Floating, and not like floating on the Comal or the Guadalupe rivers is quite the experience. The floating we’re referring to here is a relaxing, sensory depravation experience that has just recently been brought to San Antonio. Float SA, off of Fredericksburg Road, opened in Novemeber and has been gaining more attention and followers with the services they offer. Float therapy involves a cabin or pod like large bathing pool with an extremely high concentration of epsom salt, creating a bouyancy like that of the Dead Sea, and your entire body effortlessly floats when you enter the water. Soft music and lights fade in a few minutes and with zero stimulation you come to a place of ultimate relaxation. In a world where people are constantly bombarded with lights, sounds, smells and the hustle and bustle of everyday life, float therapy was refreshing and unlike anything we have ever experienced. This new age mediation, can relieve physical aliments such as neck and back pressure, and is wonderful for your skin, along with the obvious mental and spiritual benefits it offers.
Part of your float therapy experience includes a 15 minute trip to their planetarium like massage chair room and hot tea and refreshments in the float lounge. Float SA also offers massage therapy if you wish to add that to your services. If you are interested check out the Float website below.
