Water Temple’s community health and wellness is a high priority of ours and we take great pride in ensuring our centre is clean and safe. We have been and will continue to stay up to date on the Coronavirus.
Here is a link to the Australian Government website which is updated daily.
“The virus, CoVID-19, is spread in droplets produced by coughing and sneezing that inhaled by someone within 6 feet. It MAY be spread by touching droplets that fall on surfaces and then that person touches their faces. It is not spread in water, such as float water. Our patrons are more likely to catch this virus while at the grocery store than at the float center”.

What we are doing at Water Temple as precaution, and what you can do as prevention
Firstly, our regular cleaning measures provide a strong defence against any contagious illnesses, as we thoroughly clean everywhere. We disinfect rooms after every session and throughout the day, wipe down handles, light switches, tablets etc. It’s important to note that the high salinity levels of the float pod are inhospitable to bacteria, including microbes and other pathogens, 99.5% of disease can’t survive in this environment.
If you’re feeling run down and have flu like symptoms such as a cough, fever, runny nose, shortness of breath, fatigue/tiredness – these are symptoms of many respiratory illnesses and it would be recommended you visit your GP to discuss.
Also consider Acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine to help lessen the symptoms and aid in a speedy recovery, resting of course is still the best thing you can do, taking Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc and Magnesium also help boost your immune system. Washing your hands frequently is a must and not sharing towels or personal items. Keeping your Wei qi, or your defence system strong is important in the coming winter months and even more so with the coronavirus creating global panic.
Floatation therapy is great for your immunity, as it is one of the best therapies at removing stress from your system. And that alone helps strengthen your body’s ability to fight infections and virus. If you’re concerned about coronavirus or catching any illness, having a strong immune system is your best defence. Please see link to our website and the interview with Flux on Floating and your immune system.
Water Temple and Utopia Health Care will be giving recommendations in the coming weeks on our social platforms sharing practical things we can all do to take care of ourselves, our family and friends. Remember fill you cup first so you can fill others!
Know that Water Temple’s awarding winning service and cleaning standards are higher than ever. All floatation tank water goes through a filtration system as stringent as a 50-metre swimming pool containing 250,000 litres of water – each pod has only 1000 litres. More importantly very little can live or survive in the salt concentration of the float tanks.
