1 Float Tank
Unwind and give your muscles some time out with a float session at Liquid Room. You float effortlessly, free of all external distractions, including light and sound. This popular treatment may assist with sports injury recovery, as it takes the pressure off tired and sore joints and muscles. It also boosts circulation, which may help with healing, while the epsom salts in the water contain magnesium – a muscle relaxant. 191 Bay Rd, Sandringham. Website: http://liquidroom.com.au

Bayside Melbourne offer rejuvenating full-spectrum infrared sauna sessions in Beaumaris. For those with sports injuries, the heat allows your muscles to relax and can relieve tension and spasms.
