Float (REST) Reduced Environmental Stimulation TherapyModern society has created a situation where the human nervous system lives in a world of near-constant stimulation. Rarely does our brain and body have the opportunity to relax and disconnect from all this stimulation. As a result, chronic physical and mental health conditions have become ubiquitous, with over a quarter of the population suffering from pain, anxiety, depression, and other ailments exacerbated by stress. An emerging new technology known as Floatation-REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy) appears to powerfully counter the deleterious effects of stress in modern life.
To help flatten the curve of the pandemic, Float Cork is closed for the time being.
Our StoryWe aim to provide you with the finest floatation experience in a clean, tranquil, relaxed environment, to help you embrace your dreams, expand your thinking and to help you be your very best.
Stress & Anxiety
A float tank environment reduces most sensory inputs and influences that cause stress and allows you to experience total physical and mental relaxation, which has been found to have some pretty amazing effects! It lets your nervous system have a break. Most notice a steady decline in muscle tension during their floats.
Floating can benefit Arthritis, back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, bursitis, inflammation, and psychosomatic pain. Most experience blissful feelings of peacefulness and serenity that comes with the brain dumping endorphins into the body! It may be the most relaxing thing you have ever done.
Floating allows your body and mind to rest much easier each night if sleeping is an issue. One hour of sleep in the tank can feel like a solid rejuvenating extra long power nap. We encourage sleeping in the tank and do it ourselves on a regular basis.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO A FLOAT?
You don’t need to bring a thing!
We provide towels, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel so you can wash before and after your float. If you have long hair maybe consider bringing your own comb or hair brush, we provide a hair dryer, deodrants, moisturiser etc.
Disposable silicone earplugs are also provided.
We encourage and highly recommend you to float without any swimwear, shorts or any other types of clothing, our float pools are completely private and 100% secure plus you get the most from the sensory experience by eliminating all distractions. It is however entirely up to your own preference, feel free to wear a bathing suit if you wish, however please thoroughly rinse these before entering the pool as sand or other sediment may be lodged in pockets and creases. Thank you!
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE FLOATING?
Try not to shave immediately before your float. Salt water can sting and make your tank time unpleasant.
Remove your contacts prior to floating. Bring your contact case, or wear glasses to make it easy.
Caffeine can make it difficult to relax into the experience. We recommend no caffeine 4 hours or so before your float.
HOW ARE THE FLOAT TANKS KEPT CLEAN?
There is somewhere between 500-750 kilograms of 100% Natural (FFC) Food Grade Magnesium Sulphate Hexahydrate also known as Epsom salt dissolved in each of our float tanks.
The solution is so high in saline that it’s not an environment living microorganism find welcoming. After each session, the entire body of water somewhere between 700-1100 Litres depending on float tank is pumped and filtered through a 3 part filtration and sterilization system, this includes Ultra Violet light and food grade hydrogen peroxide (H202 is a powerful oxidizer and is non toxic to humans at concentration levels we use).
UV is considered the safest most effective system available. It maintains the water’s soft, clean and crystal clear appearance. In addition everyone is required to take a shower before entering the float tank in order to wash off body oil, make up, hair products, etc.
