It’s not just great for relaxation, it’s great for some medical conditions too. Conditions such as Fibromyalgia, which causes widespread pain and extreme fatigue throughout the body. Arthritis sufferers (The condition that causes pain and swelling inflammation in the joints) can also benefit.

They are absorbed by the skin reducing inflammation around the joints.
If you are pregnant some women report a reduction of movements inside the womb after a float session. This is due to a phenomenon called the “mirror effect”. The baby feels safe and secure inside the womb; therefore, the mother shares a similar experience in the warm isolation tank. Women also report a stronger connection with their baby during and after a session.
PTSD is an anxiety disorder caused by stressful, frightening, or distressing events. It is most diagnosed in members of the armed forces, who suffer traumatic events. Due to the peaceful and relaxing pods many clients have stated they felt a dramatic drop in the stress and anxiety levels after the session.

What to expect
Floatation therapy is proven to be one of the main ways to relax and relives any worries and additional anxieties. By escaping the outside world and having 1 hour of complete calm you will find yourself feeling both energised and relaxed
Clear your Mind.
With the reduction in our primary senses such as touch, sound and sight, our frontal lobe in the brain (the area responsible for planning and self-conscious awareness) allows us to meditate more than ever before and reach a deeper level of mindfulness.
Flotation therapy helps to reduce the “workload” of the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which is responsible for planning and execution of behaviours as speech and logical reasoning, by doing so it allows our mind boy to reach ultimate calmness and relaxation
Meditation & Creativity
The floatation tanks cause’s a person’s brain waves to change from a ‘beta’ state (wide awake and alert) to ‘alpha’ and finally into ‘theta’ state.
The float tank provides a reliable means to achieve & sustain this beneficial state without the years of practice that is normally required by advanced meditators. Mark suggests the hour long float session will create the ideal environment for anyone looking to enjoy a deep meditative state.
Depression & Stress
Stress can often suppress the immune system, increasing the risk of infections; slows down the metabolism & restricts the body of vital nutrients.
Resulting in exhaustion and depleted levels of vitamins and minerals, whilst our energy continues to plummet our body’s ability to produce Adrenaline decreases too. Floatation therapy helps prevent all these issues, reducing the Cortisol levels (our natural “fight or flight” mode) relieving the body & mind of negative thoughts and feelings by releasing endorphins.
Jetlag & Insomnia
Insomnia is a sleep disorder, resulting in individuals having difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep as long as desired. It is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood.
Floatation therapy is quickly becoming a popular technique for minimizing the effects of both this and jet lag.
