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.
At Auckland’s floatation tank centre we believe in creating lasting and meaningful change in the lives of our clients. Scientific evidence suggests that Floatation therapy has an accumulative effect, so just as a massage therapist may work on a muscle for a few sessions to relieve tension and free you up to move better, repeated flotation sessions do the same for your mental processes. Building mentally clarity, strength in the face of stress, restfulness in sleep and physical relaxation are all effects that can be developed in the float pod.
