by appointment only
Mon, Wed, Fri 10am-8pm Tue, Thu, Sat 10am-6pm
We are still operating by appointment only and we're asking everyone to wear a mask to enter. We will wear masks during your entire visit.
2020 was a challenging year for all of us. For anyone who is concerned about their gift cards expiring, please don't be. Due to the mandatory Covid-19 shutdown for 3 months last spring, we have extended everyone's gift cards out through 2021. We appreciate the continued support of our loyal followers and those new customers who are just discovering us.
We have moved to an appointment based business and for that reason if you drop by the spa without an appointment we may not be here. Essentially we don't take walk-ins. You can book your own float appointments by using our online booking tool.
We will need to book all massages and Spa Day packages for you, so please use the Request a Package form or leave a voicemail with a couple of days and times that might work for you and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

WELCOME TO GLOWSPA
At glowspa in Mount Pleasant, SC, it's our goal to ensure that you leave relaxed and comfortable after you've visited our business. Our focus is on improving your physical and mental well-being by providing unique services delivered by a professional and caring staff.
We want to help you meet your wellness goals by offering various pricing options. You can purchase single services, series of 3 or 6 sessions or you can realize the deepest savings by signing up for one of our no hassle membership offerings. We also offer spa day packages that allow you to combine our spa rituals to better take care of your mental and physical well-being.
We would prefer all float sessions be booked via our online booking tool vs calling into the spa. You can reserve both tanks if you are booking for two people, you can redeem float gift cards to reserve the tanks and you can even join a wait list if the spot you'd like to come in is already reserved.
For anyone looking to do Massage services or Spa Day packages you can't use the online booking tool. We ask that you use the Contact us form here or give us a call at (843) 388-9195 to schedule an appointment. Please give us a couple of days and times to look at for you. We also need the name of any one joining you for the visit.
We do offer discounts to military/veterans, students, and first responders with valid IDs at checkout. If you want to reserve a service and want the discount prior to coming in, we recommend you buy a $50 or $100 gift card online depending on your desired spa service. The gift card will be used as your reservation fee, and when contact us to schedule the appointment you will already be in the system with a reservation fee on file. The day of your visit you will just pay the difference of your service minus the gift card. Once you've shown the ID at the desk we can apply a discount code to your profile so all future bookings will be covered at the discounted rate.
What is Float Therapy?
Floating in a flotation tank, also known as float therapy, is the one of the most effective means of stress relief and relaxation you can ever experience. You will strip down to your birthday suit and enter an enclosed in a large bathtub-like structure filled with 10 inches of water, kept at ~93.5 degrees with ~1,100 pounds of Epsom salt. Air flows into the room and there are no latches or anything that will prevent you from getting out at anytime. Once you lay down your body will float effortlessly in the water, we promise no extra effort is required!
If we can remove the sensory inputs to our brains- those inputs that do all the critical things like seeing, balancing, thinking, processing etc. It allows our brains to chill for a little while which then allows the creative and more relaxed parts of our brains come out and enjoy the spotlight. By removing the constant pressure to analyze and process everything around us; the magic starts to happen and our cotisol (major chemical component of stress) levels begin to lower.
As well, by not fighting gravity our muscles, joints, and bones get a well-deserved break. With the salt water doing the work, now our brains and bodys have a lot more capacity to focus on healing and resting. Many people with chronic and acute pain feel improvements because the muscles get better blood flow and they don't have to adjust their positions to get comfortable or relax.
Researchers have found that about 30-40 minutes into your float your brain stops producing its normal Alpha and Beta waves and starts going deeper into a Theta and even Delta state (that's where the magic happens)!
The most relaxing, healing techniques available in advanced methods of massage therapy are practiced at glowspa. We offer a variety of styles and choices in massage therapy to create your healing massage experience. Our massage therapists will help you enjoy the benefits of pain relief, joint flexibility, reduced depression and anxiety, improved sleep quality, increased energy, better circulation, reduced fatigue, enhanced immunity, and more.
** Please Note: We do not offer couples massages. We have two massage rooms to accomodate two people at the same time, but we don't have the facilities to accomodate 4 people & 2 massage beds in one room.
