A popular form of relaxation and healing could be on its way to Penrith by Christmas after a new development application (DA) is filed.
City Cave, which has flotation and wellness centers across the state, has made a proposal to Penrith City Council to create an indoor leisure facility in Jamisontown.
The DA is looking to convert an existing rental and use it as a health studio known as a “leisure flotation center”, which includes flotation tanks, massage rooms and infrared saunas.
Floating therapy, which has gained attention in recent years, involves lying in a pool filled with 400 kilograms of Epsom salts with water heated to your body’s external temperature.
