Couple sink funds into float-tank therapy
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.
