It’s not just a bath, it’s a full service
Swimitation was created for the benefit of all ages; from adults in need for an exercise to toddlers learning how to swim, parents in need of active rest, and older people wanting to remain active. Swimitation meets the needs of those hoping for peace and clarity, as well as those with more demanding needs such as athletes undergoing recovery from injury.
Swimitation ensures immediate and long-lasting results through two aspects:
- Training muscles that support body
- Releasing muscle tension
Swimitation works by influencing the brain. Warm water (34º C) creates brain relaxation and a feeling of weightlessness. The Swimitation patented chair provides environment predictability and enhanced security.
Swimitation exercises are carried out in warm water, which compensates for gravity and releases joints. This ensures better blood circulation and works out more muscles. The water also massages and heals, releasing muscle tensions while bringing relief to joints. Water adds resistance and provides support too.

Great addition to your centre
Swimitation can be a great addition to the services offered in your facility’s current membership deal. Although there are no preset fees, you may want to consider using other professional services as a pricing guide as well. For example, a Swimitation session could be priced similarity to the cost of a massage in your area. If you are a physical therapist, you can offer aquatic physical therapy in Swimitation at the current local aquatic therapy rates. Because it is a private water session, it may very well work out to the price of a personal workout, even if instructions come from the videos. Finally, the price for a Swimitation session should be higher than, or comparable to, a floating session, warm water pool treatment or water treadmill session.
We recommend membership deals with a pre-determined number of sessions per month, paired with the opportunity to buy more sessions at a discount. We do not recommend any discounts without a membership deal.
Advantages compared to isolation tank
Swimitation enables supported floating (using our patented chair) and regular floating (using Flothetta cap and support) in fresh water. The advantages over an isolation tank are:
- Improved body support with the Swimitation chair, which provides a more secure feeling and aids in relaxation.
- Ergonomically-correct body posture, as opposed to denser portions of the body sinking deeper and causing muscle tension with isolation tanks.
- Ability to float using a yoga mat or special devices like Flothetta.
- No salt, which is essential for people with dry skin, as it can add to the problem, as well as for diabetics, as high levels of magnesium can stimulate insulin release.
