2014 Mental Detox

Halcyon Floats

You’ll slip into a capsule filled with water so densely salted that you’ll bob on the surface, Dead Sea-style. And there you’ll stay, in a pitch-black, (mostly) silent room, for 90 minutes. It’s totally natural to feel skeptical about something called a “float spa,” but this is about as unplugged as you can get: A no-phone policy leaves you no option but to relax as hard as you have in months.
