Floatation therapy is an escape from the constant stress of life’s daily pressures and a natural way to heal the body and mind. The concept is similar to the mineral salt baths in the Dead Sea in Israel. Eight hundred pounds of Epsom salt are dissolved into the spa tub in skin temperature water to create this effect right here in Alexandria, VA. Both lightproof and soundproof, this peaceful space frees you of gravity, noise, and other distractions. Floatation therapy brings the body back into homeostasis.
