Float in the Forest

Beyond relaxation

Welcome to Float in the Forest!

Float in the Forest is your new floatation centre, coming soon to the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire

Floatation (or ‘floating’) is a type of relaxation therapy.

You float on the surface of warm water saturated with Epsom salt, in a comfortable environment where sound and light are minimised.  Imagine relaxing in a giant bathtub that you can sleep in with peace of mind.

Float in the Forest will provide a wonderful floatation experience, with the added benefit of emerging into a beautiful natural environment.

Current status: preparing for construction

 

Float in the Forest is not open yet, however we are working hard on getting open as soon as possible.

If you would like to be kept updated on our progress towards launch, sign up to our email list using the form at the bottom of this page. What’s more, you’ll get the chance to be one of the first to float!

Why float?

Deep Relaxation

Escape hectic daily life and let your tensions dissolve into weightless relaxation.  This is time which is yours alone, free of the demands of others.  Above all, the calm comfort of floatation soothes away stress and anxiety.  At last a space to truly rest the body and still the chatter of the mind.

Improved Health

Floatation reduces blood pressure and improves circulation. Levels of the ‘stress hormone’ cortisol are reduced. You are bathed in salts of the essential mineral Magnesium.  Furthermore, your muscles, joints and bones are released from the effects of gravity.

Pain Relief

Sufferers of chronic pain from many conditions including Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and back pain have gained relief by using floatation for pain management.  Muscle tension and joint pain are reduced through being unburdened by the buoyant water.

Sleep Better

The deep rest of floating dissolves fatigue, leaving you feeling truly refreshed.  Not only can a single float feel as restorative as a full night’s sleep, but certainly floating also improves sleep patterns, offering relief from insomnia and the ability to ‘reset’ jet lag.

Accelerated Recovery

Sports recovery is boosted by floatation as a result of lactic acid broken down faster, allowing you to train smarter and get back to doing what you love sooner.  Likewise rehabilitation times from injury are reduced, and what’s more, proper recuperation keeps you at the top of your game.  Enhance your performance and visualise your success.

Pregnancy

Floating can give profound relief from the physical strains of pregnancy due to the buoyancy of the water. An opportunity to practise breathing techniques and relax. Not only is this a real rest for you and your baby, but also a chance to build a profound connection together in a peaceful and supportive environment.

Meditation

Floating is a doorway to deeper meditation. The reduced sensory input and weightlessness removes distractions, empowering you to quiet your mind with ease.  As a result you can switch off your mind and be present, and make it easier to do so in your every day life.

Freedom from habits

The float environment puts the power to reprogram unwanted behaviours in your hands.  Consequently, this is an opportunity to abandon your addictions.  Through regular floating you can insert a pause between the stimulus and the habitual response, giving you an opportunity to act from somewhere authentic.

Consciousness Exploration

You are the frontier of unlimited possibility, free to experiment without constraint.  Travel through time.  Explore the multiverse.  Hang out with transdimensional entities.  This is your space.  What’s more, this is your adventure.  Have fun and enjoy!

Mental Clarity

Discover a space of peaceful reflection, while free of all distractions.  This environment fosters true focus: for improved decision-making, effective problem-solving, deeper insight, and freedom of mind. Certainly here is the clarity you need to make real progress.

Business

First of all, business floatation packages offer team-bonding and brainstorming opportunities. Focus on your business problem or idea with a fresh new perspective.  Furthermore, floatation membership provides options for happy, healthy and productive employees.

Learning

Find a calm mind, free of distractions.  You can give full attention to learning, absorb knowledge more quickly, and  understand more deeply.  Similarly, the more challenging the concept, the more useful you will find floating.

Creativity Unleashed

Break creative block.  Open a channel to the wellspring of your innate creativity.  Calm the inner chatter and find peace of mind.  Open yourself to inspiration, and maybe meet your muse in the garden of your mind.

Fun

Enjoy the sensations. Revel in the time alone.  Wallow in that post-float feeling.  Combine your float with other activities and treatments.  Bring a friend along.  Above all, floating doesn’t have to be serious, and you don’t need an excuse to enjoy yourself.
