Treat her to a truly unique and totally relaxing sensory deprivation experience at a float spa. Unwind, sip on tea, and soak in the serenity as you wait for your float in the peaceful library/waiting room, and then part ways and climb into your own luxurious sensory deprivation float pod, where you’ll experience the feeling of complete weightlessness as you float in water with over 800lbs of Epsom Salt dissolved into it. You’ll leave feeling totally restored and rejuvenated, and she will too!

BONUS: Get flowers and a float in time for Mother’s Day via Metta³ Rest Spa and Mayhew Sherwood Florist, including a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and a 1-hour float session for only $100 ($155 value).

  1. The Cryo Bar looks pretty interesting to me. I’ve done ice cold baths a couple times—uncomfortable as heck when you start. But after a few minutes you start to get used to it. By the time you’re done, you feel like a million bucks. I suspect this isn’t as comfortable, but maybe it’s got the same benefits? Maybe I’ll see if my mom will take me up on trying this together. Might have to trick her to get her in the building by telling her it’s a dessert place. LOL ;)
