Welcome to the Float Room

Come and experience floatation therapy at Float Om Kiama and let the excessive sensory stimuli of the outside world fade away.

Our flotation ‘room’ creates a spacious floating experience as you surrender your body and mind into full relaxation. Floatation can provide a variety of physical and psychological benefits to those with an open mind. You will be floating in highly concentrated Epsom salt water that is rich in magnesium and has been shown to help to reduce pain, stress as well as promoting ‘whole-brain’ thinking.


Floating is a very effective strategy to reach deep states of meditation and relaxation. Sensory Deprivation increases dopamine & serotonin production (pleasure & pain-killer hormones) which help to reduce anxiety, depression, & nervousness.


Floating is an effective strategy to help with sleep disorders (one hour in the float tank can be equivalent to 4 hours sleep), and is also known to aid in the reduction of symptoms of jetlag by resetting sleep patterns and concentrating on sleep loss.


Floatation Therapy reduces stiffness & tenderness in the muscles and alleviates symptoms of chronic pain symptoms caused by arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis & migraines. It also provides relief of discomfort from pre-menstrual & pregnancy symptoms.


Floating promotes blood circulation through the entire body, reducing inflammation, stress hormones & heart rate. Achieving deep rest during the recovery stage of muscle repair and growth can enhance athletic performance by improving muscle recovery time and eliminating fatigue.


Floating induces a Theta brainwave state and improves the connection of the right (creative) and left (analytical) hemispheres of the brain. The result is increased mental clarity & alertness, energy, motivation, productivity, creativity, insight & inspiration.


Floating boosts endorphins and heightens your senses allowing you to smell, taste, hear, and feel your world in a whole new way. The benefits of salt therapy are also known to soften and heal skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite and increase lustre of hair to make you glow inside and out.

Floating helps us reach theta state and it is easy to see how the quiet, distraction-free environment of the float room can help our brains achieve an unusually deep state of relaxation.

Theta waves occur just before falling asleep or waking up, or during deep daydreams or meditation.

Most of us experience these low-frequency theta waves as the dreamlike state just as we start to drift off to sleep, or when we start to waken but aren’t quite consciously thinking yet. Being in this very peaceful frame of mind is what many refer to as “theta state”.

Research points to theta waves as an indicator of deep relaxation and participants have reported experiencing a “blissful state” during their time in theta(.

Simply put, when floating, our brains are able to slow down and reach a deep level of calm that can be difficult to replicate in day-to-day life.
