The water, about 25cm deep, is saturated with 500kg of Epsom salt and is at body temperature. This creates an environment similar to that of the Dead Sea, letting you float effortlessly and enjoy a feeling of weightlessness! Once you are settled, you will feel you are floating in the air.
The pod looks like a large, enclosed bathtub. They are usually built out of fiberglass and are designed to block out all external stimuli – sight, sound, touch and gravity.
The pool is a floating room, in which one or two persons can float in an open space. One can either choose a sensory deprivation environment, or light-, sound- and aroma- therapy.
The floatation pod was created by neuroscientist Dr. John C. Lilly 60 years ago while he was doing research on brain waves and altered states of consciousness.
Flotation therapy has been academically studied in the USA and in Sweden with published results showing reduction of both pain and stress. At the moment there have been 90+ studies done on the benefits of floating.
Deep relaxation brings stress relief, eliminates fatigue and jet lag, accelerates body recovery, improves sleep, alleviates both physical and mental stress. Floating therapy brings more clarity and positiveness in your daily life.

Overworked people from all streams of life, sleep-deprived parents and pregnant women, corporate top performers, creative professionals and students taking exams, homemakers and eternal youth seekers, athletes and casual sports persons are all in quest of true relaxation, rapid recovery, higher energy levels, increased memory and concentration.
Have you already experienced a zero gravity environment? Complete silence? Pure stillness?
