Our services

At The Float Room we are all about providing the best float experience possible. This is why we offer a range of complementary therapies that you can combine with your float tank sessions or even book separately to your float. Check out our Pricing page for all our pricing information.

Float tank sessions

Our ‘first-time’ float tank sessions are a minimum of 1 hour.  Some people like to book a 1.5 hour session for their first float as it gives them a little more time to relax into the environment.

After your first float session, you may choose to opt for anything from a 45 minute float through to 3 hours.

We suggest for a 1 hour booking that you allow 1.5 hours, arrive 5-10 minutes early & allow time for showering & having a herbal tea after your session.

We have two float tanks & offer a discounted package when two friends/couple/family book both tanks.   We also offer packages for multiple floats (check out our prices page).

What does a float session involve?

While many people relax into their first float quickly, it’s not uncommon for people to take a while to relax into their first couple of floats and we recommend trying at least 3 floats to really feel if it’s of benefit to you.  Some people try only one float – maybe one session didn’t change their life or cure their pain or they didn’t have the out of body experience they were hoping for…. expecting all of that from one float is like going to your first yoga session & thinking there’s nothing to be gained by doing it again.  The more you float, your body remembers the feeling and you tend to relax more quickly & more deeply.  Every time you float is different.

What does a float tank session involve?

Before you float you will be shown through & given a thorough explanation of how to operate everything & what you need to do to make your experience more comfortable.

Firstly you will need to go to the toilet & have a shower, put earplugs in (optional) & step into the tank.  You do not need to wear anything – however if you are not comfortable with this, you can wear underwear or bathers.  The tank is in a room with a shower and toilet.  It has a door that can be locked from the inside so you are in complete privacy.

Once you step into the tank, you sit down & pull the door back & forth to see how easy it is to open & close.  Then you check the ceiling for any condensation – if there is condensation then you just wipe it down with the cloth provided to avoid it dripping in your eyes.

Once ready, you lie back & get comfortable.  There is a neck pillow available for those who may find it difficult to relax their neck.  There will generally be music or soft ocean sounds playing when you enter the tank so you can use the volume knob to your right in the tank to adjust this to a comfortable level.  Then, once you are settled in, you can turn out the light & drift away!

The music will generally play for about 10-12 minutes at the beginning.  This will fade out & you will be left in silence for the remainder of the session.  The music will gently come back on at the end to signal that your session is finished, then you take your time, wipe off as much solution as you can whilst standing in the tank, then have a shower to wash off all the salt.

You can bring your own music or sounds along after your first float session – we just recommend that they are ‘relaxing’, without any heavy bass.  We have guided meditations, subliminal calming sounds, ocean sounds, riverbank sounds & more to choose from.  You may even want to use the tank for learning & bring along a language CD or study notes on CD – it’s up to you.

Once you have quickly but thoroughly showered you come back out into our waiting area where you are welcome to relax , have a drink of water / herbal tea & enjoy the feeling before rushing back out into the world.

For those who find it ultra difficult to switch off & relax, we suggest a massage before your float to help you unwind.

Float & massage/reflexology packages

You are welcome to combine your float with a massage or reflexology session for the ultimate in relaxation.  Or if you are feeling extremely indulgent – why not book all three?

We find that for those people who find it difficult to relax, a massage prior to their float session can really help them to unwind.

On the other hand – a massage after your float is also wonderful – your senses are heightened and much of the tension has already disappeared from your muscles – either way, you certainly wont regret it!

We can accommodate up to four people at the same time – with two in the tanks while two have massages then swapping over – a fantastic experience to share with a friend/loved one.

Complementary Therapies

Massage

We are fortunate enough to have a wonderful group of beautiful massage therapists who offer a variety of different massage styles including remedial, relaxation, sports, therapeutic, cupping, thai, anma, tui na, accupressure.

Each of our therapists has their own style & are available at various times, so if you like a particular style of massage make sure you mention it when you book. Check out Our Therapists page for full details.

For some clients a massage before their float helps them to relax more easily, for others a massage after a float when their muscles are already relaxed is more appealing.

You don’t need to be having a float to book a massage at The Float Room – we have many clients who come along at different times for just a massage.

Some of our therapists have provider numbers – so you may be able to claim on private health, but be sure to mention this at the time of booking if you do need this as a few of our therapists do not have provider numbers.

 

Reflexology

Reflexology is a wonderful tool for helping improve overall health & well-being by accessing the ‘reflex’ points within your feet/hands/ears/face that relate to the various organs/systems within your body.  Through pressure & massage blockages can be released and areas can be stimulated to improve function.   Sessions are generally 1 hour and can be booked on its own or combined with a float tank session.

When you are booked in for reflexology we request that you make sure your toe nails are trimmed, feet are clean & you wear loose legged pants to enable access to your calf region.

Reflexology is an Ancient Asian & Middle Eastern healing treatment based on the principle that tension or congestion in any part of the foot mirrors tension or congestion in the corresponding part, gland or organ of the body.  Reflexologists use ‘maps’ of the feet, hands, face, ears to determine which parts of the body will be affected by applying pressure to certain areas known as ‘reflex points’.  This helps relieve tension in the corresponding body part, assisting the body to return to its normal balanced state.

Unlike traditional massage, it targets not only the main body systems that massage affects but also specific organs like the liver or kidney or specific systems such as the endocrine system.

At its most basic level, reflexology is a soothing, calming, balancing experience that is helpful for stress relief & boosting the entire body. Treatments may be general in nature, helping to restore systems for better function or more specific, addressing a clients particular conditions.  It is a non-intrusive healing technique that can be safely used when it is not convenient or possible to directly treat the affected body part.
