Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Ad­vanced flota­tion-tank ther­apy has come to Ex­mouth with the open­ing of what is be­lieved to be the first such tank in town.

Ex­mouth res­i­dents Mike and Nikki Ka­vanagh opened new flota­tion tank busi­ness Float Away Nin­ga­loo ear­lier this month af­ter two years of de­vel­op­ment, fol­low­ing Mr Ka­vanagh’s dis­cov­ery of the ther­apy as a treat­ment for back pain years ago. Mr Ka­vanagh said de­spite it only re­cently gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity in WA, flota­tion-tank tech­nol­ogy had been around for about 50 years in other parts of the world, in­clud­ing his na­tive Bri­tain, and was a pow­er­ful form of phys­i­cal and men­tal ther­apy.

“Float tanks are an amaz­ing way for peo­ple to de-stress and switch off from the dis­trac­tions of ev­ery­day life,” he said. “We be­lieve it will tap in re­ally well to both the lo­cal and tourist mar­ket.”

Mr Ka­vangh said this was “cut­ting-edge” tech­nol­ogy for Ex­mouth which pro­vided tourists with an­other op­tion for a re­lax­ing hol­i­day. “In Ex­mouth there’s no real com­plete spa ex­pe­ri­ence . . . and this is an­other step to­wards it,” he said.
