Q&A with Tania Medina, Stylist
People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
A welcoming personable space in a great midtown location. A non-corporate atmosphere with genuine friendly stylists.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Beauty might be on the inside, but I'm here to help you bring it out and flaunt it.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Pureology deep conditioners are a great way to rehydrate and repair damaged hair. Pureology is a 100% vegan, no-sulfate formula with an anti-fade complex. Matrix Glossings and Paul Mitchell Shines ensure clean shades with extra shine.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
A hot-towel tea tree treatment makes anyone feel rejuvenated and relaxed, leaving the scalp clean and refreshed.
Using her hands to shovel Geoff's potato chips into her mouth, Marni noticed she had chipped one of her nails, an accident that must have occurred sometime between nibbling one of Erica's homemade muffins and using a plastic knife to frost over the sliver she had carved from the side of Greg's yet un-cut birthday cake.
She had already chipped five nails that day—an unusual series of events for someone who was so careful when stealing other people's lunches. Her fingers were usually so stealthy, so nimble, so smooth. If only the receptionist hadn't discovered her "lost" mittens wedged suspiciously between the top of the refrigerator and the side of the microwave.
Marni sighed and crammed Geoff's lunch sack back into the office fridge. She'd have to be more careful from now on, she thought, as she crumpled up the empty chip bag and stuffed it under her blouse. She turned to close the refrigerator door, reaching out at the last second to pinch off a corner of a half-eaten donut half-heartedly covered in plastic wrap. As she retracted her hand, it clipped the top of a bottle of root beer, sending a deep gash across the red lacquer that graced her index finger. Six.
As she shoved the donut crumb into her mouth, Marni's mind flashed to the manicure kit that Jenna always kept in her desk. Smiling, she made her way over to her cube mate's desk, knowing full well that Jenna never spent her lunch hour on-the-clock. She reached into the top drawer and stopped. There, where the foul-smelling bottle of polish usually sat was a tiny business card: Charming Nails and Hair Salon.
Marni thought for a second. The only thing harder than stealing a cranberry scone from a catering platter was to try and do it with freshly painted nails. Better to wait until after work when her tired hands could be treated with the care, respect, and pampering they deserved. She had never liked Jenna's choice of color anyway.
She tossed the crumpled potato chip into Jenna's empty wastebasket, slipped the business card into her pocket, and walked away wondering what color would go best with the pastrami and rye that Dave always brought on Tuesdays.
Not many people have life-changing experiences from a podcast. But while listening to the Joe Rogan Experience, Ryan Duey was inspired to try stepping into a float tank in 2013—and his life has never been the same. Today, Ryan looks forward to to helping others tap into their subconscious, hyper-relaxed state at his own float-tank business, Capitol Floats. Read on to learn more about floating:
What to Expect
First-timers should arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork and go through orientation.
After showering and putting in earplugs, you'll immerse yourself in the tank, which is filled with an epsom-salt solution.
After an hour, music gently plays in the tank to indicate the session is complete. You'll then shower again to rinse off the saltwater.
You'll then retreat to the post-float room to settle back into the real world. Drinks, books, and writing and art materials will be on hand, and you can also bring your laptop to jot down any creative ideas you came up with while in the tank.
Floating has positive effects on both the body and mind. Physically, the epsom salts allow you to float effortlessly, reducing strain on muscles and joints. Sessions can temporarily relieve pain and may aid in lowering blood pressure, reducing bloating, or increasing circulation. Mentally, the time in the tank allows your mind to wander freely. This can reduce stress and increase mental clarity, resulting in creativity, self-reflection, and possibly even the ability to remember where you lost your prized Beanie Baby in 1997.
About the Tanks
Filled with 10 inches of water
The water is saturated with 1,000 pounds of epsom salts so you'll float, and the forces of gravity are less.
The tank is heated so the air, body, and water temperature are all the same (93 degrees Fahrenheit), so there's no jarring difference that draws you out of a relaxed state.
Insulated so there's no light or sound interference
