The floating pool is the size of a double bed and is a spacious space with very good floating Epsom salt water at the bottom. Both air and water are skin temperature. We lie down in the water and find a good position. You can turn off the lights if you want, so that in addition to silence, there is complete darkness in weightlessness.
You don’t have to do anything else. For once, you can focus on just being.
Most asked questions
There are often many questions in the mind of someone coming to their first float – here are the answers to the most common ones.
How small is the float pod? Will I feel claustrophobic?
This is the most common question we get. Don’t worry, the pod is spacious and airy. The lid is light and you can leave it open if you like. You can also leave the tank lights on or listen to music throughout the float session.
The white rooms at Float Roba (1 & 2) have Cabin-style pools. You enter the cabin through a door and you can easily stand inside the pool. The floating experiece is similar to that of the pods but because of the extra space, we recommend booking a Cabin if you are highly claustrophobic.
How early should I arrive for my session?
For the first time, it’s good to arrive about 10 minutes before the start of the appointment. Ring the doorbell and staff will unlock the gate. If you are coming to Float Kallio, the door is on the left side, right after the gate. If you are coming to Float Roba, walk to the courtyard and look for the door that has a “FLOAT”-sign.
How do I need to prepare?
It is best to avoid caffeine for a few hours before your session. Coffee and tea are available right after the float. Also, shaving right before the float should be avoided as the Epsom salt may cause burning.
Can I float with a friend or in a group?
Float Kallio has three float pools, as does Float Roba. All sessions start at the same time for each tank so you can come with your friend and float simultaneously. Just remember to book your own float room for each float. We also welcome larger groups and we can tailor packages that suit your needs.
