Will I have privacy?
Yes, you float within your own private room (so there is no requirement to wear a bathing suit or swim trunks). The room has its own shower and is for your exclusive use for the duration of your session.
Will my skin wrinkle?
No. Because the water contains high salt levels it doesn’t rob your skin of salt, (which is what causes wrinkling). Rather, it leaves you skin soft and silky.
Will I be locked in?
No, the lights in the room are automatic and the float pod opens up from the inside. Any motion will immediately trigger the lights for you.
Is the water hygienic?
FloatNL adheres to the most stringent health and safety regulations. The water contains mostly salt so the solution is sterile. We add a limited amount of chemicals of the same kind you would find in a swimming pool to ensure the room is safe and clean. To add to that, we filter the water 3.75 times between each float session.
What do I bring with me?
Just an open mind and a tired body! We provide everything else…towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and a hairdryer. However, you may want to bring a brush or comb for after you get out.
Who shouldn’t float?
You should not float if you:
Have not been shown how to use the float room by a qualified person; have open or bleeding wounds; suffer from incontinence or uncontrolled epilepsy; have been medically advised not to float; have a special or lacquered hairdo which you wish to keep; are not confidant of being able to get out due to lack of personal mobility (if unsure, please request help getting in and out of the float pod ).
Can I float when menstruating?
Yes, just follow the same protocol as you would going swimming or in a hot tub.
Can I drown in the float pod if I fall asleep?
No, the Epsom salts would keep you afloat and if you were to turn over then the salt water would wake you up right away.
