Rest Float Spa is home to 2 of the largest pods in the world. Each floatation pod is filled 1000 litres of waters and 500 kilos of Epsom Salts kept to skin temperature. When you enter the pod it creates an environment that is free from gravity and sensory input.

You have lots of space to manoeuvre around so you don’t feel claustrophobic and you can get in and out whenever you like. You control the opening of the pod lid, which you can have either fully open,  or fully closed and the light, which you can turn on or off at any time, to ensure your experience is right for you.

what is a float pod

why float ?

Floatation therapy is a unique relaxation treatment designed to give your mind and body the complete freedom to unwind and heal.

Also known as Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy, or REST, it works by inhibiting the sensations of gravity, light, sound and temperature to free the brain from sensory distractions and allow it to focus on resetting the body’s natural levels

the benefits

Pain & Sports Injury

Floatation therapy removes the force generated by gravity relieving pressure from various parts of the body .  The zero-gravity environment assists your body by focusing on repairing trouble areas, rather than regular bodily maintenance

Stress & Anxiety 

Due to the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system through floatation therapy, the body is flooded with endorphins and dopamine. These neurotransmitters are responsible for pain relief, mood enhancement and a decrease in anxiety response. Perfect for stress management, depression and anxiety.

Floating increases circulation throughout the whole body as well as the distribution of oxygen and nutrients. Enhanced muscle relaxation and an overall reduction in physical stress are also achieved through floatation.

Stress & Sleep

A regular floating routine can lower cortisol levels (a stress response hormone) and help you disconnect from the pressures of everyday life. The stress-relieving qualities of floating also mean it's a great meditation aid, and can significantly improve sleep quality too
