Calm Water Floatation

For most of us modern life is often a full-on assault on our senses, the daily commute, traffic, work, kids, noisy neighbours all lead to the build-up of stress and these days it really doesn’t take too long for things to really get on top of us.

Now imagine being able to escape for just one hour and take yourself to an impenetrable silent sanctuary, an oasis of divine calm that is almost womb like where stresses will simply drift away. Replenish your soul, revitalise the senses and leave feeling very, very chilled out, both luxurious and self-indulgent, it is a fantastical, out of this world and relaxing environment. With no special skills required to use the floatation tank, all you need is the ability to lie back and let the warm super buoyant Epsom Salt solution support you as you float weightlessly in absolute peace and quiet. Physically and mentally you can really let go and let every muscle in your body and in turn your mind completely relax like never before.

Floatation has many benefits, both physical and psychological and as research continues it is being proven to help with a number of ailments and medical issues. It promotes calm and relaxation and can help provide relief from stress and anxiety. It eliminates fatigue and jetlag, improves sleep and can alleviate insomnia. It re energises, rejuvenates and revitalises mind and body alike. It increases motivation, diminishes depression, anxiety and fear and facilitates freedom from phobias and addictions. It decreases production & triggers the re-absorption of cortisol, lactic acid and adrenalin and increases the production of endorphins, relieves pain, provides relief from migraine and boosts immune function. It improves circulation and the distribution of oxygen and nutrients, reduces blood pressure, pulse, heart rate and oxygen consumption. It does all this by providing an environment in which the body and mind can completely relax, shifting brain waves from beta (our normal waking state) to lower frequency alpha (responsible for our subconscious and learning), theta and even delta brain (waves which are normally associated with deep REM sleep). This allows the physical body to re balance hormones and creates a mental state of clarity and alertness, with increased creativity and problem solving. It deepens meditation, expands awareness, intensifies the acuteness of all senses and accelerates learning. In essence it is like a reset button for the mind and body.


Perhaps the best way to sum up would be three quotes recently left in the guestbook at our centre. They simply said……..

‘Really helped me relax after a very stressful week. Can’t wait until my next float’

‘A blissful experience, really helps reset the dials and lets the mind and body remember what normal ought to feel


‘Fantastic, everybody should do this!’


Everything you’ll need during your visit is provided including towels and toiletries and after your session you can take time to reflect and enjoy complimentary fruit teas in our post float chill out room. Take a peek into the streetview tour of the building.
