Floatation therapy is the use of an enclosed spa-like capsule or tank, known as a Dreampod™, for the purpose of deep relaxation. Floatation therapy has been shown to be beneficial for both physical and mental health. It can improve your overall sense of well-being by providing the ultimate “me” time, allowing you solace, relaxation, and indulgence.
Our Dreampod™ is large enough to fit your whole body with room to move around into different positions. The pod contains 500 kg of high-grade magnesium sulphate (Epsom salt). The salt concentration in the water provides enough buoyancy that your whole body is supported, removing the impacts of gravity. This results in you feeling weightless and allows your entire body to relax. The water is warmed to 35 degrees to match skin temperature to add to the sense of weightlessness.
To experience mental and physical healing the Dreampod™ removes external stimuli, distractions, and stress so your body’s own restorative forces are maximised. To increase the relaxation experience, the pod has an adjustable lid which you close entirely for a complete sensory deprived experience. Alternatively, the lid can be left open or ajar depending on your level of comfort. Many who say they experience claustrophobia by their second or third float can close the lid entirely reaping the full benefits of floating.

Our staff member will explain to you how the pod works, hygiene measures, pre- and post- showering requirements, and show you where to leave your things.
To start you floatation therapy close the door to the world, shower using our complimentary Saya shower products and then experience the deepest relaxation of your life. When you enter the pod, you can choose to close the lid or leave ajar. Gentle music will play while you float for the first 10 minutes, it then slowly fades allowing you unwind even further into the silence. You will begin to experience deep, restorative relaxation. Some people meditate, other get so relaxed they drift off to sleep. If you prefer the length the music plays for can be customised.
At the end of your float time, the music gently returns to awaken you. This is your signal your time has come to an end. Once you leave the pod, you again shower to remove the salt from your body and hair.
You will leave feeling deeply relaxed, centred, and rejuvenated. Many people have described floatation as addictive. Once you start you want to keep coming back for more – longing for that deep sense of relaxation again and again.
