Each private spa room houses our advanced Dreampod float tank which is filled with only ten inches of water (approx. 700 litres) and 600kg of Epsom salt. The Epsom Salt (magnesium sulphate) provides excellent detoxification for the skin and magnesium is rich with many benefits that supports a healthy body and wellbeing.
The Dreampods are fully controlled by a central computer system that also maintains the water temperature at a constant 34.5 degrees which is the same temperature as skin surface. Without the burden of the pull of gravity, your body will be totally free from muscular stress. Gliding on the surface of the water will make you feel totally weightless, almost the same as the astronauts floating in space. The hatch of the Dreampod is shut through the float session, creating a sensory reduced environment that reduces as much external stimulus as possible such as sound, sight, noise, smell and touch and leads you into a state of neutral buoyancy. An essential state of calm and relaxation contributing to incredible and natural healing results.
The calmness and deep relaxation helps the brain reach Theta brain wave levels normally experienced between drowsiness and sleep similar to those who are experienced in deep meditation.
You will experience deep calm without going through years of meditation. Perfect also for all of us who need to escape from the daily hustle and bustle of life’s demands.
The Benefit of Floating
Theta brain wave helps sharpen intellect as well as sharpens your other senses and synchronizes both sides of the brain. Scientific research research findings have proven that synchronization of the brain enhances creative thinking and reasoning. The brain is taking a break, freeing itself from the millions of sensory inputs as well as freeing it from the task of body temperature calibration.These benefits contribute to a much more enhanced body balance.
This change is known as the Relaxation Response, the deep physical relaxation stage that gets us to be ready in dealing with bodily and emotional stress which we have to deal with everyday.
Scientists also state that the prolonged deep state of deep relaxation can slow down heart rates, decrease blood pressure and lower the consumption of oxygen. Such relaxation helps ease the ailments related to hypertension, joint inflammation, insomnia, anxiety, depression, sexual dysfunction, some types of cancer and even aging.
Who is Floating suitable for?
Floating speeds up injuries and recovery for many athletes around the world. Floating is also good for those who suffer pain and discomfort from office syndrome, those with anxiety, depression and those with trouble sleeping, as well as people with specific types of injuries. It’s recommended as a perfect relaxation tool for pregnant women and for baby. It also offers a great escape from all the sensory stimulants we take in daily, providing deep, physical and mental rest.

Beside the detoxification and skincare benefits of Epsom Salt, which is 40 times denser than normal sea water and similar to the ‘Dead Sea’ you will experience a state of weightlessness.
Once you lay in the ten inches of water filled with Epsom Salt which also provides the buoyancy, you’re at the beginning of your intense relaxation journey. This deep relaxation state is normally achieved through advanced years of relaxation and meditation practices.
