I am pregnant or breastfeeding…
Great! Floating has given much needed physical relief to many pregnant women over the years and provides a gorgeous intimate space to connect with your growing baby.
As always, we would ask that you check with your health care provider before you float in case there is any reason in your individual circumstances why you should not.
Floating is totally okay when you are breastfeeding too.
I have a skin condition…
If you are having a flare up of your skin condition, for example eczema of psoriasis it is probably not a good idea to float. For one thing it is really going to sting.
However, floating can be beneficial for long term treatment of these conditions. It has cleared up Gemma’s eczema almost completely – no more flare ups!
I am currently undergoing medical treatment…
Floating can provide much needed relaxation during medical treatment. However, it could have an adverse effect depending on the treatment you are having. As such, please always check with your health care provider if it is safe for you to float.
We are pretty awesome at talking about all things float related, but we are not doctors and cannot provide any medical advice.
I have an ongoing health condition…
Your safety is really important to us.
You know yourself and your health better than anyone, we ask everyone to consider whether floating would be good for them using common sense and advise that you seek advice from a medical professional before floating.
We would be happy for you to pop in and talk it through with us, but ultimately we are not doctors and cannot give any medical advice.
You will need to seek medical advice if you have any conditions related to your inner ear, low blood pressure, slipped disks or your heart.
Due to health and safety, you are advised not to float if you have Epilepsy, Schizophrenia or a current ear infection.
I have a physical disability…
You are welcome to float with us if you can do so safely. Things to consider are – access to the pods is down a flight of stairs and there is a lip to step over to get in and out of the pods.
We are unable to provide any physical assistance, but we are happy for you to bring someone with you to support with this if needed. They are welcome to stay in the floatation room with you for the duration of the float or wait upstairs, at no extra charge of course.
