November, let me float away.

November, let me float away.

  • November 7, 2017

I’ll come out and say it: November is hard to love. Everyone is tired, our energy levels are next to nothing, and our moods are, as I’d say, blah. When it isn’t night, it’s some shade of grey. On the rare days it’s clear, it’s also cold. It’s a sort of soupy mess connecting autumn and winter that drags on and on, taking all our enthusiasm for the day with it.

Since there’s nothing we can do about it, and since November is likely to come back next year just like every year before, the key to surviving the month is in our will to rise above it. As a wellness blogger, I’m going to let you in on a tip: yes, the thermal experience is a key ally in your wellness. Yes, a spa getaway has been proven to help release tension and clear your mind. Yes, it’s a fact that enjoying a relaxation break solo, as a couple, or with your friends is good for you. It is known. But to get the most out of your spa visit, I strongly recommend enhancing your experience with a Källa session. There, I’ve said it. Källa will become your best friend to make it through November unscathed. It will become a habit, even a tradition, an appointment not to be missed, year after year. This floating experience will become your lifeline to carry you to the shores of December. Let me explain.

First, Källa has an air of mystery about it. It’s a saltwater pool carved into the rock underground. You can get to it through the Panorama Lounge. The lighting is low, the temperature is comforting, and the ambience is peaceful. It’s like entering a whole new world. The shallow pool contains 10 tons of Epsom salt, diluted into 1200 cubic feet of water. The water temperature is kept at body temperature, making it quite comfortable. You slide into the water and… you’re floating away. It’s like the Dead Sea, but without the airfare to reach the Middle East. With the holidays approaching, your budget becomes tighter…

Källa lets you experience weightlessness. Let yourself go completely. Once you have surrendered yourself to the weightlessness, all your muscles will loosen, and you will achieve the pinnacle of relaxation. Some people even fall asleep in the pool. The Källa experience is known for its many benefits for the body and spirit, but given that it is November, I want to draw your attention to the fact that it promotes restorative sleep. It has been proven that 15 minutes in Källa is equivalent to one hour of sleep. Insomniacs and other exhausted people who wish they could sleep until noon on a Tuesday should seriously consider this treatment.

This is all thanks to the Epsom salt. When added to the water, the salt increases the water density, which allows us to float. That’s not all: when absorbed through our skin, the salt expels toxins, relaxes the nervous system, reduces swelling, and soothes aching muscles. It’s a great anti-stress and anti-inflammatory remedy.

I could talk about Källa forever, but there’s nothing better than experiencing it for yourself. There you have it, my wellness recommendation to survive this dark and dreary month.

This November, schedule yourself for some floatation therapy. You need it.
