Floatation involves lying in a super-saturated Epsom-salt solution about 30cm deep. The salt-water solution is heated to skin temperature 35.5C Once you are settled, it is almost impossible to tell which parts of your body are in the water and which aren’t. The high density of our saline solution will make you feel completely weightless, letting every single muscle in your body fully relax.
The float pods are specifically designed to block out all external distractions, such as sights, sounds, tactile sensations and gravity.
The sudden de-stimulation of large areas of the nervous system, which occurs during a float session, triggers a spontaneous chain-reaction throughout the body to remove stress and leave you feeling wonderful – your whole body chemistry changes.
At Auckland's floatation centre you will experience total sensory deprivation; a liberating weightlessness that delivers deep mental relaxation, complete release from stress and a sense of wellbeing unlike anything you ever dreamed possible.
Auckland Float Culture centre is a floatation facility for men and women of all ages and all walks of life – including students, tradesmen, professionals, creatives and athletes – where floating in state-of-the-art Epsom Salt water pods (as in the Dead Sea) will help you rediscover your health, vigour and enthusiasm in complete peace and privacy.
