The Dead Sea is quite a hike for most of us, but luckily many U.S. spas are recreating the extremely buoyant and therapeutic water experience through Floatation Therapy. Adrift Float Spa in Dallas, Texas, is one of the revolutionary facilities offering the treatment – And for only $50 during Spa Week!

Here’s the breakdown: “Float tanks” are filled with 10 inches of water and 1,200 pounds of Epsom salt in order to achieve a zero gravity environment that allows your muscular, skeletal and circulatory system to rest and rejuvenate. It’s particularly beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain, injuries, or addiction recovery – But we’ve also uncovered some secret perks that everyone can enjoy. Here are 5 facts you didn’t know about floating spa treatments:

#1 Floating drains the lymph nodes, which diminishes the appearance of cellulite and creates radiant and glowing skin.

#2 Salts in the water provide exfoliation and restore moisture and electrolytes to the skin.

#3 Floatation improves blood flow, allowing for muscles to recover more quickly and diminish soreness.

#4 Magnesium, a component of the Epsom salt, is best absorbed through the skin and can lower stress and improve sleep.

#5 The extreme relaxation releases endorphins and serotonin – The brain chemicals responsible for producing feelings of happiness.
