Floating is very simple. Find yourself a comfortable position in the pool and relax. If you want to take a closer look to the floating, below is a more detailed description of the progress of the floating and answers to frequently asked questions.

1.Book an appointment with an appointment program or by calling.

The duration of the appointment is 90 minutes, but there is only 60 minutes of flotation?  

The floating lasts 60 minutes. 15 minutes are reserved for washing before and after,  15 minutes are reserved for us so that we can prepare the tank and clean the room for the next customer 

How many customers can float at the same time?  

We have three floating rooms and three floating tanks, so three. For groups, we can tailor a suitable package according to your wishes. 

How do you clean the pools? 

Between floats, sterile salt water is recycled through the purification system. In addition to mechanical cleaning, bacteria/viruses are destroyed with UV radiation in the purification system. Water is also chemically purified daily with the help of hydrogen peroxide. The cleanliness of the water is tested and the results are also sent to the authorities. 

What if I have a new tattoo or I've just dyed my hair?  

The tattoo should be completely healed before you come floating. Dyed hair can remove color from the pool. We recommend 2 weeks between hair dyeing and flotation. 

Can contact lenses be used for floating? 

We recommend floating without contact lenses, so take the lens case and liquid with you. 

Can I come float if I'm pregnant? 

Yes, you can. However, we always advise you to consult your doctor. 

Does salt water hurt atopic skin? 

Epsom salt is usually good for the skin. Since salt is abundant in our pools, it can sting if the skin is broken. If atopic dermatitis is at its worst, you shouldn't float. 

I'm on my period, can I come float? 

If you could go to the swimming pool, you can also come floating.

We have approximately 130 square meters of space and a maximum of 6 customers and 1-2 staff members at the same time. Safety distances are easy to follow. After floating in relaxation lounge, there are a maximum of three customers at the same time. We actively follow and comply with official guidelines/regulations related to the Covid-19 outbreak. 

Both THL and many similar authorities around the world agree that the virus does not spread in bathing water. In addition, unlike ordinary bathing water, water is cleaned after each customer. We use multiple filtration, UV light and hydrogen peroxide for cleaning. In addition, the salinity of our water is almost 35%. The very salty water in the flotation pools is a very unfavorable living space for microbes and viruses.  

You can only come to float when you're healthy. We do not ask for customers' health information and everyone is welcome in our facilities.
