Ashland, February, 2008â€”For those people who practice meditation and tranquility as a process of life and living, a new center for relaxation has floated into downtown Ashland. Zenwest Floatation Center, at 130 A Street, Suite 2, has emerged as a center to promote health and a balanced life by eluding gravity. A truly new experience to those in the Southern Oregon region.
Zenwest Floatation Center is a new alternative health and meditation experience. Clients spend an hour suspended in a solution of Epsom salt and warm water (93.5 degrees, skin temperature), which is so dense that you float effortlessly. The solution is held in a state of the art free standing unit that is similar in size to a sauna room.
Why Float? The experience improves athletic performance and shortens recovery time for muscles. Floating also strengthens the immune system, alleviates pain and speeds healing. Mental benefits include increased creativity, heightened self-awareness and a simple fast method to an incredibly deep meditative state.
Zenwest Floatation Center is housed in an oasis of peace and tranquility, a relaxing environment, with two floatation units for rent by the hour.
Floatation involves lying on your back on 10 inches of a dense Epsom salt solution. The solution is so dense that you float spontaneously, like a cork, effortlessly, and warmed to skin temperature. The room is insulated against light and sound providing a profoundly restful and stress relieving environment.
The units include a large upright door opening for easy access, internal soft lighting with air switch for easy customer control and built in speakers for optimum sound quality that enhances the floating experience.
