SARASOTA - Seniors in this retirement community diligently
packed the local Y, sweating to keep their bodies fit.
After their workout, though, some couldn't remember where they put their keys.
Watching this scenario unfold, neurotherapist George Rozelle
thought: Wouldn't it be great to have a health club for the mind?
And so it was born: the Mind Spa.
Clients here go from machine to machine, too.
They don headphones of soothing music and goggles with flashing lights as one chair rotates them in figure 8s.
Then they lie in a flotation tank for sensory deprivation - no sound, no
light, not even any touch, as salt water buoys them.
The aim is exercising the brain, not the body.
