In Altrincham, there are two extraordinary experiences that, when combined, create the ultimate relaxation and massage journey. Float tank sessions and massage treatments complement each other seamlessly, providing a harmonious blend of physical and mental rejuvenation. We will explore the remarkable synergy between these two therapies, uncovering why they are the perfect pair for achieving deep relaxation and maximizing the benefits of a massage in Altrincham.

Float Tank Sessions: Laying the Foundation for Relaxation

Float tank sessions, also known as sensory deprivation or isolation tanks, provide a unique opportunity to disconnect from the outside world and embark on a profound relaxation journey. Let’s explore how float tank sessions lay the foundation for ultimate relaxation:

Sensory Calmness

By effortlessly floating in a buoyant saltwater solution, your body experiences weightlessness, relieving pressure on joints and muscles. This weightless state promotes a deep sense of physical relaxation.

Mental Tranquility

The enclosed environment of a float tank minimizes external distractions, allowing your mind to enter a serene state of calmness. It helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and mental fatigue, fostering a profound sense of relaxation.

Enhanced Mind-Body Connection

Float tank sessions provide an opportunity for introspection, self-reflection, and mindfulness. The sensory deprivation environment amplifies your awareness of bodily sensations, helping you establish a deeper mind-body connection.

Benefits of Epsom Salt

Epsom salt’s magnesium content works to soothe overactive muscle contractions, easing discomfort and promoting muscle relaxation.

Massage Treatments: Amplifying the Benefits of Relaxation

After experiencing the tranquility of a float tank session, indulging in a massage treatment takes relaxation to new heights. Altrincham is home to skilled therapists who offer various massage techniques to amplify the benefits of relaxation:

Muscle Rejuvenation

Float tank sessions alleviate physical tension, and a massage further enhances the process by targeting specific areas of muscle tightness. Skilled therapists employ techniques like Swedish, deep tissue, or hot stone massages to alleviate muscle soreness, release knots, and promote overall rejuvenation.

Stress Relief

Combining float tank sessions with a massage is a potent stress-relieving combination. The therapeutic touch of a massage stimulates the release of endorphins, fostering a deep sense of relaxation and reducing stress levels.

Improved Circulation

Float tank sessions and massage treatments both enhance blood circulation, which promotes the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and organs. Improved circulation aids in the removal of toxins, speeds up muscle recovery, and boosts overall well-being.

Calming The Nervous System

As the Epsom Salts help to relax the muscles, and switch the bodily systems from fight and flight to rest and digest, the muscular tension is easier to relieve after calming the nervous system.

Located in Altrincham, these two complementary therapies thrive. We have experienced therapists who specialize in a variety of massage treatments. Our commitment to relaxation and rejuvenation makes it an ideal destination for those seeking a harmonious blend of tranquility and therapeutic experiences.


Zero Gravity Float Spa, the haven of relaxation and massage, offers an irresistible combination of float tank sessions and massage treatments. The serene escape of float tank sessions lays the foundation for deep relaxation, while the therapeutic touch of a massage amplifies the rejuvenating benefits.

Together, they create an immersive experience that targets both the body and mind, allowing you to achieve a state of profound tranquility. When in Altrincham, embrace the synergy between these transformative therapies and unlock the gateway to ultimate relaxation and enhanced massage benefits.

When we tell people about floating one of the main worries people have is potentially feeling claustrophobic.

However, claustrophobia should not deter you from floating.  The tanks are much bigger than people expect, imagine a king sized bed with roughly a meter and a half above you.  In fact as you relax inside the tank it can feel as if there is an infinite space around you as if you are floating out on the ocean.

Here are some important points to note if you are worried about feeling claustrophobic:

  1. The tank door is a large lid above your head which can be left open for the entire session if you like.  It is very light to the touch and you could open and close it easily with one finger.  The door does not lock or close on you so you are completely in control the whole time.
  2. On the left hand side of you is a big button which controls the lighting inside the tank.  We have many customers who leave the lights on for the duration of their float and this is completely fine.  Although this isn’t complete sensory deprivation you will still get all the physical benefits of the float and enjoy the sensation of feeling weightless.  The colours are set to oscillate through a full spectrum which is very beautiful and can help you relax more.
  3. If you do decide to switch the lights off and close the door you will still be able to easily orient yourself by stretching out and touching the sides of the tank around you.  Being able to feel where you are in space can help you feel more grounded and calm inside the tank.
  4. There is 10 minutes of music at the beginning of the float and 5 minutes of music at the end to bring you in and out of the experience.  This means you don’t need to keep track of time and you can even fall asleep in there if you like!  However, if you would prefer to have music playing for the duration of the float just ask us to change the settings for you at reception before you go in.

People float for many reasons but the main one is that it is deeply relaxing.  Just remember you are fully in control of the experience the whole time!

Still unsure?  Why not pop in, we’ll be happy to show you around.  Just call ahead so that we can ensure a tank is free.
