Overview
More
The Float Spa is a health and wellness centre located in central Hove. We have a wide range of complementary therapies including meditation, life coaching, reiki, reflexology, massage, the one we are most unique for is floatation therapy. Floatation is a practice where you float effortlessly in a special pod of Epsom Salt water. Without the constant noise of analysing the world around you, your body lowers its levels of cortisol (which is the main chemical component of stress). Your brain releases elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins. Your muscles, joints, and bones take a well-deserved break. We also have a yoga and pilates studio with a range of classes for beginners to advanced, as well as having children yoga for 5-10 year olds.

Fantastic staff, a really relaxing atmosphere, great yoga teachers. Good value for money as well as being flexible as to the way in which one can attend classes. I really enjoy my visits, and intend to keep going back as often as I can!

I have never asked. But they are very helpful so ask them. I found the water temperature fine and I do like very hot baths.
