Spending a day at a float spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep. Float away with this Groupon.
$39 for 60 Minutes of Flotation Therapy ($79 Value)
Inside a private and quiet room, you first relax with a shower before stepping into the REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulus Therapy) pod. You then float for 60 minutes atop 10 inches of warm, highly buoyant Epsom salt water while the surrounding pod blocks out all outside noise and light. The water maintains the same temperature as the body, giving the impression of floating on air, and the salt can help to improve skin conditions and boost blood circulation. You remain in complete control during each float and can customize your experience with light and music if desired. This will help leave you feeling relaxed and as well rested as a lily pad on vacation as you emerge from the tank. The pod filters for 15 minutes between each client, catching particles as small as 1/100th of a human hair, ensuring that it is thoroughly sanitized for each guest.
True REST Float Spa
In 2009, True REST Float Spa founders Nick and Holly Janicki set out to discover the most effective modes of helping clients naturally achieve blissful states. Their efforts have resulted in the valley’s lone flotation therapy center. In addition to the relaxing properties of flotation, the staff believes in its rejuvenating properties as well. An internal study with clients who had minor to moderate muscle strains, pulls, and tears showed a 20–50% reduction in pain with regular sessions. The decrease in sensory information is also purported to help diminish depression, anxiety, and allodoxaphobia.
The spa oversees more than clients drifting inside the flotation therapy pods. Its oxygen bars fill lungs and saturate bloodstreams with oxygen-rich air, working to heighten awareness and relaxation and enhance the mood. NASA-created filters screen out nitrogen, argon, and other trace gasses from the air, leaving air four to five times more oxygenated and plants four to five times more jealous. Elsewhere in the spa, tight muscles meet their match against time-honored massage strokes.
