Strength Building

Magnesium is a natural sedative, it promotes heart health by reducing blood pressure and heart rate, giving the body a natural way to release stress


Concentrated magnesium salt water creates a zero gravity state.  The salt is continually absorbed by the skin, allowing the skin to remain smooth and supple.  The ultra-deep relaxation of floating “resets” the body’s hormonal and metabolic balance, strengthening resistance to and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.  Endorphins are released, powerful natural pain relievers and mood enhancers that promote a sense of well-being. Deep relaxation causes your brainwaves to shift into a theta state. Theta brainwaves are a rare brain state, normally achievable by people trained extensively in meditation. Floating can be considered as a short cut to achieving the deepest state of mind, and wellbeing.

    Come 20 mins early for your first appointment, and make sure you have eaten at least 30 mins prior to the session and avoid caffeine for at least 3hrs prior.

    Shaving or waxing before the session should be avoided as the salt may irritate the skin.

    Women who are menstruating should reschedule for when their period has ended.

    It is advisable to speak to your Doctor if you have any medical conditions prior to floating.

    You will be provided with ear plugs, a towel, a face washer and an eco friendly mini personal care pack from Seed and Sprout with natural body wash, shampoo and face bars.

    Remove all clothes (or leave swimming costume on if more comfortable) and jewellery.

    Shower before entering the tank, make sure you test all your mini body cleansing bars, we love clean floaters here 🙂

    Enter tank and close door lid, hook the face washer on the handle so it’s within an easy reach just in case you get the saltwater in your eyes.

    Gently lie back and let the buoyancy of the water help you float, we recommend floating without a head support as it allows your body to maintain a naturally neutral position. We do have supports available, however, if you feel more comfortable with one.

    Music plays for 5-10mins at the start of your session to help you relax, or continuously if you prefer.

    You then drift off blissfully floating in your warm, gravity-free environment for your chosen time (30/60/90mins).

    The music starts to play again for the last 5 mins of your session and at the end of your session, you will hear a voice gently telling you that your session is over. This means there is no worry about falling asleep and not realising it’s time to get out.

    Falling asleep is a normal part of floating and is totally safe.

    Get out of the tank slowly and carefully.  Magnesium does make your skin slippery and you will be very relaxed.

    Take a shower again, you need to wash the magnesium off.

    Get dressed and head out to the lounge area for a beautiful herbal tea and glass of water (and to book in for your next float!)

    “Having experienced shoulder pain for most of my adult life after a snowboarding injury I just thought I had to cope with all the associated ailments and constant pain. I recently Tore my supraspinatus and went to Cathy for assistance. After just a few sessions of deep tissue massage, cupping and needling I now realise how much pain I was dealing with needlessly. The improvement has been way above my expectations. My quality of life has improved and my mental state is greatly uplifted. Nobody can fix the tear in my tendon, that’s a slow heal but to remove all of the associated pain and feel that recovery is in sight has been fantastic. I highly recommend Cathy and her caring yet professional approach to injury rehabilitation.”

    “Cath is an inspiring & motivated trainer. I really dislike exercising but Cath’s ability to create work outs that are unique to me & my body is incredible. She makes the sessions fun, while weaving in technical aspects. I’ve seen really positive results in my strength & body shape. I highly recommend Cath!”

    “Cathy is the kind of person you want on your health team. She’s passionate, innovative and her treatments work!! I wouldn’t see anyone else. I recommend her to everyone. I love how Cath weaves in dry needling, massage and movement as well as other holistic modalities to make sure you leave nourished on all levels. Cath’s always ahead of the game, and is a total legend to boot.”

    “Receiving a massage and dry needling treatment from Cathy was an incredibly relaxing and deeply therapeutic experience. I’ve received countless massages, acupuncture and osteopathic treatments from many therapists over the years, and I can honestly say Cathy’s was one of the best I’ve ever had. I immediately felt her years of experience through her intuitive and strong hands, and felt very confident in her ability to diagnose and soothe the stresses in my body. Thanks again Cathy- I’m looking forward to our next appointment.”
