With prodding from Golden State’s new head of physical performance and sports science, Lachlan Penfold, Curry and Barnes are among the Warriors who, since the start of camp, frequent this spa for one-hour sessions spent bobbing belly-up in salt water inside sensory-deprivation pods. The solution, which is saturated with 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt, provides magnesium for soreness in a weightless environment, which in turn decompresses the spine and releases tension in muscles. Heat it to skin-temperature and pour it in a pod devoid of light and sound, and you get an experience that is not unlike drifting in space.
