The ambience of this pod room reflects the reviving aspects of Tao. Inside is the I-sopod, a sleek and stylish inner spaceship designed to transport the user to a new world of absolute calm and tranquillity. The pod is a impenetrable silent sanctuary that is almost womb like, where anxieties and stress simply drift away.
Preparing For a Float (bottom)
Our float pods are the largest on the market by 50%. This amount of space gives you the sensation of complete comfort. You are in full control of your float experience. You can get in and out as you please, and you can also leave the door open if you wish. It is very difficult to feel claustrophobic with such freedom. The pods are equipped with vivid lighting and offer the opportunity to listen to calming music. It is all about your comfort level.
It’s important to know that the float pods are already a sterile environment due to the high concentration of Epsom salt. Just as no microorganisms can live in the Dead Sea the same goes for the level of salinity in that of an isolation tank. However, our state of the art units use a surface skimmer, cartridge filter, ozone filtration system, and a disinfection process to keep the units microbe and sediment free. We monitor and record water conditions daily.
If you’re menstruating, it’s perfectly fine to float (please use a tampon) but we ask that you not float during your heaviest time of flow.
Floating can be a great way to relieve the pains of pregnancy and get in touch with your baby (some moms report that they can hear their baby’s heartbeat). We advise that you ask your doctor first if you have any pregnancy issues, and that you float after your first trimester has ended.
Absolutely. The practice of flotation therapy has been around for decades with a countless number of studies and research conducted. In fact, many professional athletes and teams utilize floating as a tool to stay on top of their game both mentally and physically.
The possibilities are endless. Each float experience varies on an individual basis, and no two floats are the same. We believe it is important for the floater to go in with an open mind, and be prepared for a unique experience. One thing to note is that floating is a tool for the mind and body. The more you float the more profound your experiences get. Typically you begin to feel the full float sensation and gain the extraordinary benefits after 4 or 5 sessions.
No. We provide all the amenities needed for your floatation experience.
Yes. In fact many people safely fall asleep in the pod as a result of being so relaxed. Even those who say they never sleep on their backs in bed, do so very easily in the pod. People may think it is unsafe due to the fear of rolling over. But because of the solutions density, it is very difficult to turn over. If this were ever to happen the salinity of the water would irritate the eyes and nose- immediately waking the floater.
Either way! Most people tend to float nude since that is the most natural state and because a bathing suit can become a sensory distraction during the float.
