If you don’t slow down and take time for some R&R, your body will force you to sooner or later.

To help you prevent potential burnout, we’ve rounded up some ways to treat yourself to some relaxation in the Circle City.

Heal the mind, body, and soul

Visit Indianapolis Salt Cave to experience a man-made re-creation of the environmental conditions found within a natural underground salt mine — a micro-climate which produces ideal atmospheric breathing conditions. Sessions are 45 minutes long and can accommodate up to seven people at a time.

All things wellness

Visit Epicenter-Indy, a co-working space for holistic health practitioners in Bates-Hendricks. This space knows how to keep the good vibes alive, offering everything from community acupuncture sessions on Thursdays to massages and meditation sessions.

Pro tip: It’s hosting a Silent Retreat featuring meditation, sound baths, Reiki healing, and breath work on Sunday, Feb. 26 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Get tickets.

Sweat it out

Sauna Social is a converted school bus with a sauna in the back, a cold shower, and a lounge where guests can breathe through their hot-cold experience before returning back to the sauna. The business launched earlier this year to help the community explore the potential health benefits of using a sauna.

You can find it parked in Fountain Square on weekends or you can reserve the bus for you and a group of seven others and have it parked at your location.
