Slí Beatha (Shlee Baha) Float House. Newly established Float Centre specialising in Floatation Therapy, based in Naas Town Centre.
• Floatation Therapy is a unique and powerful tool that is highly effective at combating chronic stress and its associated conditions. Floating is also highly enjoyable and creates profound experiences of relaxation and wellbeing.
Floating combines the sensation of weightlessness with an experience known technically as Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy (REST). Over 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate) are dissolved into a pool with water that is maintained at human skin temperature. This super-saturated Epsom Salt solution creates a hyper buoyant environment where users naturally float on the surface without any effort.
The effortless floatation frees the user from the effects of gravity, facilitating a deep relaxation of the body and a state of meditative calm within the mind.
From a health perspective, meditation has been shown to reduce blood pressure, calm the nervous system and increase alpha wave patterns in the brain. Recent studies suggest that it dramatically improves the immune system by reducing anxiety, worry and stress.
“I’ve come to realize that when the mind and body are relaxed and absent of chronic stress, it has an amazing ability to heal itself.”
During flotation, there’s an increase in full body circulation. Oxygen is delivered to cells with greater efficiency, and the brain is better able to function. The act of floating encourages the body to relax and allows its systems to function unimpeded.
Physical benefits of floatation include:
Simply put, floating calms our overly stimulated systems and restores the body’s chemical and metabolic balance.
Research consistently demonstrates that Floatation therapy has a significant impact on mood enhancement. Suggested reasons for this increased level of happiness include elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins, through to the deep meditative state achieved during floatation therapy. -
Floatation therapy can help with a host of mental health issues such as anxiety, PTSD, ADD, and ADHD. Floating in the dark is a profoundly serene experience.
Conditions like anxiety, depression & ADHD respond to the process of calming the mind. With no sensory input the continuous flow of pointless negative thoughts slows right down. For once, you can be in touch with your true self.
Floating benefits the mind:

No – your skin doesn’t even prune up. You do absorb a lot of magnesium from the Epsom salt which has oodles of benefits.
The first flotation tank was developed in 1954 by the American neurophysiologist Professor Dr. John C. Lilly while working at the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) in Maryland.USA.
In 1982, International REST Investigators Society (IRIS) was founded in order to give the increased number of REST researchers a platform to share their research findings. For several years float tanks were solely used by researchers in university laboratories or by private individuals.
In 1983 floating increased in popularity as more became known about it’s effects. Today, flotation therapy is a rapidly growing trend around the world
Absolutely! There will be a womb within a womb! Floating can relieve a lot of the aches and pains caused by pregnancy. If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.
Don’t drink coffee for several hours beforehand (it can make your system jittery). Also, don’t shave or wax since the salt water can irritate your skin. Eating a light meal about an hour to 90 minutes ahead of time stops your stomach from sounding like an angry monster while you float. Other than that, there’s no specific preparation needed.
We recommend that you don’t wear anything so that you can feel truly free and so you are not distracted by your clothing. However we completely understand this can be daunting the first time, so you can wear a costume if you like. You have your own private room to do as you please. –
The more regularly you float the better. Just like any activity, the more you practice the better you become, and the more cumulative effects you will see.
it really depends on the individual
At the beginning of your session there is 10 minutes of music to allow you to relax and then a golden silence for 45mins. In the last five minutes the music will fade back in to ease you back to out of your float.
The high saline content of the floatation environment ensures that nothing harmful can survive within the tank. The water within the tank is automatically filtered between each customer (and 24-hours a day when not in use). The water is filtered through a 1 micron pool filter (that’s 1/100th the diameter of a human hair!) and is sanitized with a small amount of disinfectant and UV light. – See more at: https://floatworks.com/faq#sthash.o00gJmRQ.dpuf
