Do you ever feel like really getting away from everything for an hour or two? Just losing yourself in your own world where the phones are not ringing, demands are not being put on you, there is no noise and you can just indulge in some inner peace and tranquility? Or do you suffer from aches and pains and have trouble finding any relief no matter if you are sitting, standing or lying down?

If you answered yes to either of these questions then we have very good news for you. Thanks to a company called Thaisolate very soon Koh Samui will be home to two imported flotation tanks that will give you the opportunity to enter another world, recharge your batteries, meditate, get rid of aches and pains, improve your creativity, improve your sleep patterns and insomnia and help you get over jet lag.

floatation tank 2Thaisolate are the first and, at present, the only specialized float center in Thailand. Everything they do is focused on the floatation experience. Their goal is to create the first floating community in South East Asia and share all the incredible physical and mental benefits associated with floatation with as many people as possible.

So what is a floatation tank, well it is a pod with water mixed with 600kg of Epson salt, a highly buoyant combination that allows you to enjoy zero gravity. The liquid and air are set to body temperature. Spending time in a floatation tank removes all external stimuli and you will float weightlessly without sight, sound, hot, cold, left right, up or down. Here you will be able to become a floating consciousness with nothing left but the self thus enabling deep thoughts, powerful realizations, heightened creativity, total relaxation and true peace. Here you can spend an hour, two hours or four hours.

You can wear swimwear if you like but enjoying the experience naked is recommended. Don’t worry the filters ensure that the tank is immaculately clean hygienic ready for the next user and high levels of magnesium sulfate (Epson salts) provide and atmosphere in which bacteria cannot survive.

floatation tank 1To really lose yourself it is a good idea to indulge in some sensory deprivation and although floating in a tank in the dark with no sound may sound claustrophobic in fact it is the total opposite and gives you a feeling of floating in an endless space. If you find that rather too intimidating then you can enjoy the experience with lights and music and if that is still more than you are ready to experience then simply keep the lid up and just enjoy the sensation of floating.

Of course the door opens from the inside, there is an alarm button if you find the feeling a little overwhelming and you can control the lights yourself. You can also chose whether you have music for the duration of your floating time or not by just telling the staff before you get in. For those who would like to find their own space the lights normally fade after about five minutes followed by the music as you drift off into your own private space.

The Thaisolate team will be on hand, before, during and after your experience, to help you, guide you and share your experience with you. The centre will be open from noon until 9pm and is located between Macro and Tesco on the Tesco side, the opening date May 14th
