I am very excited to be trying floatation therapy today and was wondering if anyone has used it before and what your experiences have been like.

  • No, but I would like to! Perhaps I’ll start with a DIY version and fill the home tub up with warm epsom salt solution and just hang there! The magnesium will help relax muscles so might do the trick!

  • I am paying $50 per one hour float. Business is doing an introductory package of buy 2 floats for $100 get a 3rd free. I suppose it would depend on where you are located, how long the business has been established and if they offer other services.

  • Is it an expensive therapy?

  • I have not used this therapy – glad to read that it is working for you.

  • Yes. I love swimming too… where I live the pool in town is only open 5 months of the year… I do have a pool at home but as it is above ground I can’t climb the ladder safely in at the moment due to pregnancy (well the back, hip etc. issues)… getting a hydrotherapy pool in town hopefully this year which will be good.

  • I used to know a colleague who had a swimming pool and she told me she used to swim every morning /day and that relieved her from some aliments such as stress and it is good for general wellbeing . It is not surprising , as water is very therapeutic as calming . I think I will have to learn to swim , but not too keen in the waters .

  • You are able to leave the lid (middle part opens and shuts) open… apparently has been used as a tool to help those suffering from Claustrophobia to get used to the idea of being in a smaller space without feeling trapped… certainly for some people it may not be ideal and for others a great tool to overcome the fear. I will acknowledge that it is a very personal choice though.

  • I am very claustrophobic so don;t think I would like the idea of this type of therapy but I can certainly imagine that it would be very relaxing for most people!

  • Thankyou Ladies…
    It is great for stress and relaxation…
    You float in a tank that looks a lot like a giant bath/spa with a hood and closable lid see picture…
    The water is saturated with Epsom Salts which makes you buoyant. The local operators in my town offer a 1 hour float for $50. I would suggest looking via Google or another search engine for local providers in your area & do some more research on Floatation Therapy.

  • is it for stress and relaxation? Sounds really nice.

  • I would be very interested to know how it is done. Obviously it relieves pain. Where??

  • wow i am glad that you enjoyed it. i hadn’t even heard of this therapy before. it sounds like it was great for you though

  • After going to the float I can say it was definitely worth while… so relaxing I had to come home for a sleep.
