TANK TIME

DestinAsian - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Pop­u­lar in the ’70s for ex­pand­ing con­scious­ness, float tanks are also go­ing through a re­birth, es­pe­cially in cities where the need for sen­sory and dig­i­tal down­time is more cru­cial than ever. In Mel­bourne, de­signer “sen­sory de­pri­va­tion” pods are open­ing up all across town with the prom­ise to calm the mind and re­duce blood pres­sure as you bask in the feel­ing of weight­less­ness. A rec­om­mended op­tion in the neigh­bor­hood of Prahran is

Be­yond Rest ( be­yon­drest. com.au), where ath­letes go to re­lease mus­cle ten­sion in a co­coon of warm salty wa­ter. Grav­ity Floata­tion Cen­ter ( grav­i­tyfloat.com. au) on North­cote’s High Street is another up­scale venue to de­com­press, as is Rest­house Float Cen­tre ( rest­house.com.au) in the sub­urb of Hamp­ton East.
