A floatation tank (float tank) is a purpose built, soundproof tank which is partially filled with water and epsom salts. The water is heated to outer skin temperature (approximately 35°C). People use floatation tanks for relaxation a practice called flotation therapy. Flotation tanks are often called isolation tanks, sensory deprivation tanks or Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST) tank.
Our state-of-the art float tanks are exactly what you need to get your flotation therapy fix. Conveniently located in Strathpine, with great opening hours, we are the perfect spot to float in north Brisbane.
Floating is an energizing, rejuvenating practice that improves health and well-being, alleviates stress, and facilitates meditation and self-improvement.
Reducing activity in the cortex allows for a decrease in production of “stress hormones.”
Deep relaxation leads to a reduction of stress and the release of “feel-good” chemicals that stimulate the pleasure/reward centers in our brain.
Elimination of external stimulation facilitates deeper meditation.
Floating helps eliminate fatigue and enter the flow state, improves sleep, speeds the body's healing process, improves athletic performance and increases motivation.
Floating reduces blood pressure while im proving circulation, allowing for increased recovery from injury or athletic training.
Decreasing the build up of lactic acid helps to eliminate muscle fatigue.
The near zero gravity environment relieves pressure from the back, feet, and joints.
Floating facilitates creative insights, enhances problem-solving abilities, increases focus, expands awareness and accelerates learning.
Achieving and maintaining a Theta brain wave state allows for an increase in creativity.
Allowing the brain to operate free from external distraction enhances problem solving.
Heightened visualization helps to achieve the "flow state."

Avoid shaving/waxing on the day of your float as it may sting

How should I prepare?
Go easy on the caffeine or any other stimulants on the day of your float. We’d also recommend you don’t shave. Oh, and don’t dye your hair or get a fresh tattoo. If you just did either, we’d recommend you wait a few weeks before paying us a visit.
Do I need to bring anything?
Just bring a towel and an open mind. We provide all the particulars like body wash, shampoo, and ear plugs. When you book, we’ll ping you an email with some tips and advice on prepping for your first session.
What do I do after my session?
Try to take some time (even a few minutes) for yourself after your float. It’ll help you soak up the experience even further and give you a moment to ponder any thoughts or personal stuff that came up during your float. We have a calm, cozy little lounge with free tea and we’d love for you to use it.
How long is a float session?
Sure, though we recommend you start with 90 minutes—that seems to be the sweet spot for beginners. That said, we’re happy to accommodate longer float sessions. Get in touch.
How often should I float?
Yes. We require all sessions are made in advance by appointment, please and thank you.
Can I move my appointment after I have booked
Sure. Life happens, just let us know 24 hours ahead of time.
