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.

Laser and Injectables - Should have done it sooner!

This was my first experience with any type of injectables/laser treatments. I felt at ease with the physican and staff. They were very friendly and made me feel welcome. The gave me a tour of their facility, which was very clean, modern. I am no longer a botox virgin! My frown line has diminished, little by little, each day! I also had laser treatments for my eyes and for a vericose vein on my thigh. You wouldn't believe the results after just one treatment! I wish I had the pictures to share with you. Anyway, I highly recommend this establishment...why wait...make an appointment now! I wish I would have made my sooner!
