If you are looking for a way to relax then a new business in Winchester Road, Andover called Room To Float may be able to help.
Run by Richard and Debbie King, Room To Float has a large, light and soundproof room with 25cm of water heated exactly to blood temperature, supersaturated with 350kgs of naturally healing Epsom salts, giving buoyancy like the Dead Sea effect.
This enables you to float on the surface of the water effortlessly, the lack of gravity and external stimulus helps even the first timer to drop into a deeply relaxed mental and physical state of healing and well-being.
A one hour float session is apparently equivalent to four hours of the most restorative deep sleep and can help:
- Alleviate anxiety and stress
- Reduce blood pressure, pulse, heart rate and increases oxygen consumption
- Boost immune function
- Give pain relief from arthritis and rheumatism
Clients have reported feeling very relaxed on leaving and surprise that the session has been a whole hour and because it is a room and not a tank there is no feeling of claustrophobia.
Room to Float are open from 9.30am to 10.00pm – further details are available on their website at www.roomtofloat.com
