“As a 6’4”, 18 and a half stone (+), bearded former rugby player I was a little bit reticent before I arrived for my first float.
Would the float pod be long enough? Yes, very much so and in fact I laid out with my arms above my head without touching the end.
Would a man of my ‘modest’ stature actually float? Yes again, in fact the feeling of weightlessness was instant upon laying out in the water.
The whole experience was relaxing from the moment I walked through the door, from taking my shoes off and walking on the soft carpet, the music, the massage chair (wow!), the float itself (more on that in a few lines time) to the organic tea and sorbet at the end. If I could choose one word to some up my experience, I would say lovely.
As for the float itself, it’s difficult to describe without experiencing it. The sensation of weightlessness is extremely relaxing to the extent that old injuries, aches and pains all vanished when I was in there. Plus the experience of peace in our fast paced world, where time seemed to stand still in a good way was the icing on the cake.
I can’t wait to go back!”
“Really interesting experience. It takes about 20 minutes to fully relax so you have plenty of time to find a position that suits you. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who has an interest.
Make sure you leave time at the end of your float to chill out with a nice cup of fruit tea afterwards. I’d suggest clearing 2 hours of your day.”
“On my arrival, I was made to feel very welcome and the warming feeling while you sit and wait is just perfect. I really didn’t know what to expect but once you sit in the massage chair, you seem to drift off. Then once into the Pod Room you feel relaxed even more, with the gentle music playing and the led lighting you slowly drift off.
Then your time is up, wondering where the time went..
Im sorry my review is late, but will be booking again soon.”
“Had my first float session today, read a lot of reviews and information about it but still wasn’t quite sure what to expect but what a great experience it was! As soon as my friend and I walked in the door we felt relaxed (taking your shoes off at the door instantly relaxes you!! It’s the first lovely touch of many!)
We both suffer with chronic pain illnesses (ME and fibromyalgia) and were really hoping it would help ease our pain even just for that hour as we are never without pain and it did! Would recommend this to anyone that suffers with any kind of pain.
We booked 2 more sessions and we can’t wait!!”
“What an absolute wonderful experience. My first time in a floatations tank. Can’t recommend it enough, the most restful hour I have ever had. Thank you so very much
Cathy for your professionalism, and being so attentive, made the experience all the more enjoyable. Would love to do it again.”
“We treated ourselves to our first float on NYE. The experience was absolutely great. From the minute you walk through the door you are warmly welcomed. You start the session by going in the massage chair which is an experience in itself. Next in to the pods which are so relaxing an hours goes so quickly. All you need to do is turn up as everything is supplied, nothing has been overlooked. This place is absolutely spotlessly clean. We could not fault it and will definitely be back and would recommend it.
My husband said his back feels better too. Money well spent.”
“A fantastic experience. Kind and welcoming front of house, clean and well equipped showers, toiletries and hair care facilities.
A wonderfully relaxing experience that I am definitely going to repeat.”
“First float yesterday.
Was wonderful felt great afterwards.
Lovely place clean and enjoyed massage before.”
“Thought I’d treat myself and other half to a Christmas Eve treat… my son kept telling me to book as I suffer with anxiety and wow so glad I did…
I didn’t feel as relaxed as I hoped for but I’m hoping this will come with future sessions.
Very tranquil, my only advice would be an extra towel for hair would be handy especially for us females.
Merry Christmas & Happy new year!”
“Floating is something I have always wanted to do & my first experience didn’t disappoint!!!
I must admit, initially I was a little apprehensive and found it a bit difficult to relax (both physically & mentally) but it wasn’t long before I felt myself drifting away into a state of tranquility and I’m sure it will become much easier on future visits (now knowing exactly what to expect).
I would definitely recommend Float!
A relaxing & comfortable environment from the moment you enter, with friendly & helpful staff and most, if not all, you could need catered for (from towels, toiletries, hairdryers, hair straighteners to herbal teas & refreshing sorbets).
As lovely as it is, the staff welcomed feedback and little ideas for improvements were being taken on board/ put into place to make Float even better for the future!
Can’t wait to return to this little haven of peace & tranquility in the New Year!!!”
“Just had a great time at my first float. Wasn’t sure what to expect but it was a great experience. The staff were very welcoming and explained the process well.
The massage chair is a good way to start the relaxation process.
The pods themselves are bigger than I expected. The water is lovely and warm and you are able to change the light colours or turn them off completely.
I’m pretty sure I fell asleep during the session and feel completely relaxed now. The salty water has also made my skin feel really soft.
The premises are finished to a high standard and provide everything needed post floating (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hair dryer and ghd’s). The fruit tea and sorbet afterwards is a nice finishing touch.
Would definitely go again!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed my first float session on 27th December. Everything was so clean and I had a very relaxing time. Wasn’t sure what to expect but felt very relaxed from the moment I walked in. I was greeted by Ross who made me feel very welcome. I loved the massage chair prior to having the float experience and would have loved a little longer in the chair. Sorbet and cup of tea at the end was lovely to. I have just booked another 7 sessions so roll on my next visit at the beginning of February. Look forward to seeing you again.”Sharon Robinson
“Wow truly amazing! Was lovely feeling and came out feeling completely rejuvenated. Will be booking so many more. Very clean and all the products and equipment you could need. Debbie the host was very friendly and knowledgable I can’t wait to go back 🙂 Well done for coming to Norwich.”Sara Basey-Fisher
“OMG – This was truly amazingly relaxing. Cannot really describe how it makes you feel except for absolutely fantastic after . It’s a cozy professional place with everything provided – you don’t have to take anything with you -It’s well worth the money for a treat once a month – cannot wait to go back and do it again. I very much recommend this to everyone. Everybody should experience this amazing feeling of floating.
Well done to the owners and organisers”
“Oh my gosh, what an amazing experience!! Quality customer care, gorgeous environment. I FEEL AMAZING.
I will be returning as soon as possible.”
