Water Temple is an isle of calm and a place of rest.

Our belief is that floatation therapy is a simple yet powerful tool, which can benefit anyone who lays in our dream pods. From the moment you enter our Melbourne premises in High Street Armadale, you?ll start to feel relaxed and far away from the outside world. Free from all sensation of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound, a float tank experience will conserve and redirect vast amounts of natural physical and mental energy.

Benefits of Floatation Therapy

The ultra-deep relaxation of floating resets your body’s hormonal and metabolic balance while strengthening resistance to, and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.

While the benefits of floatation therapy are as diverse as the people who love it, some of the most common include:


Sometimes your body requires rest from all it is asked to do. Floatation therapy provides an environment where your body is free from the harmful forces of gravity. Epsom salts, containing a high concentration of magnesium, have been used for centuries to soothe pain and muscle strains, as well as to draw toxins from the body. There is no pressure on your joints or spine, and the result is that you are fully able to relax while healing areas of your body that might normally be painful. Magnesium is also known to be highly efficient at curing sleeping disorders such as insomnia and restless-leg syndrome.


Sensory deprivation allows your mind to reset and achieve a truly focused level of concentration. In a float tank you can reach such a state, so that creativity becomes heightened, and your brain can process and analyse information more constructively. You?ll emerge from our float centre with a clearer mindset and more focused thoughts.


Your spiritual floatation journey begins as you enter the Theta brainwave state, similar to drifting towards sleep in a dream-like state. With no distractions from the outside world, you can experience deep and profound relaxation, while your brain stays alert and releases a vast amount of endorphins. Floatation therapy has been proven to help individual experience extended periods of Theta brainwave activity quickly, which usually requires hours of meditation to achieve.

Our Floatation Pods

Inside the float pod is 600 kg of premium magnesium salts and 1000 liters of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).

The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t.

The buoyancy created by the dense Epsom-salt solution effectively removes the effects of gravity on the body and brings the individual close to an experience of total weightlessness.

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 by a cushion of silky skin-temperature liquid.
