Has Floatopia Sunk?
Growing speculation that the local 'aqua therapy' centre may have closed
The Devonshire Road flotation 'spa', which offered "float tank de-stressing aqua therapy" has not been open for a while. Attempts to reach the management by email and telephone to clarify the position have been unsuccessful.
Floatopia Ltd is listed as 'dissolved' since June 16th on the Companies House register.
Several local people who hold vouchers for floatopia are anxious to clarify the position.
One of only three such facilities in the capital, floatopia was the brain child of Sacha Hemans who, after his first floating experience, gave up his job to start his own floatation rooms which were listed as "a serene and restful haven" from the outside world.
The floatopia experience consisted of lying in a water depth of 25 cm relaxing in a darkened flotation tank. The water is treated with a high concentration of Epsom Salts which produces a density allowing the individual to float naturally and gives a sense of weightlessness.
It claimed to be of benefit for relieving stress and conditions such as arthritis and backache, as well as stimulating sleep, and detoxing the system.
