We have recently been collaborating with a growing local business called City Cave, doing some strategic planning and cash flow forecasting work. We like to get a good understanding of how our clients operate, this lead to our owner and director Patrick having a fairly unique experience last week.
City Cave are a small but expanding local business. They run wellness centres, with their main point of difference being their float tanks. These tanks, or small pools have 45kg of Epsom salts dissolved in them, so a little bit like the red sea, you really do float. The reported benefits of floating in these special tanks include aiding in circulatory, respiratory, digestive, muscular skeletal, and hormonal balance. There is also the ability to turn off the lights and float in complete silence with this sensory deprivation believed to help with stress levels and have other neurological benefits.
Here is what Patrick had to say about his float tank experience!
So I booked in for a float last week, which came as a big surprise to those who know me well. With a big family and busy business, doing absolutely nothing for a whole hour is something I am not at all used to, and visiting a wellness centre is a little different to my usual places to frequent. So I made my booking online and quickly received a confirmation email. I then turned up at the designated time and a young lady took me through to the float room and explained how it all worked. I really wanted to be open to the whole experience so after settling in and checking how everything worked I lay back and tried to empty my mind and enjoy the experience. After laying there and being very relaxed for what I thought must be close to an hour I just had to get up and check my watch – it had been 20 minutes. My second attempt at trying to chill out was more successful and I made it to the 1-hour mark. As I left I really did feel very refreshed and had a bit more spring in my step, I am glad I gave it a go and I would do it again.
