The Float Spa is one of Brighton & Hove’s leading destination for health and wellness. Offering state of the art floatation pods as well as a range of complementary therapies, yoga and meditation classes, The Float Spa is the ultimate choice for improving your mental and physical wellbeing.

The Float Spa is described as a ‘haven in Hove’ as it offers absolute peace and tranquillity to the people of Brighton and Hove. With state of the art floatation pods as well as a range of massage therapies, yoga and chiropractic care, The Float Spa is the ultimate choice for improving your mental and physical wellbeing.

It is situated on Third Avenue in central Hove, just metres away from Hove Lawns and the famous Brighton and Hove shoreline.  Facilities include private float rooms complete with personal showers, luxurious therapy rooms, a relaxation and refreshment area and the spacious ground-level studio for classes and workshops.

Their market-leading float pods the i-sopid are the biggest on the market. There’s no need to worry about claustrophobia, the lid opens quickly and easily, you choose whether to have the pod light on or off, you get in and out whenever you like. You are always in complete control, just lie back and experience weightlessness as well as a complete break from external stimuli so the mind and body can completely relax.

What is Floatation?

Through floating effortlessly in a special pod of water saturated with Epsom Salts, and by removing all external sensory inputs, floatation allows for complete relaxation of the body and quieting of the mind.

As you float, your body’s cortisol levels decrease – this is the main chemical component of stress - and your brain releases elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins which are both feel good hormones. Floating can:

  • Relieve pain

  • Improve sleep and promote deep rest

  • Speed up rehabilitation from injury

  • Help to change ingrained behaviour (such as addictions, phobias and fears)

  • Reduce stress, anxiety and depression

  • Enhance learning and encourage creativity

Your Floatation Experience

The Float Spa supplies everything you need during your floatation visit, including towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and earplugs, as well as a vanity room equipped with hairdryers, so you can leave your session looking as great as you feel.  Sounds are played during the beginning and end of your float session to help you relax into the experience and gently alert you that it is coming to an end.  Every pod comes equipped with a light you can leave on or turn off, an inflatable support for your neck if you find it hard to get comfortable and a spray bottle of water to clear your face of salty water.

Enjoy a free home-made sorbet and herbal tea in the relaxation area afterwards to refresh and rejuvenate you after your float. You should allow at least 90 minutes for your floatation experience, although you’re welcome to stay longer to relax and chat with the team.
