Introduction to Floating
Flotation Therapy is a one of a kind experience whereby you effortlessly float in a super-saturated Epsom-salt solution, which allows you to fully relax your mind, body, and soul, and take some time yourself, away from the outside world.
The solution is heated and maintained at skin temperature (37°C) and the environment in the tank is controlled so that the air is also skin temperature. This creates an environment similar to that of the Dead Sea but without the sensation of temperature or movement.
The water in each pod contains 525kg of magnesium rich Epsom salts, allowing you to float effortlessly.
What is Epsom Salt?
Epsom salt, is a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulphate.
Renowned as a natural remedy for a number of ailments. Many people use Epsom salt for health problems, such as sore muscles, aches and pains.
Epsom salt also has many beauty related uses, as it has many amazing benefits for the skin.
When Epsom salt is dissolved in water, it releases magnesium and sulfate ions. These particles are absorbed through your skin, providing you with magnesium and sulfates — which serve important bodily functions.
How Does it Work?
The super-saturated Epsom Salt solution increases the buoyancy in the tank so that once you lay back you’re taken up by the solution which creates a feeling of
anti-gravity, removing all pressure external pressures on the body
The main benefit of flotation therapy is the sensory deprivation aspect, in which you will be in an environment with no noise, no light, and complete weightlessness, taking you into a state of deep relaxation. Unless you prefer to keep the lights and music on during your session!
