Can you float if you’re pregnant?2019-01-23T04:16:53+11:00

Yes, pregnant women can benefit from floatation therapy. During the later stages of pregnancy, even sleeping can cause muscle strain. The floatation tank can relieve this pressure by creating an environment where women can finally escape the discomforts of pregnancy. We believe floating is safe for all stages of pregnancy, but every woman should speak with her personal care provider about floating before coming in for a session. Yes, we allow pregnant women to float between 12 and 30 weeks.

Can you fall asleep in the pod?2019-01-23T04:16:00+11:00

Sometimes people fall asleep in the pod. If this happens you will continue to float normally and music will awake you in the last 5 minutes.

How is the water maintained?2019-01-23T04:15:08+11:00

The Dreampod comes well equipped with several features to maintain hygiene of the water. The main filter is a 10 micron filter bag, capable of filtering debris in the water as small as 1/4 the size of the diameter of a human hair. Water is also pumped by a UV light array, taking care of any micro-organisms that survives the extreme salt content (600kg) of the water. After each session, the whole body of water cycles through a filtration system containing UV lamps and a micron filter 4-6 times. There is also a chlorine injection system. The water is also treated with a small amount of chlorine in line with health regulations. We regularly test and balance the water throughout the day.

What if I?m claustrophobic?2019-01-23T04:10:30+11:00

While numerous people who suffer from claustrophobia have consistently reported no problems, rest assured that you have complete control over your environment. If you choose, you can keep the pod cover open and the interior lights on. Most people agree that being inside feels more like floating in space than feeling trapped in an enclosed area.
