Many people have certain fears or concerns before they use the tank for the first time. Fears such as being alone in the dark, drowning, not having enough air, claustrophobia, and others.
The fears are usually the thought or the idea that you won’t be in control of the situation, but that is absolutely not the case with.You have 100% control over your environment and you are able to go in and out of the tank as you please. You can use the tank with the door completely open, you can keep it partially open, or you can close it entirely. There is no particular way to use the tank that is more correct than the other. Whichever way is most comfortable for you is the correct way.
Before you enter the tank, you canopen the door just to feel the weight of it. It is very light. If you close the door while inside the tank, it is completely dark and that may be disorienting. We suggest you get familiar with your environment inside the tank before you close it and turn off the lights. Make sure you are aware of where the door and light buttons are located. If you try to open the door and it doesn’t open, you’re pushing in the wrong spot. Don’t panic and continue looking for it or search for the light button.
1. If you get any salt water in your eyes you will be uncomfortable for a few minutes. To avoid getting drips of salt water in your eyes, push your hair back on your fore- head when you change from lying down to sitting up. Also keep your salty hands away from your eyes. If you do happen to get salt in your eyes, have your towel where you can easily reach it, and use it to wipe your eyes. Also, please use the spray bottle filled with fresh water to spray your eyes if they begin to sting. If you have cuts or scratches or have recently shaved, those areas may sting for several minutes after coming in contact with the salt water. Although the salt is effective for helping heal these wounds, we understand that the pain can be a bit uncomfortable. We will have Vaseline provided for you to rub on these areas to alleviate the pain. Ifyou have any open cuts use liquid bandage to seal them.
2. Remove your metal jewelry and contact lenses. We have a case for your contact lenses in the cabinet.
3. Rinse thoroughly and dry your face before you get in the tank.
