Floatation therapy takes place in a float tank filled with water and highly concentrated Epsom salts. This salt solution is heated to mirror your body temperature.
As if floating in the Dead Sea, the float tank creates a near-zero gravity state allowing people of any body shape or size to float effortlessly.
The enclosed pod creates an external sensory deprivation with nothing to see, hear, taste, smell or touch. Without stimulation, it’s effortless to slip into a meditative state and effectively revitalise your mind and body through deep relaxation and stress relief.
What Are Floatation Therapy Benefits?
Floatation therapy is an entirely surreal experience to offer physical pain relief and a deep state of meditation simultaneously, one that improves overall wellbeing. Float therapy is used for its benefits by professional athletes, pregnant women, those with stress or anxiety, those wanting to stimulate their creativity or just people who simply want to discover complete relaxation.
Magnesium is a powerful tool for recovery, and your body is immersed in a float tank of Epsom salt solution, so the mineral is rapidly absorbed through the skin to relieve tired and sore muscles. Eliminating gravity allows muscles and joints an optimal healing opportunity, and lactic acid, which creates stiffness, is released from the muscles quicker.
How Does A Sydney Float Tank Work?
Epsom salt is used inside float tanks to promote buoyancy. It also helps muscles relax and stops the skin from wrinkling in the warm water. 500 kilograms of Epsom salt is poured into the float tank which is filled with 600 litres of water. The tank is heated to 34.5°C.
Having the water at the same temperature as the body gives you the feeling of not being able to tell where your body ends and where the water begins, which leads to a sensation of complete engulfment and deeper relaxation.
Zero gravity relaxation means no concept of up or down, time, or space. The floating experience releases the body’s tension and stimulates the mind, resulting in a unique, fully meditative, relaxed state.
