FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES FLOAT THERAPY WORK?
A typical InBody float session lasts sixty-minutes. As a person floats, the brain waves slow down into Theta frequencies, which are normally only experienced during a deep meditation or just before falling asleep. This is usually accompanied by vivid imagery, very clear, creative thoughts, sudden insights, inspirations or feelings of profound peace and joy as well as overall healing and wellbeing. You simply put in ear plugs (located in each room), slowly enter the tank, lie on your back, and relax. You will feel entirely weightless and free.
WHAT IS A FLOATATION TANK?
Float Therapy or Floating is the act of utilizing a flotation tank, also known as a sensory deprivation chamber. A flotation tank is light-proof (completely dark) and sound-proof. A flotation tank contains 10 inches of sterile, body-temperature water (filtered after every usage). In the water, there are hundreds of pounds of medical-grade Epsom salts, this ensures that anyone can float with ease. The tank is not airtight. You'll have plenty of oxygen. To keep the tank air fresher, an air circulation system brings additional air from the room.
ANY REASON WHY I SHOULDN’T FLOAT?
Float tanks are not recommended for some people. Anyone with one or more of the following conditions should not use float tanks: uncontrolled epilepsy, drug or alcohol intoxication, infectious disease, open wounds, and serious psychological conditions.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Float tank sessions are private affairs, so most people wear nothing at all. You may find that even the fabric of a swimsuit rubbing or pressing against your body is a distraction. Swim related garments are allowed if preferred. Ear plugs should be worn during your float and are provided by InBody.
SHOULD I SHOWER BEFORE OR AFTER?
Yes…both. Shower before you enter the float tank, be sure to remove contact lenses and jewelry. Thoroughly wash off all moisturizers, make-up, deodorant, and perfume or cologne. After your float session ends please wash off the salt completely. InBody provides towels and basic natural body products for your use.
HOW SOON AFTER SHOULD I EXPECT TO GET RESULTS?
Results may vary by individual and inBody cannot guarantee that any of our clients will see specific results. Clients will experience a deep state of relaxation and meditation shortly after entering the tank.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?
Although a single float therapy session will provoke an overall state of peace and wellbeing. Multiple sessions are recommended, an InBody representative will help facilitate a plan dependent on your condition and desired outcome. InBody offers a wide range of membership packages to meet all requirements.
