Float therapy is a powerful tool for wellness, relaxation, pain relief and better sleep. As with any therapy, with regular use its benefits are enhanced. Stress, tension and pain have formed over time and will take some time to experience the greatest relief—luckily, floating is a relaxing, fun,and effortless way to do so!
Float therapy offers relief and benefits which are cumulative—they build on themselves with each subsequent session. We like to say “the more you float, the better it gets”, as floats themselves deepen beyond the first session. Though flotation is an “effortless” therapy, the body and mind actually learn how to relax into the float with each session.
For these reasons, we encourage guests to return to floating more than once, and to receive sessions on a regular basis to maintain their benefits.
As you may have gathered by the name, it involves floating in a pod or room that is designed for short term sensory deprivation. This is typically done within a large tank of super-saturated magnesium water that makes you completely buoyant.
Float tanks are also called Isolation tanks or Sensory Deprivation Tanks. While they sound like something out of an old-school war movie, they have recently gained popularity among elite athletes, those who struggle with stress, and people with various health problems.
On a practical level, floating is typically done for 90 minutes in body-temperature salt water in a room devoid of light and sound.

You get your own room complete with a high quality shower, please shower pre- and post-float.
We provide towels, ear plugs, robe, clothing hooks, a lockable door in the room. This is your space to enter or exit the tank as you like. Our vanity room is complete with Hollywood mirror and hairdryer.
Our float pods are huge meaning you don’t feel claustrophobic. They are the most hygienic floatation tanks in the world. Our processes and people are focused on keeping it that way! The float pod has a pressurised, 24-hour filtration system ensuring total filtration between floats. The tank water is fully-filtered 4 times between each float, passing through a 1-micron filter.
You will enjoy a 90 minute float in your own private float room with the spacious space. Please allow an additional 15 minutes for pre and post-float showers. This time will seem to pass very quickly once in the pod as your mind and body float away. The float ends as it begins with soft music and gentle coloured lights shimmering off the ceiling of the tank.
Lie back into the water, try not to touch your eyes as it is epsom salt water, let your head totally relax, the water will support it. Focus gently on your breath, perhaps even count the breaths for a while. You can position your arms above or below your head, whatever feels best. It can take a while to let go, sometimes muscles ache as they relax, all totally normal so just relax.
