Freedom Float Centre
Let’s be honest, life can get pretty hectic at times. If you feel like you’re on the brink of burnout and need the equivalent of four hours sleep in 60-minutes, check out Burleigh Heads’ Freedom Float Centre. So, what’s the gist? Well, basically you jump inside a giant pod and float for an hour. Sounds simple right? Well, it is. But that’s the point. In this sensory deprivation environment you can finally rest, recuperate and rejuvenate. Every inch of your body is lifted by the salt water and external stimuli is removed so it’s just you and your thoughts for 60 glorious minutes. The float pod is completely safe, sterile and inviting and you have control of your surroundings so if you prefer the light on and door open slightly, that’s quite alright although to get the most out of your time it is recommended that you have the light off and door closed. It takes a while for first timers to properly switch off but once you do, you’ll be addicted to the calm and will float out feeling rested and ready to take on the world. Floating is also incredibly beneficial for mums-to-be to ease some of the extra pent-up pressure on those limbs.
