TESTIMONIALS

Heaven absolute relaxation heaven! My upper back and neck have been killing me lately so I thought I would check out Vitality. 60 minutes in the float tank, then a 30minute neck & shoulder massage & cupping treatment with Summer. My entire body feels so relaxed and calm and I still feel as though I’m floating. The spa was so clean, smelled amazing, and the ambiance & energy of the place was that of absolute tranquility. It was heaven! Can’t wait to return.
— Michele S.
Being 20 weeks pregnant, my first floating experience at Vitality was just what I needed to not feel so heavy and have some much needed me-time. I had been having a lot of tension in my back and neck. After floating, I feel more aware of where I hold my stress in my physical body even outside of the tank. I am always looking for ways to take better care of myself both physically and mentally and am so glad that I found floating at Vitality!

FLOAT THERAPY

A float tank is a large bathtub that is designed to reduce distractions: lights, sounds, gravity and tactile sensations. Once you lie in the float tank about 80-90% of neuromuscular activity is decreased.
At skin temperature and 1000 pounds of Epsom salt, the water you'll find yourself reclined in will have you losing track of where it ends and your body begins.

CUPPING

The goal of massage cupping is to stimulate blood flow and nutrients to areas of your body that are dehydrated and stagnant.  Your lymphatic system will start cleansing your body of heavy metals, old blood and metabolic waste.  The enhanced circulation to your tissues will use the nutrients to revitalize your cells to create optimal functionality of your muscles and organs. Massage and cupping help your body with digestion, boosts immunity, reduces inflammation, detoxifies stagnant areas, calms your nervous system and increases vitality.

THAI BODYWORK

Thai Bodywork is a slow-paced healing session during which the therapist uses their hands, feet, elbows, and knees to compress the muscles, stimulate acupressure points and gently stretch the body, allowing deep relaxation, decompression, opening and relief. Thai herbal compresses are often used (and may be requested) to achieve warming of the skin, deeper fluidity within the body, and transdermal application of the healing herbs within.

This practice occurs on a comfortable, cushioned mat on the floor, and the client is asked to wear clothing they can move in (yoga pants, etc.), as the client does not remove clothing to receive this work.

REIKI

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is the art of healing by universal energy, which flows through the practitioner to the client. Reiki treats the whole person: re-balancing the body, mind, and spirit while stimulating the body's natural ability to heal itself. It has been found to help all types of illnesses by relieving symptoms + aiding speedy recovery and supports mental + emotional healing.

Sessions take place fully clothed on a table. The client relaxes while the practitioner places their hands over the chakras, injured areas and other potentially blocked areas. Sessions are tailored to each individual and include use of the amethyst infrared biomat, aromatherapy, as well as crystals and sound therapy if needed/requested. Many clients report feeling a sense of comfort, well being and deep relaxation.
