Wellness Centres that Provide Floatation Therapy in Cape Town

Wellness Centres That Provide Floatation Therapy, Cape Town

Immerse yourself, literally, in the tranquillity of floatation therapy. The synonymous name for the concept is sensory deprivation. However, I don’t blame you if you have not heard of these terms yet! Floatation therapy is something rather nuanced in the wellness industry. It leverages the restorative power of magnesium to boost physical well-being and support inner wellness.

This therapy reduces stress and anxiety, relieves aches, improves sleep, increases focus and creativity, and elevates dopamine and endorphins, among many other benefits. So, let’s escape the hustle and bustle of Cape Town and explore the therapeutic benefits of floatation tanks that provide a sensory escape where gravity fades away. Let’s look at the three centres that provide floatation therapy, Cape Town, and why it has become a sought-after treatment.

Float, Then Gloat

Since the concept of floatation therapy was introduced and studied by Dr John C Lilly in the mid-1950s, the benefits of this sensory deprivation method have become increasingly apparent. As a result, the therapy has become more mainstream in recent times, and it is something that everyone should at least try once in their life.

Think back to when you were floating peacefully on summertime water, looking up towards the sky, ears submerged, and all that your heart is the soft hum of your silenced thoughts. Then suddenly, you start sinking, growling at the realisation that floating is not always that easy, but man, it feels good! If you’re claustrophobic, don’t worry! Floatation pods can be left open or closed, so they can be managed even if you are dealing with a phobia. So, come on, let’s go float, then gloat about it to everyone, shall we?

Hi there! I’m Megan, an absolute lover of words, literature, books, stories, anything that has to do with writing, reading, imagining. Because of my passion, I decided to make writing my life, and with that, I decided to study BA Languages at the University of Pretoria and am happy to report that I made my dream come true by graduating and becoming a travel writer. During my final year I wrote for my campus newspaper, the PDBY, where I learned to trust my writing voice. Now, as I sit here writing my petit little bio, I feel more in love with writing than I’ve ever been. Turns out, like much of my personality, my writing can equally showcase both the calm and put-together, as well as the crazy.
