FAQs

Will Floating Help Heal My Sports Injury

Yes, floating can help heal injuries as the pod experience puts you in such a deep state of relaxation and rest that repair to damaged muscles, bones and ligaments begins quickly, floating increases blood flow and circulation within the muscles, the magnesium in the salts actually builds proteins in the bones when it absorbs into the body. Post exercise recovery is enhanced beyond all recognition due to the fact your weightless in a light proof sound proof environment. There is no sensory input for the brain to calculate not even for balance or gravity. The brain has been completely freed up to focus solely on healing what needs to be healed.

Can I Float If Pregnant

Yes, pregnant women love to float, there's even a special position to lay in which takes all the weight of the baby off the mothers’ body, however, please always consult your GP before floating.

How Do I Prepare for a Float?

Don’t drink coffee before your float as it makes you jittery, don't shave or wax just before as the salt irritates the skin, and have a light meal around 90 minutes before floating to stop your belly from rumbling.

Is the Pod Clean?

Very. The pod is inherently sterile due to the high concentration of the salt. After each session, a powerful filtration system is automatically activated, keeping the pod clean at all times. The water passes 4 times through our 1-micron filter (100 times smaller than a human hair) and then through a powerful 55w UV sterilization chamber. Disinfectant is automatically administered to ensure complete hygiene.

What If I'm Claustrophobic?

This is a common concern. You are in complete control of the pod light, music, and door, so you can float with a light on and the door open. Most people’s fears subside once they find that they are completely in control, and end up closing the door and turning the light off. In fact, the I-SOPOD is actually considered a great way to treat claustrophobia.

Will My Skin Wrinkle?

No matter how long you float for, your skin is left nice and soft due to the Epsom salts.
