A spa that features flotation therapy tanks has reopened in its new spot just off Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda.

Hope Floats spa opened earlier this month at 4709 Chase Ave., less than a year after owner Kimberly Boone moved the business out of her house and into a space at 4811 Battery Lane. 

Because of demolition and redevelopment coming to the Battery Lane building, Boone had to move quickly to build out the new spa space just a few blocks away.

Hope Floats closed temporarily in May and reopened a few weeks ago on Chase Avenue. The flotation tanks are used for Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy or REST therapy, which Boone practices. Sessions usually run an hour or 90 minutes. The spa also has an infrared sauna room.

The Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce is set to hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new spa location on Sept. 4, with refreshments and tours of the space.
