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
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

We provide the essentials: organic body wash, shampoo & conditioner, ear plugs and towels. You are welcome to bring other personal items.

Can i float if im menstruating?
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.
How do i know the water is clean ?
Will i be in the dark ?
What is epsom salt ?
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.
