The secret to total relaxation? Salt. More than 1,000 pounds of epsom salt, to be exact. Inside Flotation Philly’s float pods, warm water saturated with this salt allow users to experience the sensation of total weightlessness, allowing their muscles to disengage in a way they normally can't. Inside the pods, quiet and darkness mask the other senses, allowing the mind to wander and completely relax as well. Read on to learn more about the benefits of floating:
Mental benefits: Because the brain is free from external stimulation, a triggered rush of endorphins brings mental clarity and helps get rid of stress and anxiety. This type of total relaxation may also help with problem solving, improve memory and mood, and help with concentration. Some studies even suggest that flotation therapy can reduce stress related hormones and help with hypertension.
Physical benefits: The anti-gravity environment of the tank does wonders for the muscles and joints. Many athletes use it as part of their recovery process, since it's believed floating helps to flush lactic acid, cortisone, and adrenaline from the body.
Things to know: Most guests float nude, but you may wear a bathing suit if you prefer. Ear plugs are provided, as are showers, towels, and toiletries for your convenience.

Feel beautiful from head to toe with the help of the expert stylists at Picone Beauty and Wellness.
While searching for a location for her salon and spa, founder Janet Conigliaro fell in love with a historic Victorian house on the edge of Wilmington. Deciding the domestic setting would help her clients feel at home, Conigliaro started her business, and more than a decade later, she and her staff are still snipping tresses and pampering skin amid the dwelling’s wood floors, ornate silver mirrors, and flowing lavender and green curtains.
The stylists employ products from Redken, Goldwell, and Framesi as they shift hair shades and craft updos for weddings, proms, and nights of partying at the city’s trendiest gas stations. The rest of the staff stays busy, too: nail technicians layer fingertips with long-lasting Shellac polish, skin specialists concoct custom masks for troubled skin, and massage therapists soothe knotted backs with Swedish, hot-stone, and sports massages. In the boutique, visitors can find jewelry and handbags to add to the wax statues of vacationing Supreme Court justices they sculpt in their free time.
Currie Hair Skin & Nails performs its ministrations in ultramodern, elegant spaces as clients settle into plush robes and slippers. Stylists guide patrons into sleek leather chairs to infuse 'dos with face-framing highlights or tame overgrown head ferns with a phalanx of scissors and a blow-dry for good measure. Visages in need of amelioration may opt for the recovery facial, which revitalizes with an arctic-berry-based antioxidant serum that neutralizes free radicals and protects the skin. During an aromatherapy massage, licensed massage therapists soothe away stress from demanding jobs and dishonest parking meters, and mani-pedi specialists deftly shape and polish nails, repair broken nail beds, and curb thrill-seeking hangnails.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand and Stone founder John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand and Stone has expanded to more than 25 states and over 200 locations. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and hair-removal services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Building on traditional UV, spray, and airbrush tanning, the crew at Self Indulgence Tanning and Self Day Spa guides its clients through technologically advanced, self-service spa services that include infrared body wraps and water-jet HydroMassages controlled by a touchscreen. Brighter smiles enhance tans after a ShineWhite LED treatment, and a traditional sauna kept at 170–180 degrees Fahrenheit gives clients a chance to kick out squatting toxins.
