"EFFORTLESSLY FLÖTING IN A ZERO GRAVITY POD IS THE BEST WAY TO WITHDRAW FROM THE STRESSES OF LIFE AND RECHARGE YOUR MIND AND BODY. COMPLETE YOUR WELLNESS WITH SKIN CARE, MASSAGE AND REIKI THERAPIES IN CONJUNCTION WITH AVEDA HAIR CARE, SKIN CARE, BODY CARE AND LIFESTYLE PRODUCTS."- Flöt Spa
I first learned of "floating" during my travels to South Africa. A pod is suppose to ease the pain of jet lag and cure most aliments that your body is facing. 90% of the pod is filled with epsom salt and the rest is water. Flöt Spa owner, Ryan Landy, a native of South Africa, explained that "your mind and beauty will undergo a deep sleep that will allow you to completely relax mentally & physically."
When I first stepped into the spa room, I showered before hand with their amazing Aveda products. The lovely consultant explained to me how to "work the pod". Once she left, she turned on the pod, I allowed it to finish sterilizing, then I stepped into 12" of water. Armed with a swim cap, ear plugs, and light-blocking goggles, I was excited to see what the rave was about!
Literally forty minutes later, my body woke me up. I drifted off into a deep sleep and had no idea! I felt amazing. My body was floating on it's on. Once the hour was over, I felt calm & relaxed, it was the same type of high you experience after a massage.
Next step, reike! So what is Reike?:
"Reiki is a method of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The technique was developed in Japan and is administered by the laying on of hands. It is based on the idea that all living things have a special energy flowing through them called life energy. When your life energy is high, you'll feel strong and confident, be more relaxed and centered and less likely to get sick. When it is low, you'll often feel tired, be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness."- Ryan Landy
Ok I must admit, I was the biggest skeptic, during the service and a bit after. It's been a week since I experienced it and I must say I feel like I can conquer the world. My confidence is at an all time high, I feel happier and I am a bit nicer!
I give Flöt Spa two thumbs up! If you are ever in Atlanta, Ga, give Flöt Spa a visit! You won't regret it!
