Here at The Floating Room we are excited to bring float therapy to Cornwall. This therapy is gaining popularity world wide due to its remarkable benefits.

What Is Float Therapy?

We use a float room (which is larger than a tank and much better for anyone who is worried about claustrophobia) to deliver the ultimate relaxation experience.

The science is fairly simple: The tank contains 6-12 inches of sterile water warmed to body temperature (filtered after every usage). In the water there are over 800 lbs of medical-grade Epsom salts to ensure that anyone can float. The tank is entirely light-proof (completely dark) and sound-proof. Although some users may wish to leave the door open just a little for their first few floats.

As you enter the tank and lie down, your body will be suspended in the water. You will feel entirely weightless and free. This experience brings real and immediate effects to both body and mind. It is also particularly beneficial as an aid to sleep…

Better Mind

Flotation therapy is deeply relaxing and can be used to effectively manage anxiety and stress. It is also an ideal space for visualisation. In a similar way to meditation, floating gives you a chance to explore your own mind. However unlike sitting meditation, the body is very comfortable so there are no distractions of pain in the body. Studies show that during a float the brain gives out alpha waves (which are associated with deep states of relaxation and meditation) and endorphins (our “feel good” hormones) are released. Listen to Joe Rogan talk about his float tank experience. Do the tank!

Better Sleep

A recent study by the Great British sleep survey found that a staggering 51.3% of Britons struggle to get to sleep. Insomnia is a common problem and persistent insomnia can have a significant impact on your quality of life. It can limit what you’re able to do during the day, affect your mood and lead to relationship problems with friends, family and colleagues. For many suffers of insomnia, flotation therapy has proven a very successful therapy.

Floatation therapy works so well for suffers of insomnia because it helps to mentally de-stress. This makes it easier for the brain to downshift from beta to alpha waves and then from alpha into theta waves. Theta waves, which are the gateway to sleep, allow the body to transition into the delta waves required for REM. While prolonged sleep is usually not possible in a float tank, the therapy session allows people to sleep better during the night.  Many sufferers of insomnia also find it difficult to relax their muscles at night. Floatation therapy removes the effects of gravity on the body and allows muscles to reach deep levels of relaxation. This is particularly useful for those suffering from back and neck pain.

Many sources suggest that 1 hour of floating is equivalent to 8 hours of normal sleep.

"I’ve honestly never felt as relaxed as I did here after just one visit. The feeling when you’re in the water is out of this world. Since visiting, I haven’t stopped recommending this place to anyone that will listen to me."
