What if I’m claustrophobic?

Is there anything I should do to prepare for my float?

What if I fall asleep?

Will my skin turn pruney, like in the bathtub or swimming pool?
The solution of water and epsom salt (Magnesium Sulfate) in our float rooms, in fact, makes your skin smooth and soft. There is some absorption of the epsom salt, so if you feel parched, please ask an attendant for a complementary bottle of water or make sure to hydrate yourself after your float. 
Can I still float if I dye my hair?
We ask that you wait two weeks between coloring your hair and floating with us. This is asked as the salt content of the water may leach color from your hair if you float any earlier than two weeks after your coloring.
Can I wear a swim suit?
You can wear a swim suit if you like, however, Floating is all about minimizing as much sensation on your body as possible, so most people find the addition of a swimsuit uncomfortable over time during their float.
