Stanza Di Galleggiamento Per Relax

Floating Room

According to studies, about 80% of our brain is constantly involved in interpreting stimuli coming from our five senses. The Floating Room or Float Room allows you to achieve deep relaxation through the floating technique, obtained thanks to the special concentration of salts in the water of the tub. A few minutes after the beginning of the session, lights and music fade until the room becomes completely dark and silent, “deactivating” all external stimuli. The result is a deep and unprecedented state of well-being and relaxation, body and mind are reconciled in a completely natural and non-invasive way.

The treatment

Scientific studies

The theoretical assumption, conceived by dr. John Lilly in the 1950s, is that the brain engages almost 85% of its potential to handle external stimuli such as gravity, temperature, feel, light, and sounds. By floating, the mind is freed from all external distractions and can reach deep levels of relaxation and meditation, and a state of pure sensory relaxation.During the floating session, the brain passes gradually to the alpha, theta and even delta waves. Such a state can be reached after hours of meditation and years of workout. While floating, the effect can be obtained already in the first session!

The floating session

The Floating Room allows you to achieve a deep relaxation effect through the floating technique, obtained thanks to the special concentration of salts in the water. A few minutes after the beginning of the session, the lights and music fade to recreate darkness and the absolute silence, eliminating all external stimuli. The result is a deep and unprecedented state of well-being and relaxation, body and mind are reconciled in a completely natural and non-invasive way.

Distribuzione Interna Ambiente Floating Room



Floating creates total relaxation, eliminates fatigue and Jet-Lag. It improves sleep and relieves physical and mental stress.

Cerebral stimulation

Floating stimulates the right and left side of the brain, lowering the brain waves to Alpha, Theta and Delta. This creates mental clarity, increases creativity and problem-solving.

Psychic strenghtening

Floating reinforces motivation, reduces depression, anxiety, and fear by helping to divert phobias and dependencies.

Cool down

Floating reduces blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen consumption. It improves the circulation and distribution of nutrient factors in the body.

Phyisical benefit effects

Floating decreases the production of lactic acid, cortisol and adrenaline. Increases endorphin production by speeding up recovery from injuries. It improves muscle aches, arthritis and improves the immune system.

Long term benefits

The benefits of the Floating Room are further strengthened by multiple regular sessions and are also maintained long after the session.
