There are many beauty services that offer relaxation in the Jewellery Quarter and in its surrounding areas. That range from threading, waxing, haircuts, manicures and even to massages. As well as a new service that is unique and a wonder for your wellbeing. We compiled a list of some of the best places to visit to get relaxation and melt away your stress.

The Floating Spa

The Floating Spa specialises in floatation. This is where you enter a somewhat science-fiction looking device or float tank that is filled with Epsom salts. The tank’s water is at a temperature (35.5C) that matches the skin. The temperature allows your heart rate to slow down and calm down. Melting away any stresses, distractions, and noises. You can float weightlessly, yet be supported fully from the salts.

The benefits of a floatation continue. It can help to relieve anxiety, depression, and motivation. As well as help with fatigue and jet lag. It can also help to improve sleep and help with insomnia. People with muscle strains, arthritis, migraines as well as general aches and pains, benefit immensely from a float. A float is also a great alternative to those that do not like massages.

A variety of people can use The Floating Spa because of its array of benefits. Those can be athletes, creatives, pregnant woman, those in business, the elderly, people with medical challenges and everyone else.

We are happy to see the arrival of The Floating Spa to the Jewellery Quarter. Innovate, non-intrusive and an amazing unique concept to Birmingham. So why haven’t you visited it yet? Get more information here.
