WE REQUIRE THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST 16 YEARS OF AGE TO FLOAT
FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH LIMITED MOBILITY: Please note that in order to enter into the float pod, you will need to step up and over a 24 inch "lip." Then you will be sitting down and laying back. After the float, you will be reversing this (sitting up, standing up, and stepping up and out of the float pod). If you do not feel comfortable performing these movements on your own and in slightly slippery Epsom salt water, we encourage you to bring someone who can assist you.
