Float room

Floating room

The Float room represents the latest wellness concept. Nowadays the demand of non-invasive, soft treatments against stress and everyday life tirediness is largely increasing: the floating therapy is an efficient and powerfull ally for fighting all this diseases. The floating takes place in a tub filled with a special solution of magnesium sulfate at c.a. 35°C, which allows the body to float peacefully and effortlessly.  The tub is housed in a special sound proof room,  where the lights slowly fade away and leave place to peace and meditation. Through the sensory deprivation,  with light, sound and gravity not being present, the mind drifts into a deep state of relaxation, never experienced before.

The floating therapy can be combined with soft treatments as savonage and massages: our brochure introduces exclusive and high level emotional paths which can be drawn along the Spa and the beauty farm.

Floating technique for relaxation

The theoretical basis, concieved by dr. John Lilly in the 50ies, is that our brain è che il cervello undertakes almost 85% of its potential to manage external inputs such as gravity, temperature, and information coming through senses like touch, light, sounds. Thanks to the floatation, the mind is freed from all external distractions and can reach deep levels of relaxation and meditation, entering a mood of pure sensory relaxation.
During the floating session, our brain shifts gradually to alfa, theta and even delta waves. Such a state of mind can be reached after hours of meditation and years of training. During the floatation, the effect can be obtained already in the first session.

The floating session

The Floating Room allows to achieve an effect of deep relaxation through the technique of flotation, obtained thanks to the special concentration of Magnesium salts in the water.
After a few minutes after the beginning of the session, the lights and the music fade, in order to recreate the darkness and absolute silence necessary to eliminate all external stimuli.
The result is a deep and total well-being sensation and relaxation, rebalancing both physical and mental stress in a completely natural and non-invasive way.
