Sukhino Float Center
Located in the Kalu Center in downtown New Albany, Sukhino offers floatation therapy and halotherapy, both of which are centered around the therapeutic properties of salt, in its various forms. Float therapy involves stepping into their spacious float rooms and lying back into 10 inches of skin temperature water that's mixed with over 1000 pounds of Epsom salt. Float effortlessly for up to 90 minutes, enjoying silence or music, colorful lights, or pure darkness. Not only is floating great for relieving aches and pains in the body, but it's also a blissful break for your brain. To experience the benefits of halotherapy spend 45 minutes in their playful, peaceful salt cave. Breathe in the salty air while you rest in a treehouse cave environment as you've never seen. Halotherapy is not only relaxing and rejuvenating, but it can be helpful for respiratory and skin conditions.
