frequently asked questions and answers

Find the answers to commonly asked questions below. If you have any other questions about your float experience at Rest Nest, please do not hesitate to contact us. or ask during your next visit.

What if I’m claustrophobic?

Being in the tanks is more like floating in outer space than being shut in a box. You’re always in control of your environment, and even people with extreme claustrophobia have reported having no problems with their time in the tank.

Can I float if I’m pregnant?

Absolutely! There will be a womb within a womb! Floating can relieve a lot of the aches and pains caused by pregnancy. If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.

How can I prepare?

Don’t drink coffee for several hours beforehand (it can make your system jittery). Also, don’t shave or wax since the salt water can irritate your skin. Eating a light meal about an hour to 90 minutes ahead of time stops your stomach from sounding like an angry monster while you float. Other than that, there’s no specific preparation needed.

Do I need to bring anything?

If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb. Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the tank. Other than that, we provide everything you need (towels, robes, earplugs, body wash/shampoo, blow dryer, etc.)

What type of pods do you have?

We service 3 brand new Dreampod float tanks.

Can more than one person float in a tank at a time?

Only one person per pod. The solitude of floating is a big enhancement to the benefits of floatation therapy. However, we do have three pods, so three people can float at the same time.

Am I stuck in the pod for the full session?

There aren’t any latches on the pod door, and you can lift the door very easily to get out at anytime. That said, the 60-minutes usually go by quite quickly.

Is sensory deprivation just new age mumbo jumbo?

Floating has been around for over 40 years and has oodles of published research to back it up. No mumbo or jumbo here!

How are the pods kept clean?

The water is fully filtered 3 times between each float, passing through a hot tub caliber filter and a UV light. The Epsom salts are a natural disinfectant and are at a super loaded amount. We are also required to put a minimal amount of a disinfectant (hydrogen peroxide) into the pods, however with that said, you will not smell like you just came out of a public swimming pool.

Won't my skin prune and become dehydrated?

No- your skin doesn’t even prune up. You do absorb a lot of magnesium from the Epsom salt which has oodles of benefits.
