Who are Apollo Health & Wellness?

Apollo Health & Wellness is Galway’s premier Spa and Recovery Centre located on the outskirts of Galway City.

We started the Float movement in Galway by providing the first Floatation Therapy service at the start of 2019. Due to the popular demand from our customers around Ireland, we expanded and fitted an extra Floatation Pod for two people to Float simultaneously.

 Apollo Health & Wellness found a gap in the market where no Wellness Centre provided a complete spa and recovery experience.

 Floatation therapy isn’t the only service at Apollo Health & Wellness, we also offer state-of-the-art recovery services including cryotherapy, private sauna, contrast therapy and compression therapy. Whether you’re an athlete, an exhausted parent or simply looking for a new method of relaxation there is something for everyone at Apollo Health & Wellness.

Floatation Therapy (Sensory Deprivation)

A floatation tank (isolation tank) or sensory deprivation tank is a weightless environment designed to help you relax, recover, and reset your mind. When you start your floatation therapy session, you will enter a calm and peaceful environment away from the outside world. 

What will you find in the floatation pod:

  • 550kg of Epsom salt and water solution to float
  • The 35.5-degree solution matches your skin temperature
  • Soundproofing to limit external noise

 

Floatation rest offers countless benefits, both physical and mental:

  • Increased blood flow
  • Elevated dopamine and endorphins
  • Pain relief, stress reduction
  • Sleep schedule maintenance
  • Enhanced creativity

It turns out that when you are not fighting gravity or constantly taking in information, your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal.

Your mind is free to think deeply without distraction, your brainwaves slow down and your body gets to rest, de-stress and heal.

It is likely to be the most relaxing thing you have ever experienced.

Cryotherapy

Whole-body cryotherapy is a kind of cryogenic therapy where your body is exposed to near-freezing temperatures for a short time. The cold temperature helps reduce inflammation and pains. 

Cryotherapy is a fast and healthy process that accelerates the body’s natural recovery while improving overall wellbeing and energising the body. The Cryo chamber can drop below -140 degrees Celsius.

Spend only 3 minutes in our Cryotherapy chamber & you can experience a whole host of benefits:

  • Detoxify your whole body
  • Boost your metabolism

  • Anti-Ageing, rejuvenating and tightening of the skin
  • Relieves brain fog; Improves mental health, making you sharper

People, including self-described ‘Iceman’ Wim Hof, claim that extreme cold can improve mental and physical health and even prolong life. 

Contrast Therapy

Contrast bath therapy is a series of brief, repeated immersions in water, alternating between warm and cold temperatures. The treatment involves exposing the body to a contrast of temperatures, i.e. hot then cold. 

Athletes use this therapy to treat muscle damage and sore or painful muscles and speed up recovery after injuries.
