The flotation tank gained popularity among pacifists in the 1970s as a peaceful alternative to the dunk tank. Make waves, not war, with today’s Groupon to Be & Be Well in Ben Lomond. Choose between the following options:
- For $45, you get one hour of flotation therapy and one hour of sensory exaltation for one person (a $90 value).<p>
- For $79, you get one hour of flotation therapy and one hour of sensory exaltation for two people (a $180 value).<p>
Be & Be Well revitalizes spirits by centering the mind and body in serene flotation treatments. During one-hour floats, clients bob in water infused with epsom salt, a natural soother of body aches and mental tension. Thoughts harmonize as stressed senses meditate in total isolation rivaled only by deserted islands and meetings of the Millard Fillmore fan club. With senses thoroughly deprived, clients can reboot their consciousness with an hour in the sensory-exaltation tank, a wellness innovation unveiled at Burning Man in 2011. The computerized “space pod” creates deep relaxation with a thick foam bed that cushions its inhabitant as aromatherapy scents permeate the air. Throughout the treatment, eyes feast on a mesmerizing mixture of light and holographic food designed to incite higher brain function.
Wellness enthusiasts Jai and Shanti Hudes have 30 years’ experience with flotation and alternative forms of relaxation and happily help visitors fine-tune their experience to target specific concerns or turn fingers into fresh grapes instead of prunes. Groupon customers will also receive a 10% discount off any other wellness service if ordered on the day of their floatation.
