FAQS

LEARN HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR FLOAT EXPERIENCE

Are the sounds royalty free?


Yes, everything is always 100% royalty free. That means you can use any content from our products in commercial releases. If you make a hit song with one of our loops, presets, or samples, you don't have to pay us a dime. In fact, we hope that happens. And when you do make a hit song with one of our packs, we would love it if you let us know and share the track with us :)




Which DAW do I need?


In order to use the Samples & Loops you will need any DAW that is able to load .wav files.
In order to use the Project Files you will need FL Studio version 20 (or higher), Logic Pro X version 10.4 (or higher) or Ableton Live version 10 (or higher).





Do I need to bring anything?


  • A towel
  • Contact lenses - please bring something to store them in while you’re floating

Other than that, we provide everything you need:

  • earplugs

  • shampoo

  • body wash

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...




Are Float Rooms hygenic?


The water in our Float Room is saturated with magnesium sulfate nearly to the point of crystallization, just like the Dead Sea. And, just like the Dead Sea, this is not an environment in which bacteria can live. In addition, our Float Room come with a five-filter-system that automatically drains and filters the water after each session and it also does this FIVE times. Finally, floaters are asked to shower before they enter the Float Room, further minimising the amount of bacteria they introduce to the Float Room.
