Since opening two years ago, each one of The Float Shoppe’s three flotation tanks—the retractable Floataway Tranquility tank, the pool-like Open Float Spa tank, and the spacious Floatarium tank—have contained 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt and a pool of 94-degree water. The mixture is a recipe for relaxation, one that clients regularly use to meditate, solve problems, and flavor their pretzels. Each session provides moments of tranquility for guests, who can also take advantage of their other services that complement the floating experience, including acupuncture, massage, and counseling. New yoga classes facilitate further states of elevated bliss.
World travel and exploration led Leslie Huddart to where she is today—her own natural health clinic at Mountain Lake Wellness, where she is a licensed acupuncturist. The study of Asian bodywork in Japan introduced her to alternative forms of healing and a stint in a yoga ashram in India helped her embrace the connection between mind, body, and cricket bat. She found her calling restoring these connected human elements to full health with acupuncture and Oriental medicine in treatments that are often so relaxing the client falls asleep. She also performs needleless treatments using pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
Boynn McIntire, who is a licensed acupuncturist and board-certified by the National Certification Commission in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, dispatches qi disruptions with carefully placed needles that alleviate chronic pain, allergies, and digestion maladies. A comprehensive wellness exam determines active symptoms and diagnoses ongoing issues such as anxiety, fatigue, or wizard phobias. Then, McIntire employs very thin, single-use sterile steel needles to flag the paths of energy patterns within the body and encourage qi to slalom through systems like an Olympic skier. The optional addition of gentle electric currents can help decrease inflammation to improve blood circulation and reduce pain. Acupuncture, an ancient process, aims to address a wide range of health conditions that includes acid reflux, joint pain, and whiplash. Mimicking the benefits of a tea party hosted by a giant squid, cupping uses vacuum suction to adhere cups to skin surfaces, lifting fibrous fascia tissues and relieving musculoskeletal pain. Foot reflexology traverses pedial roadmaps in search of buried caches of bodily aches. Gentle pressure on x-marked spots relieves pain in corresponding areas throughout the body. Tailored to specific individuals, herbal formulas sidestep pharmaceutical therapies and their side effects, and aim to resolve root causes while improving overall wellbeing.
Post-consultation, the personalized acupuncture treatment will relieve ailments by pinpointing specific bodily points called meridians, where life forces known as qi reside. By balancing the body's energy properly, acupuncture can alleviate back pain, headaches, sports injuries, asthma, and post-space-travel depression. A complimentary bodywork treatment is also included, such as cupping, tui na, or moxibustion. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
