What Is Floating?

Floatation therapy is a simple way to achieve profound relaxation, meditation and wellness.

Also known as floating, sensory deprivation or R.E.S.T (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) Floating involves lying effortlessly on your back in a specially designed floatation tank. You float in ten inches of water with over 1000lb of Epsom salt dissolved into it. The environment is controlled, so the water and air in the tank are heated to skin temperature (35.5°C) to be exact. At Float Planet our tanks are amongst the best in the world, specifically designed to block out all external distractions including sight, sound, tactile sensations and gravity. This environment brings long-lasting and transformational experiences. Floating has become increasingly popular, as more people have learnt about floatation therapy’s remarkable benefits. Your first float might feel like magic; however floatation therapy is the result of thirty years of mainstream scientific research in human performance and wellness.

Best of all, the effects of floatation are cumulative – the more you float, the better it is for your mind, body and health.
