Here is what you need to know:
Float session is the easiest pastime ever. All you need is to show up at Float Culture, 12 Water Street, Grafton 10 minutes before your session. Our friendly staff will take you through a short and easy briefing on how to use our floatation pods.
All our floatation rooms designed to maximise privacy of your experience (no need for a swimsuit). Each room has a shower, a toilet and a hair dryer. You will be provided with a big, fluffy, fresh towel, earplugs and a natural hair/body/skin range to complement rejuvenating effects of Epsom Salts after the session.
Before you take your first float, there are several things for you to consider.
In a dark, quiet environment, you will be floating in very buoyant water, heated to skin temperature. You will have the feeling of floating weightlessly in space.
Your experience will depend on your state of mind and your expectations.
Reactions have ranged from euphoria to boredom; the most common response is deep relaxation. Knowing what to expect physically will make your experience a truly satisfying one.
Generally much of the first float is spent getting used to this new environment. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the surroundings right away.
You will be aware initially of your breathing and your heartbeat. This is a good sign! In the absence of external stimulation, this awareness will actually help you to relax.
During the relaxation process, you may be aware of the areas of your body that hold more tension and resist relaxation. Old injuries are often cushioned by the body’s tightening of the surrounding muscles.
Often the back of the neck is an area of some special tension. Let your head fall back a little and your neck will relax. Don’t worry about your head. It will not sink. You may want to experiment with different arm positions to help you relax. There are several – at your sides, straight up over your head, or behind your neck.

The Isomind Programme has the potential to help change your life for the better- but you need to do the work. For me, the idea of finding time to float twice a week sounded incredible- and impossible. Time-wise, I was just scraping by… it felt like all of my time was already reserved for dealing […]Read more
It’s such a strange thing to be shut into a room with the lights off, no sound, no smell, no taste, no light and very little to even touch. Your body suspended in zero gravity due to a bath of water so concentrated even the toughest ocean swimmer wouldn’t want it in their eyes. Luckily […]Read more
To most people, the idea of floating in a tank at Float Culture connotes feelings of calm, serene silence, quiet introspection and the occasional moment of epiphany. The aesthetic of the whole experience is undeniably flavored by Zen influence; it seems like the sort of place you’d go if you had to figure out the […]Read more
