Salt Float FAQs
Are the float pods weight restricted?
No, you will be able to float in the pod, expending no physical energy to maintain your position in the water, no matter your weight.
How many times a week can I float?
While it is perfectly safe to float daily, we find that the effects of float therapy can be enjoyed beyond the day of your session. Research has shown that 1-2 times a week provides the most benefits.
How do I prepare for my float?
We recommend avoiding alcohol, caffeine or any stimulants 4-6 hours before your float to ensure nothing interferes with the relaxation process. We recommend having something small to eat 60-90 minutes beforehand so you do not become hungry during your session.
Can I float while menstruating?
Nadi requests that you please reschedule your appointment to a different stage of your cycle.
Should I shower after floating?
Yes! If you do not shower after your float, you will develop a residual layer of salt on your skin from the salt water, which can be uncomfortable.
Will the salt float dehydrate my skin?
No! In fact, your skin will feel silky smooth afterwards, thanks to the epsom salts.
What do I wear in a float?
We recommend wearing nothing at all to assist with the sensory deprivation of the tank. However, you will still experience all the benefits of float therapy if you choose to float in a bathing suit.
Can I float if I am pregnant?
If you have the go ahead from your GP/physician, then float therapy is a wonderful option for expecting mums.
How do you keep the floats clean?
We have staff members that clean the water between every float. Additionally, the water goes through a 15 minute filtering cycle between very float that prepares the float tank for the next floater.
Can I drown from float therapy?
Although drowning is always a possibility in any activity that involves water, it is highly unlikely as your body will remain afloat due to the buoyancy of the water.
Can I do a Salt Float if I can’t swim?
As the water in the float tanks is only 11 inches deep, and the body naturally floats due to the buoyancy of the water, no swimming experience is required in order to float at Nadi.
