We live in a world surrounded by constant internal and external stimulation. Floating is the ultimate escape – like pressing ‘mute’ on life for a blissful hour (or more!).
Explore a world without distraction, where you can pay back your sleep debt, recharge your inner creative or free your body from pain and inflammation. Welcome to the divine world of floating.
The (short) history of floating
Floating can be traced back to the 1950s when Dr John C. Lilly developed the first float tank in an attempt to understand what happened to brain activity without any external, physical stimuli. At Astral Float Studio you’ll be able to experience the same state of sensory relaxation that Lilly found in a float tank.
Providing float therapy in Canberra since September 2016, Astral Float Studio is now open north and southside, with our southside studio offering open, accessible float baths for people living with a disability or for those who are claustrophobic.
Open seven days a week from 9:30am – 11:00pm, Astral Float Studio is proud to be Canberra’s first float studio.
A few reasons why you should float
Enhance your creativity
Floating is the ultimate way to switch off the world and enjoy the pure bliss of silence. Your brain is at its most creative and inspired when there are no distractions. If you want to perform better at work or renew your creative energy, floating is the answer.
If you need to invest more in your own health and happiness, float therapy is an incredibly effective way to reduce many symptoms of stress.
Pain relief and sleep
Need to speed up muscle recovery? Floating helps to reduce lactic acid and muscle soreness, while feeding your body with more magnesium to repair faster. Plus, sleeping for one hour during a float is the equivalent of four hours sleep in bed. And there’s no better night’s sleep than the one post-float. All you need to do is make a booking.
