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.

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.

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 hoist,  adult changing bed and disabled parking, If you require these. Please just call us and let us know how we can tailor your visit to your specific needs.
