The first float tank was invented by John C. Lilly in 1954. A float tank is an enclosed tub filled with 500kg of Epsom salt dissolved in 30cm of water. This abundance of salt creates a buoyant environment which allows you to float effortlessly on top of the water. The water and air are heated to the same temperature as the surface of your skin, creating an indistinguishable boundary between the two. After settling in, you will begin to feel weightless and forget about any physical tensions. The tank lid can remain open or be closed to create a light and soundproof setting, immersing yourself into the complete sensory deprivation experience.
Our Float Tanks
At Float Well, we have chosen to install floatation pods as we personally love the cocoon-like design and warm/futuristic ambiance they provide when laying inside. Float pods have various shapes and sizes, as well as names – often call float tanks, sensory deprivation tanks, salt pods, float pods and/or float rooms. We offer two different styles: Dreampod V2 and Dreampod Max.
Our flagship V2 pods measure 2.25m long by 1.45m wide and live in Crown and Third Eye rooms. These pods have deeper water (31cm) offer some people a little bit more warmth or cosiness. So if you’d like to jump in a V2, book out the odd hour appointments (11am, 1pm, 3pm, etc).
Our Dreampod Max measures 2.34m long by 1.62m wide. These pods live in our Heart and Solar rooms and can be booked out during all even hour times (10am, 12pm, 2pm, etc). These tanks have shallower water (25cm).
