Alternative health methods becoming more mainstream


Sun Times/Shopper Dave Sulz


Thankhank you Lethb idge!


Lethbridge! T


he field of alternative health has advanced far from the days when anything outside the boundaries of mainstream health services was


viewed with suspicion. With a growing number of people seeking alternatives to pills, there’s a greater acceptance of treatment methods that were once considered “hocus-pocus,” says Zach Palmarin, who owns and operates Tranquility Float Centre. Tranquility Float Centre,


located at #1, 553 40 St. S., topped the new category of Best Alternative Health Service in the annual Best of the Best survey conducted by the Sun Times/Shopper. “People are looking for


alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs,” Palmarin says. “Not everyone wants to be on pain meds all the time or taking as much. A lot of people are open to the new concepts.” These new concepts include the


therapies available at Tranquility Float Centre, one of which is “floating,” an epsom salt bath that goes way beyond what you might do in your bathtub at home. “You’re floating in water with 1,100

pounds of magnesium epsom salts,” says Palmarin. The result is a kind of zero- gravity experience that allows for complete relaxation and aids in stress relief, pain reduction and injury recovery. “In this state the stress hormone


cortisol is reduced and the endorphins


such as dopamine and serotonin are increased,” says the Tranquility Float website. The oxygen lounge combines 92 per


cent pure oxygen with aromatherapy to provide a similarly relaxing atmosphere that offers healthful benefits, too. And the infrared sauna is a dry-heat sauna that allows for deeper tissue penetration that helps the body detoxify. While all three methods


offer health benefits, Palmarin says most customers come for the relaxation benefits. In an effort to offer even


more of a spa experience, the business has branched out into making its own soaps, epsom salt mixes, shampoo and body washes, all natural and “using the best ingredients,” he notes. He finds as time goes


on, people are increasingly open to trying alternative methods. “We’re going into Year 3 and every year


it’s more and more integrated into the norm,” says Palmarin. “Now it’s more of an everyday thing for people.” That greater acceptance is evidenced in


the firm’s growth. “Business-wise we’re seeing that,” he


says. “Our membership base is growing more.” Palmarin appreciates the Best of the


Best recognition as a sign that what his business offers is welcomed. “It definitely is validation,” he says. “It’s


nice to see that people know about it.” Find out more online at
