“Before finding float culture, I was stressed —to say the least.
I was a contractor and my contract was due to end with no future opportunities in sight. . .
I became exhausted losing sleep every night, tossing and turning, as I worried about the next day . . .
It was tough going to work because I’d make mistakes while tired and ended up becoming frustrated with my performance . . .
Not too mention, I’d pushed my cups of coffee from one a day to four just to stay afloat until the afternoon.
The more the stress mounted, the harder it became to switch off. And while I wanted to learn mediation, I could never find the time to sit and quiet my mind every day.
I decided to try herbal teas, natural remedies, and even binaural beats just to beat my stress.
Nothing was working.
That’s until I found float culture.

Every float that followed only kept me stress-free and it quickly became clear that floating would be a little-known but amazing practice that I could tap into.
I’m thankful that I gave floating a go!” – Lyle

Meanwhile, pharmaceutical companies worth more than our country build fortunes on the flaccid genitalia of millions and, […]Read more
“Sooo, why not just take a bath?!” I frequently get asked this when I start gushing about floating (or sensory deprivation, or isolation tanks or floatation therapy, or whatever the kids are calling it these days) The answer, my friends, is multi-faceted…. It includes the fact that my bathwater gets cold and 500 kgs of […]Read more
