Floating creates an environment so buoyant that you float naturally and experience an incredible feeling of weightlessness and Gravity free.
It is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water and those that aren’t, in effect “tricking” the brain into believing that you are floating freely in mid-air.
This relaxation is heightened by the full body absorption of magnesium from the water that draws out the release of muscle tension – perfect for recovery from physical strain and fatigue.
Floating involves lying in the float tank that contains a highly concentrated Epsom salt solution (325kg of magnesium sulphate) which creates the buoyancy for you to float effortlessly.
What is a float tank like?
Our Apollo float tank is 2.3m long, 1.4m wide and 1.4 in height. The salt solution is heated to 34-35degrees, the same as skin temperature.
The interior of the tank is dark blue, and the exterior is white to reflect a nice warm glow from the salt light.
There is no more than 30cm of water inside the tank, so it’s impossible to flip yourself, with the Apollo float tank there is a large sliding door, which can be left open during your float and you can exit the tank at any time. There is also lights and audio that can be played during your float session.
