Meet the Team at Zero Gravity Float Spa


Simon initially floated to wind down and sleep better, but he soon discovered it was also a powerful tool for self-development and meditation. He is passionate about sharing these benefits with others. Simon enjoys practicing Jiu Jitsu, yoga, running and hiking in the mountains.




Chris initially turned to float therapy to relieve his back pain. As he started floating regularly, he noticed the tranquility he achieved during his sessions carried over into his everyday life. When he’s not floating, you’ll find Chris tinkering with his gaming PC or enjoying a good book.


Retired surgeon Graeme developed chronic pain in his neck after nearly 40 years of standing bent over at the operating table. After Simon convinced him to try floating, Graeme’s neck was pain-free for several days. He now floats weekly and continues to benefit from the therapy.


Hannah is passionate about alternative methods to improve mental well-being and finding ‘me time.’ Floating provides her with the perfect opportunity to relax and switch off, as well as recover from long runs. When not floating, she enjoys running, hiking, and baking treats in the kitchen.


During her floats, Anna finds that meditating and practicing breathwork allow her to achieve a profound sense of bliss, which comes naturally to her as she was raised in a holistic family. Outside of her sessions, Anna can be found enjoying sailing, climbing, and learning new skills to expand her knowledge.


Polly’s need for reduced sensory input and love of long baths lead her to float tanks. She found that the effects were like a full body massage and stepping into a new skin without the analytical brain, studying movement and techniques she naturally does when receiving body work. A rest for the brain and the body! When not floating Polly’s passions are creative and nature driven.


Helen floats to enhance her meditation practice and to create space for her creative flow. Outside of the spa, Helen is on path of Divine Feminine Embodiment where she loves to do yoga, Kundalini dance and create beautiful rituals to enhance her spiritual lifestyle.


Sammi sets the temperature higher for her float sessions so it feels like a bath and enjoys the feeling of the mind feeling reset after a float session. Outside of floating, Sammi enjoys walking her dog, cooking, yoga, writing and enjoys studying about skincare, psychology and holistic well-being.

The Science behind Floatation Therapy: Reducing Brain Workload through Sensory Deprivation

Floatation Therapy is based on the intriguing theory that nearly 90% of the brain’s workload is attributed to the effects of external environmental stimuli, such as gravity, temperature, touch, light, and sound. Interestingly, even during sleep, the mind remains active by processing signals from various parts of the body that come into contact with the bed, covers, and changes in temperature, as well as auditory and gravitational cues. This is why floatation therapy, with its reduction in external stimuli, has been found to be a powerful tool for achieving deep relaxation and meditative states.
