People often seek to calm their minds by drifting on the open sea, relaxing to the sound of waves breaking on the shore and a blue whale reading Goodnight Moon in a rich baritone. Replicate oceanic lullings with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a one-hour flotation-therapy session at Silver Essence Floating Spa in Williamsville (a $59.95 value).
Silver Essence Floating Spa’s flotation spas shroud guests in 10 inches of skin-temperature water for private full-mind and full-body relaxation. In a one-hour session, patrons enter enclosed sensory-deprivation tanks to recline or doggy paddle in slow motion in 94-degree water, bolstered by 1,000 pounds of dissolved Epsom salt to facilitate even floating. Each session results in an experience unique to the individual, ranging from mind and body relaxation to daydreaming. Tanks are equipped with inside lights, which may be turned off or left on so guests can crochet yarn swim caps while they soak.
Floating sessions may also help to treat conditions related to back pain, arthritis, injury, and trapping oneself in layers of dry pasta on a daily basis. Though salt effectively cleanses water on its own, the spa staff also employs doses of ultraviolet light and ozone to ensure water is free of bacteria. A cartridge filter system aids in creating squeaky-clean environs, sifting out tub contents 24 hours a day.
Though Silver Essence Floating Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Silver Essence Floating Spa
Silver Essence Floating Spa's experts in floatation therapy help visitors drift away from mental and bodily stresses with two soothing treatments–floatation-therapy and infrared-sauna sessions. During flotation-therapy visits, patrons enter private sensory-deprivation pools/tubs to float effortlessly in 10 inches of skin temperature water, bolstered by 1,000 pounds of dissolved Epsom Salt to facilitate floating against the effects of gravity. Each session results in an experience unique to the individual, which may include mind and body relaxation, and can help treat conditions related to back pain, arthritis, and injury. While float therapy traditionally takes place in the dark, each tub is equipped with inside lights which may be used. Though Epsom salt effectively cleanses water on its own, the spa employs ultraviolet light and doses of ozone to ensure water is free of bacteria. A cartridge filter system, changed weekly, aids in creating squeaky-clean environments, filtering out tub contents 24 hours a day without the use of any harsh chemicals.
In addition to the flotation therapy, Silver Essence Floating Spa also facilitates detoxification with its infrared sauna, which can burn up to 600 calories each session. The infrared heat energy can also help relieve pain associated with fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
