Our pod at Chill Massage and float holds 800 liters of water with 375kgs of epsom salt dissolved in it. When you lie down you float to the surface of the water as the buoyant nature of the water and salt combined makes you float like a cork on top of the water. Much like the dead sea.
The water temperature is the same as the average body temperature, so when you close your eyes and relax it's hard to tell if if you have a body at all. The near zero gravity effect is incredibly resting and relaxing for sore and fatigued bodies. The pod filters out sound and light.
The not seeing, feeling or hearing anything at all (sensory deprivation) takes us to a theta brain wave state. This can take some years of meditating to achieve this. We believe floating is an incredible tool that can help with many physical mental and emotional challenges.

Q.Do I need to bring any thing?
A.Not at all. You must use the shampoo and body wash provided before you float. But, after your float you are welcome to use your own toiletries. Sukin organic natural skin care products are provided for you including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, moisturizers, cleansers and toner. A luxurious towel is also provided.
Q.What if I am claustrophobic?
A.It is actually quite spacious in the pod so it's not claustrophobic for most. You are in total control and can have the lid open a little or a lot. You can also have the lights on if you like.
Q.How is the pod cleaned?
A.The entire contents of the pod are pumped through a very thorough filter. With an ultra violet process to disinfect the water between each session. A hydrogen peroxide solution gets rid of bacteria and viruses by sterilizing the water.
Q.Can I float while menstruating?
A.No, sorry the cleanliness of the pod water is a big priority for us.
Q.Can I float while pregnant?
A.Yes, but not in the first 12 weeks or last 3. The buoyant nature of the water can help you escape many pregnancy discomforts.
Q.Will I fall asleep?
A.Some people do. It's completely safe to do so. It is impossible to sink and nearly impossible to accidentally turn over.
Q.Can I wear my contacts in the pod?
A.No. Please take them out before floating.
Q.Will my skin turn wrinkly and pruny?
A.Your skin will feel incredibly smooth due to the emollient nature of the epsom salts.
