BENEFITS OF FLOATING

Float therapy offers a range of benefits for a broad range of ailments and conditions. From improved relaxation to faster recovery from exercise and injury. Float clients around the world report reduced symptoms of a long list of common complaints including:

  • Pain Management: The buoyancy created by the dense salt solution effectively removes the effects of gravity and creates an experience of near total weightlessness which relieves pressure on areas of the body, providing relief from pain and inflammation.
  • Brain Enhancement: floating allow the brain to achieve mental stillness from the lack of stimulation inside the pod.
  • Reduce Stress and Anxiety: Day to day life means our sympathetic nervous systems are often overworked creating high cortisol levels, which create stress in the mind and body. Flotation therapy activates the Parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest and recovery, and floods the body with endorphins and dopamine, which are responsible for pain relief, stress management, mood enhancement, and a decrease in depression and anxiety.
  • Muscle Recovery: Magnesium is used widely to treat aching muscles, promote relaxation, reduce tension and aid recovery from injuries and strain.
  • Can also assist with insomnia, migraines, hypertension.

BEFORE YOUR SESSION

  • On the morning of your float, don’t shave or apply any perfume.
  • Don’t load up on caffeine prior to your float, your morning coffee is fine, just don’t overdo it.
  • Hair dye can run so we ask that you don’t dye your hair in the days prior to your float.
  • Avoid having a spray tan in the 48 hours prior to your float.
  • Do not float with fresh tattoos or piercings.
  • Anyone under the influence of Drugs and alcohol is strictly prohibited from floating.

So lay back, relax and prepare for  your mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation possible.

FAQ’s

Each Dreampod holds up to 1000 liters of water heated to a steady 35.5 degrees celsius and imbued with the power of up to 500kg of magnesium sulfate (Epsom salts).

We provide everything that you need for your floating experience though you may wish to bring a change of clothing for after your session. You may also like to bring a hair brush and personal toiletries. The Haven offers complimentary shower and change facilities including body wash, shampoo and conditioner.

Dreampods are clothing optional to allow for a distraction-free experience. Of course if you would prefer to wear bathers you are most welcome, rest assured however you will have absolute privacy throughout your experience.

No matter how long you float, your skin will not wrinkle like it might in regular water. The salt is continually absorbed by the skin allowing it to remain smooth and supple.

Our Dreampods have cutting edge inbuilt UV filtration systems that cycle after every session. This technology combined with a low level of food grade hydrogen peroxide, and high salt content of the water means  bacteria simply cannot survive in the tank environment. In addition, the surfaces within our Dreampods are fully sterilized with COVID approved cleaning products after every session.

It’s perfectly safe to fall asleep during your float and many people do. You may find you achieve a deeper sleep than you would than in your own bed.

Many pregnant women love to float and report that the sense of weightlessness is particularly pleasant during pregnancy. Please note we don’t recommend floating after 36 weeks however to avoid any unexpected outcomes.

For hygiene reasons we ask anyone who is menstruating to take additional precautions when floating. Please use appropriate sanitary products (tampons) to ensure no leakage occurs during your float session as you would do in a pool or spa. Please note, if you generally experience raised body temperature or stomach cramps you may wish to reschedule your appointment to a time when you will feel more comfortable.

While cocooned away from the stress of the world the brain undergoes a gentle shift from its waking beta-wave state to generating deep alpha, theta or even delta waves. That’s the same state-of-mind Buddhist monks strive to reach through years of meditation training.

In this state your mind can also release increased amounts of endorphins and dopamine, the natural feel-good neurotransmitters which help to relieve pain and enhance moods.

These effects combine with the natural sedative power of magnesium to ease tired and stressed muscles and joints to leave your body and mind in a state of unique calm and tranquility.

The ultra-buoyant water of the Haven’s Dreampods means everyone can float with ease. Simply lay back and relax as our remarkable magnesium-sulphate solution fully supports your body with no effort required.  The water inside each of the Haven’s Dreampods is rich with magnesium sulfate, sometimes known as Epsom Salt. The high volume of this naturally occurring mineral changes the chemical structure of the water creating a remarkably buoyant solution able to comfortably support our bodies and bring us closer to weightlessness than ever before.

You don’t need to be able to swim to enjoy the Haven’s Dreampods. Each pod contains 30cm of mineral-rich, magnesium infused water, the perfect volume to allow visitors to sit comfortably on the floor of the pod and to fully support them when they lay back to experience weightlessness.

You are fully in control of your Dreampod experience. While many clients enjoy the deep sensory deprivation of darkness, others prefer to keep the lights on and/or the roof open.

Your comfort is our top priority, that’s why you have full control of your float session at every step. Some clients prefer to float with the Dreampod open for the entire session, others prefer to close the pod after they have had time to adjust to their new surroundings. There’s no wrong way to enjoy the experience, how you float is entirely up to you. If you have any concerns please speak to our friendly staff for more information.
