Is this like the film “Altered States”?
Yes-But you’re not submerged in water, you don’t eat magic mushrooms and a few percentage of floaters turn into proto-human monkeys.
Do I need to bring anything?
Nope-Just yourself. Vegan organic shampoo/conditioner/body wash, towels, earplugs, hairdryer provided.
Can I drown if I fall asleep?
No-some people fall asleep but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.
How is the tank kept clean?
The water is fully filtered between each float, including a UV light filter and a brominator.
Can I bring a friend?
You can but you can’t float together. There is a lovely park minutes away with café, best to have this time to yourself.
Is this a new agey mumbo jumbo?
Floating has been around for over 40 years and has oodles of published research to back it up, no mumbo jumbo here. Further recommended reading by Michael Hutchinson The Book of Floating-Exploring the Private Sea
