Vladimir Turovskiy specializes in Oriental and integrative functional medicine. For over 20 years he has been helping his patients in South Florida manage pain, hormonal imbalances, emotional difficulties, and weight problems with techniques ranging from acupuncture to floatation. Over the last three years, he has consolidated his practice (the Center for Integrative Medicine) and now he exclusively sees patients at his office at the âme Spa and Wellness Collective at Turnberry Isle Miami. The relaunch and renovation of the spa facility at Turnberry Isle meant Vladimir could install two floatation bath chambers to meet a growing demand from consumers looking to benefit from this unique treatment.
Floatation is part therapy, part meditation, part transcendence and all relaxation. Classically known as “sensory deprivation,” floatation therapy is suitable for yogis, professionals, athletes, meditators, and everyone in between. Much like the Dead Sea, the floatation bath filled with over a thousand pounds of Epsom salt creates an environment of weightlessness floating. Soothing light and music is optional and provides an oasis for those in search of healing. Therapy can be provided without light and music with the chamber hatch closed, blocking all sensory input and enabling a deep meditative state.
As Dr. Turovskiy describes: “With floatation therapy you don’t know where your body ends and where the environment begins. The water is at body temperature, the salt lets you float and the absence of sensory input allows your brain to shut off and reboot. The treatment has enormous benefits and is used for meditation and relaxation, to treat emotional concerns like anxiety and depression, and to alleviate physical pain. It is transformational.”
Floatation therapy sessions can be as short as one hour and as long as five — depending on the meditative state, experience, and the desire of the clients. Immerse yourself at the âme Spa.
