What is Float Therapy?
The water in a sensory deprivation bath is heated to skin temperature and saturated with Epsom salt, providing buoyancy so you float easily. You enter the room and are cut off from all outside stimulation. As you float weightless in the silence and darkness, the brain slowly enters into a deeply relaxed state.
Float Therapy Helps You Relax.
When the body reaches a certain amount of relaxation, it is able to cause positive physical results like reduced muscle tension, decreased blood pressure, fewer stress hormones, and increased endorphins.
Our Top Tips:
🗸 Arrive to your appointment early (15-20 minutes), take this chance to enjoy the process and get comfortable.
🗸 Enjoy the float enhancers - complimentary backing music can be personally selected through Spotify, post float relaxing choice of teas and chilled water.
🗸 There is no wrong way to float, explore the tub and find a comfortable position.
🗸 It can take time - especially for first time floaters. Your brain isn't used to shutting off so sometimes it can take a while before you realize you've actually relaxed.
🗸 Use the earplugs provided, to keep your ears feeling fresh after the float.
🗸 Use the float halo to cradle your neck, taking you into complete relaxation.

While you can float every day without harm, we find that the relaxing effects of a one-hour float typically last beyond that day. For best results, we recommend regular sessions, and many clients find that floating once or twice a week provides the most benefits.
As you float in complete privacy (locked doors) your welcome to experience the bath as you would at home or your bathers (they wont get ruined). The choice is yours!
While others centres allow dual floats, we don't for your own benefit!
Doing it solo means you will reap all the rewards of the sensory deprivation.
Both actually! Quick rinse first and after to remove any left over Epsom salts accumulated during the float. Rinse your hair thoroughly as well as cleaning out left over salt water from your ears is recommended.
No, drowning in a floatation tank is one of the most common myths of sensory deprivation. It is impossible to not float in a sensory deprivation tank because the Epsom salt causes changes to the composition of the water.
The water is heated to a constant relaxed outer skin temperature of 34.6°C.
Inside the bath the water is approx. 30cm deep with a 25% Epsom salt solution. The air in the room is also maintained at skin temperature by an over head heater, so your mind does not sense a difference between your body & water surrounding it.
