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.
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.
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.
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 do you keep the pods clean?
Between every session, the pod water is filtered through the cleaning system and disinfected by a UV-light. We also add small amounts of hydrogen peroxide after every day to ensure a clean floats. In addition, water purity values are monitored with continuous tests and analyzed by relevant authorities.
What if I dyed my hair recently?
For both your hair and the tank it is best that the colour does not run anymore when it’s wet. We recommend 2 weeks between hair dyeing and floating. Especially with brighter colours (like red) we have to be careful.
I just got a new tattoo, can I float?
The tattoo needs to be fully healed before you can float. This is best for both the tank and the tattoo.
What do I need to bring with me?
You do not have to bring anything but yourself, everything else has been taken care of. There are towels, shampoo, body wash and facial cleanser in the room with you. After floating we’ll provide you with moisturizers, conditioners, oils etc. In our beauty room you will also find a hair brush, a hair dryer, hair conditioner and beard oil.
Is there a “right” way to float?
Not at all! Getting used to the environment can take a float or two, but everyone finds the right way soon enough.
Can I float for longer than 60 minutes?
If you want to float for longer than 60 minutes, you can float on weekdays in the last hours of each night, if you prefer 60-90 minutes at no extra charge. Just remember to ask us for a longer float when you arrive. The last sessions of the day ususally start at 21.00.
What if I wear contact lenses?
We recommend floating without contact lenses, so bring along your lenses with the necessary storage.
Can pregnant women float?
Absolutely! As a rule of thumb, if you can go to the swimming pool, you can also float. However, we recommend that you always consult your doctor if at all unsure.
What’s the difference between the different float rooms?
All our floating rooms are very much alike. Each room has its own pod/pool, shower and dressing facilities. The door of the room can be locked from the inside, which ensures privacy. The black rooms feature a black pod, however apart from the colour it is almost identical to the other pods (black pools are a little bit bigger than white rooms in Float Kallio). At Float Roba in the white rooms, we have Cabin-style float pools. Cabins have a lot more room above you (see the gallery). We recommend booking one of those if you suffer from severe claustrophobia.
