What if I am claustrophobic?
This is the most common question from first-time floaters, but there is nothing to fear. You are always in control of your environment (you can play music, keep the lights on and have the lid open if you want) and many people with this worry report having no problems with their time in the pod. We ensure you are completely comfortable before your first float with us.
Can I float when pregnant?
Absolutely – pregnant women love to float! It is safe to do so between 12 & 37 weeks. Floatation therapy can relieve a lot of the aches and pains caused by pregnancy and research suggests that floating is also good for baby, We do, however, recommend you consult with your midwife or GP if you have any concerns.
A float session makes a great baby shower gift!
Can I float if I am breastfeeding?
No one deserves to relax more than mums in their 4th trimester and beyond. You can definitely enjoy a float if you are breastfeeding; we recommend breastfeeding or expressing as close to your appointment time as you can.
We suggest floating after any tears, incisions or other open wounds are completely healed as you may find the salt water quite uncomfortable.
Is there any reason I can’t float?
To ensure health and safety standards, you cannot float if you:
• Have recently dyed your hair (we recommend waiting 2 weeks,
• Have recently applied tanning products allow 7 – 10 days
• Are currently menstruating -We recommend waiting until after your period as you will feel more at ease if you do not have to worry about leaks.
• Have epilepsy
• Have a serious heart condition
• Have open wounds
• Have diarrhoea
• Have recently been tattooed
• Are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Is there anyone that shouldn’t float?
Anyone with one or more of the following conditions should not use float tanks:
– Uncontrolled epilepsy or history of seizures, drug or alcohol intoxication, skin or infectious disease, open wounds and serious psychological conditions, medical conditions that are untreated or not under control, such as high or low blood pressure
– Prone to ear infections, skin allergies or reactions to Epsom salt or hydrogen peroxide cleaning products
You will be asked to sign a detailed waiver form before your first float. When in doubt, please consult with your doctor first.
What do I need to bring with me?
Just yourself and an open mind, we provide the rest; Towels, silicon earplugs, organic body wash, shampoo & conditioner, moisturiser, cotton buds, hairdryer and exceptional service.
What do I wear?
It is widely recommended you float naked to avoid distraction from the feeling of a swimsuit. The float suite is completely private, including a private shower ~ If floating naked is not your cup of tea you can wear a swimsuit if you prefer.
How do I know the water is clean?
The water is tested every day for hygiene, specific gravity, pH balancing, sterilisation and temperature. The Dreampod's filters screen the water down to as little as 1 micron (100th the size of a hair). The entire contents of the tank are flushed through and filtered 4 complete volumes of water between every guest. Fresh filtered water and premium epsom salt is added daily and the epsom salt Concentration alone (550kgs) does not allow for any bacteria to be present. All surfaces are disinfected after each guest also.
