How is this procedure performed?

- The flotation tank water contains high concentration of Epsom salt (Magnesium sulfate) creating a highly buoyant water surface where your body floats over.

- The flotation therapy includes sensory deprivation where there is no light or sound stimulation. At the same time you feel you are weightlessly floating in space. This situation resembles meditation or deep relaxed sleep where our brain produces theta and delta waves rather than alpha and beta waves.

Massages help with the healing process

I go for lymphatic massages ever since I had a procedure done at the neighboring Akkary Surgery Center. I HIGHLY recommend anybody that has a procedure done to book several follow-up appointments at the Medspa with Ashley. She knows several techniques that are able to break up new and old scar tissue on the body. This not only helps with the healing process but also ensures that you maintain the results you expect! Could not recommend any higher!!
