Contact lenses - please bring something to store them in while you’re floating
Other than that, we provide everything you need:
For first time floaters, please see our float prep information
Your float experience with us will be made as effortless as possible so you can relax and enjoy
What do I wear?
It’s birthday suit time! Something we recommend to truly get the full experience of sensory deprivation (i.e. no garment’s becoming heavy with Epsom salts and becoming a distraction)
However, we completely understand this can be daunting (especially the first time), so you can wear swimwear if you like, your room and shower is completely enclosed and private, and that decision will be left completely up to you.
Is there anything I should do to prepare?

What if I am claustrophobic?
Our Float Room is a room and not a pod. The ceiling is 2m high and remember you have complete control of your environment. We have installed beautiful star-light lighting and you can opt to leave the lights dimmed if this is your first float. Being in the Float Room 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 room.
We also have some great onsite therapists that work with alleviating anxieties and fears, so it might be worth trying to see them re confined spaces, and then come and get your float on.
Will I get cold?
Everyones' body is very different and will react differently to temperature. Our Float Room water and air temperature will roughly be set at the average skin temperature which is around 35.5 degrees, this is the most researched and recognised as the perfect temperature. Too warm (like a hot bath) encourages your body to sweat in order to cool you down, and too cool - your body shivers to warm you up, both causes stress to the body which isn’t relaxing.
We have installed advanced underfloor heating in the room, so when you come out of the Float Room, you will still be in a cosy, warm environment…
Can more than one person float at a time?
Only one person can float in our room at any one time, and it is better this way as you get your own downtime.
How many sessions do you need to feel the benefits?
You should feel the benefits after the first float, but with anything, it depends how relaxed you are to begin with. I liken it to a spin or yoga class, you need to try it at least three times to give your body and head space a chance to respond, and then decide if you like it.
Please see our float experience section to find out more about what you can expect/may experience from your floats. Although, each and everyone we do, is different from start to finish...
