Floatation Therapy (sensory deprivation) allows you too disconnect from the mental & physical stresses of life. When removed from the chaos of our always on and over-stimulated world, we give our body, mind and nervous system a genuine opportunity to REST. The bodies natural healing mechanics are activated & accelerated resulting in the ultimate recovery and rejuvenation that leaves your whole being feeling, clearer, more vibrant and free of stress and discomfort.

Floatation Therapy Benefits

cross.png

Pain Relief

Floatation Therapy reduces stiffness & tenderness in the muscles and alleviates symptoms of chronic pain caused by arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis & migraines.

As the body relaxes, tension is reduced and circulation improves. This triggers a release of endorphins that flow through the body to help relieve pain and physical discomfort naturally. 

The pain reducing qualities of using a floatation tank have been extensively recorded. Experts studying the effects of Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy, or R.E.S.T, found that floatation benefits chronic pain patients greatly. The majority of users, who have been suffering from chronic pain, even for extended periods of time, can benefit from their very first float session.

Stress Relief

Floating encourages stillness, calmness and is a very effective strategy to reach deep states of relaxation and a natural way to  activate the relaxation response (opposite to fight or flight).

 

Floating lowers your body’s levels of cortisol, the main chemical component of stress, anxiety & nervous tension and the brain then releases elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins, the neurotransmitters of happiness. Not only will you emerge feeling relaxed, happy and rejuvenated, the effects can last for days after also.

Insomnia Relief

Float Therapy gives your body & mind a break from tension, stress and anxiety that all contribute to sleep disturbances and insomnia. 

 

One hour in our floatpod is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep and is a natural alternative to sleep-inducing medications. Furthermore, your delta and theta brainwaves increase at lower frequencies during floatation therapy, which work to promote sounder sleep.

Floating  also provide a digital detox from blue light to help regulate your sleep schedule and improve the overall quality of your sleep. The effects from floating can last for several days post your float which can help to create a healthier sleep routine.

Accelerated Recovery

Floating eases physical and emotional tension,  promotes blood circulation through the entire body and reduces inflammation, stress hormones & heart rate.

 

This combination allows your body's natural healing abilities to kick in, which can facilitate quicker healing and recovery times after injuries or illness.

 

Achieving deep rest during the recovery stage of muscle repair and growth can also enhance athletic performance by improving muscle recovery time and eliminating fatigue.

Pregnancy Float

A lot of first-time expectant mums are nervous and stressed leading up to the birth of their baby.

 

Not only is your body going through massive changes physically and hormonally, there’s also a lot to do prior to bub’s arrival. Lets not to forget mum’s that already have a toddler or young child to care for also!

Regular float sessions will literally have you floating your way through pregnancy with a heightened sense of calmness and clarity, a positive mindset and wonderful sense of wellbeing.

Prior to your floats, we will inform you of the most comfortable and the recommended pregnancy float positions to ensure maximum comfort and relief with every float.  We also supply additional pillows and pool noodles to ensure you have the most relaxed and healthy pregnancy float possible.

 

Due to common first trimester side effects such as nausea, the industry recommends floating  between weeks 12-37 of your pregnancy.

 

While most GPs and midwives have no concern with pregnant women floating, we recommend checking in with them first to get the all clear.

Physical Wellness

Float Therapy induces a sense of of weightlessness that reduces pressure on the spine and relives tension in the muscles, joints and soft tissue.

Floating boosts endorphins and heightens your senses allowing you to smell, taste, hear, and feel your world in a whole new way.

 

The benefits of magnesium rich water are also known to soften and heal skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite and increase lustre of hair to make you glow inside and out.

Mental Focus

By removing distractions that can cloud the brain and prevent it from relaxing, floating stimulates downtime in the brain, which has a positive effect on creativity, learning & memory retention.

 

Floating induces a Theta brainwave state and improves the connection of the right (creative) and left (analytical) hemispheres of the brain.

 

The result is increased mental clarity & alertness, energy, motivation, productivity, creativity, insight & inspiration.
