Walking in water
The Nirvana Spa Celestial Pool is a unique environment, offering freedom from the pressures of life. Floatation is a powerful healing therapy, which promotes pain relief, stress relief and healthier skin. As you float, the body lowers its cortisol levels – otherwise known as ‘the stress hormone’.
Get ready for something a little different
We’re constructing a second floatation pool with a strong focus on rehabilitation therapy. The aim is to improve quality of life for people living with pain or discomfort from painful joints, injuries and arthritic conditions.
The healing power of mineralised water became an inspiration to create a completely new and bespoke floatation therapy pool. John Barley, Nirvana Spa’s founder, first saw the therapeutic value of floatation at the Droitwich Spa Hospital where, until 2008, they treated joint pain and injuries in their natural brine pool.
Our new floatation pool will offer curative benefits unavailable anywhere else in the UK. Like our Celestial Pool, the water will be saturated with genuine Dead Sea minerals. Unlike our Celestial Pool, you’ll remain upright, suspended and supported in the water. The mineralised water will keep your body buoyant and will enable safe exercise and movement.
The new pool is great news for those with arthritis, swollen joints, weakened muscles, sport related injuries or mobility problems of any kind. Supported by our own physiotherapists, recuperation will be far quicker and much more achievable than ever before.
Floatation combats the UK’s most common health complaint – stress
The Royal College of General Practitioners recognises the significant benefits of deep relaxation that floatation can bring. Just in case you’re not familiar here are the top three:
A huge benefit of this highly mineralised water is its ability to support the body. By supporting the body and reducing muscle tension it becomes possible to move much more freely and safely, without pain. With easier exercise comes quicker recovery and the opportunity to regain a better level of fitness, without the risks and restrictions (and pain) of land-based exercise.
The 21 essential minerals are easily absorbed through the skin. The minerals have a calming effect on sensory nerve endings. This makes it an ideal treatment for any condition aggravated by stress, such as eczema.
In highly mineralised water, your body is suspended and you feel weightless. Every muscle can fully relax, and you feel almost like you’re dreaming. In this state, the brain releases vast amounts of endorphins, a ‘feel good’ chemical.
Sometimes, this state of relaxation may be profound. Users often fall asleep, with many describing a deep calmness and a relaxed, happy feeling after floatation. People often report that sleep after floatation is deep.
