Birmingham’s first floatation spa offering Floatation Therapy also known as Restricted Environmental Stimulus Therapy (R.E.S.T) has arrived in the Jewellery Quarter.

The experience involves floating in a buoyant salt solution, provided by creating a super saturated mixture of Epsom salt and water. This allows you to float weightlessly and be supported perfectly, free from the sensation of gravity.

The salt-water solution is heated to skin temperature so once you are settled, it is almost impossible to tell which parts of your body are in the water and which aren’t. Eventually you achieve the sensation that you’re floating in mid air.

Floatation therapy has been embraced by celebrities and floating for a creative boost is actually very common. Jim Carrey, Susan Sarandon, Peter Gabriel and Elle Macpherson are just a few of the people that have liked getting some inspiration from the still waters every now and then.

The Floating Spa, which is based on Hall Street, offer the best floatation experience may that be a special treat, an after work relaxation, or somewhere to chill out and gather your thoughts. They recommend all first time floaters to have at least 3-5 sessions in order to experience the full range of benefits specific to you.

Packages start at £150 for 3 sessions – Book your package here
