Floatation Suite

Float in our airy pool of warm water and Epsom salts for an hour, to completely relax and relieve any stresses, aches and pains.


Booking a floatation experience

All floats are in our lovely, open (no cover) and spacious double-width float pool. Our 75 minute sessions give you plenty of time to relax and rejuvenate.

You can book a float session for one (with the pool and room to yourself) or for two together (perhaps an individual with a carer, a couple, two friends or a parent and child)*, with plenty of room for both.

Float session for one £50
Float session for two – £70

Each float session provides a full 60 minutes for your floatation plus 15 minutes for showering, changing and unwinding in our beautiful, bespoke floatation therapy room.

As a Covid security measure, please bring your own towels (or we can provide a Unity towel for a charge of £5 to cover the necessary cleaning costs).

What is floating?

After undressing and showering, you step into a fibreglass pool containing 26cm of skin temperature water (heated constantly) and 300 kgs of Epsom salts which nourish and soften your skin without wrinkling it like sea salt does. The high concentration of salt allows your body to float effortlessly. You simply sit down and slowly lie back until your head is either touching the pillow (if you choose to use one) or touching the water. As you lie back your body slowly lifts to the surface of the water and about 1/3 of your body is above the water line. It is the closest thing to attaining zero gravity on earth.

How do I float ?

You don’t actually ‘do’ anything in the pool, you just let your mind wander and let your body enjoy the experience. There is no risk of turning over in the pool if you do fall asleep.

Access to our flotation pool

We have a double float pool for you to enjoy on your own, with a loved one or carer if you need a little extra support. We also have a hoistadult changing bed and disabled parking immediately next to a step-free entrance, if you require these. Please just call us and let us know how we can tailor your visit to your specific needs.

Benefits of floating

Floating in a pool of warm water into which the Epsom salts have been dissolved, allows your body to totally relax. As every muscle in your body is 100% relieved from all tension, you can quickly go into a state of deep relaxation.

Floating has many benefits: it relieves stress, nervousness, anxiety, jet lag, insomnia and muscular aches and pains.

There are many medical conditions which have been shown to benefit from floatation therapy such as anxiety, depression, complete physical & mental de-stressing, relieves aches & pains, deep muscular relaxation and arthritis, back pain, pre-menstrual tension, post natal depression, asthma, migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular conditions, osteoporosis and synovitis to name a few.

You will feel the benefits for a few days after your float session. However, most people can only fully appreciate all the benefits of floating after having experienced 3 float sessions and so encourage all first time floaters to try floating at least 3 times.

A float session is a deeply meditative experience particularly before a massage or after a yoga class.

The science behind floatation

We recently conducted a thorough study (science researchers call it a literature review) of the scientific evidence for the health benefits of floatation, centred on mainstream, published, peer-reviewed research studies. The work conclusively demonstrates the significant benefits offered by floatation therapy in managing or alleviating conditions including anxiety and depression, stress, pain (particularly stress-related muscular pain), hypertension and chronic tension headaches. It reduces blood pressure and levels of stress-related hormones and offers improved sleep (and improved ease in falling asleep) and heightened feelings of optimism, serenity, relaxation and wellbeing, with increased energy and performance.

Floatation can also play a significant part in the care, symptom management and rehabilitation of Long Covid patients.
