Float. Salt. Sauna.
'Always believe something wonderful is about to happen'
WHAT IS FLOATING?
Floating creates a pure "sensory" relaxation. As you float weightlessly, your body is perfectly supported by a cushion of silky satin skin-temperature liquid, composed of water and 25% pure grade Epsom Salt . This creates a solution that is five to seven times denser and more buoyant than sea water.
Freed from all sensation of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound (which together account for 90% of normal neuro-muscular activity), you conserve and redirect vast amounts of natural physical and mental energy. Laying back, you float effortlessly on the surface with all parts of your body completely supported. Your muscles no longer have to fight against the constant downward push of gravity, the single greatest cause of wear and tear to bones, joints and body tissue.
The ultra-deep relaxation of floating also resets the body's hormonal and metabolic balance, strengthening resistance to - and accelerating recovery from - the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.
With ear plugs in and, if you wish, the pod’s interior lights off, the quietness and the darkness allow the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation possible.
A huge amount of brain power is used every second in order to deal with the strain that gravity places on one’s body but now floating weightlessly, your body is perfectly supported in this incredible environment.
Floating has been shown to enhance learning abilities, improve sports performance, promote creative "whole-brain" thinking and facilitate self-management.
"Most importantly, the float tank is not a hypothetical laboratory phenomenon, but a viable, proven technology"
- Dr Henry Adams, NIMH, Washington
SALT / HALO THERAPY
Salt therapy is a natural and non-invasive treatment suitable for adults and children of all ages. It has been known to cleanse both the airways and the skin to relieve congestion, inflammation and irritation.
By simply breathing in the micro salt particles of pure grade pharmaceutical salt, the airways open up, increasing oxygen intake and cleansing the respiratory system.
Salt also has natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antihistamine properties that can help to alleviate symptoms of a wide range of respiratory and skin conditions. Salt / Halo Therapy may offer relief from sleep issues, hay fever, anxiety, sinus issues, respiratory issues, skin conditions, inflammation - just to name a few! A series of regular sessions can also result in improved symptom relief.
We offer three salt therapy rooms, which have been designed to offer you a tranquil environment. A private room for those with compromised immune systems and two larger rooms so that you can come along with a friend or group of friends!.
In our larger spaces we also offer special salt therapy sessions incorporating Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Sound Healing.
If you're short on time we run special Express Lunchtime sessions so that you can easily keep on track with your wellness goals.
So...if you're ready to give salt a try all you have to do is wear something comfortable, sit back, relax and breathe in the thousands of ultra fine particles of salt floating through the room.
Let's get salty!
If you want to get yourself back into balance, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals. This therapy can also assist with detoxification; weight loss and improve circulation all while you relax in total comfort.
Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared heat is dry heat, creating a gentle heat which is ultimately more comfortable and more effective.
Experience bliss and beat the stress
Enjoy the euphoria and relaxation from endorphin release, just like after exercising, while you sweat or even meditate in the gentle radiant heat. The therapeutic heat will leave you fully refreshed after each session.
Sweat out the toxins
Sunlighten saunas, with the deepest infrared penetration, can help increase blood flow and perspiration. Sweating helps with eliminating toxic heavy metals, drug residues, and hormone disruptors.
Boost metabolism and fat loss
Our specific near-infrared wavelength stimulates sluggish metabolism and improves fat burning for energy. In addition, increasing core body heat can increase calorie burn, similar to exercise.
Enjoy deep tissue relief
Infrared therapy can increase blood flow and reduce inflammation by penetrating deep into the tissue to relieve aches and pain.
Improve heart health
Infrared therapy can help your heart work better by exercising the heart, reducing blood sugar, and improving circulation. In addition, Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce blood pressure.
Slow down and reverse ageing
Heat-shock responses are like exercises that help your body function as new. In addition, stimulating your metabolism with our near-infrared spectrum can improve skin renewal and slow down ageing.
Boost the immune system
Heating the body from inside can improve the function of the immune system. Therefore, regular Sunlighten sauna use can help reduce the incidences of cold and flu, or even help you recover faster.
Sleep better and wake up more refreshed
The heating and cooling down helps you get ready for sleep and also sleep deeper. Sunlighten saunas also help you relax and calms your mind for a great night of sleep.
Recover better from training
Many professional athletes use Sunlighten saunas to recover from their training and injuries.
" A friend and I tried the salt room for the first time this weekend for a nice relaxing “girly” thing to do together and we loved it. The place had a nice tranquil feel to it and the customer service was exceptional. We were greeted with a very friendly vibe and upgraded from 45 minutes to an hour.
We weren’t sure what to expect in the actual salt room but the chairs were very comfortable and it was quite a unique experience with the salt on the floor as well which added to the experience. The lights were dimmed and this allowed us to still see and chat but then really switch off and relax. You could use this as a catch up with a friend or a great mindfulness relaxation session on top of the salt benefits advertised.
We will definitely be back!
Thanks surfcoast wellness! "
