Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, has been around hundreds of years. In fact, the practice can be traced all the way back to the 12th century in Poland. And now the folks at Fleauxt (pronounced “float”) have brought it to Baton Rouge.
Effortlessly float in 10 inches of water filled with 1,000 pounds of epsom salts for 60 or 90-minutes and fall into a deep state of relaxation.
Floating in these sensory deprivation tanks (or tubs) is thought to help with stress relief, anxiety relief, muscle injury, and arthritis just to name a few.
These rooms are both lightproof and soundproof, and this peaceful environment frees you of noise, gravity and any other distractions going on. It's truly the best place to get away from it all and let your mind drift into 'nothingness'.
Don't want to be in complete darkness? Don't worry.
They have floating light balls that release the perfect amount of glow to keep you relaxed. You can even pick out what color you want, or let the ball continuously change colors.
If you'd rather stay dry, you can sit in a relaxing salt room, where fine salt dust is pumped into the air.
Breathing in the salt is believed to improve your respiratory system, skin conditions (psoriasis/eczema/acne) and improve serotonin production in the brain.
