It is difficult for most of us to find enough leisure time in today's hectic world. Even when you're lying on the bed enjoying a deep-tissue massage, your mind still wanders to the rest of the things you could have been doing with that hour (you know it's true). The float pod, filled with water and heated between 34.8°C to 35.2°C, takes relaxation to a whole new level: it forces you to be patient and, after about 20 minutes, you find yourself really letting go – utter bliss.
