Frequently Asked Questions

What if I cannot swim?

The floatation cabin is only filled with 10-12 inches of water and has such a high density of Epsom salt that any individual, big or small, will float like a cork atop the water. It is completely unnecessary to know how to swim; a floater can sit up or stand whenever necessary.

What is Epsom salt?

Epsom salt, or magnesium sulfate, is a chemical compound containing magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen. Combined with water, it raises the water’s specific gravity, resulting in a dense solution in which a body can float effortlessly. Epsom salt has been proven to be highly absorbable by the skin resulting in countless benefits to the body including detoxification, strengthening of the immune system, heightened endorphin release, and relief from physical, mental, and emotional stress and fatigue.

What effects does floating have on the mind?

Floatation therapy is known for heightening deep mental relaxation. Floating allows the brain to produce a greater amount of theta waves, generally resulting in an increase in mental clarity, creativity and memory function. It is said to increase the release of the endorphins, which leads to elevated mood states and alleviation of anxiety, depression, and negative mental habits.

What is appropriate to wear?

At Adrift Float Spa, each personal floatation cabin is completely private. You won’t need a bathing/swim suit to enjoy your spa experience.

Is floating safe for pregnant women?

Floating is ideal for pregnant women as it alleviates pressure on the skeletal system and joints, and assists in relieving muscle tension. We do recommend that pregnant women consult their physician prior to floating, especially during the first trimester.
