An Overview of Our Services and their Health Benefits
Updated: Apr 24
With several different services housed under the same roof, here's a break-down of each service we offer and the health benefits they offer.
Sensory Deprivation Floating
Floating offers numerous benefits, including stress relief, neck and shoulder tension relief, better sleep, and jet lag recovery.
Weightlessness is achieved through 1,200 pounds of Epsom salts, which also supports healthy magnesium levels, as the magnesium in the salt water is absorbed through the skin.
Magnesium is an essential nutrient for many of the body’s processes, including muscle recovery and bone health. You’ll float for 60 minutes in a spacious pod, giving you a chance to truly disconnect from the world and focus on yourself. It provides a uniquely spacious experience, and a way to bolster our health, both physically and mentally.
Regular float sessions can elevate your mood while also supporting healthier muscles and bones. We recommend coming in at least twice per month, though there is no downside of floating more frequently.
Cryotherapy utilizes the body’s flight or fight response to reduce inflammation, improve muscle recovery, increase circulation, improve performance, and more. In just three minutes, your body enters an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response through the gasified nitrogen that enters our state-of-the-art full-body cryotherapy chamber.
During those three minutes, blood rushes to the core to increase your metabolism to create heat. After you leave the chamber, blood returns to your extremities more oxygenated and carrying newly released neurotransmitters. This all works together to support a healthier physical and mental state.
Cryotherapy can be done as often as every day, though most find that ideal support comes from going once or twice a week. These visits are typically a total of 15 to 20 minutes, so you can enjoy the support before getting back to your day.
Local cryo uses the same cold nitrogen technology as our whole-body cryotherapy, but focuses the gas in a pinpointed stream of gas that can be directed on a particular part of the body, at a slightly cooler temp than the gas in the whole-body cryo. It can be used on most parts of the body, from head to toe. It's an ideal solution for for treating a specific injury or an area with pain. 5-8 minutes of local cryotherapy is comparable to hours of “icing,” and is much more powerful and efficient.
Sauna therapy has been a long-standing method of bolster health, but infrared saunas provide additional benefits like additional toxification pathways, as well as benefits true of all saunas, such as improved cardiovascular health, stress reduction, muscle recovery, better skin, and improved immunity.
Our full spectrum infrared sauna’s deep, penetrating heat effectively stimulates metabolic activity, which then triggers the release of toxins through the sweat, liver, and kidneys. These 30-minute sessions are one of the most effective ways to reset your circulatory and other physiological systems in the midst of a busy week.
When used regularly, sauna sessions can support both mental and physical health. First time floaters can enjoy a free sauna session included in the purchase of their intro-float.
Fire & Ice: Plunge & Sauna Together
Our Fire & Ice service offers an ideal environment to experience the benefits of both cold exposure therapy in the form of a Cold Plunge, infrared sauna, and the synergistic combination of alternating between the two (contrast therapy).
With Fire & Ice, you'll get a private room with an infrared sauna and a cold plunge for 45 minutes. Get all the benefit from sauna (like detox) and cold therapy (lower inflammation and boosted metabolism) in one session! As we like to say at the spa, the cold has never felt as good as it does after the heat, and vice versa. The combination will leave you feeling amazing and is a great way to prepare for an extremely deep float.
Cryo T-shock is a safe, non-invasive service that slims and contours the body while tightening and toning skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite. This is completed by utilizing state-of-the-art thermal shock technology to stimulate collagen and elastin while speeding up cellular activities and improving blood circulation.
Each session is 60 minutes, and most see a difference in just one session. However, everyone is different and some may require three to five sessions to see their best results. This is why we offer a package with three sessions.
We want to make sure you have the support you need to live your healthiest life. Once these results are achieved, it’s maintained with healthy nutrition, skincare, and exercise.
We offer compression boots in our lounges, to comfortably experience the benefits of massage via the air that fills the whole-leg boots.
While the boots fill with air across different points up and down the legs, the legs are squeezed, massaging the soft tissue and stimulating increased circulation, as well as lymphatic drainage.
