It is a pretty daunting concept for most of us who take all of these for granted each day.
At Lacor Float Centre, they like to focus on exactly that, sense depravation, and eliminating all outside distractions. With up to 400kg of pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salts dissolved into 40cm deep water, you literally escape the pull of gravity.
The skin-temperature water ensures that your body is not doing any extra work than what it should. To draw you a picture you are essentially floating in an enclosed pod for 1 hour. If that sounds like a long time of doing nothing, then I can reassure it was!
However, if you embrace the experience and relax your mind, the time in there will go super quick and will provide some amazing benefits. Three sessions are recommended to help understand the floating process and to begin to reap its long-term advantages.
General wellbeing, mental and physical benefits include increased motivation and improved sleep, increases problem solving and expands awareness, boosts immune function, helps prevent sports injury’s and improves overall skin appearance.
And if that’s not enough to convince you to give this unique type of meditation therapy a go, you can enjoy a coffee and some delicious food from Benchmark café afterwards, which is located in the same vicinity.
