Floatation is a cutting edge method of relaxation and recovery for the mind and body. Our state of the art floatation pods are housed in a specially designed float studio – your very own personal space for 60 minutes of pure bliss. The highly dense epsom salt-water solution within the pod allows you to float effortlessly, suspending and relieving the body from the stresses of gravity; the float-studio environment enables a state of sensory-deprivation, reducing distractions such as light, sound and physical ‘touch’ sensations, which heightens levels of perception, leaving the mind sharp and clear. By facilitating a meditative state, the synergistic effect of all aspects of the floatation experience leaves the mind to work at its most efficient, allowing physical and mental recovery and extreme relaxation, increasing well-being, and enabling accelerated learning, goal visualizing and much, much more.
