“Whatever your purpose for flotation the tank will be your vehicle for transcendency: physical, creative, meditative, holistic or spiritual. Zero gravity sensory depreciation moves us to new plains of contemplation and awareness of the limitless invisible matter that exists in the mind, body & soul. Whether a tank session has coerced a kaleidoscopic presence within your imagination or a quiet cocoon of tranquility you will leave the vessel with a crystallised perspective on were the focus or letting go is happening within your existence and in realising the totality of your happiness.
Zero-G Float Therapy, Edinburgh is the perfect and respective host for providing a uninhibited space that allows for the user individual motivations for floatation in a comfortable and immaculate environment.” Sarah Copland
“I ❤️ this – a great float experience, couldn’t stop smiling, and afterwards feel like I’ve been given a new spine. Lovely friendly staff helps first timers feel at ease too. Will be back for sure.” Cara Louise Murdoch
“I suffer with back problems as I have slipped discs, and was looking for a way to relax without getting a back massage as this can make my back worse. I had heard about the floatation tanks and saw this on Groupon, so I decided to give it a go. I was a bit apprehensive prior to going, however as soon as I got in and the lady explained exactly what would happen, I felt at ease. For the first time in weeks, I was pain free while floating and I came out feeling extremely relaxed. I couldn’t recommend this enough, and I’ll definitely be back! Kelly Fyfe
“Had my first float yesterday and OMG it was amazing. Shimmer is a beautiful and spotless salon. Was made to feel very welcome and had everything explained to me. The float was fantastic and definitely needed , first time I’ve felt properly rested in ages. I have fibromyalgia and it helped me feel pain free and relaxed. I got the special offer so had a 30 minute massage afterwards which was heavenly I almost fell asleep. I will definitely be back. Great friendly staff, great experience, would definitely recommend.” Cheryl Forsyth

“I had my first trial of the is-opod floatation tank and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would definitely recommend it as a fantastic way to really relax. The whole experience from beginning to ends was wonderful and I will certainly do it again.” Graham McNeil
“Have psoriasis in many places and was feeling really run down, was given a session in the pod and although it took a bit of getting used to my skin really improved for 6 days post session. The girls are lovely and relay supportive on my visit.
From my experience I’d ensure that I didn’t have anything strenuous planned for the rest of the day but people may be affected differently. The affects were amazing felt so chilled, didn’t feel flue like and psoriasis improvise massively. Will definitely make this a regular occurance! Thank you ladies.” Romany Evangeline Fallon
“Well all I can say is wow! My midwife said I needed something to try and help me relax and I had been struggling with work and my 4 year old to find something that gave me some me time. I am 32 weeks pregnant and it’s been a hell of a time, in and out hospital.
I came across Shimmer on Facebook when it was first opening. I have just returned from a truly amazing experience. From the minute I walked through the door I was made to feel welcome and at complete ease. The room the pod is in is beautifully decorated and really calming. The pod itself just let me float away into my own little world both physically and mentally. I was given a noodle float which meant I could float on my front or back. I preferred back but everyone will find there own way. Music is played when you first get in and then this is turned off for complete relaxation. It is then put back on at the end so you know when to get out. I then had a lovely shower and was given fruit tea on my exit. Every fine detail is thought of from ear plugs to hair straighteners! If you are considering this and aren’t sure please give it a go you won’t be disappointed. Staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable and will answer any questions you might have!” Amie Fraser
