About Us


Where you can relax and enjoy life

At The Floatation Sanctuary, our mission is to provide a holistic approach to wellness, helping our clients discover the profound benefits of floatation therapy. We believe that by offering a serene and supportive environment, we can assist individuals in achieving a state of deep relaxation, reduced stress, and improved overall well-being.

Our team is dedicated to promoting both physical and mental health by harnessing the power of floatation therapy, tailored to meet each client’s unique needs.

Our state-of-the-art floatation pods are designed with the utmost care, ensuring that our clients have a comfortable and tranquil experience throughout their session. We take pride in maintaining the highest levels of cleanliness and safety, using advanced filtration systems to keep the water pristine and adhering to strict hygiene protocols. With an unwavering commitment to client satisfaction, our experienced staff members are always available to answer any questions, provide guidance, and ensure a seamless and enjoyable floatation experience.

At The Floatation Sanctuary, we are passionate about spreading awareness of the numerous benefits associated with floatation therapy, including pain relief, enhanced creativity, better sleep, and heightened self-awareness. By continually investing in research and staying up-to-date with the latest industry developments, we strive to offer the most effective and innovative floatation experiences to our clients. Come join us on a journey of self-discovery, relaxation, and transformation as you explore the limitless potential of floatation therapy.

The most incredible experience on every level. To walk out and be pain free for a few hours was the most amazing feeling. From the moment you walk through the doors there is a calmness and total pampering. The pre-talk is worth the time as it helps prepare you for floatation and it is not until afterward that you realise the value of the introduction. We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much for having created this beautiful space in our town.
