Our Story

In a tranquil backwater of Stellenbosch, we have created an intimate retreat for you to escape from those ever-pressing demands and pressures and emerge restored. We can help you with physical, mental, acute and chronic fatigue and pressure.

How? By offering a way to let your worries float away, if just for a little while. Our space has been designed with your relaxation and rejuvenation in mind. What this means is that this is a space where you can freely enter for your float session and explore the multifaceted benefits of floatation therapy.

Floating is a time-tested therapy that has been scientifically proven to enhance your wellbeing in multiple ways. Floating is recommended to ease aches and pains, elevate mood, restore balance, encourage better sleep and more.

Would you like to learn more about the benefits of floating? Visit our website to discover all that you can get out of your float. We believe that everyone can benefit from simply taking time out and floating.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s cover the basics of what we do and why we do it.

What is Floating?

Floating allows your body to escape the restraints of gravity by simply relaxing in an Epsom-salt saturated water bath. The benefits resulting from this simple but profound practice include:

  • General wellbeing
  • Relaxation
  • Physical therapy & Recovery
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Sleep and insomnia

And more! Scientific studies support these benefits, but more have been reported as your experience floating is uniquely yours, and you might just get to enjoy benefits that we have yet to list.

Float Zero: The Journey

Have you heard of us but can’t seem to remember how? Before opening our doors in Stellenbosch, Float Zero offered clients an exceptional float experience at 2 different locations in Cape Town for many years up until their unfortunate closure due to Covid-19 in 2020.

After this, while disheartened, Float Zero sallied forth into a new phase. Thanks to the hard work and determination from staff and friends, the studio now stands open and ready to offer single or group bookings to Cape Town residents. Anyone involved with this process will know that there were a few bumps along the way but that we are beyond ecstatic to be able to announce that our doors, or rather, our pods, are OPEN for business.

Through perseverance and teamwork, we are proud to re-launch today under new ownership in our Stellenbosch studio to offer clients, both new and established, the opportunity to treat themselves in a safe and welcoming environment

Meet the Team

I’m Audrey Roberts, and my journey of resurrecting Float Zero, after the devastating Covid-induced closure was triggered by a series of synchronistic connections. My life had been turned upside-down and I needed a new direction and a sense of purpose that would connect me with people who also needed a boost.

As I explored the concept of floating it became clear to me that this was how I could find a way back to myself and in the process, maybe, help others. The road to getting up and running has been challenging and I’ve climbed some steep learning curves! Fortunately for me, my timing coincided with Kay’s job-seeking and I found the ideal woman to help put us on the map.

Kay Mhlakaza had tired of the rigours of the hospitality industry and was looking to use her impressive people and admin skills in a more personal and intimate environment. Her delightful, charming personality is the perfect fit for Float Zero, as you will discover in your interactions with her.
