About Us

The Float Room was started in 2009 by Airlie & Anthony Byrnes, who had floated several times with Airlies brother interstate & wanted somewhere to float in Adelaide.  And so the adventure of The Float Room began….

  waveWho are we?

The Float Room started as a small home-based float tank & massage business in 2009 as a way to provide somewhere to float in Adelaide as well as create a small business for Airlie to manage as an escape from the ‘rat-race’.

We, Trudi & Stu, are the third owners here at The Float Room and have been running things since 2017.  We see ourselves as the custodians of the Water & both work full time, there is a lot of work behind the scenes that you do not see …………!  We are passionate about floating and love seeing others experience the wide array of benefits that can be achieved.  We love what we do & consider ourselves fortunate to have such a wonderful business that provides the opportunity to help people relax, de-stress & become the best possible version of themselves.

Apart from getting to float regularly ourselves, our favourite part of running a float centre is the fantastic people we get to meet along the way.  The diversity of our customers is amazing and we are so grateful to all of them for their ongoing support. We consider ourselves very lucky to have such a great bunch clientele here at The Float Room, you are all our ‘Float Family’.

 We LOVE floating & consider it an important part of our life.  We understand the importance of helping customers feel at ease as well as maintaining high levels of hygiene & cleanliness, we love to have a chat with you about your float experience.

waveOur philosophy

We think floating / sensory deprivation/ float therapy is a wonderful tool that provides such an amazing array of possible benefits, particularly for those who do it regularly.  The float tank provides the perfect environment for helping the body & mind to heal itself, to explore your conscious & subconscious, to let go of the crazy busyness of our world for a while & simply ‘be’.

In this crazy corporate world we live in – full of franchises and massive companies – we think small is beautiful and that personalised service is rare but important.  We don’t want to be biggest or the cheapest.  Instead we want to develop a reputation as the best float centre in Adelaide – maybe even Australia!  We want to build our reputation as providing great service from awesome facilities at a fair price.

Our aim is to help facilitate wonderful float experiences for all our clients, whether it be a one-off session or someone who floats twice a week, whether you are coming for pain relief, sports recovery, stress management or just because Joe Rogan has told you all about it – we value each & every client & strive to ensure they all feel welcome & comfortable.

We like to take the time to talk with our clients, answer questions & show them through how everything works.  This is also why we encourage you to call us to make your first booking.  We can find out why you’re coming & make sure that the service you are booking is right for you.

We like to support other small businesses and our local community.  That is why we use Australian made (in fact, Adelaide made!!) float tanks.

Why float with us?

We have been operating float tanks in Adelaide for over 11 years, so we like to think we offer the best float tanks in Adelaide.   After 11 years we know how to make sure all our clients have the best possible experience.

Our facilities have been purpose built, our shop & tank room layouts ensure customer comfort & minimised sound transference.

We take tank hygiene extremely seriously & invest a lot of time/effort to ensure our tanks & facilities are as clean as possible.  Check out our facilities to find our more about how we maintain our tanks.

We provide toilets & showers within each tank room.  We think having a toilet in each room is VITAL – firstly for your own convenience & comfort (imagine having to walk down a hallway mid-way through your float!) but also to reduce the likelihood of anyone deciding to pee in the tank or in the shower.

Our focus is on floating – it’s what we do & what we are all about. 

We consider each client to be as important as another & make sure we take the time to show you through how everything works & discuss how we may need to tailor your experience, e.g. if you feel the cold we can warm the room up for you, if you’d prefer music the whole time or to listen to something specific.

With only two tanks & by booking our sessions with plenty of time in between we can take the time to ensure your float is just right & un-rushed.
