What is a float tank? 

This is a small space where a person immerses themselves in water that is treated with specially formulated Epsom and added to 1000 liters of water, which is heated to 95.9 F (skin temperature). The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that are not.

The buoyancy created by the dense Epsom-salt solution effectively removes the effects of gravity on the body, and brings the individual close to an experience of total weightlessness. Unless you are an astronaut, this is the only situation you will encounter where your body is free from the harmful forces of gravity. Freed from all sensation of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound (which together account for 90% of normal neuromuscular activity), you conserve and redirect vast amounts of natural physical and mental energy. 

Float pods are used to perform Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST) and is also known as float therapy. The ultra-deep relaxation of floating “resets” the body’s hormonal and metabolic balance, strengthening resistance to and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise. With ear plugs in and, if you wish, the tank’s interior lights off, the quietness and the darkness allow the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation possible. A huge amount of brain power is used every second in order to deal with the strain that gravity places on one’s body but now floating weightlessly your body is perfectly supported by a cush- ion of silky skin-temperature liquid.

With no commands needing to be sent out, the logical side of the brain is rendered redundant, and its activity slows down until it synchronizes with the creative side. This leaves the individual in a dream-like state, akin to the thoughts experienced just before you go to sleep. In this state, the brain releases vast amounts of endorphins.

While the state of relaxation may be deep and profound, the individual’s brain stays dreamily alert. The brain gradually shifts from its usual waking beta state to generate deep alpha, theta or even delta waves, the state-of-mind That Buddhist monks try to reach through hours of meditation and years of training. You can achieve this in a matter of Minutes just by lying back into the silky warm sea of bliss that is the floatation experience!

No matter how long you float, your skin will not form any wrinkles that are normally associated with prolong water soaking. The salt is continually absorbed by the skin, allowing the skin to remain smooth and supple.

Your body absorbs an abundance of healthy minerals such as magnesium and sulphates through the skin. Both minerals are available in Epsom salt. One hour in the Dreampod will allow you to supplement your body’s requirement of magnesium.

While you may prefer to float alone, our Dreampod XL is big enough for 2 people. We offer couple and family floats.
