Member Spotlight: Luna Float Spa & Salt Cave
Greetings from Luna Float Spa & Salt Cave, Colorado Springs’ premier relaxation destination – a serene, refreshing experience, for rejuvenation of mind and body. We are a prevention-oriented wellness spa utilizing a consciousness-based approach to healthcare. Check out our list of modalities and how they can assist you on your self-care journey.
Floating is an experience where you enter a float pod (also called a sensory deprivation tank or isolation tank), which is a well-engineered tub filled with 10-12 inches of water and about 1100 pounds of Epsom salt.
The goal of getting into a sensory deprivation tank is for the body and mind to enjoy deep rest and recovery by means of experiencing zero gravity from dense Epsom saltwater with little to no sensory inputs. The ideal is to float in complete darkness with no sounds, and no sense of touch (water is set to body temperature) to enter a deep state of rest. After about 30 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking & sleeping’ state. Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself; it’s the perfect time to reflect on your life. Studies indicate that floating increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you feeling pleasant for days afterwards.
Halotherapy is a dry salt therapy that utilizes a halogenerator to grind and crunch salt into micronized particles dispersed into our Salt Cave Temple via a dry salt aerosol which works to aid respiratory concerns and skin conditions. It is considered an alternative treatment for lung problems such as asthma, bronchitis, and cough. It is also, extremely relaxing!
One is encouraged to wear loose, comfortable clothing unless targeting a skin condition, then keep that area exposed. The salt is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and inhaled into the respiratory system.
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. It is naturally occurring from the sun. Near infrared waves have a shorter frequency range with the ability to penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin making it optimal for skin rejuvenation, wound healing, and skin health. Mid infrared wavelengths are mid-range and are beneficial for increasing circulation that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use in the mid infrared range has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after the sauna session is completed. Far infrared has been shown to increase exercise tolerance, speed muscle recovery, and promote muscle growth. It also increases metabolism and rids the body of toxins that cause obesity, promoting weight loss.
