Floatation Therapy, also called Sensory Deprivation, relaxes the mind and body.
what does floatation therapy feel like?
Floatation therapy is a unique experience that is perceived differently by individuals, but most commonly it is described as relaxing in outer space.
The 1.100 pounds of Epsom salt creates a gravity free environment that enables you to completely let go of muscle tension, and the water is kept at a temperature that is skin-receptor neutral, which means you lose track of where your body ends and the water begins.
Ideally, you should float in complete darkness with no sound (sensory deprivation) so that you can be free of external stimuli and achieve maximum relaxation. But, at Clark Salon and Spa you are in complete control of your experience and can choose to listen to music and also to have a light on.
