Restless nights, fever dreams and unsatisfactory dozes. We all know what it feels like to get a bad night’s rest, some of us too well. Some of us way too well, for way way way too many nights in a row. A lack of sleep builds up. It wears on your body, it wears on your mind and it wears on your relationships. As one of the fundamental necessities of human existence, there is not an area in which bad sleep doesn’t create negative effects.
Have you tried everything? Implementing a better habit or activity for a few days only to be totally disappointed by the results? Perhaps you dropped this change and went back into old patterns, kicking yourself for not having the will-power to change, or telling yourself it’s not possible. I’m here to tell you it is possible and help you realise that will-power has very little to do with it.
Modern cognitive behavioural therapy treatments for sleep consist mainly of a personalised coaching framework to “make it absolutely clear to the brain when it’s time for sleep” by changing your habits and routines. The Better Sleep Program combines the very same approach with the deeply calming, de-stressing, pain-reducing, hormone-balancing effects of floatation.
So what is flotation?
Floatation involves lying in a super-saturated Epsom salt solution about 30cm deep. The saltwater 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. Flotation is one of the most effective tools available for reducing stress, alleviating physical discomfort and promoting overall wellbeing.
What’s in the program?
The Better Sleep Program is 2 weeks long, containing:
Throughout the course of the program, you can expect to
“Habits? Routines? This sounds hard and boring!”, you may be thinking. But there’s no need to worry. The better sleep program is designed to easily integrate into your already busy lifestyle, only requiring 20-30 minutes a day as you wind down before bed. Of course, all of this is rewarded by 4 blissfully sweet, restfully quiet sessions in the sensory deprivation tank. Our aim is not to give you tasks to do but to help you create more fruitful ways to be, changes you already knew about and wanted to implement, but until now didn’t have a strong enough reason why.
Think about why you want better sleep. Perhaps to improve your mental clarity, increase connection with others, improve professional performance or to feel physically great again. Think about how long you’ve been wanting these changes, how ready you are to create a new reality for yourself.

Walking around the world at large, there is a constant influx of stimuli. Sights, sounds and colour – we are constantly barraged by the multifarious, often beautiful and sometimes distressing multitudes of sensory data. Sometimes, when walking around either without having had a chance to close your eyes, or after having been shut off for […]Read more
In my first float I had no idea what to expect. I was a little apprehensive yet curious. As I got settled in the tank I quickly became confronted by fear. It arrived in the form of the darkness and unfamiliarity of the tank itself, but soon I realised that it was inside of me, […]Read more
They say that sleep is important. I couldn’t agree more. As a lifelong insomniac, I know how difficult it can be to function on meager moments of sleep per night, for many nights in a row. I would love to change this, but after years of trying to develop healthy sleeping habits, In search of sleep, I’ve […]Read more
Down a dusty side street in Central Auckland lies Float Culture, a sensory deprivation centre dedicated to physical relaxation and mid expansion. Alone in the dark I left my body. It was a directionless exit. More of an expansion in all directions. Perhaps influenced by having just read a copy of the Bhagavad Gita(forced upon […]Read more
