With all the physical stimuli we’re exposed to day in and day out, it’s no surprise that we need relief. This is where Float Therapy steps in, armed with float tanks to improve both mental and physical health. The lightless, soundless tank is filled with 12 inches of body-temperature water that is loaded with 1,200 pounds of sea salt, enabling you to feel nothing at all, including no definable skin boundaries. Inside, the body is completely and evenly supported, giving the sensation of defying gravity while freeing it from external stimuli. The sensation, combined with the complete lack of external stimulation, can help floaters ease into deeper meditative states for increased relaxation.
Beyond soothing the mind, the lack of gravitational pressure lulls muscles and joints into full relaxation, which can temporarily relieve pain from arthritis or strained muscles. It can also open the circulatory system, allowing blood to flow more freely with less work from the heart. During sessions, pulse rates also generally slow, complimenting meditation.
Every time the doors of Scissorhands Hair Studio swing open, a staff member walks over to welcome the entering guest with a warm neck wrap and a seasonal beverage. This uncommon hospitality is among the many reasons the salon earned Yes! Weekly's Reader's Choice award for Best Hair Salon in 2010 and 2011. Other compelling reasons include: private treatment areas that guests can visit for a massage, facial, or body treatment; and the stylists themselves, who carefully evaluate face shapes and fumigate beehives before adding highlights, natural hair extensions, or spiral perms.
In the salon’s waiting area, fuchsia walls surround zebra-print loveseats accented by vases brimming with white and black feathers. Before or after their treatments, guests may peruse the salon's boutique, which features jewelry, hair accessories, and home decor handcrafted by local artists.
