Allan and Jeanne Mills

Co-Owner's of Ocean Elements Salt Spa

Executive Director's of Pathways Research Center in Ocean Pines, Maryland

Allan and Jeanne Mills are the co-owners of Ocean Elements Salt Spa and Float Center in Ocean Pines, Maryland. They both floated for the first time last year and realized that it was such a unique experience that they wanted to open a business to enable people to feel the same healing of body and mind.

Ocean Elements is a Himalayan salt spa that provides a relaxing, distraction-free environment to indulge in the healing properties of salt therapy. The business works with individuals who suffer from chronic pain (back, neck, arthritis), fibromyalgia, stress, tension and PTSD. Ocean Elements assists clients in achieving better sleep, improved sports performance, younger looking skin, pain relief and detoxification. We use Epson Salts, which is kinder to the skin and doesn’t dry it out like conventional salt. Additionally, the absorption of magnesium and Sulphur (sulphate) through the skin helps to improve the body’s nutrient balance.

Flotation therapy is a luxurious escape from the constant stress of life’s daily pressures and a natural way to heal the body and mind. Float therapy uses a highly concentrated salt water solution to replicate weightlessness, thereby enabling complete muscle relaxation. Halotherapy provides symptomatic relief for chronic respiratory conditions. Halotherapy uses fine granules of salt that are passively inhaled into the lungs to reduce inflammation and absorb toxins.

Veteran Research Studies

We are looking for a group of veterans who are willing to fully participate in a research study using the latest and most advanced alternative healing modalities at Ocean Elements Salt Spa. Your participation and results have the potential to positively impact tens of thousands of veterans. The purpose of these research trials are to provide Pathways for Veterans and Ocean Elements Salt Spa real time Intel regarding the benefits of flotation, in conjunction with RestStation™ therapy, in reducing anxiety, stress and insomnia. These symptoms are considered to be underlying causes of the larger diagnosis commonly known as PTSD.  We are reaching out to Ocean Pines, Maryland area veterans, who currently receive their VA medical benefits, for their opinion and recommendations based on their own flotation and RestStation™ experiences.
