In such a fast-paced world, it’s important to take time to relax.  If you’ve tried mindfulness or meditation and not got on with it, you could try using a flotation pod manufactured by CapitalSpace customer Leisure Float, based at our Seedbed Centre in Loughton. ‘The purest form of relaxation – like meditation, without the effort’ is how they describe it.  We’ve been finding out more.

Easy relaxation

Flotation tanks are chambers that allow you to feel weightless and free you from sensations such as gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound. They work by providing the perfect amount of water, which includes enough salt to give you the feeling of floating. Tim Strudwick, managing director at Leisure Float, said: ‘We manufacturer floatation pods called i-sopods, a deep relaxation device that we export across the globe - the effects of floatation are very similar to meditation but without the effort. We got into this field in 1993 when we set up our floatation tank centre in London where the public go to rent pods by the hour, and we’ve been building the pods ourselves since 2010.’ 

Transport connections

Leisure Float needed to have an area of operation which could get their flotation tanks to their clients as quickly and as smoothly as possible: ‘We moved into our CapitalSpace business accommodation in early 2016 and have had a very good experience. We initially chose it as the location was just what we needed with good transport connections and the fact that it is all fully serviced. We are all very happy to be here and it’s been a good fit.’ 

Floating to the top

Like the technology in their i-sopods, Leisure Float doesn’t want to stay grounded but instead want to rise to success: ‘Our vision for the next five years is to double the amount of sales that we are currently making. We currently export to 37 countries and are looking forward to raising the awareness of the benefits of floatation pods as new markets and territories open up for us.’ 

With their promise of delivering calm and tranquillity, we’re looking forward to watching Leisure Float achieve their ambitions – and take away even more stress in the world.
