(ECNS) -- Floatation therapy, also known as sensory deprivation therapy, allows people to float effortlessly in a tank or pod. It helps people reach a state of tranquillity.
Andreas Martin, a Swede, and his younger brother Theodor brought the experience from Stockholm to Shanghai. They opened a Swedish floatation spa in Shanghai.
Designed for city dwellers who are seeking to improve sleep quality, the spa enables them to completely relax. The two brothers believe that living in a fast-paced metropolis like Shanghai, it is necessary for people to relax by floating.
Floating therapy is a common decompression method abroad that allows people to emerge in the zero-gravity state of both body and mind.
The floating cabin blocks the light and sound outside. When floating, the body, salt water and air inside the tank all rest at 35 degrees Celsius, and this equilibrium creates a relaxed feeling of weightlessness.
Deep relaxation brought by this therapy has been proved to be effective to reduce tension, pain, stress and fatigue.
