Muscles Recovery & Fatigue
Workouts can often lead to a build-up of Lactic Acid in our muscles, resulting in muscles cramps and DOMS. By lying in our 1100lbs of Magnesium Epsom Salts floatation pods, the body breakdowns the lactic acid immediately.
What’s more, floating can also relieve pressure in the body, allowing your spine to find its natural alignment, which can reduce back pain.
Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain and extreme tiredness throughout the body.
The absence of light and sound coupled with magnesium rich Epsom Salts, help many Fibromyalgia users reduce joint & muscle pain and improve overall sleep patterns.
Arthritis & Circulation
Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and swelling (inflammation) in the joints.
The Magnesium Sulfate in the Epsom salts used in our floatation pods act as a ‘super food’ by the human body. These salts are absorbed directly into the skin reducing inflammation around the joints.
Often pregnant woman report a reduction of erratic movements of the baby inside the womb after a float session. This is due to a phenomenon called the “mirror effect”. The baby feels safe & secure inside the womb, therefore the mother shares a similar experience in the warm isolation tank. Woman also report a stronger connection with their baby during and after a session.
PTSD is an anxiety disorder caused by stressful, frightening or distressing events. It is most commonly diagnosed to members of our armed forces, who often suffer traumatic events whilst serving for their country. Due to our peaceful and relaxing pods, many clients have stated they’ve felt a dramatic drop in their stress and anxiety levels, after their floatation therapy session.

Floatation therapy – what to expect?
Floatation therapy is proven to be one of the many ways to relax and relieve any worries and additional anxieties. By escaping the outside world and having 1 hour of complete calm, you’ll find yourself feeling both energised and relaxed.
With the reduction in our primary senses such as; touch, sound, and sight, our frontal lobe in the brain (the area responsible for planning and self-conscious awareness) allows us to meditate easier than ever before and reach a deeper level of mindfulness.
Floatation therapy helps to reduce the “workload” of the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which is responsible for planning and execution of behaviour, speech and logical reasoning. By doing so, it allows our mind and body to reach ultimate calmness and relaxation.
Meditation & Creativity
The floatation tanks causes a person’s brain waves to change from a ‘beta’ state (wide awake and alert) to ‘alpha’ and finally into ‘theta’ state.
The float tank provides a reliable means to achieve & sustain this beneficial state without the years of practice that is normally required by advanced meditators. We recommend an hour long float session for this.
Depression & Stress
Stress can often suppress the immune system, increasing the risk of infections; slows down the metabolism & restricts the body of vital nutrients.
Resulting in exhaustion and depleted levels of vitamins and minerals, whilst our energy continues to plummet our bodies ability to produce Adrenaline decreases too. Floatation therapy helps prevent all of these issues, relieving the body & mind of negative thoughts and feelings.
Jetlag & Insomina
Insomnia is a sleep disorder, resulting in individuals having difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep as long as desired. It is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood.
Floatation therapy is quickly becoming a popular technique for minimizing the effects of both this and jet lag. Did you know a one hour float is equivalent to 1 hour’s sleep?
