Designed with relaxation in mind

If you're yet to discover floatation therapy, you're in for a treat! This incredible experience has said to have many health benefits, both for your mind and your body, but how does it work? 


Float Therapy has two i-sopods, brought to you from the creators of the first ever float pod and still the leading choice for many businesses across the globe. Each pod is filled with half a tonne of the highest quality Epsom salts combined with water, allowing you to float effortlessly and giving you the sensation of pure weightlessness. The lid is then closed, and the lights turned out, to create your very own isolated space, allowing your senses to turn off and your body and mind to calm.

Float tank

The specs: 

  • The biggest pod available, measuring 8.5 ft by 5.5 ft, so even the tallest user can stretch out comfortably

  • The safest on the market - the only pod that doesn't heat the water when you're inside or emit electro-magnetic energy into the water 

  • The only pod with a manual opening and closing lid, not mechanised, to give you full control - the pod is never locked and can be easily pushed open

  • A call button is located inside, should you need assistance

  • Full light control, allowing you to choose the right setting for you

FAQs about our floatation pods:

  • Can I float if I have my period?
    We do not recommend floating during your menstrual period due to the possibilities of period leaks. However, you can take the same precautions that you would when you go to a swimming pool.
  • Do I need to bring anything?
    We provide all necessities for you including shower gel, towels, earplugs, makeup remover, hairdryers, lotion and more. You will have your own room with a private showering area, also floating nude will give you the best experience, therefore swimsuits will not be required.
  • Can I float if I am pregnant?
    Absolutely! Being in the tank mimics the womb, which allows you to deepen your connection with your unborn baby. You can also lay on your back without any pressure, which is definitely a great solution to release your pain. If you have any doubt, please consult your doctor before coming.
  • Can I wear contact lenses?
    We recommend you to remove contact lenses before entering into the tank as salt water might run into your eyes, which may cause you discomfort. We provide contact lens case and solution here in the centre.
  • Can I float if I have my hair dyed or a new tattoo?
    For the benefit of your hair and the water, please wait until the water runs clear when you wash your hair before coming for a float. Floating and fresh tattoos don’t mix. The time you would need to wait depends on the tattoo (check with your tattoo artist), but we would recommend waiting 4-6 weeks before floating after getting a tattoo.
  • Can I drink alcohol or take drugs and float?
    We have a no-drugs or alcohol policy. If you seem to be under the influence of alcohol or any other drug, you won’t be allowed to float that day. This is for your own safety.
  • I just shaved prior to floating. Can I float?
    We recommend saving your shave for a non-float day, as the salty water can sting freshly-shaven areas. However, if you do shave on the day, you can cover up wherever you’ve shaved with the Vaseline we provide to reduce irritation and stinging.
  • What if I can't ‘switch off’ whilst floating?
    Often, our minds are overactive, so it can be difficult to ‘switch off’ anywhere - inside the pod included! This is totally normal, especially for people floating for the first time. Remember, it gets easier and more natural to switch off the more you float, and floating will be all the more beneficial for you if you tend to have trouble ‘switching off’. Each float is different, and we recommend that you embrace whatever experience you have - just observing the thoughts you have with detached interest.
  • Can I wear a head cap to keep my hair dry?
    Swimming caps or head caps don’t keep the water from coming into contact with your hair completely - so you will probably still need to wash it post-float to get the salt out. Wearing something on your head can also compromise the experience of a lack of sensation, so we recommend floating without one on if you can. But it’s entirely up to you!
  • What happens if I get salt in my eye?
    If you get the water in your eye, it will sting. But don’t worry - there’s a spray bottle filled with fresh water inside each pod. Simply spray this into your eyes and the stinging will stop.
  • Will the salt dry out or damage my hair?
    As long as you wash and condition your hair after each float, the magnesium in the Epsom salt could work to improve the condition of your hair and scalp, and not damage it.
  • Is there any risk of drowning?
    Don’t worry, there’s no way you can drown - even if you tried! The high buoyancy of the water makes it impossible for you to sink beneath the surface.
  • Can I float with low or high blood pressure?
    In some cases, floating can help to reduce high blood pressure however, please check with your doctor about floating if you suffer from low or high blood pressure.
  • Do I need to tell you about any health conditions?
    Yes, please let us know about any health conditions. Most importantly, you should check with your doctor before floating.
