Frequently Asked Questions

Being in the tanks is more like floating in outer space than being shut in a box. You’re always in control of your environment, and even people with extreme claustrophobia have reported having no problems with their time in the tank.
If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb. Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the tank. Other than that, we provide everything you need (towels, robes, earplugs, body wash/shampoo, blow dryer, etc.)
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.
The water is fully filtered 3 times between each float, passing through a .10 mm micron filter using ultraviolet purification system. The Epsom salts are a natural disinfectant and are at a super loaded amount. We are also required to put a minimal amount of a disinfectant (bromine) by Ottawa Public Health, however with that said, you will not smell like you just came out of a public swimming pool.
Yes. Just follow the same protocol you would for a swimming pool.

Use the Water and Vinegar Ear Drop Solution Provided in each float room:

If you don’t use the Ear Plugs, or if you accidentally get water in your ears, use this ear drop solution after the float while you’re showering. Its just half white vinegar and half water, it helps get the salt out of your ears. You can rinse your ears out with fresh water and use a good squirt or two of this stuff in each ear ought to take care of it.

There aren’t any latches on the tank doors, and you are in control of your environment and  can get out anytime. You can also start with the door open, or open it at any point, or put a towel between the door and tank. That said, up to 60-minutes usually go by quite quickly.
Floating has been around for over 40 years and has oodles of published research to back it up. No mumbo or jumbo here.
No- your skin doesn’t even prune up. You do absorb a lot of magnesium from the Epsom salt which has oodles of benefits.
Nope. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.

You cannot float if you have dyed your hair within 48 hours, no exceptions.

You go into the tanks nude, so there’s no need to bring a bathing suit.
