What is floating?

Floatation therapy is the practice of lying back in one of our world-leading floatation tanks and experiencing a blissful, healing state.

How floating works

The water in each pod contains half a tonne of Epsom salt, allowing you to float effortlessly. It matches the temperature of your skin and the air, giving you the feeling of complete weightlessness. It’s usually pitch black and silent in the pod too, unless you wish to have relaxing music, or the light on.

Free from sensory input, the muscular-skeletal system and sympathetic nervous system wind down into a state of deep relaxation and serenity, in which your body and mind can heal and replenish – resulting in many benefits, like reduced stress and better sleep.

A float lasts for 1 hour, with 10 minutes of ambient music at the beginning to help you relax – or longer if you request it. You have full control of opening and closing the pod, and of the light inside it. Music starts again to signal 5 minutes before the end of your float.

At The Joy of Floating this all happens in your own private room, equipped with a shower, complimentary toiletries and a towel.
