Floatation Tanks

In keeping with our ethos, we have sourced the highest quality floatation tanks currently available, manufactured by the industry leader, Floatlab.
Floatation tanks, or sensory deprivation tanks are one of the modern answers to enhance meditation and deep relaxation. Removing the effects of sensory stimulus on our bodies (including gravity), has been shown to aid with an increasing number of ailments, optimise performance, and produce a rejuvenating response from the body in general.

Hyperbaric Chambers (HBOT)

Whilst undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), the air pressure can be increased to three times normal. Under these conditions the body absorbs more oxygen, which helps to fight bacteria, heal wounds, stimulate production and release of growth factors, and even stem cells. This, amongst a host of other benefits helps to promote anti-ageing, restorative, and healing effects. It has also been shown to be an effective clinical treatment for a number of serious conditions and injuries.

Infrared Sauna

Infra-red light is essential for humans to attain optimal health. Combining the benefits of a regular dry sauna with the infra-red light therapy has become a well known way of producing some very powerful, health promoting effects. Fat loss, release of stored toxins, waste, and heavy metals from the cells, improved appearance of skin and cellulite, and enhanced recovery are some (but not all) of the benefits.
