Float your cares away in Auriga Spa’s Flota­tion Ther­apy


Off to one cor­ner of Capella Shang­hai is Auriga Spa, which of­fers a menu of lux­u­ri­ous treat­ments in lo­cally in­spired holis­tic heal­ing meth­ods – from an­cient prac­tices of Tra­di­tional Chi­nese Well­ness and the lat­est spa tech­nolo­gies and treat­ments. Take your pick from her­bal baths, a vi­tal­ity pool, a sauna, a steam room, Hy­poxi weight-loss ma­chines, an im­pres­sive salt-wall lounge and a flota­tion tank, an hour in which prom­ises to re­lax mind, body and spirit to send you off to a good night’s sleep. What does it feel like in­side the tank? Strangely sur­real and re­lax­ing. The bather floats in­side in what is es­sen­tially salt wa­ter sur­rounded by coloured lights and chill-out mu­sic, which are all de­signed to put the mind in a trance-like state, al­most. The re­sult? You come out of it feel­ing as if you’ve trav­elled to some di­men­sion. Is it re­lax­ing? Type A per­son­al­i­ties might have a hard time let­ting go and just floating away, but once you sur­ren­der, it’s bliss.
