FAQs

What is floating? In the float “orb” you are in a near-zero gravity state which gives your body a chance to relax. You’re also reducing external sensory input to the brain—reduced light and reduced sound which gives your brain the much needed break from processing. When your body reaches a certain amount of relaxation, it can cause positive physical results like reduced muscle tension, decreased blood pressure, fewer stress hormones and increased endorphins. Floating allows everything to catch up. The generous amount of Epsom salt is added to the water in order for a guest to float with ease. The skin is able to absorb the salts that have been added, which becomes a very helpful supplement of a mineral that is not commonly ingested.

Who can float? ALMOST everyone! We do not recommend floating for individuals with epilepsy, heart Conditions and Ear Infections, unless you’ve been cleared to do so by your Doctor. You will be required to complete a form prior to your session to determine if floating is safe for you. If you just dyed your hair  there is no guarantee that the salt won’t strip some color out. We recommend that you check if the water running through your hair in the shower at home is fully clear. If there is still some color coming out you should wait a couple of more days/showers. If menstruating we advise that you take the same precautions that you would take when going to a swimming pool.

How long do I stay in? Technically, as long as you would like. We recommend a 60 minute float to fully immerse yourself in the experience.

Is there a “right way” to float? Nope. Each person will find whatever position is comfortable for them. Explore away!

Is there any prep/things to avoid before floating? You will be required to shower before and after your float. Avoid stimulants and heavy meals. NO drugs or alcohol!

What is epsom salt and why is it used? Epsom Salt, named after a saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulphate. The wonders of Epsom salt have been well known for hundreds of years and unlike other salts, Epsom salt has beneficial properties that can soothe the body, mind and soul. Some of the countless health benefits include relaxing the nervous system, soothing skin problems & back pain, easing muscle strain, healing cuts, treating colds and congestion and drawing toxins from the body.

What if I am claustrophobic? This is a very common topic for first time customers, but it’s not a problem. The inside is warm, illuminated and well ventilated.  The “orb” lid doesn’t lock, you can open and close it whenever you’d like, you can leave it slightly open even. You’re in control!

How are the float “orbs” sanitized? The water is fully filtered 3-5 times between each float, passing through an intense filtration system for particulate matter and then a UV filter which targets the DNA and RNA of bacteria, viruses, algae and other biological matter. The Epsom salt solution is naturally sanitary; the combination of the high concentrations of Epsom salt and a disinfectant make it cleaner then a pool and nearly impossible for microorganisms to survive.

What if I fall asleep while floating? Lucky YOU! This happens to Angie EVERYTIME! The high buoyancy of the salt water makes it impossible for an individual to sink beneath the surface. It’s extremely unlikely that you’ll roll in your sleep in which case the worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes or mouth.

What do I bring? We provide everything you need. We provide towels, ear plug and everything you need for pre & post shower. You may want to bring a brush/comb and your own products such as deodorant and lotions.  *If you use contact lenses, please remember to bring something to store them in while you float.

What do I wear in the Float “orb”? Nothing, nada, birthday suit, au natural. It’s a private room all to yourself!

How old do you have to be to float? At Quiet Corner Float 18+

What if I am pregnant? Always consult with your doctor first! The float tank is a wonderful place for pregnant women. It can relieve all of the weight of the baby off of the mother’s body which can be a great help to those suffering from lower back pain. It is strongly recommended that pregnant women avoid floating during the first trimester. If you have any concerns about the effects of floating on your pregnancy, we ask you to consult and get permission from your
physician before you float.
