Floatation – Emersion Floatation Spa

Why Float?

Physical

People float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and much more.

Floating naturally increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts for days afterwards.

Without the need to fight gravity or take-in external information, you’ll likely experience the most complete relaxation you’ve ever felt.

Spiritual

Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It’s the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound.

Float tanks can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking and sleeping’ state.

After years of practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Float tanks get you there effortlessly.

Learning

People have cut strokes off their golf game,developed complex scientific theories, and drafted whole portions of books while floating.

With nothing to distract you, your level of concentration and knowledge absorption is astonishing.

Basics

Floating is about everything that you won’t be doing.

You won’t be fighting gravity.
Over 500kgs of epsom salt in the water takes care of
that while you lie on your back.
The water is kept at 36.5 degrees. This is skin-receptor
neutral, which means you lose track of where your
body ends and where the water begins.
Your ears stay just below the water, and the tanks
are insulated against sound. Noise from the outside
doesn’t reach you.
After you shut the door and turn off the light, you float in total darkness.
For an hour the outside world is gone, and amazing things happen.
It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking information, your body has a lot of extra resources at it’s disposal.
Your mind is free to mull over without distraction, your brain pumps out dopamine and endorphins, and your body gets to rest, de-stress, and heal.

FAQ

Do I need to bring anything?

Just yourself. Towels, earplugs, everything else you need is provided.

What if I’m claustrophobic?

People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems when floating. You’re always in control of your environment.

Can I drown if I fall asleep?

Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat.

Can I float if I’m pregnant?

Yes. It is reported that it relieves the weight and pressure of the baby, enabling the mother to feel completely relaxed. Consult your doctor if you want to float in your first trimester.

Can I float if I have dyed hair?

Only if it’s not running

How are the tanks kept clean?

We utilise two very powerful natural sterilizers, Ozone and Ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which are extremely effective in killing all microorganisms. The highly sterile salt water is also fully filtered 24 hours a day through a 1 micron filter (1/100th of a human hair).

Is it like Altered States (the movie)?

Yes, but you’re not submerged in water, you don’t eat ritualistic mushrooms, and only a small percentage of floaters turn into proto-human monkeys.

Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely. You can’t float together in the same tank, but you can book to float at the same time.

Is this new-agey mumbo jumbo?

Floating has been around for over 50 years, and has plenty of published research to back it up.
