Renew Float Spa Opens at Kendall Yards
Renew Float Spa customers are placed in “float pods” to float in 10 inches of water so saturated with Epsom salts that they are more buoyant than the Dead Sea. The float allows you to feel almost weightless, releasing stress and tension. Everything is kept at skin temperature, making it impossible to tell where your body ends and the water begins. The tanks are thoroughly sound-proofed, and you float in complete darkness. About 30-minutes into your float, your brain starts producing extra dopamine and endorphins, which boost your mood.
