Biologists estimate that water makes up 65% of the human body, 71% of the planet's surface, and 0% of the R & B group Earth, Wind & Fire. Conquer the planet’s most prevalent liquid with today’s Groupon: for $36, you get a 60-minute float-tank session at The Float Spot in Frisco (a $75 value).
The Float Spot calms everyday stress with soothing soaks in the innovative i-sopod float tank, which cradles customers in 300 gallons of calming blue liquid heated to 92–95º F and infused with 1,100 pounds of medical-grade epsom salt and thwarted snow-villains. The tank's infused 12" deep water allows bodies to float effortlessly while being supported by the liquid. A curved canopy helps to redirect physical and mental energy by removing all sensory stimulation, leaving floaters in warm, quiet environment with a whisper of soft blue light.
Clients can listen to a selection of ambient sounds as they hover, achieving feelings of both weightlessness and deep relaxation without having to sneak aboard a rocket full of monks. The soothing treatment relaxes and resets hormonal and metabolic balances, helping to recover from and strengthen resistance against stress, illness, and injury. Groupon purchasers can choose to add a 20-minute hydro massage to their float session for an extra fee ($20, normally $25).
The Float Spot
Outside, The Float Spot's floatation pod resembles a futuristic art sculpture. Inside, though, the structure contains 300 gallons of calming blue water, heated precisely to match the surface temperature of the skin. Upon stepping inside, guests lay back into the water—which stands at about 12 inches deep—and remain buoyant thanks to 1,100 pounds of medical epsom salts; it's virtually impossible to tell where the water is even touching your body.
