Why Floating Alone is True Sensory Deprivation

As the UK’s leading floatation therapy centre for over 30 years, we have perfected the experience from start to finish. At Floatworks, we are committed to providing the best possible experience for our customers. However, one thing we don’t offer is two-person floating pods, and here’s why:

1. Individual Experience:

Float therapy is a deeply personal experience that allows individuals to disconnect from external stimuli and focus inward. Introducing another person into the pod would disrupt this individual experience and defeat the purpose of sensory deprivation.

2. Hygiene and Sanitation:

Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment is paramount in our centres. Introducing a second person into the same pod would create challenges in terms of cleanliness and sanitation. Each pod is meticulously cleaned and sanitised between sessions to ensure the safety and well-being of our customers.

3. Safety Concerns:

Floating in a pod requires a certain level of mindfulness and awareness to prevent accidental injuries, such as bumping into the walls of the pod. Introducing another person into the pod increases the risk of accidental collisions and could potentially compromise the safety of both individuals.

4. Customised Experience:

Each individual has unique needs and preferences when it comes to float therapy. By offering single-person pods, we can cater to the specific requirements of each client, whether they prefer complete darkness, ambient music, or complete silence during their session.

5. Privacy and Comfort:

Float therapy often involves a sense of vulnerability as individuals are left alone with their thoughts and sensations. Introducing another person into the pod would diminish the privacy and comfort that many clients seek during their sessions.

The Importance of Being Alone

While we understand the appeal of sharing the float experience with a friend or loved one, we believe that maintaining the integrity of the individual float experience is essential for maximising the benefits of float therapy. By offering single-person pods, we can ensure that each customer receives the undivided attention and personalised experience they deserve.

At Floatworks, we are dedicated to providing a serene and rejuvenating environment where individuals can escape the stresses of daily life and reconnect with themselves. We invite you to experience the transformative power of float therapy in our single-person pods and discover the profound benefits for yourself.
