A sensory deprivation tank may not sound like an incredibly pleasant thing, but when you fully understand what it is, and what the benefits are, you’ll realize that “float pods” can be incredibly enticing. If you’re looking to get away and relax, to let your mind rest, and to take a break from the outside stress, visit Riverspointe Spa in downtown Estes Park. Our salon and spa is passionate about providing a calm and peaceful environment where visitors can truly let go and unwind.

What is a Float Pod?

Our pod at Riverspointe is filled with 900 pounds of Epsom salts mixed with 10 inches of filtered water. The water is kept at the same temperature of your skin, so when you get in and lay back, it will feel completely weightless, letting you really immerse yourself in the experience.

While a float pod is about removing all sensory elements, some guests at Riverspointe feel more at ease having some music playing in the background. During your 60- or 90-minute float, you will have control over the music and the lights in the room, so you can turn them on or off whenever you need a change in environment.

Why Visit Riverspointe Spa For a Soak in Our Float Pod?

Good For the Soul

Soaking in a float pod is good for you not only because it provides time to rest and relax, but it can help ease your mind and help you physically. If you’re someone whose brain is constantly in overdrive, it can be difficult to turn off that internal voice, but this is the perfect opportunity to focus on your breath, how the salt feels on your skin, and how it feels to be weightless in the water. No distractions, no emails, no text messages, just time for yourself.

Good For Your Skin

There’s a good chance that anyone visiting a spa wants to improve the look and tone of their skin while also having some time for themselves. A float pod provides both of these benefits. The Epsom salt helps soften your hair and skin, and helps your body detox. Epsom salt contains magnesium, which helps stimulate cell activity in order to release toxins from the body.

Helps You Sleep

If you have ever taken a long bath at home, you’ll know how it feels to get out and feel immensely relaxed and ready for bed. After one session in a float pod, your muscles will feel relaxed and tension in your shoulders and neck will be reduced. During the float, the level of the stress hormone cortisol is reduced, making it even easier to let your mind and body unwind.

Find Benefits For Yourself

Taking time for yourself at a spa is about finding the little things that will benefit you the most! At Riverspointe Spa, we want everyone to get the most out of their experience, so we make it easy for the session to be just about you and your needs. You can create an environment that will help soothe your mind and will give you the best chance of giving your body everything it needs.

Whether it’s for personal alone time, so you can get away from technology, so you can feel how soft your skin will be, or help clear your mind of thoughts, our float pod is the perfect escape.
