      FLOAT CABIN

      FLOAT CABIN

      Flow is the first in New Zealand to offer the Dreampod Cabin, the newest innovation from Dreampod Flotation Tanks. Our float cabin has 800kg of Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate) in 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees Celsius (skin temperature). Stimulus deprivation occurs as your sensation of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound is removed (these make up 90% of your normal neuromuscular activity). Floating allows you to redirect and conserve substantial amounts of natural physical and mental energy = just like hitting the reset button! 

      The benefits of floating in the float cabin include:

      • Improved sleep patterns
      • Relief from stress, anxiety, depression and addiction
      • Time out from screens and the outside world
      • Decreased pain and side effects associated with medical conditions such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis
      • Healthier hair and skin
      • Increased absorption of magnesium via Epsom salts
      • Lowered blood pressure
      • Reduced cortisol and adrenal output
      • Elevated secretion of the ‘happy hormones’ serotonin and dopamine

      FLOATING PROCEDURE – ALLOWING 90 MINUTES:

      • Do not consume caffeine, alcohol or cigarettes at least 4 hours prior to floating
      • Wait two weeks to float after dying your hair
      • Wait one week after applying spray-tan
      • If you are incontinent we ask you to refrain from using the float cabin
      • If you are receiving chemotherapy, you must wait 4 weeks from last treatment before floating
      • Sorry ladies while menstruating or breast-feeding you cannot use the float cabin
      • Do not wax or shave within 24 hours of floating as the salt water may irritate your skin
      • It is recommended to have a light meal approximately two hours prior to your float, to avoid distractions of hunger or a full stomach
      • Arrive at Flow and check in
      • Shower and remove all makeup and skin products and wash your hair
      • Insert ear plugs
      • You are now ready to enter the float cabin
      • Carefully enter the float cabin and lay down
      • You have the opportunity to rest your head on a float ring
      • You can shut the door or leave it open……maximum stimulus deprivation occurs with the door shut, but only if you feel comfortable
      • The music will play for the first 10 minutes and again in the last 5 minutes
      • When the music ends you will know it is the end of your float
      • Please exit the cabin ever so slowly and mindfully as your body will be very slippery with the salts, follow the rubber mat back to the bathroom and enjoy a peaceful shower using our complimentary products
      • Our float cabin has 800kg of epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) in around 1500 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees Celsius (skin temperature)
      • The magnesium sulphate concentrate acts as a natural antimicrobial, with no pathogenic organisms able to survive in salt concentrations higher than approximately 10%
      • As soon as your float ends, the cabin’s filtration system will begin, and unlike at a public pool where the water is generally filtered once in 6 hours, our cabin filters the water up to 5 times between each float
      • The main filter device is a custom built stainless steel enclosure holding a replaceable 10 micron filter bag, capable of filtering debris in the water as small as 1/4 the size of the diameter of a human hair. Water is also pumped by a UV light array, taking care of any micro-organisms that survives the extreme salt content of the water.
