A Unique Private Serene environment you simply can’t find anywhere else.
Pure R.E.S.T. Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy
Imagine being suspended in a Bath of Epsom Salt, the well-known brand that comes from a place called Epsom in the Uk from a Stream of Saline Water. Well actually it’s not salt as such its Mineral’s, it is Magnesium and when broken down in water it becomes both Magnesium and Sulphate in its compounds. Here in Spain we have found our own Salt Mines and Lakes so the Magnesium is as pure as you can get it with no pollution. In a concentrated form it is to be of a No 1 Health Benefit to our Physical Bodies, and our Skin being the biggest Organ if we can rub in and absorb then we are really making a major difference as it becomes “Raw Skin Medicine”
When the water is heated at a certain temperature (34.1- 34.2 C ) Skin Receptor Neutral and the water is Saturated with 1000 Kg (1 Ton) !!! Of Magnesium the body is not only able to “Float but to Absorb the Minerals. (Sorry but it is not the same as lying in a bath of Epsom Salt, you just cannot get the water so concentrated and you need to be in it for 1 hour and also at the correct temperature maintained). With the Saturated Minerals you are able to float as if you were in the Dead Sea, but without the worry of what is lurking below or the sun beating down on your body. You cannot drown it is perfectly safe. Whilst floating in a darkened room with no other stimuli this creates an illusion of floating in Mid-Air or Space. It has to be the most relaxing form of de stressing as the body will learn to just let go without you even trying too hard, it’s impossible not too!! Free from Gravity and Stress your Brain pumps out Dopamine and Endorphins the body’s own Opiates – Natural Pain Relief but without the toxic effects.
Sounds relaxing right?
Floating in a floatation tank or pod can feel a bit claustrophobic for 1st time floaters so if you have tried it before don’t worry it’s a whole new experience at Alturas Oceanicas. Both Tom and I have created a Pool in the a most beautiful room in which you can take a shower, and in the Privacy of your own Space Float as you like … just a you were when you came into this world and that is what makes it feel even more enjoyable. And upon the Roof Top of where you float you have another Roof Top for Meditation and Relaxation so you can just get some downtime after your float and a light refreshment. This is certainly a Peaceful, Calming Environment that is so unique certainly Romantic for couples. On the Roof Top Terrace you can see over the Old Town into Mojacar Playa and Garrucha watching the Sun Rise or Sun Set. They say if you “Float Together you Stay Together” but this therapy offers more than just simple relaxation or romance for those of you like myself like to indulge.
And for your Peace of Mind …
Even though the Magnesium in itself is Super Cleaning its own rights of purification care is still taken that your environment is Ultra Hygienic. Oceanicas Roof Top Pool constantly filters the water while you float but within an hour after the last float the Pool water has passed through UV (ultra Violet Light and Ozone) three times being Triple filtered.
Here is some additional info & “Benefits of Floatation Therapy:
Magnesium sulphate is a mineral that nearly everyone is deficient in. When you float in a flotation tank, your body absorbs these minerals and your body’s magnesium and sulphate levels increase. This helps to calm your nervous system and enhances your body’s natural ability to heal. In a private pool you can float with no distractions and be sure of the purity of the Mineral that you are floating in we use a very high grade Magnesium from a family owned business just outside of Alicante and proud to say we use local resources.
The deep relaxation state that you enter into when floating helps to reduce stress by lowering cortisol levels. Blood flow is stimulated and endorphins are released. Endorphins are chemicals in the brain that reduce feelings of pain and trigger positive feelings.
Studies have shown that floatation therapy can even help with depression. The endorphins released during a float last beyond the float session itself. You lose Track of where your body ends and where the water begins.
The extreme buoyancy that individuals experience when floating is essentially like experiencing anti-gravity. This allows those with joint or muscle pain much needed relief that they cannot get otherwise.
Pregnant women can benefit from floatation therapy in several ways. Floating relieves pressure from feet and back and offers an escape from the added weight and strain from carrying a baby.
Floating can also help mothers-to-be create a symbiotic sense of connection with their babies. Some women see similarities between floating and the womb—which deepens their connection to their unborn baby.
(Pregnant women should get an okay from their doctor before participating in floatation therapy)
The combination of weightlessness, water temperature, increased blood flow, and endorphins provides relief from migraines.
When the outside world is gone and you can float into Beta (wide awake), Alpha (sleepy), Theta (deep sleep), and Delta (awake) Waves amazing things can happen. The Monks practice for years in order to obtain all 4 but we rarely do in our sleep that is why 2 hours sleep in floatation is as good as a full night’s deep sleep.
If migraines are caused by restricted blood flow, the increased blood flow experienced during a float session may alleviate migraine symptoms and possibly even prevent migraines from starting.
Floating can improve athletic performance by reducing recovery time between intense workouts. This helps athletes train their bodies faster and condition it harder.
Floatation therapy is often recommended by trainers and used by serious athletes. It turns out that when the body is not fighting gravity or constantly taking information in your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal when we don’t have to be elsewhere in our Brains. So we can Super Think and Super Train. No one float is the same as another that is a completely amazing effect it has on the Brain .. You don’t even tell it what to do it just does it naturally.
Flotation therapy has been shown to enhance performance in general. University show enhancement in human performance of scientific creativity, instrument flight performance, and piano performance and more than.

You will receive “the ultimate body and mind Reset” you will feel brighter and sharper than ever before and you will see through “new eyes” it may take a couple of floats before you truly feel you are connecting with the “inner you” if depends on how long you have been locked out of the real you. Give it time and be patient with you, give yourself a pat on the back for trying something new and for being willing to switch from being absorbed with everything around you to being more in tune with you. If you felt lost before believe me you will feel as if you have an altered state of mind and feel the confidence to step out every day with “new beginnings” “Floatation has been around for 40 years and has oodles of published research to back it up so no Mumbo Jumbo here”
I studied floatation in 2014 because I fell in love with it on my first float in Spain. I felt Peace like I have never felt before in my life. I carried on floating and trying new places and my Spirit just lifted and I began believing in dreams again and found the Faith that I had been looking for. I did pray to the Universe later in Recovery to help me to help others to create this balance of life and this peace on earth. I so wanted to give this powerful resource to others.. 7 years ago October 26th I got sober and took the toxins out of my life. I looked solely into my own soul and here I am a much better form of me and with my higher power always working with me. I thank the universe for helping me make my dreams come true and I thank Tom Harvey from the bottom of my heart for believing in me, and thus we have created “Alturas Oceanicas” please come and enjoy you really don’t need a reason to !! Only know it has amazing effects on your “being” both Physically, Mentally & Spiritually.
