  Q: Dear Naked Barb E.,

I notice that you are floating in the buff.  Do I HAVE to be naked to float?

Signed, I Got Clothes Under My Clothes!

A: Dear Under Clothes,
Heavens No!  You don't HAVE to be naked...You GET to be naked!  Understand that you will be in a private, locked suite and will shower just before and again after floating.  The reason floating naked is the best option for your float is to eliminate any tactile sensory input.   Tugging on a bathing suit could create a distraction for the mind and prevent the best floating experience possible.  However, if you REALLY want to float with a bathing suit, that's ok.

Q: Dear Naked Barb E.,
How is the water kept clean?
Signed,  Aquaman

A: Dear Aquaman,
First let me say I have always been a big fan!  Superheros are the best!  You can be assured that the water will be regularly tested and kept in optimal condition.  Between each float, a pump will draw all the water through a sophisticated system which exposes the water to not only a filter, but also UltraViolet light and Hydrogen Peroxide.  The 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salts additionally provides another level of disinfectant.   Many Health Departments, once they understand more about floating, consider float tanks to be very minimal risk.  However, Paradise Float Spa will be contracting with Chesapeake Environmental Lab to ensure the highest quality and safest water.  Only the Best for Paradise Float Spa!

Q: Dear Naked Barb E.,
I have claustrophobia.  There's no way I'm getting in a little dark tank!  How do you do it?
Signed,  Never climbing in a casket!

A: Dear No Casket Climber,
I completely understand your feeling.   I also have claustrophobia!  According to Wikipedia, claustrophobia is the fear of having no escape, and being closed in to a small space.  The beautiful thing is that the float rooms at Paradise Float Spa are HUGE!  7 feet high, 7 feel long and 5 feet wide.  Certainly not a 'small' space.  Plus you are free to open the door and escape whenever you want.  This is not scary at all.  You can do this!  You will be so proud of yourself when you confront this fear and do it anyway!

  Q: Dear Naked Barb E.,
I am on the tall side, over 6.5 feet.  Will your float rooms be long enough to accommodate my height?
Signed,  One Tall Drink of Water

A: Dear Tall Drink,
Not a problem, my height-enriched friend!   Our luxury Ocean Float rooms are 7.5' long and 5.5' wide, which will certainly accommodate your lengthy frame.  As a matter of fact, many athletes, including NFL stars utilize flotation therapy to recover after serious workouts and gain mental focus on their game.
