[ COMPETITION: Floatworks ]

SE1 Direct has teamed up with Floatworks -
http://www.floatworks.com - in Thrale Street to offer
you the chance to win one of three individual float
vouchers to enable you to sample the pure relaxation
and escape offered by a floatation session.

Floatation REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation
Therapy/ Technique) is floating on top of a 30cm deep
pool of salt water in an specially designed tank. The
tank resembles a large enclosed bathtub. It is
constructed from fibreglass and is built so as to
eliminate all outside distractions such as sight,
sound, tactile sensations, and gravity. A large amount
of Epsom salts is added to the water to create optimal
buoyancy. The water is warmed to a temperature of 35.5
centigrade. All these elements help create an
atmosphere in which one can achieve a profound feeling
of relaxation and well-being. 

With six state-of-the-art tanks, Floatworks is the
largest and best-equipped floatation centre in the
World.

For your chance to win, simply answer this easy
question:

What is the temperature in centigrade of the flotation
tank water?

Email your answer to floatworks@se1direct.co.uk by 5pm
on Wednesday 6 March for your chance to win. Winners
will be picked at random from the correct responses.
Winners will be notified by email.
