4 Ways To Not Go Totally And Completely Crazy During The Winter

Winter. The season where you cancel as many plans as possible and wear your blanket as a jacket. But it doesn't have to all that bad! There are a few weeks that we like to stay warm that don't involve eating a ton of hot soup.

 

Warm up inside with Floatation.

Floatation involves lying in a super-saturated Epsom-salt solution about 30cm deep. The salt water solution is heated to skin temperature 35.5C. Once you are settled, it is almost impossible to tell which parts of your body are in the water and which aren’t. The high density of our saline solution will make you feel completely weightless, letting every single muscle in your body fully relax. The float pods are specifically designed to block out all external distractions, such as sights, sounds, tactile sensations and gravity. http://floatculture.co.nz

Try the Japanese Enzyme Spa Treatment.

Enzyme Spa is a traditional Japanese deep heating ritual tracing its origins over 90 years. Made from a unique blend of rice bran, pinewood sawdust and Japanese enzymes carefully sourced from organic fruits, vegetables, mushrooms and seaweeds grown in Hokkaido, Japan. This warming, dry spa releases tension, detoxifies the body and both invigorates and softens skin. https://www.ikoispa.co.nz
