Can Anyone Float?
Yes, everyone can float…. the density of the Epsom Salt allows for it to occur naturally without any effort. Floating can be done by nearly anyone from stressed-out managers, overworked moms, athletes, and those individuals just wanting to escape from everyday life and experience a state of complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. We do however highly recommend that if you suffer from any medical conditions (clinically-diagnosed depression, etc) that you consult with your primary care physician prior to floating.
What if I am claustrophobic?
Many people are concerned that they might feel closed in or trapped.

Although most choose to float in complete darkness, inside chakra lighting is a touch away. Lastly, although the doors to the private float rooms are locked, the door to the float pod can easily be opened at any time by the floater.
