    New Services
    Epsom Salt Float Tent
    The float tent is an amazing experience, recently increasing in popularity for its ability to provide a meditative state for body and mind as well as help the body heal as it bathes in magnesium sulfate.
    The tent is maintained at a 93.5 degree temperature, designed to feel like body temperature so the person floating has a sensory deprivation experience with no noise, no light, and no sense of being hot or cold. Floating is an excellent therapy for those with stress, anxiety, or PTSD. It is four times as concentrated as the Dead Sea, allowing a unique floating experience. It allows the body to relax, detoxify, and replenish. It leaves you feeling amazingly relaxed and energized at the same time.
    Infrared Sauna
    The infrared sauna helps your body systems detoxify through the use of infrared waves. It is not a steam sauna and is 80-90% more effective than a steam sauna in benefiting your health. It also has colored light therapy to balance your energy and organs. It can help with weight loss, pain relief, stress, sleep, the immune system including cancer fighting cells, and skin health. It helps increase energy levels, stamina, and mental clarity.
