Your journey to discovering your inner peace and reconnecting with yourself begins as soon as you enter our foray. A magnificent chandelier, custom-made for us by Healsville Glass Blowing, helps to turn our facility into a sanctuary. The breathtaking piece truly represents the Water Temple, as some of the glass drops containing water-filled air bubbles and when touched, the sound will even remind you of a place of worship.

The team at Water Temple wish to share with you their knowledge of all the benefits of floatation therapy and are there to support you in your float experience. We tailor as much as possible to your needs, float temperature, audio preferences and lighting and time spent in the dedicated after-float space where you can allow yourself to rest, re-set and recover both physically and mentally.

We are passionate about how vital water is to your body, as well as our planet. This enthusiasm about water extends out of our floatation centre as well. As sea guardians to the Australian Marine Conservation Society, you’ll be helping us care for our oceans and marine life every time you float.

Dr Mychelle Whitewood

Founder and Director of Utopia Health Centre, Mychelle is a fully qualified and registered Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with over 20 years experience. Passionate about the benefits of TCM for maintaining overall wellbeing and for correcting a range of health disorders and disease, Mychelle supports individuals to heal, evolve and follow their destiny. Floatation therapy is a wholly natural approach, free from all stimuli to benefit your health and wellbeing.

Mychelle opened up Water Temple as it felt like a natural progression and extension of supporting people in their healing journey. “Over time as a practitioner the most common issue people come to seek your services is because they suffer from emotional or physical pain often caused by stress or fatigue. Floatation therapy is one of the few therapies to nourish the whole being of a person, allowing the space and time to reset the brain.”

Mychelle’s unique combination of skills, experience, expertise and understanding of the interconnections between physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing delivers a unique and comprehensive treatment experience.
