“Ova” was the trademark of a floatation bath manufacturer in the 1980s. The word “Ovarium” contains the Latin ovum, meaning egg, which refers to the ovoid form of our floatation baths and quite symbolically, a return to our initial life source.

Our primary mission is to offer a space dedicated to relaxation and rejuvenation for the body and mind. Therefore all of our services are dedicated to that mission, whether it is Floatation Bath, Massage, Pulsar or NeuroSpa.
The floatation bath is a personal relaxation area of rejuvenation and growth. The space was carefully designed to comfortably accommodate one person. It isn't suitable for two or more people.
The floatation bath is ideal for pregnant women as it allows them to experience weightlessness. Also, contrary to Thermal Spas where temperature variations can be an issue, there are no contraindications for floatation baths where the water is kept at the skin's natural temperature.

Only a small percentage of the population are unaware that they suffer from epilepsy (i.e. about one in 20,000). For these people, pulsating lights like a strobe can cause discomfort. If you experience any discomfort, simply remove the glasses.
No. The lights used in the glasses are tiny light emitting diodes (LEDs) which are quite safe and actually of a lower intensity than a regular light bulb. During a session, we recommend you keep your eyes closed to remain in a deeper state of relaxation. If desired, we can adjust the brightness to suit your preference.
With regards to floatation baths, we strongly recommend experiencing them without clothes for the most comfortable experience. For massage, a cover will always cover you and only the area being massaged is uncovered in order to respect your privacy; it's more comfortable if you're not wearing anything but we respect the wishes of our guests should they want to keep any measure of clothing on.
The Epsom Salt and other cleaning products that we use in the water will not affect your hair colouring in any way. However, it's very important to carefully wash your hair prior to using our floatation baths to make sure none of your hair colouring products gets mixed in to the floatation bath water.
There are no known contraindications to Floatation Baths. However, it is possible that the Epsom salt may irritate any skin sensitivity or wounds. This is why it's best to avoid floating when you have a skin rash or other serious outbreak. If only a small region of your skin is affected, petroleum jelly can be applied to prevent the salt from coming in contact with the sensitive region, allowing the float experience to be a pleasant and comfortable one.
Epsom salt is the common name of magnesium sulphate. When large quantities are dissolved in water as it is in our floatation baths (where more than 2000 cups of it are used), it allows the body to float effortlessly on water. It is also known for its therapeutic effects: helping blood and lymphatic circulation, reducing muscle tension, improving sleep, helping in the control of one's emotions, and reducing stress. It is also used as a safe and natural laxative or purgative solution. Epsom Salt can be purchased in most regular drugstores.
The liquid in the floatation baths is composed of water, Epsom salt and safe cleaning products, all of which are filtered between each session. Additionally, many tests and cleaning procedures are carried out on a daily basis and our water is sampled and tested many times a day in order to guarantee that the highest quality standards are met.
You may want to bring a small snack. You also have the option to buy our nuts, granola bars, and health patties at reasonable prices.
