Winner: FLOAT

4535 Fredericksburg Road, Suite 201, (210) 562-3310,

FLOAT gives San Antonians the opportunity to experience the relaxing and rejuvenating properties of the next big self-care trend: sensory deprivation tanks. Although the name sounds like it came right out of a science fiction show (Stranger Things, anyone?), the pampering experience found within the facility's soundproof tanks is the real deal. Guests of the spa can float their busy, day-to-day lives away on a buoyant mixture of water and Epsom salt as they listen to the sound of relaxing music and relieve stress on their circulatory systems. As the water maintains a constant temperature of 93.5 degrees, the same temperature as our bodies, floaters will experience the tranquility of a no-distractions environment free of stimulation and touch. The treatment is said to lower the body's production of adrenaline while heightening dopamine and endorphin levels, increasing a person's overall positivity and brain function. FLOAT has given the gift of relaxation to numerous stressed individuals, most notably veterans and active duty military members living with PTSD.
