Just for fun!You don't need an excuse to enjoy yourself
You can benefit from floating even if there isn’t something ‘wrong’ with you. You don’t have to be stressed, or in pain, or recovering from an injury, even if it is great for all of those things.
You can choose to float simply because it is fun!
You might think of it like a bit of pampering – time for you. Like how some people enjoy going to a spa for fun.
You might do it simply because you enjoy it, and it feels good.
The fact that it is good for you is an added bonus – much like how healthy eating or exercise don’t have to be boring or a chore – whether you’re eating amazing salads or taking up hooping, the key is to find something you enjoy!
Floatation used to be known as ‘sensory deprivation’. You might notice we don’t tend to use that phrase here at Float in the Forest. If anything we consider it to be sensory enhancement!
The feeling of weightlessness in the warm salty water is like no other sensation. The way the salty water feels silky on your skin. The chance to take the time to think, or not, as you wish. Even the luxury of having your own private room!
The way you feel after a float is part of the fun.
At Float in the Forest you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy our chill-out room afterwards, and make the most of that lovely feeling. Relax in comfy chairs, have a cup of tea, enjoy the artwork on the walls, peruse the books in our library, play with some creative materials if you fancy it… take your time.
You could even combine your float with another activity, to make the most of that post-float feeling. At Float in the Forest you will have the opportunity to experience a package combining your float with other fun and relaxing treatments and activities – watch this space for more details.
You could go for a walk outside in the beautiful Forest of Dean. Or you could make the most of your relaxation time and take part in one of the many fantastic activities available in the Forest of Dean area – check out the Forest of Dean & Wye Valley website for more details.
You could also come to float at the same time as a friend, and enjoy the experience together.
Floating doesn’t have to be serious!
