Aqua Spa Float Center & Wellness Boutique a “Wellness Destination” for Services and Products

OSWEGO, NY – The company’s tagline reads “Rest. Relax. Rejuvenate” and when the new Aqua Spa Float Center & Wellness Boutique opens at the former Oswego City School District building in Oswego, later this year, visitors will be able to do just that, with a variety of wellness products and services.

“We will truly be a wellness destination,” said Aqua Spa owners and float ambassadors Terry LeRoi and Tammy Wilkinson. “While float therapy will be the core of our business and the majority of our clientele, the additional wellness modalities and services within our boutique will add to the visit and benefits.”

Float Therapy or sensory deprivation or R.E.S.T. (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) has been around since the 1950s, and people use a float tank or pod that contains a saturated solution of Epsom salt, provides a light and sound reduced environment, and is kept at skin temperature. This environment allows a person to float effortlessly without external stimuli for many purposes, including to relieve stress, recover from injuries, fight addiction and pain, meditation, and relaxation.

In addition to Float Therapy, the Aqua Spa will feature Halotherapy (also known as Salt Therapy); Cryotherapy (also known as Cold Therapy); Infrared Sauna; Oxygen Bar; and Massage. Other wellness products including healthy refreshments, organic supplements, and beauty products, will be available and expanded upon.

According to LeRoi and Wilkinson, demolition and construction on the 6,500 square foot float center and wellness boutique is underway, and the feedback within the community has been tremendous.

“We have been educating the community on the benefits of float therapy, floating facts, and knowledge on the diversity of our products and services we will be offering,” LeRoi and Wilkinson said. “There is a continuous learning opportunity because of the uniqueness of our industry.

“As people truly understand and experience these wellness benefits for themselves, the Aqua Spa will be an incredible asset to Oswego and the region.”
