Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
Do I need to bring anything?
Just a towel! We will provide everything you need. If you have any nicks or cuts we recommend bringing some vaseline to cover as they will sting for a bit. (salt water)
Can I bring a friend?
Of course! We only have one tank so you will need book sessions one after the other, but we have a pleaseant waiting area and refreshments that you can make use of. We have a massage therapist who works from the spa so if you would like a massage while you wait you can. This will require prior booking.
What if I’m claustrophobic?
A large number of people with claustrophobia report no problems with floating. The tank itself is actually quite large and you can leave the tank door open and the lights on if you like. You are free to get out at any time you wish and you are in total control of your environment.
Can I drown if I fall asleep?
Nope. Some people fall asleep but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat, allowing worry-free naps in the tank. The worst thing that can happen is getting woken up by some salt water in your eyes.
How are the tanks kept clean?
The water is highly sterile and is filtered 3 times between each float and is sanitized with UV and Hydrogen Peroxide.
Can I float if I’m pregnant?
100%. Floating can relive a lot of aches and pains caused by pregnancy and comes highly recommended. We do request you seek approval from your Doctor before floating and to not float within a few weeks of your due date.
Do you sell Gift Vouchers?
Yes we do.
Is this a load of old mumbo jumbo?
Floating has been around for over 40 years and has oodles of published research to back it up. Check out our testamonais section to read about some of our previous clients experience at Driftwood. No mumbo or jumbo here!
