What is Float Therapy?

Floating is commonly referred to as Floatation Therapy or Sensory Deprivation.

It involves lying in a pod that contains 500kg of pure magnesium sulphate which creates the buoyancy for you to float effortlessly and escape the forces of gravity. The water is heated to skin temperature so after a while the sensation of your body dissolves and you feel weightless.

The pod is both sound and light proof which gives your brain the chance to disconnect from the constant bombardment of sensory input and enhance your ability to be cognitive, mindful and introspective. The magnesium sulphate solution leaves you feeling deeply relaxed and vibrant as the tension in your body melts away and your body releases amazing energy. There is simply no other technology or environment that can stimulate these evolutionary effects.

Float therapy is a powerful tool for wellness, relaxation, pain relief and better sleep. As with any therapy, with regular use its benefits are enhanced. Float therapy offers relief and benefits which are cumulative— they build on themselves with each subsequent session. Your body and mind actually learn how to relax into the float with each session.

In other words the more you float, the better it gets. For these reasons, we encourage you to return to floating more than once, and to receive sessions on a regular basis to maintain the benefits you experience.

Clinical Float Therapy Research and Studies

The history of REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy) dates back to the 1950’s when the National Institute of Mental Health became interested in understanding how the human brain would respond to an environment without any sensory input. Float Therapy (also known as sensory deprivation) reduces all external sensory input to the nervous system, including sight, sound, smell, taste, temperature, and touch.

There have been a number of publications that have explored the potential therapeutic benefits of floating. The most consistent observation to date has been significant reductions in pain and stress levels and increases in relaxation as measured before and after the float. Float Therapy has also been reported to decrease blood pressure, heart rate and cortisol levels. Current studies through 2020 are investigating the long-term impact of floating in patients with anxiety disorders, anorexia nervosa, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and insomnia.

See below for studies dating back to the 1960s. As more research is published, we’ll continue to update this library of clinical float studies and research:
