FLOATING IS ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT YOU WON’T BE DOING.
- You won’t be fighting gravity: The 450kg of Epsom salt in the water takes care of that while you lie on your back.
- You lose track of where your body ends and the solution begins: the water is kept at 35 degrees. This is skin- receptor neutral, which gives you the feeling of floating in space.
- Noise from the outside doesn’t reach you.Your ears stay just below the water, and the pods are insulated against sound.
- After you shut the door and turn off the light, you float in total darkness.
- For an hour the outside world is gone, and amazing things happen. It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in information your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal.
- Your mind is free to mull things over without distraction, your brain waves slow down, and your body gets to REST, REPAIR and RENEW.
It does something magical to you that you can’t get any other way.
Your mind, body, soul and spirit will be rested, repaired and renewed as you are freed from all distractions.
Floating naturally increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, enhancing your mood. Cortisol is decreased, improving sleep and reducing stress. Studies show that people with anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, PTSD, anorexia and even jet-lag, have benefited from floating. It is the ideal environment for deep, soul quenching meditation and prayer.
Magnesium from the Epsom Salts is absorbed through the skin and has therapeutic benefits. It reduces inflammation, increases blood supply to the muscle and reduces lactic acid. This is beneficial for acute and chronic conditions, sports recovery and muscle repair. It is also wonderful for your skin and hair – and you don’t get all wrinkly!
Floating provides the space and time to reflect on your life and what is important to you. Distraction free, your level of concentration, knowledge absorption and visualisation is astounding. Creativity and clarity abounds. People have written books, prepared speeches and improved their mental wellbeing while floating. Rediscover your dreams, passions and visions, get back on track and choose to thrive!.
DO I HAVE TO CLOSE THE POD DOOR OR TURN OFF THE LIGHTS?
No, you don’t. Closing the door and turning off lights allows you to maximize the benefits of the float session by truly minimising all sensory
stimulation. However, it is certainly possible to enjoy a float session without.
WILL I FEEL CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
The pods are quite spacious, and you are always in control of your environment and can get out at any time. People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems.
HOW DO YOU KEEP THE PODS CLEAN?
The salt solution is fully filtered between each float and the pods cleaned. The Epsom salt is also naturally antiseptic and anti-microbial. All clients shower before and after the float.
CAN I DROWN IF I FALL ASLEEP?
No. Some people fall asleep, but the solution is so buoyant that you stay afloat.
CAN I FLOAT IF I AM PREGNANT?
Yes! In fact, floatation therapy is highly beneficial for pregnant women. It will allow you to escape the strain caused by the weight of your growing belly. Many pregnant women find they have a special connection with the baby in the womb too.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I FLOAT?
The more you float the greater the benefits – it is up to you and what you want to gain from floating. We suggest you float at least 3 times fairly close together when you first start – as it takes 2-3 floats before you completely relax to the new environment. Some people with specific needs such as anxiety/depression, fibromyalgia, high stress, anorexia find floating once a week for a couple of months has a greater effect on their health. Others float once a month or more as a healthy lifestyle practice. We have memberships for regular floaters at more affordable prices.
CAN ANYONE FLOAT?
Almost anyone can float, with a few exceptions. Those with alcohol or drugs in their system or an open wound or suicidal tendencies should not float. Please Note: Those who have recently coloured their hair or had a spray tan are not permitted. The water will carry the dye.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
No, just yourself. Towels, earplugs, and everything else that you might need are provided.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Absolutely. It can be great to have someone around to talk to about the experience afterwards. We have two tanks and a lovely reflection lounge and patio area to enjoy a herbal tea and chat with your friend after the float.
IS THIS NEW-AGEY MUMBO JUMBO?
Floating has been around for over 60 years and has oodles of published research to back it up. No mumbo or jumbo here.
