Hidden in Emu Plains is an oasis of relaxation and rejuvenation where you can literally let your troubles float away.
Float therapy has been a popular choice to decrease stress for a while now, but I recently had the opportunity to try it out myself for the first time at Elements Float Health Spa.
Located in its own private room with a shower, the futuristic-looking float pod is a dark, soundproof float tank heated to body temperature and filled with magnesium rich water.
It’s designed to induce you into a meditative state and help to relax the muscles and reduce inflammation within the body.
Having never experienced a float before, the idea of shutting myself off from the world and lying in the dark for an hour sounded overwhelming.
But, as soon as I closed the pod and allowed myself to naturally float on top of the water, I could feel the float pod start to work its magic
Although at first it’s hard to shut your brain off and not think about everything on your to-do list, as the session progressed I found my stress start to disappear and my muscles unwind. At one point, I even started to drift asleep.
Then, before I knew it, the session was up and I was left feeling calmer than I have been for a long time, wondering when I could book in for my next appointment.
New to Emu Plains, Elements Float Health Spa uses nature’s elements with the latest technology resources to provide wellness spa therapies in a safe environment.
One of the many great things about the new spa is that it’s completely contactless, so you don’t need to worry about awkward eye contact while enjoying a float, massage or getting a tan. And for those who are interested in float therapy but aren’t a fan of closed in spaces, the spa also offers a float room, which is perfect for couples.
