Why Floating?

From mental well being to muscle repair, after a float in one of our elite individual pods, you will leave feeling rejuvenated. The Float Retreat, Little Hadham, facilitates an experience of pure relaxation. Targeting your mind, body and soul, the benefits to floating are endless. Floating in Epsom salt, known as magnesium sulphate, has been a popular remedy to treat ailments for many years.

Set in the beautiful Hertfordshire/Essex countryside, yet with easy access to main roads and parking, the Float Retreat is the place where you can just be. Our detoxifying salt baths utilise the natural power of magnesium to deeply nourish your body and mind, increase circulation and promote healing.

Benefits of floating


muscle repair

Floating has a repairing effect on muscle strain and sports injuries. During your float, the body relaxes allowing the magnesium to penetrate the skin, drawing out toxins and lactic acid build up, and helps to restore muscle tissue, reducing recovery time and improving performance.


stress and anxiety

Floating significantly reduces levels of stress and anxiety. The low stimulus environment helps the mind lower cortisol levels (the stress hormone) which allows the mind to de-stress, relax and heal.



In a sensory deprivation tank, your mind is free from distractions. You become more aware of your breath and can focus on the here and now.



Intense relaxation gained from a float supports deeper and more restorative sleep.


pain management

Floating helps reduce pain in the neck and back. It is beneficial to people suffering with conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.



The experience of floating gives a sensation of weightlessness. This eases the strain on the body that pregnancy can bring. Muscles are able to relax and heal and it enhances the mother and baby bond.


creative & thinking skills

Floating in a stimulation restricted environment allows one to check in and focus on ideas or problems where solutions come flooding in.

Really accomodating and friendly staff. A wonderful experience. At 36 weeks pregnant I can't tell you how nice it is to be weightless and have that quiet time with just me and baby to bond and both be just listening to my heartbeat. Magical. I felt so relaxed afterwards and all my muscles and mind released tension and my body felt free.

If you're thinking of trying a float, just do it.
