What is a float pod ?

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.

Why float ?

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

Frequently asked questions

  • I am a little bit Claustrophobic, will I be OK in a float pod?"
    Claustrophobia” is the #1 mis-conception about floating in a pod. You CAN float with the lid open! Many people who initially express a fear of small spaces feel much better once they know they control the entire process. Their fears subside and the vast majority will go on to close the lid and turn off the light! Use the tank in the way which is most comfortable for you. If you want to stop you can do so at any time! You control the lighting and music You open and close the door whenever you want You can float with the door open! You are always in control of the environment
  • What do i need to bring ?
    We provide the essentials: organic body wash, shampoo & conditioner, moisturiser, cotton buds, ear plugs, hairdryer and towels. You are welcome to bring other personal items.
  • What do i wear ?
    Most people don’t wear anything when they float to avoid distraction from the feeling of fabric (you should remove all make-up as well) . Each room is completely private, including a private shower ~ though you can wear a swimsuit if you prefer.
  • Can i float while i am preganant ?
    Yes! This is very popular for pregnant Mum’s-to-be! Research suggests that floating is good for you and the baby. Especially in later stages of pregnancy. The buoyant environment allows you to escape many of the discomforts of pregnancy. A float session makes a great baby shower gift! Salt Float Studio even has pool noodles which allow Mum to float safely on her stomach! We recommend against floating during the first trimester, and as with most activities, we do recommend checking with your doctor first.
  • Can i float if im menstruating?
  • What if i fall asleep ?
    Falling asleep is not a problem – if anything, falling asleep will only prove that you have been in a heightened state of relaxation. At the end the session the music and light will come on and wake you peacefully. If you fall into a really deep sleep the water will start circulating 5 mins after the end of the session. Don’t just think of your ‘float session’ as being limited to the 60 minutes at Salt Float Studio; it is how you feel immediately after, how you sleep, how you feel the morning after and how you perceive your world and the life around you for the next week following your salty float experience! Can I drown?
  • How do i know the water is clean ?
    We adhere to an extremely strict set of testing protocols by the WA Health Department. The water is tested every day for hygiene, specific gravity, pH balancing, sterilisation, temperatures. Our specially designed filters are capable of screening the water down to as little as 1 micron (100th the size of a hair). The entire contents of the tank are flushed through and filtered 4 complete volumes of water between every customer (plus the 1,000 litres of water goes through 16 filters during this process!) The WA Health Department regularly visits us for water samples and to inspect the overall hygiene of our pods & pod rooms. Fresh water is added daily to top up the pods and the Salt Concentration alone will kill almost everything! Regular disinfection cycles do the rest!
  • I have recently dyed my hair or had a spray tan. Am i able to float ?
    Unfortunately hair dyes and spray-on tans can run into the salt solution. This can damage our tanks, and ruin your hair. We would suggest not floating within a week of having your hair dyed OR having a spray-on tan.
  • Will i be in the dark ?
    You are in control. You can float with or without light


The high concentration of epsom salt in the water leads to an abundance of this mineral being absorbed through our skin. Magnesium can regulate blood pressure, assist in detox and assist in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. It also serves as a powerful recovery tool for athletes with muscle soreness or sport injuries.
