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.

“When one or more senses are restricted, the sensitivity of the others senses is expanded.” – The Book of Floating by Michael Hutchison The floatation tank makes use of this sensory deprivation effect to bring about a gentle, pleasant, controllable, and temporary shift in consciousness in anyone who floats. This shift in consciousness is healthy, […]Read more
Folks at Waikato University recently took a closer look at Float Tanks & how they might improve your athletic performance + help muscle recovery (Flotation-restricted environmental stimulation therapy improves sleep and performance recovery in athletes). In this small study, they compared floating to passive recovery. They found Floating had a positive impact on: muscle recovery […]Read more
It’s not easy being a mum. I know this because I have one, and I’ve seen up close the effects of motherhood. She has a few more wrinkles than she used to, and perhaps even a grey hair or two. She has considerably less money than she might have otherwise, and there’s a lot of […]Read more
Just this week I had my very first experience in a sensory deprivation tank. Here is why I decided to surrender myself to complete darkness, silence. I have noticed within the past couple of years, I’ve been living in a rather addictive behaviour of needing to be productive and active. My daily routine was composed […]Read more
