Float Therapy


What is Float Therapy?

Floating is both safe and simple. You firstly shower, get in the roomy floatation pod, lie down and let your mind and body release built up stress, anxiety and tension. The positive effects of floating can often last for several days. Deep relaxation is achieved by allowing your body the freedom to float weightlessly in a concentrated salt solution in a specially designed light proof and sound proof pod.

The quiet darkness of this bliss filled sanctuary allows your mind to remove all the white noise and sensory input of the external world, allowing you to easily slip into a deeply relaxed and meditative state. By freeing your mind from all outside distractions, your body can focus on repairing and rejuvenating itself.

The concentrated Epsom salt solution is super buoyant with high levels of magnesium sulphate, which is easily absorbed through the skin, helping to ease muscular pain, alleviating stress and promote relaxation.

Go into your first float with an open mind, relax back into the water, let go and enjoy the beauty of float therapy.

Your Sensory Experience


Easily control your light settings from inside the pod. Light on or off and calming colour light therapy. Your room light is turned off for your comfort throughout your float.


We don’t recommend tasting the water, I already have and I’m happy to note… it tastes like Salt. Very bitter and will make your face go scary. Please DO taste the herbal tea before and after your treatment. A range of flavors to try – Fruits of Eden, Lemongrass and Ginger, Peppermint, Cammomile. Which one was chosen today?


All sessions can include 10mins music at the start and 5mins at the end, but if that’s not your thing, ask us about our options – music throughout, no music at all.


The cleansing smell of Epsom Salt and our beautiful anti-bacterial Clove spray awaits you inside the pod. Outside, enjoy smells of lavendar and lemongrass in the Chill Out Area and our beautiful organic bubbles products in the shower.


The Epsom Salt will leave your skin feeling magnificent! Silkier than ever before. Also during your float experience, you can expect not to feel the water at all. Heated perfectly to your body temperature, feel your limbs glide through the water like you’re in space.
