Liquid Sound

Liquid Sound............................(2791.jpg)

Our senses absorb the world differently when we are under water. Apparently, we can absorb sound through our skin and bones while we are floating, the vibrations stimulating our senses and awakening our souls. This is the philosophy of Liquid Sound, a revolutionary spa technique pioneered in Germany.

Bathing in light and sound, say its creators, is as natural as the world around us: 'For thermal baths this is revolutionary, but for the oceans this is nothing new – the troubadours of the oceans, the whales, have been giving underwater poetry readings and concerts for 40 million years, live, day and night.'

In fact this sensual experience is so profound that even the deaf and hard of hearing can feel music under water.

If you want to float in a body-temperature salt pool while light and ambient tunes waft over you, visit the Liquidrom in Berlin, or one of the Toksana Thermae spas in Bad Sulza and Bad Schandau.

These spas boast futuristic architecture, laser lights, a variety of pools, and music inspired by nature. At the Toksana spas, they also stage late-night events – with live DJ sets and light shows.

With luck they'll be traveling soon – the Standard Hotel in Miami has already made plans to install a system in its spa. In the meantime we'll all have to make do with bath salts, whale music and candlelight. RM
