Hear it from our happy members!
“Floating, Floatation tanks/pods, Floatation Therapy, Isolation tank or Sensory Deprivation” all refer to the practice of spending time in a tank, room or pod that is enclosed, sound proof, light proof, filled with 40 cm of water mixed in with 600kg of Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate). The water and air temperatures are matched to that of a person’s skin temperature. The buoyancy of the Water and Epsom salt solution allows the user to easily float in the water, removing any sensation of gravity. Our state of the art centre in Melbourne offers three float tanks which remove all visual, audible and physical stimulation to create experience that is not replicated anywhere else.
By eliminating all outside distractions Elevation Floatation allows the user to experience a state where they can be free from distractions and therefore focus on only the mind. Decreased stimulation allows for users to achieve states of deep relaxation.

What is Flotation relaxation and why are we so obsessed with trying to achieve it? Are relaxation centers, floatation studios and well-being spaces the new escape for the ultimate relaxation experience? We take a look at what people are really doing to unwind and relax after a long workweek.
We look at Floatation therapy (FT) first, FT tanks can be used for many different purposes; helping target pain, anxiety and stress throughout the body is one of its popular methods of use. Study groups have shown a significant decrease in its patient’s experience of pain, stress and anxiety over the researched months. The sensory deprivation environment created in a floatation tank has proven to help people who have PTSD, insomnia, fear spells, addictions and melancholy symptoms as it serves as a great vehicle for meditation and reflection. The reduction in external stimuli has also shown users to observe, enhancement in learning skills and wave synchronicity between brain hemispheres.
Test clients displayed a noticeable diminish in their problem areas/issues after just a few session in the tanks, Making time to relax is just as important as actually relaxing.
