Float Therapy

Floatation Therapy is a unique experience that involves floating effortlessly in a tank of skin temperature water that contains a high concentration of Epsom salts. The tank and room are designed to eliminate all external stimuli, including light, sound, touch and impacts of gravity, creating a completely relaxed and weightless environment. This therapy has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its numerous benefits for both the body and mind.

One of the main benefits of floating is its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. The lack of sensory input allows the body to enter a deep state of relaxation, lowering cortisol levels and promoting the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. This can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression, improve sleep quality, and enhance overall well-being.

Floating can also aid in the relief of physical pain, such as chronic back pain or muscle tension, due to the buoyancy of the saltwater reducing pressure on the body. Research has shown that within the first 20 minutes that Diastolic Blood pressure can be reduced by up to 20%.

Floating can be an incredibly rejuvenating and transformative experience for those seeking a natural and effective way to reduce stress, anxiety, alleviate pain, and improve their overall health and wellness.

Float Systems

The Floatation Sanctuary uses FloatSpa Premium Float systems, which are among the most advanced and hygienic float systems in the world.
These systems, unique in New Zealand to The Floatation Sanctuary, provide excellent hygiene via a complex 4+1 step water cleaning filtration system. Before and after every client session, the float tank or float room is completely emptied to an external water reservoir tank ensuring every drop of the water being processed at least twice between every session. When not in use, the FloatSpa tank automatically circulates and cleans the water every 2 hours. The water regeneration process includes chemical, physical, and mechanical cleaning methods for a perfect result. Even the inside of the pod or pool is cleaned and sanitized after every client, so each person enjoys a clean and safe environment for a relaxing experience.(video courtesy FloatSpa Kft)
