A high concentration of salt makes sidewalks safer, icebergs sinkier, and Dead Sea swimmers livelier. Celebrate the salty satisfaction of serene flotation with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour sensory-deprivation float at Just Relax Floatation, located inside the MVP Athletic Club building in Rockford.
Just Relax Floatation provides a transcendental mind-clearing experience to those seeking an alternative way to escape the everyday. Each float tank is a soundproof, light-proof vessel filled with about 10 inches of Epsom salt—infused water—water that is heated to comfortably match the average temperature of human skin. A meditative sense of weightlessness enshrouds weary appendages throughout the float. Additionally, after an hour in the tank, buoyant bodies will reap the benefits of the Epsom salt’s detoxifying properties. For more information regarding the experience, first-time floaters can consult Just Relax Floatation’s list of beginner tips or hitchhike near a NASA launch pad.
