What is Float Therapy?
In short, it is an effortless method to attaining the deepest rest and relaxation that you’re likely to ever experience...
Float Therapy (i.e. Floating) allows you to disconnect from the mental & physical stresses of your life, and... Breathe... resulting in the ultimate rest and relaxation that leaves your whole being feeling clearer, more vibrant and free of stress and discomfort.
When removed from the chaos of our always on and over-stimulated world, we give our body and brain a chance to relax, recover & rejuvenate; enabling us to improve our mood and our ability to handle daily strife.
This recalibration of the body and mind is achieved within our premium and spacious Floatpod. The lightproof and soundproof floatpod contains ~550kg of naturally sourced magnesium sulphate, also known as Epsom salt, dissolved into 30 cm of water heated to skin temperature.
This super-saturated water solution allows you to effortlessly float and reduces ~90% of the Earth’s gravitational force on the body. You quickly lose track where your body ends and the water begins giving you the sensation of floating in space.
Whether you're seeking next level wellness benefits, natural stress and pain relief or just an escape from the hustle and bustle, Floating offers your body and mind an ultra-relaxing 60 minute transformation and holiday that you can take anytime.
Floating, like yoga or meditation is a practice and we initially recommend a minimum of 3 floats to fully understand the benefits floatation therapy will have or you.
The first float can vary, for many it’s an immediate physical and mental release with a feeling of unparalleled relaxation.
For others, its a slight challenge to let go, as our non-stop, digital and hectic lives do not support a practice for stillness. This is both the challenge and the necessity of floating!
For all however, floating evolves from a unique experience to an anchor for well-being, serenity and a connection within.
The Magic of Epsom Salt
It’s not just the secret ingredient to being weightless; Epsom salt also benefits your health in many ways. This natural mineral replenishes your magnesium levels; reducing inflammation, relieving headaches, and flushing toxins.
As the fourth most abundant mineral in your body, magnesium is involved in over 325 biochemical reactions that benefit your heart and nervous system. Therefore, soaking in high concentration of Epsom salt promotes detoxifying and anti-inflammatory effects.
Performance & Recovery
Soaking in Epsom salt water is deeply soothing for your mind and body, promoting better circulation, loosening tight muscle fibres and encouraging healing of muscle tissue.
Sleep & Stress Reduction
Healthy magnesium levels help to boost brain neurotransmitters that are responsible for inducing sleep and reducing stress.
