Floatation Therapy, Infrared Sauna, Massage & More

Float Space is South Yorkshire’s largest Floatation Tank and Wellness Centre, located just outside of Doncaster, in the market town of Thorne, less than 1 mile from both the M18 and M180 Motorways.

Floatation and Isolation Pods are proven through studies to help with many different issues, from chronic pain to anxiety. 
Constant research is being done to confirm the many other benefits that have been reported over the last 50+ years of REST use, study and research

We currently have 2 Floatation Therapy Rooms, a Massage Therapy Suite and Infrared Sauna.

We are also home to Thorne Health Haven, a community led health hub providing free consultations and subsidised therapies.   

The modern world, where we are always connected to some form of technology is proven to cause numerous mental and physical problems. 

More than ever people’s health is being affected by this and we have created a space where we can help you turn back the clock both on stress and improve mental health, but also helping your body recover or even find relief from pain.  Floatation Therapy is a great way to boost your bodies natural healing process, by entering a restive state with no outside distractions. 

Floating  allows you to completely disconnect yourself from external influence and distraction and find a whole new connection within.  

Promotes Physical Recovery

Floating helps the body to recover and heal from exercise and injury.  It is proven to provide relief from things like chronic back pain and arthritis  as well as decreasing the users perception of pain.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Float tanks allow you to better focus, giving you quicker pathway into meditation and can allow for deeper states of meditation.  This can also enhance meditative states for a period of time afterwards.

Improved Sleep

The act of floating is shown to drastically improve any sleep following a session and over time and regular use promotes regular sleep and healthier sleep patterns.  

Stress & Anxiety Relief

Floating is shown to not only lower Cortisol and Adrenaline levels, but also effectively shuts off the Amygdala, the part of the brain that initiates the ‘Fight or Flight’ response.  Regular Floating can allow the user to control and even conquer their anxiety.

Self Awareness & Connection

Our own modern environment and lifestyle always connected to technology often leaves us disconnected from what is most important, ourselves.   ‘No Time’ is the concept of dedicating a part of your schedule to nothing, other than yourself.  

Physical Recovery
General Wellbeing

Happiness and a greater sense of well-being have both being shown to be one of Floatations greatest benefits.  The post float glow is real, and we love seeing it in our clients after their session.  

Conciousness Exploration & Self Improvement

Floating has been used by many people for gaining new perspectives, overcoming habits and eliminating anxiety and depression.  It also makes users more perceptive to suggestion allowing you to literally reprogram your own mind or to use alongside counselling or hypnotherapy.  It is also an exceptional tool for boosting creativity or for problem solving.


When you become accustomed to the floating experience a deep state of relaxation is found which lasts well beyond the session itself.  Relaxation is what allows improved blood flow and reduces inflammation.

About Floatation Therapy


Whether you’re a newbie to the world of float tank therapy or you’re simply ready to take a step towards improving your health and wellness, we have all the information you need. 

What is Floating or Floatation Therapy?

Known as Sensory Deprivation Therapy or Float Tank Therapy, floating is essentially a way to provide nothingness for your mind and body. 
It is achieved by reducing sensory input as much as possible – Sound, Sight, Smell,  Touch and also the weight of Gravity.
The best way to do this is with the help of an isolation pod, 500 Litres of water as well as 300 Kilogram of Epsom salts kept at exact skin temperature, enclosed in total darkness (If you choose), and total silence.

Floating is essentially a time out for the mind and body, completely disconnecting yourself – away from all the distractions of daily life – to a much deeper state of relaxation.
Deep relaxation that offers physical and mental rest, focus, enhanced recovery, respite, and self exploration.

Why Do People Float?

We have come across many reasons to float and as the amount of research increases so are the number of benefits to be found from Floatation Tank use – here are just a few of the more common: 
Time to yourself to relax and de-stress.  Increase and speed up athletic and muscle recovery.  Enhanced focus and thought processing.   To aid or enhance meditation and mindfulness.   Relief from pain, especially effective with back injuries but also tension related pain, many Fibromyalgia sufferers use floatation therapy to ease their symptoms.   As a tool to aid therapeutic processing or counselling, including PTSD therapy.  

At the very least, Floating is an escape from the modern day world which overwhelms the senses… No phone alerts. No screens. No environmental stress.  Just you, yourself and nothing else.

How Should You Float?

You should treat your floatation experience as your own journey. Your first few floats, you might find yourself losing track of time or even falling asleep or you may find the opposite as some people struggle to allow themselves to fully relax. Don’t worry as this is common and is quite normal as your brain simply does not like a lack of input.  

The more you float, the more you can get from the experience as you become more comfortable in the environment and learn to let go.   It is often a good idea to enter with a meditation plan, or simply a work or life subject that you would like to focus on. Many people keep a float diary or journal, and update it afterward to help capture thoughts, ideas and realizations.

However you spend your time in the tank we say you should give it a few tries before you decide to continue floating or even take it to the next level with a Float Tank in your own home.
