Reboot Your Mind and Body at Brisbane’s Newest World-Class Relaxation and Recovery Centre.
Float therapy and cryotherapy are the two hottest trends in health and wellness. Now, for the first time in Australia, these two therapies will be available under one roof at The Float Space West End.
Opening this November and located on Montague Road in eclectic West End, The Float Space Brisbane is passionate owners Janina Hildebrand’s and Felipe Galler’s expansion of their popular wellness destination on the Sunshine Coast in Maroochydore, where they’ve facilitated over 20,000 floats since opening in 2015.
With the remarkable improvements they’ve seen in their clients’ quality of life, the German/Brazilian couple are extremely excited to bring their expertise and the world’s finest, largest and most advance float tanks to Brisbane.
“Our world is bursting with stimulation and it’s unlikely that this will change. But if we have a tool that can help us actually become more resistant to stress and go through our daily lives feeling happy, pain free and more relaxed, wouldn’t that alone be amazing?” says Hildebrand.
What is The Float Space difference?
The Float Space provides a unique and cutting edge experience to customers with a high-end spa ambiance. It features three private suites, cryosauna and infrared sauna. The combination of these unique therapies offered at The Float Space takes health and well-being to a whole other level and provides something for everybody.
“If you’re looking for a stress-free getaway and some hours of peace and quiet, The Float Space is the perfect place to go,” said Galler. “Our therapies help to relieve the stress, tension and pain that fill our daily lives. Float therapy that can improve your immune system, calm your nervous system and even reduce blood pressure by putting the user in a meditative state where there is no gravity. We can’t think of a better break from a busy schedule than to take an hour to float off your stress.”
What is float therapy?
Float therapy is a unique and powerful relaxation and recovery tool involving floating effortlessly in body temperature, highly purified water packed with hundreds of kilograms of relaxing Epsom salt. It’s the combination of a sensory reduced environment (no light, no sound, no touch) and the effect of zero gravity on the body that allows you to effortlessly reach a state of sheer relaxation, leaving you feeling like you’ve just hit the reset button on life.
Research studies show that floating reduces blood pressure and stress hormone levels, and it’s been effectively used to treat insomnia, chronic pain, migraines and more.
What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Being exposed to a temperature of -150C for a quick 3 minutes is whole body cryotherapy. The theory behind cryotherapy is that the extreme cold decreases injury inflammation and pain, facilitating faster body recovery. It has also been praised for boosting energy, helping sleep disorders and jet lag, accelerating weight loss and collagen production while reducing cellulite.
The anti-ageing virtues of extreme cold have been known for a long time in Nordic and Eastern countries for rejuvenation and as an apparent fountain of youth.
Who does it?
Boasting these amazing health benefits, it comes as no surprise that celebrities and professional athletes around the globe have been secretly using float and cryotherapy for many years to get ahead and elevate their health and beauty.
The Australian Institute of Sport facilitate floating to their athletes since the 2000 Olympic games, while athletes like Steph Curry from the Golden State Warriors and NRL legend Willie Mason among others have made floatation a part of their lives.
UFC fighter, Tom Watson, states “Sometimes the benefits are mental, and I’m more alert and less burned out, and sometimes the benefits are physical, and I’m feeling refreshed and ready to train again. But either way, it’s like a reset button, and that’s critical when you’re pushing hard for a fight”.
Australia’s own Elle Macpherson favoured floatation throughout her career – both for the relaxation and natural skin care benefits of the Epsom salts and it’s been speculated that cryotherapy is really how Demi Moore stays looking so young. Cryotherapy has also been used by basketball superstar Lebron James, boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and soccer great Cristiano Ronaldo to overcome injuries and extend their careers.
Float therapy and cryotherapy aren’t amazing because athletes and celebrities do it; athletes and celebrities float and cryo because it is amazing.
Simple, inexpensive, natural and effective: floatation and cryotherapy is a health- and performance-enhancing experience for everyone.
Both float therapy and cryotherapy are a great solution for stressed business people and students, sleep deprived parents, pregnant women, athletes, labour workers, jet lagged travellers, or anyone looking for a unique experience or wanting to boost their energy levels.
The Float Space Brisbane is located at 4/394 Montague Rd, West End and will officially open to the public mid November 2016.
