This treatment reduces aches and pains whilst helping to improve mental and emotional wellbeing. Floatation therapy is an exciting and unique concept with a number of proven health benefits which can help anyone from stressed out city dwellers, to parents and sports enthusiasts.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is non-invasive, relaxing and healing treatment that provides your body with extra oxygen. The process involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized pod. Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. Sessions within the pod are relaxing and comfortable. You can read a book, listen to a podcast or audio book, watch a movie or simply sleep. ...and to compliment this therapy we have a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMFt) bed in our Hyperbaric therapy room. Indulge yourself in our retreat...Join us...Come & find your quiet new world...
