What is floating?
Floating is a luxurious escape from the constant stress of life’s daily pressures. It is a rapidly growing holistic treatment that helps to stimulate the body’s own natural power of healing and regeneration. This therapy has been utilized by people who are highly stressed, have chronic pain, adrenal fatigue, sleep disorders, asthma and are in rehabilitation as a shortcut to improving health and well-being.
Our float tanks contain 650kgs of Epsom-salt, saturated into 1200 liters of water, about 11 inches deep. This creates highly buoyant water that creates an experience similar to that of floating in the Dead Sea, you float effortlessly on the surface of the water feeling completely weightless!
Floating is an effective alternative to oral supplements and is tolerated well by those who require large doses of magnesium due to existing deficiencies. The magnesium effectively penetrates the skin to replenish the body’s magnesium levels while strengthening the immune and muscular systems, alleviating pain, promoting quality sleep and protecting cells from oxidative damage.

For the mind
Reduce Stress & Anxiety
Being in low gravity, totally silent and pitch black environment gives the mind a short pause from the outside world, allowing instant inner peace. Flotation therapy is an effective, non-invasive way to treat pain and treat stress-related illness, including fibromyalgia. Having high cortisol levels for prolonged periods can wreck havoc on your health. Floating dramatically lowers stress chemicals such as cortisol, adrenaline, and blood pressure, sending you into deep relaxation.
Increase Creativity & Mental Clarity
When we float, we’re removing many of the tasks processed by the left-brain. The lack of sensory stimulation gives our right-brain a chance to thrive. This simple phenomenon is why so many floaters report increased creativity during a float session. Research has shown that there is more unity between the right and left sides of the brain during and after a float. This synchronization may indeed be one of the biggest benefits of floatation therapy, and explains reports of “an increase in productivity, performance, efficiency, and generalized feelings of competence, confidence, and wholeness.
Improve Sleep Quality & Reduce Jetlag
Floatation therapy may bring improvement in insomnia symptoms. It restores and refreshes the senses, leaving one rested, relaxed and able to forget about those worries and finally enjoy a good night’s sleep. Even if you don’t generally experience sleep problems, after a session you’re likely to find that you sleep much deeper, and feel much more rejuvenated and restored the next day.
Deepen Meditation & Focus
The absence of external stimuli inside a float tank enables you to clear your mind of clutter and stress. An increase in motivation is another. The refreshing experience of a float session gives you a renewed energy with which to face the challenges of daily life. In this distraction-free environment, floating sends your brain into a prolonged theta state, achieving what monks normally meditate for years to get to.
Feelings of Euphoria
Magnesium helps to produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation. Research shows that magnesium also increases energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy packets made in the cells.
For the body
Increase Blood Circulation
The near-weightless environment of floating allows for the muscles and joints of the body to relax, increasing blood flow and helping to more quickly repair muscle tissues and heal the body. This is especially beneficial for those with injuries or chronic pain.
Increase Healing Abilities & Immune System
Float therapy essentially combines two widely known recovery techniques, Epsom salt soaks and meditation. For years, Epsom salt baths were used to heal the body of aches and pains, while meditation was used to heal the mind. This method of self-healing has proven to be much more effective than the use of medication and is most easily accessed through flotation therapy. This means that flotation therapy can help the body to heal itself even in the most extreme circumstances. People who have experienced chronic pain for most of their lives reported feeling an instant relief of their pain that lasted for days after their float.
Better Skin & Healthier Hair
Magnesium sulfate is a natural exfoliator that can help remove dead skin cells to reveal the clear, glowing skin underneath. It is effective for unclogging pores, reducing the number of blackheads and clearing up breakouts. Thanks to the antimicrobial and antibacterial properties of magnesium, floating can help skin conditions like rosacea and eczema. A floatation session can also help restore volume on hair as Epsom salt strips gunk from the hair and restores natural time.
Reduce Bones & Joint Pains
Floating also helps improve blood circulation, which is essential in the healing of the body. Professional athletes use flotation therapy for enhanced performance, accelerated recovery, recuperation, rejuvenation, rehabilitation and neuro-muscular programming. Floating has also been proven to be highly beneficial to pregnant women, allowing them and their baby to relax deeply. In most situations, when the mother is able to relax is the time that the baby is most active but since there is no pressure on the baby from any side it doesn’t feel the need to roll and kick like it usually would. Pregnant women report floating as being the most relaxing experience they’ve had in the entire term of their pregnancy.

Floating During Pregnancy
There is something very womb-like about the float tank. When you turn the lights off and allow your mind and body to drift into deep relaxation, you can often hear your own heartbeat and even your baby’s heartbeat. While listening to those sounds it’s easy to imagine the experience of the baby inside the uterus, which allows for a very special connection. Not only can floating reduce stress, it can also reduce any swelling in the joints and lower blood pressure. Truly a treat for every mother-to-be. You can safely float during first, second or third trimester of pregnancy.
