I suffer from fibromyalgia and since going to Time to Float Stafford regularly for a sauna and float I have found my aches and pains have subsided so much that I can do without painkillers most of the time.
The Staff look after you extremely well and are happy to answer any questions you may have
The place is private clean and safe and I highly recommend it
Give it a try treat a loved one or treat yourself we all deserve some relaxation

Hi Melissa, firstly thank you for your kind words, and for raising awareness of how Floatation really helps Fibromyalgia sufferers to reduce their pain levels. You've clearly seen how much benefit you've received, just by adding in fortnightly sessions. It's also great to see that the sauna heat helps as well, and look forward to seeing you again very soon...

Came here today not really knowing what to expect, we were given a voucher as a Christmas gift. Beth was very friendly and talked us through everything we needed to know. If you have never floated before and are thinking of giving it a try i definitely recommend it. The time in the pod seemed to go by so quickly. It’s extremely relaxing once you find a comfortable position. The place is spotlessly clean. We will definitely be returning.
An added bonus was a wonderful Swedish massage afterwards by Bianca. I feel totally relaxed and pampered...heaven! 😀😀😀

I have regular flotation sessions at Time to Float Stafford
It helps my posture as i have a fractured coccyx and pelvis. It is pain relieving, supremely relaxing and helps me to sleep well.
Always a 5 star experience

I had planned and researched floatation for about a year before heading here, so it wasn't so much a shock for me as it could be for others.

The whole experience is so wonderful you almost forget you're in the same world as everybody else. From entering the reception area, to having a chat with the friendly owner, to going through to the floatation rooms, everything is delicately prepared and you are well informed of your time there throughout.

The floatation itself takes a little time to get used to (about 5 minutes) but once you're floating it is very easy to disappear into the nothingness of the time and space around you. I found calm within the pod, which for me was one of the reasons I started researching deprivation tanks to begin with.

A tip for anyone new to this, it is near impossible to drown, the salts keep you floated throughout. Also, if you're claustrophobic, the pod lid can stay open. For me the lights and music off was perfect.

Worth a visit? Yes, and I have booked again for next month.

Recommend if looking for easy undisturbed relaxation therapy. No other isolating conditions quite like it.

If you've not tried flotation before then this would be a very good place to go to first. Mark and his assistants are very knowledgeable and fully accommodating. You can float at any time that suits you, and the location is in a quiet street not far from Stafford town center, so no stressful city center to navigate to find it. Great place to reset after a busy or intense week.

Thank you very much for such kind words Chris! it really makes our day when people take their time to share the good times they have had at Time to Float. We chose the out of town location so it would be easy for people to park and get to - you're quite right, we don't want clients arriving stressed! We hope to see you here again very soon.

I have just got home from
My first float at time to float Stratford. All I can say is I am a new woman.
I was having issues with high stress and anxiety, and I have a chronic pain condition. My partner tried it and demanded me to go asap. Mark the owner was fantastic, lovely atmosphere there. He explained everything. The place was very clean, very clam.
You have a nice warm shower before you get in, in your private float room. Then you step into the float pod close the door behind you get comfortable and turn the light off, and float away in your Epsom salt bath. There is an emergency button if you need it but you will be so relaxed you won't think about it.
It's totally dark and your mind and body just relaxes. I was not 100% convinced before I went in, but by the time I got out I was a different person. So relaxed, muscles felt amazing, pain was down and in some joints there was no pain. My blood pressure went down by 22%, my anxiety and stress well let's say it's like i never felt that way. I don't remember the last time I felt this well and this relaxed.
If you have any anxiety, stress, pain conditions all I can say is try it and if you are not changed, I will be shocked.
I don't endorse many things but this was amazing and I will be a regular visitor.

Have always wanted to float but lack of venue's without having to travel miles meant it was a non starter, so was really delighted to have this open in Stafford. I felt a bit apprehensive, but soon relaxed upon entering. Lovely friendly greeting, full instructions given! When I first got into the pod I did turn the light off & fully close the lid, but after a few minutes i felt a bit claustrophobic, so had to open the lid a few inches! I wiggled around a bit trying to find a comfy position, arms up above my head like sunbathing became the optimal position. Think my brain didn't full switch off (not used to relaxing) but came very close! At the end of your hour wave music is piped into the pod, so a nice gentle wake up call! I felt as though I floated out of there! It's a very surreal feeling & I cannot wait to see how I sleep over the coming nights & for how long I am pain free from a back injury! Would definatley recommend & will be returning.
