Welcome to The FloAtation Sanctuary

Relax, Recover
& Rejuvenate

at New Plymouth’s state of the art Floatation and Recovery Center

Float to well-being, the new way to recharge!

The Floatation Sanctuary, arguably New Zealand’s Premier Floatation Centre, provides the perfect environment for you to experience deep relaxation and rejuvenation.

Our purpose-built centre is designed to take you away from the constant sensory bombardment of everyday life. You will experience the power of restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST), let the outside world fade away, and in turn, allow your mind to unwind and find clarity. It’s the perfect, time eficient and cost effective way to reduce stress and heal. The ideal way to press reset… and get back to being you.

Set within a luxurious, calming environment to invoke a sense of deep relaxation and rest, our float rooms utilise the world’s best filtration and sanitation system. You float in a pristine solution of warm water saturated with Epsom Salt, which allows you to float effortlessly, freeing you from gravity, eliminating the impact of environmental stimulus, allowing both the body and mind to fully relax and heal.

The Floatation Sanctuary also offers a variety of other recovery services including Infrared Sauna, Pneumatic Compression systems, and an Oxygen Bar, all focused on elevating your overall health and wellbeing.


Allow your body, mind and soul sense a haven of tranquility

Floatation therapy involves floating in a sensory deprivation tank filled with warm water saturated with Epsom salts (MgSO4), providing deep relaxation and eliminating distractions from the sense of touch, light, sound and the impacts of gravity, providing the perfect environment to completely relax both mind and body.

Pneumatic Compression is a system that uses intermittent sequential air compression to effectively mobilise fluid and enhance circulation, reducing soreness and swelling in the limbs, often used in medical and physical therapy settings to help reduce limb edema, eliminate lactic acid, prevent blood clots and promote healing.

Cold Compression or Cryo Compression is a therapeutic technique that combines the benefits of cold therapy (icing) and intermittent compression to treat injuries and manage pain. It involves applying cold to a specific area of the body while also exerting pressure using specially designed compression wraps to help reduce swelling and facilitate faster healing.

Infrared sauna uses infrared rays to promote deep heat generation in the body with only a small percentage of the heat heating the air. This results in a deeper, more detoxifying sweat at a lower ambient air temperature than traditional saunas, allowing more effective removal of toxins and stored fats, increase blood flow, improve skin, relieve muscle pain and tension, and promoting overall well-being.

Our Oxygen Bar provides for the administration of oxygen at almost double the atmospheres concentration via a headset that places the oxygen just below the nose to improve the oxygenation of the body and help in the healing process.
