The only flotation therapy centre in Christchurch, Cloud9 Float Club offers a truly unique experience to its growing clientele. From the moment you enter this tranquil space, you feel welcomed and relaxed. The purpose built premises is the perfect environment for floating and friendly staff will guide you in how to get the most from your therapy.

Cloud9 owners Tim and Laura Bateman first experienced flotation therapy overseas and were immediately convinced of its benefits for both physical and mental wellbeing. They wanted to share the magic of it with the people of Christchurch and opened their doors in 2016. Float in one of the four state-of-the-art pods, each containing 450kg of Epsom salts - making the water nine times more dense than the Dead Sea! You’ll be floating in a private, individually themed, fully soundproof room, and the experience here is like nothing else.

Sink into blissful nothingness as tranquil calming music plays inside your pod. As you adjust to your float, the music fades. How you spend the rest of your time is up to you. Some use it as an active time to think and get in touch with their creativity, others prefer a passive float and try to switch off entirely or even fall asleep. There’s absolutely no stimulation in the pod. The tranquil environment is something our bodies and minds are not used to, so to really experience flotation therapy it’s best to try it at least twice. First timers might find their mind too busy to reach the full experience.

The benefits of flotation therapy are backed up by science, and include helping to break the cycle of anxiety or stress, provide pain relief and improve sleep patterns. Taking time from your busy schedule to float is not just pampering yourself, it’s filling your tank so you can do more and be the best version of yourself. There’s no time like the present to give it a go!
