CAN PREGNANT WOMEN FLOAT?
Absolutely, the benefits are most notable in the second and third trimester. The water is 35.5 degrees, no fear of overheating. The Magnesium in the Epsom Salts is absorbed by the skin providing countless benefits. The gravity free environment alleviates the pressure the baby creates on the mother's body. Always check your specific pregnancy circumstances with you health practitioner before you float.
I'M CLAUSTROPHOBIC CAN I FLOAT?
Most individuals who are claustrophobic have no problems with floating. The pods are quite spacious, lids can be kept open. After a couple of sessions most floaters with this condition find they are comfortable and float with the lid closed. If there is a problem you can get out at anytime, or push the emergency button for assistance.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I FALL ASLEEP?
You will sleep, continue to float and upon waking feeling amazing!
DO I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SWIM?

We test and balance the water after every float.
