About Calm Water

Calm Water Floatation Centre is a unique concept in the relaxation, leisure and complimentary therapies sector. We are a dedicated floatation tank centre providing Floatation Therapy or REST (Restricted Environment Stimulus Therapy) at an affordable price, in an accessible and stylish location and, the first of its kind to be located in the Midlands region.

Floating weightlessly your body is perfectly supported by a cushion of silky, skin-temperature Epsom Salt solution. Freed from all sensation of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound you conserve and redirect vast amounts of natural physical and mental energy, and with little to do, the brain begins to slow down and relax....Every single muscle in the body is allowed to totally relax, with ear plugs in and, if you wish, the tank’s interior lights off, the quietness and the darkness allow the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation possible.
