Theta refers to a state of mind where brain activity slows almost to the point of sleep; a trance-like state typified by heightened receptivity and creative inspiration. The brand new Theta State Float Center claims to induce this deep level of relaxation with its two futuristic float pods and two float rooms.

Both types of chamber are soundproof and lightproof, filled with around 25 centimeters of dense, skin-temperature Epsom saltwater, which allows you to float effortlessly on the surface (just like the Dead Sea), removing all body pressure points in the process.

We just gave it a go and came away feeling like our office-stricken bodies had been given a good stress-relieving massage. Others talk of more hallucinatory experiences. Everyone reacts differently, part-owner Annile Alexander tells us.

As part of the center’s grand opening, a 60-minute float is B1,950 and they have an introductory buy-2-get-1-free deal. Memberships are also available.

Theta State Float Center, 88/1, 24th Avenue Mall, Sukhumvit Soi 24, 02-261-7943. Open Tue-Sun 10am-10pm.
