Källa Treatment

Accept a special invitation to live the extraordinary experience of weightlessness. It’s impossible to refuse.

KÄLLA: a saltwater flotation pool

Better than the Dead Sea

Källa is a large saltwater flotation pool dug 5 metres deep into the rock which contains 10 tons of Epsom salt in 1,200 cubic feet of water.

If you’ve ever experienced the Dead Sea, you’ll appreciate floating in Källa even more. Here, only the most carefully selected and balanced magnesium salts are used. The water’s absolute purity and 12 percent salinity are constantly monitored, and the pool’s filtration systems exceed current standards.

Källa Treatment

Reach for the zenith of relaxation and wellness.

Källa invites you to the extraordinary experience of weightlessness in the quiet atmosphere of its underground location. Let yourself go completely, with zero resistance. Designed to accommodate several bathers at once, Källa’s exquisite construction allows users to fully achieve mental and physical bliss. The pool is perfectly level, and the continuous flow of water over its rounded edges minimizes turbulence, so the presence of others will not disturb your inner voyage.

Once you have successfully let go, all the muscles in your body will relax. This is the moment where you will reach the pinnacle of relaxation; some may even fall asleep in the pool.

Epsom salt

Epsom salt, also known as Magnesium sulfate, is composed of sulfur, magnesium, and oxygen. It is named for a town in England where Epsom salt was historically used in harvests.

When added to water, Epsom salt increases the water’s density, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of flotation therapy. Epsom salt is well known for its numerous health benefits. When the magnesium is absorbed by the skin, it expels toxins from the body, relaxes the nervous system, reduces swelling, and soothes muscles. It’s an excellent remedy for stress and inflammation. Epsom salt is also known to relieve muscle and joint pain, and general fatigue. Epsom salt is strongly recommended for pregnant women, people with chronic pain, and people with sleep disturbances.

The Benefits of Epsom salts

  • Anti-stress treatment
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Relieves injuries
  • Improves sleep
  • Relaxes the muscles
  • Relaxes the nervous system
  • Expels toxins
  • Reduces swelling
  • Helps regulate heart rhythm
  • Encourages insulin absorption
  • Encourages serotonin production
  • Contributes to oxygenation
  • Prevents and relieves headaches and migraines
  • Improves concentration
  • Relieves eczema
  • Exfoliates the skin

It’s very difficult for individuals with severe anxiety to meditate, to focus on the present. What is fascinating is that when people are floating, they actually manage it quite naturally. These results suggest that flotation is a tool with enormous potential.
