Happy Monday everyone!
I thought I would start the week out by sharing my experience at Escape Float Spa! Who doesn’t need a little TLC every once in awhile, and a spa is the best place to get that! Escape Float Spa is all about this new thing called ‘floating’. A little background, floating is complete relaxation for the mind and body. People float for many reasons, some common ones are to relieve stress, recover from an injury, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and a whole lot more.
I was very interested, kind of skeptical, and slightly nervous to try out floating. I was glad to find out it was very relaxing and a sweet experience! At Escape Float Spa you start out in this relaxing room with comfortable seating, books, TV, and an oxygen bar! I myself had never tried an oxygen bar before and was really excited to see what it was all about. You get your own personal nose hose and you get to hook it up to whichever flavor you would like and then you take deep breaths and relax. After the oxygen bar you get brought to your personal room that has your floating pod and a shower. I was a little worried about feeling claustrophobic being enclose in this pod but I did not feel that way at all. After being enclosed in the pod they have a sound button and a light button, so you have full control over whether your in total darkness, soft lights, spa music, or complete silence. If you have no sound and completely dark that is when you have the most opportunity for complete relaxation. I loved having it completely dark and liked half the time with the lulling spa music and the other half no sound. The floating part though was my favorite! It was so crazy how I can have my body be relaxed and I just float, no work on my part. The reason that is is because there is 1000 pounds of epsom salt in the water, so you aren’t fighting gravity. I have a really bad back and so even when I am lying on something soft I still feel pressures from the solid surface, with floating you don’t have any of that. Fun fact, the water is kept at 93.5 degrees, which is considered skin-receptor neutral, which means you lose track of where the water begins and your body ends. It really was a cool experience. After your float you shower off the excess salt and then you can use their vanity room to finish getting ready!
If your in the Sioux Falls, SD area I would highly recommend trying out Escape Float Spa. Very nice environment and a great way to reduce stress and just relax. If you are not around the Sioux Falls area I would encourage you to try a float spa near you and give it a try!
