You know when you're stressed out and so tired all day but can't sleep? Same. It happens to the best of us.

What if I told you there was a spa treatment that mimicked getting four hours of sleep? I wish I was kidding. And what if I also told you this was the second floating dock of it's kind in the world? The other one being, of course, in Switzerland.

At Nordik Spa-Nature in Chelsea, they now offer what is called a Källa treatment. Essentially, it's a huge saltwater pool which is 5 metres deep and inside of a rock. The water is saturated with 12% Epsom salts, which is full of magnesium to help your muscles relax.

The recommended time to stay in the pool is 30 to 60 minutes, which will make you feel like you got in an insane nap. The pool is also completely silent, so you'll feel like you're the only one there. The water is set at 37 degrees celsius which is the perfect temperature to feel relaxed in.

If you're still for some reason not very intrigued, here are the amazing benefits of the Källa treatment:

  • Purifies the body
  • Promotes restful sleep
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Accelerates wound healing
  • Stimulates creativity
  • Reduces stress
  • Release physical and mental tension
  • Decreases inflammation

You're guaranteed to want to come here every week, especially since it is so affordable. Trying it out the first time is $60, however, for an extra $40, you have access to Källa any time it's open. If you're stressed, or know someone who is, this is the perfect gift for anyone. Floating in Källa is similar to floating in the Dead Sea, and has the same benefits.

You don't have to worry about doing anything in this pool. The water will take you where you need to go just by floating and you'll slowly fade into the most relaxed state possible. They only allow 20 people in the pool at a time, so you don't have to be anxious about bumping into people at every corner.
