Why Float at The Recovery Hub?

Floating therapy can help you reduce stress, minimise pain, stimulate creativity and make you feel happier. This popular wellness treatment was invented back in 1954 by American neuroscientist John C. Lilly who studied the effects of sensory deprivation on the brain. The basic design stayed the same: a fibreglass bathtub is filled with about 11 inches of warm, salty water. The idea is to deprive your mind and body of outside sensations and float to reach a meditative healing state.

Floating tanks have become very popular, especially among those suffering from stress, and anxiety. This technique can help with many other mental problems such as lack of focus, insomnia or depressive thoughts, but it is also efficient in battling chronic pain and injuries.  


Benefits of Float Therapy

Improves Mental Health & Wellbeing

Floating therapy at The Recovery Hub can help you improve mental health and battle anxiety by reducing your stress levels. The magnesium contained in the float pool decreases the production of the stress hormone cortisol. As a result, you will feel relaxed and happy. Additionally, detaching your senses from outside distractions in a floating pool will help you eliminate negative thoughts and elevate your mood by releasing endorphins and dopamine in the brain.

Helps with Chronic Fatigue and Insomnia

This deeply relaxing treatment has the power to improve your sleep quality and beat chronic fatigue or insomnia by stimulating melatonin production. While you are floating in the tub filled with warm water and salts, your brain will wander off into the meditative theta state associated with delta waves and rejuvenating REM phase of sleep. Many experts claim that only one hour in the floating tank equals between four and eight hours of deep sleep. The Recovery Hub offers a unique calming experience and provides everything you need to disconnect from the outside world.

Reduces Pain & Inflammations

By stimulating blood circulation and metabolic rates, floating therapy can help trigger your body’s natural self-healing processes and reduce pain, treat injuries, or heal inflammations. It has proven effective in treating conditions such as fibromyalgia, tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis, and others. Float therapy delivers amazing results when combined with other healing techniques such as massage, cryotherapy physiotherapy or chiropractic therapy.

A Boost for Creativity, Positivity & Mindfulness

Floating will help you improve focus, open your mind and boost productiveness at work. When we are immersed in everyday life, our senses are constantly exposed to stimulation. Only one hour of meditation in a floating tank will help you declutter your thoughts and reboot your brain. This relaxing therapy is considered one of the most potent mindfulness techniques that improve communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. A study published in the journal Music and Medicine shows that it improves creativity and elevates all types of artists' skills.

If you are menstruating, we will ask you to reschedule and pick another appointment. This is not due to the negative effects on your health, but purely because of hygiene reasons.

At The Recovery Hub, we take hygiene seriously! Each appointment lasts for an hour, but we allocate 90-minute time slots so that we can thoroughly clean the tanks and showers. We use high-quality pool filters that are good enough to purify 10,000 litres of water, while we keep only 1000 litres in each tank. High quantities of salt (approximately 400Kg per session) minimise the chances of bacteria survival. Additionally, we encourage our clients to shower before the session.

No! The water is very dense due to high levels of salt, which means that you will stay afloat even if you fall asleep.

No. Epsom salts in the water are rich in magnesium, allowing you to spend a longer time in the water. Your skin will feel smooth and won’t be prune-like in a regular swimming pool.
