“A relaxed, friendly atmosphere awaited me and the float itself was lovely. I left feeling quite invigorated yet relaxed and slept really well that night and the following nights (after months of sleeping issues). Would recommend.”

Company Director

“The whole experience was everything that I anticipated with much more. The Floatation was lovely, just the thought of escaping into that little bubble again brings me quite a lot of comfort! As for afterwards, I found that I was very calm, very relaxed. I’d noticed how a lot of my anxiety “ticks” – jigging of my knees, rubbing my legs etc had come to a complete halt.My sleep was excellent, slept through the night uninterrupted”
