Floatation is a term that refers to ultimate relaxation in a zero gravity environment. It has also been called Reduced Environmental Stimulation (REST) or Sensory Deprivation.
Participants float in a warm, dense solution of water, and Epsom salts in a light proof and sound proof chamber. The floater may choose a quiet float or opt for piped-in relaxing music or hypnotic suggestions. The float may be dark or with a light on, and the door to the tank can be left open or closed. Either way, it is a totally private and deeply relaxing experience. Shower and changing room are provided. For the Sensory Deprivation experience, choose quiet and dark, and consider a 2-hour float.

Massage therapy refers to manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) that are integral to the human body. Consistent manipulation of these areas enhances a person’s overall health and reduces stress. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).

People seek massage therapy for many reasons – to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce various forms of pain, and promote overall health and wellness. Massage can also improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue, promote faster healing, improve posture, promote better sleep patterns, lower blood pressure, and improve concentration.
Massage is also one of the oldest healing arts with records documenting massage 3,000 years ago in China. The ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians also used massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates, the father of medicine, recommended the use of “rubbing and friction” for joint and circulatory problems in ancient Greece.
The massage therapists and other body work professionals at MindSpa have extensive experience and training to provide a variety of massage modalities based on the needs of each client. The first step is an assessment to determine a person’s overall health, their specific needs and an evaluation of their posture.

CST is a gentle, noninvasive hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. CST focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The gentle touch technique reduces or alleviates stress and pain by releasing compression in these vital areas.
CST involves monitoring and improving the function of the semi-closed hydraulic system contained within a touch waterproof membrane (the Dura Mater) which envelopes and helps protect the brain and spinal cord. The CST-trained therapist focuses on supporting the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using therapeutic touch to regulate the joints of the cranium.
The practitioner applies light touch to the client’s skull, face, spine and pelvis to release tensions deep within the body that relieves pain and dysfunction in order to improve whole body health and performance. Patients often report feelings of deep relaxation during and after the treatment session.
Conditions benefiting from CST:
- Migraines and Headaches
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
- Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
- Chronic Fatigue
- Learning Disabilities
- ADD / ADHD
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Orthopedic Problems
- And Other Conditions

Introducing CranioSacral Therapy
This is a type of sauna that produces deep penetrating heat through heat generators operating in the Far infrared area of the electromagnetic spectrum. This provides the beneficial effects of sunlight without the harmful effects of UV radiation. The skin is the major beneficiary of Far infrared heat through increased blood circulation, profuse sweating and improved elasticity.
Far infrared sauna therapy is said to duplicate the healthy frequencies of our own cells, which selectively absorb these rays causing the water in the cells to react by resonant absorption.
This causes toxins in the cells to be eliminated and excreted in sweat. A typical sauna session will cause a brief 1-3 degree increase in body temperature. This induced fever can trigger the production of white blood cells and killer T cells, thereby boosting immunity.
The Far infrared wavelength of light has the ability to warm objects without warming the air between the objects and the source. Far infrared saunas are more comfortable because they operate at temperatures of 100-130 degrees F compared to conventional saunas which operate at 180-220 degrees F. Far infrared rays penetrate 1.5 to 3 inches into tissues producing three times as much heat as traditional saunas. Warm up only takes about 10 minutes compared to 30-90 minutes for conventional saunas.
