About
Float for Health, Malaysia's first & only Floatation Center, located in the heart of Penang. A state fast becoming a center for Health & Wellness. Float for Health is here to provide the therapeutic service of floating. Floatation Therapy, otherwise known as sensory deprivation, involves you floating, weightlessly in a super saturated solution containing filtered water & over half a tonne of Magnesium Sulphate ( Also known as Epsom salt). While customers float in a almost zero gravity environment free from outside distractions, they feel their body greatly appreciate the reduced tension within their muscles and joints, which allows them to heal faster and feel better. Due to the restricted light, sound and feel stimulants, clients floating are able to think clearly, and truly relax, putting them into a mediative state. Floating is one of the most deeply relaxing experiences for both mind and body. Please note that appointments must be made in advance. Walk-ins may have to be turned away or wait long periods. Appointments can be made via our website or you may email or call us directly. Thank you have a pleasant day.

Authentic service and lovely experience!

I started my experience with a few emails to confirm a couple of questions. Arthur responded to me with very clear answers. I was greeted on the day of my float by Rakesh. He was kind, knowledgeable and very personally connected to the benefits of floating. I felt welcomed and heard. I had been suffering from gastritis and felt very hopeful that this session would help to calm it. The moment I arrived I felt more relaxed. After 90 minutes of floating my belly had stopped hurting completely. The float gave me the chance to completely let go and relax.
Also to note, there is a bit of construction downstairs at the moment and I did hear the occasional low noise of drilling. Not a huge deal for me as I am very good at ignoring distractions but it may be disturbing for some. My suggestion is to ask what time of day the drilling stops and book an appointment then. Absolutely no fault of Float for Health, just a note if people are easily distracted.
Overall, my experience was lovely and I would (and plan to) return!

This was my first time floating and I loved it. The staff is very welcoming from the very beginning, the facilities are neat, clean and warm. Everything they provide makes the experience very enjoyable. From the comfortable private rooms where the big tub is, the creams, shampoo, shower and warm towels, the music the pick and afterward reward tea and fruit.
For sure I will be a regular if I ever go to live to Penang!

Float for life!

I was looking through TA for spa’s in Penang when I came across Float for Health. I’ve floated quite a bit in England so liked the idea of having a session at a bit of a cheaper rate than back home!

From looking at the photos I noticed they don’t have pods like I’m used to, but open float tanks. I wasn’t sure if/how this would affect the experience, so I dropped them an e-mail and Arthur, one of the co-owners, wrote back to me and completely put any concerns I had to rest. I then booked a 2 hour session (180RM / £32)!

I was running late, which was completely my fault, and I hate being late for appointments so that was stressing me out in the taxi a bit. I sent them an e-mail from the taxi to let them know, and they were wonderful about it.

Arthur’s colleague (whose name escapes me) was brilliant when I got there. He made me a drink and then went through the history of floating and put on a short video to show what you need to do when you go in the room. All worth listening to even if you have floated before.

I then went into my room to be greeted by the giant tank and then had my 2 hours. As it was my first time doing 2 hours, my mind did start to play with me towards the end, in terms of questioning how long I’d been in there and how long was left. These are all things you’re likely to experience if you’ve not floated before or are floating longer than you normally would. Each time you float, though, the better your experience will be.

When I finished, I went into the relaxation area where there was some freshly cut apple and a drink waiting for me. I felt so revived and relaxed at that point! After a while, Arthur came through to introduce himself and then we had a bit of a chat. Arthur’s a great guy and has a wealth of information about floating and I really enjoyed chatting with him

I won’t go into the health benefits. There’s a ton of them and a ton of information online.

Thanks Arthur for a great experience, and I wish you all the best for the next opening!

An interesting meditative experience.

Floating in a sensory deprivation tank has been on my bucket-list for more than thirty years and finally I got the chance to try it out. I jumped in a the deep-end (it's barely knee-deep in fact) with a two hour session. A very interesting experience. The place is lovely and neat and clean and very professional and the staff was very attentive.

Use the ear-plugs, because unfortunately there is some background noise. Despite ear-plugs I was very aware of the sound of the traffic on the busy main road outside. It wasn't loud, but it was there. I chose (wisely, I think) not to have music played. Probably music would block out the external sounds, but personally, in the spirit of sensory deprivation, I was looking for extreme silence.

Next time (because there will definitely be a next time) I'll ask for the water to be a bit warmer though, as I found the water a little too cold for my liking, but not so cold that I couldn't stay in the tank for 2 hours.

Top-tip - Don't shave before you go, because it will sting a bit at first.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in deep relaxation or delving within.

Found float for health when I was visiting Penang over a month ago. Was one of the most tranquil, relaxing and unique experiences I've ever had.
Woke up feeling fresh and like a brand new me! Apart from that, excellent customer service from the moment of first contact to the last impression!
Definitely a must go when in Penang and looking for one of many peaceful places to be.
