IMG_5689.jpg

Are there any restrictions on who can float?

You should not float if you are presently ill, have incontinence, kidney problems, epilepsy or have an active skin condition. People with severe medical conditions or are pregnant, should consult their physician before floating. Due to the weightless effect in the tank, pregnant women in the later stages of pregnancy have found flotation tank therapy to be one of the best available pain relief therapies available.

 

How are the tanks kept clean and disinfected?

There is 1,200 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt dissolved in each of our tanks. Salinity is at 1.37 grams per cubic centimeter. The solution is so high in saline that no living microorganism can survive in there. After each session, the entire volume of the solution is pumped out and filtered through a three part filtration and sterilization system utilizing Ultra Violet light and H2O2 (ozone gas treatment). In addition all clients are required to be 100% clean prior to entering the tank. 

Aquarius and Poseidon are regulated daily by our float facilitation staff. In-between appointments each tank is cleaned and the water is treated. Keeping our tanks and water quality in pristine condition is a top priority at Source On High. Click to see our monthly report from Bluegrass KESCO Inc., where our water is tested each month. 

Would I drown in the flotation tank if I fell asleep?

The depth of the solution is about 10.5 inches and the density is such that it will always support you, regardless of your size or weight. If you were to turn over the salt in the water would sting your eyes and wake you. Since you are floating you do not need to know how to swim. Additionally, it’s not dangerous to fall asleep in the tank, it’s actually encouraged.

Do I wear a swim suit?

We recommend that you float in the nude to experience optimal deprivation but you are welcome to wear a swim suit if preferred. 

Do I need to bring anything?

No! We have a private shower with body wash, shampoo, and condition. Towels are provided along with Q-tips, Vaseline, hair brush, comb, ear plugs, and tissues.
