Floating is a wonderful way to deal with the stress and worry, muscles recovery, to rest, re-charge and escape the hustle and bustle of London’s busy lifestyle. It is scientifically proven to increase our mental and physical wellbeing in as little as an hour.
Highly recommended for all yogis, athletes, sport lovers and everyone who is looking after their well-being.
Some float centres advise that floating should be avoided in the first three months of pregnancy. This is based on the knowledge that the first trimester is when most miscarriages naturally occur. If a miscarriage were to coincidentally occur not long after a float session took place, accusations might be made.
Floating is a wonderful way to deal with the stress and worry of pregnancy. For many women, the first trimester is just as tough, if not tougher, than the third. Floating regularly could provide much needed relief.
We believe floating is safe for all stages of pregnancy, although we recommend that all mothers-to-be should speak with their midwife / health care professional about floating prior to taking their first float session.
Floating is very popular with pregnant women, particularly those in the third trimester who find the gravity- free environment of the float tank a much needed haven from the huge strain that the latter stages of pregnancy place on the body, even laying down on a bed or sofa can be extremely uncomfortable for pregnant women.
The super-saturated salt solution used in the floatation experience means that anyone can float effortlessly on the surface, with the whole body being entirely supported. Unless you are planning on a career with NASA, this is the only environment you will ever encounter where the debilitating effects of gravity are totally neutralised.
Our customer comments book shows that many of our pregnant customers note that their “passengers” seem to enjoy the floatation experience just as much as they do. Many expectant mums have testified that their babies seem to relax very quickly as soon as they have settled down into the float environment.
It is common for some new customers to be slightly apprehensive and even a little nervous before their first floatation session.
In the floatation pod you are not trapped nor obliged to stay in, if you don't like it you can always get out at any point. Once we explain this to our customers and they realise that are in control of the whole procedure their worries subside and they usually go on to float with the door closed and the light off. Both of these functions are controllable from within the tank.
The i-sopod floatation tank is actually larger than a small car and is much bigger than most customers imagine.
The great thing about the floatation experience is that once you get inside and lay back into the silky smooth solution and surrender yourself to the buoyancy it all starts to feel very luxurious and safe.
Also, somewhat perversely when you close the door and switch off the light you get a fantastic sense of space that is almost infinite and is the complete opposite to what a new customer might think it's like inside a float tank.
