Rest, Recover & Regenerate
With Ireland’s Most Spacious Float Rooms
Why Floatation Therapy?
Effortlessly enter a deep mediative state, loosing all sensation of your body and allow your mind to expand and explore. Feel total weightlessness and relaxation with complete spinal decompression and improved circulation.
Our FloatRest® rooms are the largest floatation devices in Europe, providing comfort and an excellent relaxing experience. The rooms have the status of a medical device, and meet European medical standards related to both safety and hygiene.
Numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies on the benefits of floating have been carried out at universities in the USA, Sweden and Germany.

The Many Benefits Of Floating
The evidence published so far suggests that Floatation-REST is a safe technique for rapidly reducing levels of stress, pain, and anxiety, with clinical research reporting beneficial effects across a wide range of different mild to severe conditions.
There have also been several promising studies focused on individuals with clinical anxiety, including generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anorexia nervosa, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and social anxiety disorder.

How Does Floating Work?
What Do I Need To Do?
There is no effort involved in floating. Everything happens automatically as part of a natural organic process. Simply enter our carefully curated environment. Relax and let the water support you.
The unique buoyancy provided by a just 30cm of healing Epsom salt solution, and the temperature of the solution and air matching your body’s temperature, creates a powerful impression of levitation where you no longer feel the force of gravity. By reducing all sensory experiences: sight, smell, touch and sound, your body drifts in a state of complete sensory isolation, free from external stimuli, where images, sounds, and touch naturally fade away.
Free from sensory input, the muscular-skeletal system and sympathetic nervous system wind down into a state of deeply relaxing state of serenity.
Your brain easily drifts away into the half-asleep/half-awake type Theta state which is associated with heightened creativity, problem-solving, and visualization.
Research has shown that Theta brain waves are present during periods of deep meditation. Unlike typical experiences of Theta brain waves, which are fairly short-lived as we transition between being awake and asleep, floating offers much more extended periods in the Theta state.
What Happens Afterwards?
Without the need to fight gravity or take-in external information, it will probably be the most relaxing experience you’ve ever had!
We recommend you sit and relax on our sofa for at least ten minutes after your post float shower. We offer water or a herbal tea.
Floating increases your feel-good, happy hormone dopamine, increases endorphin levels and reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This boosts your mood, leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts long afterwards, while your mind and body restore and rejuvenate.
We pride ourselves on ensuring the highest degree of hygiene is maintained. Customers are required to shower before (and after) their float.
The sterile 25% salt water solution ensures that nothing harmful can survive within the float room. Pathogenic microorganisms cannot survive in concentrations higher than 10% salt. The water is filtered through a 1-micron filter (that’s 1/100th the diameter of a human hair!) at least 4 times between each use. By comparison, standard pool and spa filters filter to just 20-30 microns.
Float Session Costs
We recommend you book three sessions initially to experience the full effect. Initial sessions are offered at a reduced cost and we often run offers for off peak times and other promotions.
