Flotation Therapy

WHAT IS FLOTATION THERAPY

Floatation Therapy has been around for a long time and dates back to the 50’s and 60’s but has gained popularity in the last few years within Australia and abroad for the extensive list of health benefits it provides.

Not only does floating provide the floater with a unique, deep relaxation experience but the benefits that come from floating regularly in a high concentration of epsom salt and skin temperature water are inspiring many to ask “So what is floating exactly?”.

Well to summarise, a float session begins when the tank’s door is closed.

Light is completely eliminated and sound is reduced to near zero through the combination of the tank’s insulation and submersion of the floater’s ears. Earplugs can further block outside noises.

The air and water within the tank are maintained at a constant skin temperature. This neutral temperature prevents the physical and mental distractions caused by cold and heat.

 

The silky nature of the solution further reduces the separation between the floater’s skin and its surroundings, so that the body seems to gradually disappear. The combined elements of the tank, therefore, virtually eliminate all external stimulation for the floater.

Your muscles will begin to relax once your body acclimatises itself to the water and you will feel your entire body let go. We provide our floater’s with earplugs and a pillow to ensure complete comfort.

Floating is done in a float tank which is filled with 10 inches of body temperature water and filled with a high concentration of epsom salt (magnesium sulphate).

The salt in the water allows your entire body to float effortlessly like one would if they were to swim in the Dead Sea.

In the tank you are given the option of music, guided mediation or complete quiet (after all everyone relaxes differently).

If you don’t fall asleep during your first float, don’t let this prevent you from floating again as its very common for first time floater’s to not fall asleep. It’s an entirely new experience for most and with the busy lives we all lead these days, it’s not unusual to take a little longer to let go and allow your mind to quiet.

  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Improve sleep and provide sufferers of insomnia with relief

I had my first floating experience today. I spent an hour submerged in salty water and boy did I walk away feeling like I’d slept for 12 hours straight! Designed to help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and regulate hormones, it was just what I needed after a crazy week
