How many Float tanks do you have?
At present we have one floatation tank.
It is located in its own room, with its own shower, conveniently away from other clients.
I’d love to come with a friend.
We can easily book you in one after the other. Or if you wish to have a session concurrently the best way to do it, is book in for a float and massage package and that way we can tee up your experience together.
One of you will float whilst the other has a massage and then we can swap you over.
I want to float with my friend.
Unfortunately that is not recommended.
Our tank is also not be big enough for two in it at once.
Floating really is a personal experience best had on its own, to ensure maximal benefits for you.
Can I float whilst I’m pregnant?
It is the only experience that will allow you an anti gravity effect to really take the pressure of the baby off your joints.
The most challenging part for you will be waking up at the end.
Is your float tank a real isolation tank?
Yes it is.
The Apollo system offers complete sensory isolation, however it is an optional feature.
If you would like to experience the benefits of floating without the isolation you can do that.
We offer ambient light and soft music whilst you float.
If it’s a real isolation tank, how can I breathe inside?
The Apollo tank has in built ventilation that does allow the air to circulate.
This is is designed in such a way that it won’t allow any light in.
I’m a little claustrophobic.
Many of our clients are, so the beauty of the Apollo float tank is that you control from the inside just how enclosed you want to be.
To whichever level you take the door you can rest assured that you will still have a good floatation experience.
There is also a light on inside that we can have on for you or you can choose to let the rooms ambient light shine through with the float door a little ajar.
If you would like to know more, just give us a call and we can chat to you further about how best we can make you comfortable.
How much salt is in your tank?
The water depth is about 30cm, which makes the solution more buoyant than in the dead sea.
It’s really very cool!
Are you sure I‘m going to float, I can’t swim!
Yes you will definitely float.
And we promise that it will be entirely effortless, the tank does it all for you!
It requires no skill or ability from you at all.
Is floating hygenic?
The salinity of the tank really stops anything from growing.
But just to be sure we maintain and check daily the PH, Alkalinity and bromine levels.
The water is also filtered between every client, and filters every night.
The tank is filtered with a pump system much like a swimming pool.
As the pump is very large the water filters in about 10-13 mins.
Between every appointment the filter will run and it runs over night every night as well.
How often do you change the water?
We add water and salt to the tank on a weekly basis.
This means that we are always topping up.
The entire water in the tank is only changed about once per year.
It’s really a very big job to drain the tank and then dissolve 350kgs – it takes a couple of days!
The hygiene of the tank is not dependent on completely draining.
What are the prices?
1hr Float is $71
2.25hr Float is $110
3pk is $174 ($58 p float)
5pk is $265 ($53 p float)
10 pk is $450 ($45 p float)
You can pay by cash, credit or eftpos.
These prices are subject to change without notice.
We want you to ensure you use all your floats so we don’t have an expiry period on them, you can also share these with a friend.
How long are your sessions?
With a 1hour float you have an additional 15 minutes of shower time included in your session.
This means you will need to shower and get dressed in that time in order for us to change over the float room so the next person can float.
We ask for your courtesy in keeping to this time, being mindful that by taking longer you are impacting on our next floatation and Massage clients.
If 15 minutes is not long enough please do let us know and we can wake you up a few minutes early to ensure the day runs on time.
Do you offer extended float sessions?
Yes we do however only Monday to Friday.
Please give us a call to discuss further.
Please note that extended float sessions are not recommended for first time floaters.
How does a Float fit in with my sport?
The benefit of floating, unlike a massage is that timing of floating really isn’t an issue.
It cannot be done too soon or too late in conjunction with your activities.
You can compete for example and then float immediately after.
Is floating relaxing?
The more you do the better it gets.
You can also float as you need to, in peak times of stress.
I couldn’t switch my mind off in my first float?
Floating is such a different experience that the first session is a bit of a novelty.
You need time to get used to the sensation and figure out what is comfortable for you.
In your second float you will have figured all that out and will know what to expect, and in your third you will be right in the zone!
We recommend having 3 floatation experiences fairly close together to really get the full benefits of floating.
This experience really helps you get to a point where switching your mind off is easy.
From there you will find that from time to time, some of your floats will be with a busy mind and others, you’ll be completely relaxed!
How often should I float?
That is entirely up to you and your personal needs.
There is no right or wrong answer here.
We can help tailor a plan for you and discuss different timing options to suit your needs.
What if I fall asleep?
Don’t worry about it. You obviously needed it.
There is no trouble in falling asleep, we will wake you when the session is over.
And you most definitely will remain floating whilst your asleep.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
No. We have everything you will need.
The float room is equipped with it’s own shower and we provide towels, earplugs and a bathrobe if you are following up your float with a Massage or Sauna.
If however you have special shampoos or conditioners for coloured hair you are welcome to bring them.
If you have a preference for a certain kind of music, you can bring that too but we have music options available.
Anything I shouldn’t do before I float?
Don’t drink a large cup of coffee immediately before floating, it has a diuretic affect and we’d hate for you to need to disrupt your float by needing to use the bathroom.
Avoid a big meal so that it isn’t sitting in your tummy whilst lying down.
Don’t shave or wax 24hrs before your float (your skin will be irritated and may sting)
Do I need to book in advance?
If you wish to come on the weekend or a prime time week day spot (after work) then yes it is recommended that you book ahead.
If your schedule is flexible then it is no problem for you to call and book on the day.
Can I book online?
Yes you can. We have a very easy to use booking system. From your desktop you can access via our website.
From your mobile I’d recommend downloading the MindBody app and adding Paramount Health as one of your favourites. You can then book appointments from there.
Why should I float?
Floating is the most relaxing experience one can have. You should float because:
It will help you relax
It assists with joint discomfort and muscular pain/heaviness often experienced within intense training blocks
Helps you learn/develop meditation skills
Boosts energy levels if you are fatigued and not sleeping well
Releases muscular tension with the large amount of magnesium present in the solution
It offers an environment where you can just be yourself, allowing you to regroup and re center without all the noise of life.
