Frequently asked questions
How does massage help me with self care?
We almost didn't add this one to the FAQs since massage is the number one thing people think of when it comes to self care!
Massage is likely the oldest of all healing traditions. It helps reduce muscle tension, improves circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system, and overall is all about relaxation.
How does floating help me with self care?
You'll benefit at multiple levels from your float sessions.
Physically, you'll feel amazing as you float weightlessly & effortlessly in warm water saturated with Epsom salt. Floating does wonders for sore backs & muscles, plus it reduces blood pressure.
Mentally, the float environment helps you relax profoundly by allowing you to slip into theta state and stay there. Studies show that the relaxation from a single float session lasts a full 24 hours.
Finally, repeated float sessions create compounded results, with 3 sessions in short succession being the best way to start floating.
Is this safe? (especially in light of COVID-19)
1) We work with a few clients at a time and everything is cleaned completely in between each service.
2) With regard to floating, coronaviruses are inactivated by contact with water. In addition, floating is a naturally isolated & clean experience. Floating is what we like to call "maximum social distancing" as it's one person at a time, inside a pod, inside of a room, inside of a very low traffic center. Additionally, each person must shower completely both before and after floating. Unlike public pools, the float solution is cleaned completely at least 3x over between each client using a combination of hydrogen peroxide, UV light, and 10 micron filters. Our water is tested and treated twice each day, and again overnight.
3) With regard to infrared sauna, coronaviruses are inactivated by the heat of the sauna. In addition, it is also an isolated & clean experience. The sauna is for one person (or one couple) at a time, inside of a room, inside our low traffic center. The sauna is cleaned between each use, and a clients are invited to shower both before and after their session.
4) With regard to personal services like massage, the service is provided one on one in either the massage therapy room, again in our low-traffic space. The service provider wears a mask and washes their hands thoroughly prior to each session, and the space is cleaned & sheets changed between each session.
