The Healing Path Day Spa offers a variety of services designed to help you unwind and release all of the tension built up in your body. To give both your body and mind feeling fresh and rejuvenated, we recommend the Journey to Wellness combination. Visitors can either start with a massage for a float therapy session before advancing onto the next session.
For the massage, you can select a Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, or Custom Massage. If you have never heard of a float therapy session before, it is a type of sensory deprivation therapy designed to help your brain enter a deeply relaxed state. During the float therapy session, you can let your body gently float in the IsoPod Float Tank. This tank is filled with 95.1-degree water and diluted with over 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt.
“Had a couples massage here today with my husband. Great greeting right when you walk in. Your lead into a beautiful dressing/changing room. Then on to a waiting room that's lit with beautiful candles and relaxing music. While you wait for your room. Then on to your room, you go! Awesome massage awaits!” - Yelp Review
