Have you ever felt weightless? Completely and utterly weightless. Imagine if you can, not using a single muscle to hold your body up. Imagine how that would feel, effortlessly being in one place. That’s how it feels to float in a floatation pod at ACQUA Wellness.
Walking in to the center, you are immediately greeted by clean, open, and airy feels. An attendant at the desk greets you and takes some information before escorting you off to your personal floatation room. In this room, a spa room, there exists a shower, hooks for your clothes and the white spa robe they have granted you for your visit, and a floatation pod. The attendant gives you necessary visit information, how to use the shower, how you need to wash off before entering the pod, and how to use the pod itself. Then they leave you to your room.
After getting showered and undressed, you do not have to be fully unclothed, if you prefer you can wear a swimsuit, you get in to the pod. The pod contains 1100 lbs of Epsom Salt and it resides in 220 gallons of water. It is about 12 inches deep. The pod has a handle on it’s lid. You have the option to close or shut it, depending on how you feel about being enclosed in the pod. Upon entering the water, it is warm and your body glides easily into the water. You lay back and realize your body is automatically attempting to use your neck and back muscles to keep you afloat. However, they are not needed right now. So, you breath and let yourself completely relax. The lights from inside of the pod change colors, red, blue, purple, green, and the soft music of the spa plays in the pod.( Music is an option, you can have it on or off). At this point, you close the pod and realize you are floating weightlessly in your own little world. No muscles are being strained and the only thing you need to do, is relax. And relax you do, for an hour, breathing and existing while floating. How often do you get to just breath and exist?
After your hour is up, you exit the pod and take a shower washing the salt from your skin. You realize your skin feels much softer. You also realize, you forgot your hair dryer! But, do not worry, in the room just down the hall is a vanity room filled with essentials you might not have thought to bring, a hair dryer, lotion, brand new combs in plastic wrap. Everything you need is provided for you.
Leaving the spa, you realize, you feel a little less burdened. You seem to be more mindful of things you usually don’t notice. Does the grass seem a little greener? You never noticed those ducks walking to the lake near your house before. You just feel relaxed, calm, and at peace.
This is what a visit to ACQUA Wellness feels like when you make use of their floatation pods. The pods are known to help relieve anxiety, depression, digestive issues, and many more physical bonuses such as lowering blood pressure and heart rate.
