Float therapy is a practice like no other and is deeply therapeutic for the mind and body.

Floating is a practice that allows you to “switch off” all the stimulation of the world. It involves lying in 10 inches of water with 500kg of Epsom Salts dissolved in it. This allows the person to float effortlessly on the surface of the water. The water, the air, and skin are the same temperature so, when the water settles, you don’t feel it anymore.

Due to the buoyancy of the water, all the forces of gravity on the body disappear. By reducing external stimulation your nervous system stops reacting to the surroundings and has an opportunity to rejuvenate and repair the body from the inside. The effects of stress are reversed.

By flicking the switch to turn off the outside world, your body enters into the perfect environment to regenerate.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s my 1st time to float. What do you recommend?
Arrive 30 minutes early for the 1st session. Our team will look after you and set you up for a great session.
What should I wear?
We recommend you float naked for a complete non-sensory experience. However, you’re welcome to wear a swimsuit if you prefer.
Do I need to bring anything?
We provide all necessities for you including shower gel, towels, earplugs, makeup remover, hairdryers, lotion and more. You will have your own room with a private showering area, also floating nude will give you the best experience, therefore swimsuits will not be required.
How often do people float?
One float per week is the best way to generate long-lasting health results.
Why is floating every week the best?
While most people will get some benefits from floating anytime they do it, for lasting results, floating every week can help your body to recover regularly. All of the studies that show the great results of floating had the test subjects float weekly.
I don’t like small spaces. Can I float if I’m claustrophobic?
Yes, in fact, the Dreampod is very spacious and you will have full control of the environment. You can leave the Dreampod lid open if you want. Many claustrophobic clients have come in and felt comfortable in the pod. Do not hesitate to ask our experienced staff if you have any questions.
Can I float if I am pregnant?
Absolutely! Being in the tank mimics the womb, which allows you to deepen your connection with your unborn baby. You can also lay on your back without any pressure, which is definitely a great solution to release your pain. If you have any doubt, please consult your doctor before coming.
What do I do inside the pod?
Just focus on your breathing, relax your body and drift away into a state of peace. Thoughts might come up but let them go as they come about.
How many Dreampods do you have?
We have For Pods in four separate rooms. One of the Dreampod is designed for two people so you can float with your partner at the same time.
My partner and I have never floated. Is it better if we do it in the same pod?
Floating together is a great way to connect and have a experience with loved ones. However, floating in your own pod is the best “Me Time” in the city. Most people who float together come back to float separately the 2nd time.
My friends want to come too. How many people can float at the same time?
We have 4 rooms, one has a double pod. To adjust to social distancing measures, we start 2 rooms at at each time-slot. If you would like to book 3 or 4 rooms to start at same time, we can book the every first or last float session daily: Sat-Sun: 9am, 9pm Mon-Fri (Except Tue): 9:45am, 9pm Tue: 3pm, 9pm
Can I float if I have my period?
We do not recommend floating during your menstrual period due to the possibilities of period leaks. However, you can take the same precautions that you would when you go to a swimming pool.
Can I wear contact lenses?
We recommend you to remove contact lenses before entering into the tank as salt water might run into your eyes, which may cause you discomfort. We provide contact lens case and solution here in the centre.
Can I float if I have my hair dyed?
For the benefit of your hair and the water, please wait until the water runs clear when you wash your hair before coming for a float.
Will my skin prune up in the water?
No. Soaking in Epsom salt is a proven therapy. It relaxes your muscles, reduces inflammation, flushes toxins and replenishes your magnesium levels.
Is the water clean?
Yes, the water is filtered between each session. It goes through a caliber filter, a UV disinfection system and chemical disinfection system.
Where is the nearest place to park?
The nearest car park is at Universal Trade Centre on Arbuthnot Road. It’s a six minute walk to Float Co.

How we clean our float pods

How we care for our float pods and clean our water is one of the most frequently asked questions we hear at FLOAT Co.

We have a number of processes in place so that our pods are continuously and thoroughly maintained to ensure the quality of our water is always at its best.

The water within the float tank is a combination of 500kg of Epsom Salt (also known as Magnesium Sulphate) and 1000Lt of water. This highly salty or saline water environment prevents the growth of germs such as E.Coli, Pseudomonas, Legionella, Aspergillus as well as other micro-organisms. This also includes the novel corona virus that causes COVID-19.

Automatically, after each float session is completed and once the pod is no longer in use, the water is drained by a motorised pump removing sections of water at a time which then passes through a UV or Ultraviolet light and carbon filter bag which catches any particles or residue.

The water then passes through a heating coil returning the water back to the optimum temperature of 34.5 degrees. The default filter runs between float sessions and the entire saltwater solution is filtered at least 3 times.

In addition to our strict hygiene measures, all our tanks are disinfected using a combination of the UV light and hydrogen peroxide like a swimming pool or spa.

We are continually adding fresh water due to evaporation and water loss to maintain the correct salinity levels and our daily water care consists of carefully measuring the alkalinity and the pH levels in the water ensuring optimum quality.


Have you ever wondered how we clean each room before & after you float?

Bacteria and other pathogens love places that are warm and moist which is why our staff wipe down surfaces of the float tank and rooms with a Government regulated hospital grade disinfectant before and after each visit.

These include all touch surfaces such as walls and floors, doors and door handles, showers and all containers and toiletries in the room.

Other things we do after each float session is:

  • Ensure the temperature of water is at ideal body temperature
  • Ensure water salt solution is clear and not cloudy
  • Check salinity level for ideal buoyancy
  • Wipe the interior of the pod of condensation and magnesium oxide ring on the waterline
  • Checking pH and alkalinity throughout the day
  • Add hydrogen peroxide at the end of the day
  • Change the water filter on a regular basis
