What is a Float Tank?

The Float Tank is a standalone unit that can be easily fitted into a new or existing room. It’s big enough for you to easily stand up, lie down and move around inside. The tank contains 25cm depth of very salty water containing Epsom Salts, 6 times saltier than the sea. When you lie back you float effortlessly, fully supported by the water – you can lie there for hours without getting tired.

The Float Tank is fully insulated from sound and light, so you can either enjoy gentle music from the speakers and soft starlight from the ceiling, or remove all sensory stimulation for truly deep relaxation.

A float session typically lasts an hour:

  • You undress and shower in the private room, then enter the Float Tank and close the door if you wish
  • Relaxing music plays softly while underwater lights provide a beautiful ambience and colour therapy
  • You lie back in the pool, floating effortlessly
  • After 5 minutes the music and stars gently fade away leaving no sound, no light and almost no gravity acting on your body – just you and your mind
  • After 10-15 minutes your brain’s ‘chatter’ dies down and you enter a state of deep trance-like relaxation
  • After 50 minutes the music gently returns and you slowly get up, leave the Float Tank and shower, feeling refreshed and relaxed

Health Benefits

Floating is fantastically good for you and the great thing is it requires very little effort from you, unlike dieting or slaving away in the gym. Floatation has been shown to help relieve stress, anxiety, sports injuries, chronic fatigue, jet lag, pain, headache and migraine, back problems, aches from pregnancy, high blood pressure and arthritis.

After just one or two sessions you will notice:

  • Skin: leaves amazingly silky, soft and smooth skin, brings relief to rashes and other skin disorders
  • Body: relaxes whole body and reduces muscle stiffness, takes weight off body, easing back and joint pains
  • Mind: greatly reduces stress and anxiety, refreshes the mind and boosts creativity

Various scientific studies have shown:

  • Muscle tension down 33%, pain relief up 33%, general relaxation up 30%
  • Significant decreases in anxiety, painful areas and pain intensity; increased positive outlook after high stress and burn-out
  • Significant improvement in headaches with benefit lasting 6 months after treatment
  • Significant increase in performance on mental tasks after floating

Epsom Salts (magnesium sulphate heptahydrate) are an excellent source of magnesium, which is considered a natural stress reliever. Many people with Western diets are slightly deficient in magnesium, which can lead to problems such as anxiety, insomnia, irritability, nausea, heart disease and muscle spasms.

Magnesium can be readily absorbed through the skin while floating and this provides a gentle way to boost magnesium levels effectively.
