Floating: Meet the Technology of Nothingness at Ängsbacka

“Being in a float tank is like relaxing in outer space”

What is the opposite of stress? Relaxing? Peace? Or comfort? It may be all of them, but we suggest that it is Floating. Not the mention the fact that all you do is going into a large tank and let your body relax. Immediately, life becomes even more wonderful. You are happier. Everything is brighter.

It might sound surrealistic, but indeed the zero gravity and distraction-free environment of the Floating tank carries you into a feeling of weightlessness that is cannot be experienced elsewhere. Alongside of its countless physical and mental benefits, floating is the easiest and most effortless way of reaching to an utter relaxation. Your muscles relax completely, your mind reaches to stillness, and eventually you achieve to a deep meditative state that is harder to reach by other means.


The floating tank is completely insulated against sound and light, and your body reaches to ultimate relaxation without sinking thanks to body-temperature, 35% salted water with Epsom salt. This special salt is used for wide range of health benefits such as, soothing muscle aches, easing pain, fighting cold and flu, improving sleep quality, and much more. Emerging from a float is an experience in itself. Senses are sharpened, the mind is refreshed, and the world may appear more vibrant. The feeling is often one of peace, relaxation, happiness, and calm attentiveness.

It is possible to sort some of the proofed-by-studies benefits of floating under the umbrella of two main aspects, mindfulness and wellbeing/health:

The floating session takes 1 hour but the effects last hours or even days, sometimes so much longer! Whether you’ve already had the amazing experience of floating or you are excited to discover, welcome to float your mind away at Ängsbacka’s floating tank—waiting for you at the Annex building!
