocol you would for a swimming pool.
Can I float if I'm pregnant
Absolutely! There will be a womb within a womb! Floating can relieve a lot of the aches and pains caused by pregnancy.
If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.
Can I drown if I fall asleep?
Nope. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat.
Is this new-agey mumbo jumbo?
Floating has been around for over 50 years, and has published research to back it up.
