A floatation tank is a lightless, soundless tank filled with highly concentrated Epsom salt water heated to skin temperature. Floatation, also known as sensory deprivation, is simply the act of relaxing in a floatation tank; with all sights and sounds removed, and drifting into a meditative state that rejuvenates your mind and body. 

Epsom salts are rich in magnesium, the second most abundant element in the human body and vital to good health and well-being. When floating, the Epsom salt solution helps with lymph drainage and promotes magnesium absorption. 


Sports - Sportsmen and women who use the tanks to maximise their training routines and accelerate recovery from injuries and overtraining. This speeds recovery from injury and helps flush any lactate, cortisone and adrenaline that may have built up through training or performance. Floating has been shown to loosen the muscles and give more control over your nervous system. This reduces the risk of injury during training or competition. 

Medical - Floating takes the pressure of gravity off joints and muscles and puts your body into a high state of physical relaxation. Blood pressure and oxygen intake are reduced but at the same time, blood flow and the distribution of red blood cells increases. 

Floating accelerates the recovery process and releases vast amounts of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. 

Research shows that raising magnesium may have the following benefits: 

Relieve stress – Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium helps bind serotonin, the happy hormone! 

Relaxation – Elevates chemicals in the brain that work to create a feeling of well-being and relaxation. 

Migraines – Eases and prevents migraine headaches. 

Detoxification – Flushes toxins and heavy metals from the cells in the body. This in turn helps ease muscle pain and clear out harmful substances picked up from our modern environment. 

Diabetes – Improved insulin sensitivity aids blood glucose control which can aid in the prevention or severity of diabetes. 

Heart Health – Improves heart and circulatory health. It prevents the hardening of the arteries, and blood clots and lowers overall blood pressure. 

Bone health – Magnesium helps assimilate calcium into the bones. 


Flotation can benefit everyone, from athletes and creatives to business people, the elderly, and those with medical issues. Floatation is a form of alternative medicine and boasts an extensive wealth of benefits: 

  • Stimulates the release of endorphins 
  • Creates calm and total relaxation 
  • Rejuvenates the mind and body 
  • Alleviates mental and physical stress 
  • Helps with fatigue and jet lag 
  • Improves sleep and insomnia 
  • Improves creativity, healing, and visualisation 
  • Expands awareness and heightens senses 
  • Enhances mental clarity and deepens your mental state 
  • Improves self-realisation and discovery 
  • Helps with anxiety, depression, and motivation 
  • Helps with phobias and addiction 
  • Helps with PTSD symptoms 
  • Decreases the perception of pain 
  • Relieves bones, joints, muscles 
  • Relieves aches, pains, and strains 
  • Relieves arthritis, migraines, and rheumatism 
  • Relieves fibromyalgia 
  • Helps with pregnancy pain

  • Improves immunity 
  • Helps athletes produce less cortisol, adrenaline, and lactic acid 
  • Helps athletes visualise their performance for success 
  • Helps athletes master the inner game and synchronise mind, body, and emotion 
  • Reduces the risk of further injury and overtraining 
  • Resets the body’s chemical & metabolic balance 
  • Speeds up the healing process and recovery 



Floating is achieved by adding a high concentration of Epsom salts to the water. Much like in the Dead Sea, this raises the density and buoyancy of the water. 

Float tanks will use around 1000 litres of water and 550 kg of magnesium and sulphate-rich Epsom salts, increasing the specific gravity for the solution to around 1.27. 

This change to the density adds buoyancy to the water and allows a flotation tank user to float. 



Epsom salts allow the float tank user to float but also do so much more. Ancient wisdom tells us that Epsom salts are an effective cure-all with benefits including stress relief along with easing aches and pains. 


The I-sopod is a truly modern flotation tank, taking float pods into the 21st century. This beautiful, durable, unrivalled, world-class floatation tank has a range of innovative features including: 

Revolutionary – the I-sopod is constructed from finest quality materials.  

Energy – the pod has a double skin and is hermetically sealed for maximum sound and thermal insulation. 

Safety – the pod is only heated when it’s filtered and has low voltage for internal lighting, call button & all electronics, making it incredibly safe. 

Lighting – the pod utilises the latest LED spa lamps. 

Audio – the pod contains a built-in MP3 player, SD card for music playback, Bluetooth & 3.5mm AUX jack for connectivity and produces the highest fidelity stereo sound. 

Comfort – the i-sopod has the largest pod interior on the market. The pods are fully ventilated and have the option of an open or closed door. 

Filtration – it uses the latest filtration technology and pump with filters 100x smaller than a human hair. The solution in the tanks is automatically kept at a constant temperature and is inherently sterile due to the high concentration of dissolved Epsom salts (Magnesium Sulphate). After each float session the powerful filtration system is automatically activated, eliminating any debris and keeping the tank clean at all times. The solution passes 3 3/4 times through our 1 micron filter and past our powerful 55w UV sterilization chamber. Disinfectant is also automatically dosed after each and every use of the pod. 

Programmable – the tank contains a digital control unit which controls length of session, music, disinfection, and cleaning through an LCD interface.
