As a wellness center focused on relaxation and rejuvenation, you should wear comfortable clothing. You might consider bringing a pair of slippers or other comfortable shoes for inside the building. We provide lockers for you to store your belongings while in the facility.
If you are doing Power Fitness or Virtual Fitness, we recommending wearing tennis shoes. We also recommend bringing a change of underwear for Power Fitness.
If you are doing our Facial Renew service, please wear a shirt that allows your neck to be exposed and be prepared to remove your makeup for the service.
When you do our Iso Float service, you do not need to bring anything. You do not need a bathing suit. We provide earplugs, towels, shampoo/conditioner and body wash. We have a hair dryer in our vestibule. If you’d like to bring your own shower shoes, you’re welcome to. You can use your own products after floating, but please use ours before entering the tank. Arrive 10 minutes early your first time so one of our staff can walk you through the process.
If you are claustrophobic, you can float with the pod open and with the lights on if you prefer. Most people find it very comfortable, but feel free to stop by and check it out if you have any concern.
