I would like to welcome you to our Floatbar, where I can answer all your questions about floating.

Weightless & effective relaxing in salt water

WHAT IS FLOATING?

Floating involves reclining in a floating, Epsom salt-infused solution in a sensory isolation tank. The density of the salt water allows effortless floating, relieving physical stress. Absence of external stimuli promotes deep relaxation, promoting mental clarity and relaxation, making it a holistic therapy for stress, pain and relaxation.

WHAT IS MAGNESIUM

 

We use magnesium sulphate in our float baths. 1 float bath contains more than 550 kilos of magnesium sulphate with 700 liters of water, so gravity is canceled out. The salt is a mineral compound of magnesium and sulphates, both minerals are absorbed through your skin. When you float in the water for an hour, you will notice that no moisture is extracted from your skin and you will not get wrinkled hands.
