About the float retreat

The Float Retreat is a high end space on the Hertfordshire/Essex borders where you can effortlessly float in warm, salty water in a sound proof and dark or low lit pod. As the music and lights are dimmed there is minimal outside stimulation which is ideal for deeply relaxing, reducing stress and practising mindfulness. As your mind relaxes the epsom salts high magnesium content starts work on repairing muscle trauma and the weightless sensation becomes a transforming experience.

The pods are in private rooms with a shower and changing area in the room. Towels, hair and body products are provided for your use. The vanity room is equipped with mirrors and hairdryers for your use after your float session. We strive to maintain a high standard of service and cleanliness at our centre with state of the art pods and technology.

Meet the founder

My name is Irene Ruane

As a previous mental health practitioner, I was able to recognise the benefits floating can bring to ones mental wellbeing. Therefore I am very excited to start this business during a time when so many are struggling to find mental and physical harmony. As well as being an ideal place of sanctuary, floating can also be beneficial in the repair of muscle strain.

We’ve been to The Float Retreat a couple of times and have loved both experiences. The float itself is very relaxing and peaceful and the location is clean and modern. Irene is very thorough and details how to operate the pods. There are also facilities to dry your hair after your float and shower. Will definitely be back again
