Soak is an invitation to collectively restore and revitalise mentally, emotionally and physically within the shared experience of a healing magnesium-rich foot bath. An inclusive, safe and playful sanctum held over two weekends in May, Wreckers Artspace will become a wellness destination. Concerns around the increase of diagnosed magnesium deficiencies in our bodies and decreasing magnesium levels in our soil and foods inspired the consideration to impart, educate and improve upon these statistics in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
