FLOAT Co. 漂浮岛


Tens of thousands of people go to float at FLOAT Co. Shanghai and Hong Kong for deep relaxation, deep sleep, sport recovery, pain relief, deep meditation, and recharge, reset and recovery of their mind and bodies. 

Cold plunge lovers can now do the equally amazing Fire & Ice (Sauna & Ice Bath) in the heart of Shanghai as well.

The Science Behind Floatation

Floatation was invented by Dr. John C Lilly in the 1950s as a postwar mind and body recovery project of the National Institute of Mental Health of the USA.

Dr. Lilly's career spanned the worlds of physician, neuroscientist, psychoanalyst, psychonaut, philosopher, writer and inventor, and he is regarded as one the greatest subconsciousness research experts.


Floatation involves floating in a water-filled sensory deprivation tank, also called a floatation tank or isolation tank.

Float tanks are designed to cut out outside stimuli like fluctuations in:

  • Sound

  • Light

  • Temperature

The darkened silence can help the mind to become calmer and quieter, which may be helpful for relieving stress and anxiety.

The tank is filled with warm water saturated with Epsom salt, which gives the water buoyancy, allowing you to float effortlessly with zero gravity.

The salty water is heated to match the temperature of your body.

The Benefits of Floatation

FLOAT Co. 漂浮岛 membersfind regular floating brings them help with:

  • De-stressing

  • Anxiety Relief

  • Deep Sleep

  • Sports Recovery

  • Pain Relief

  • Deep Meditation

  • Removing Negative Sentiments

  • Mind & Body Reset

  • Enhanced Learning & Problem-Solving Capabilities

  • Enhanced Creativity

How To Choose 30-min vs. 60-min Floats?

New floaters can start with a shorter 30-minute float to get their mind and body gradually used to it. Regular floaters sometimes use 30-minute floats to save time and yet get a lot of benefits out of it. 

Meanwhile, 60-minute floats are more popular with majority of floaters; the longer, the more you float, the more benefit you will enjoy.

After three floats, lots of people just fall in love with floating!

Alternating ice baths and saunas achieves better results, improving energy levels and is popular for sports recovery.
