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.
Along with float therapy, visitors can also enjoy infrared sauna therapy, compression therapy, oxygen therapy, full body red light therapy, as well as sunless tanning.
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.
Elements Float Health Spa is located at Unit 2, 236-238 Great Western Highway, Emu Plains.
