We’re in the Somerville Journal!

Yesterday’s edition of the Somerville Journal includes a great profile of us, on the front page no less.

Floating actually has a lot in common with massage, Garvin said.

“They’re similar in that they both cause the body to go into a relaxation response which is really a very healing state,” Garvin said. “Massage is one way of getting your body there; a float tank is a different way altogether.” …

“We want to get people into the tank,” Garvin said. “We feel strongly that floating is for everyone.”

We were contacted out of the blue by a reporter before Thanksgiving, got interviewed by phone, and then thanks to a miscommunication a photographer showed up Black Friday morning before we’d quite gotten out of bed.  If I’d been better prepared, maybe I could at least have been properly shaven for my turn on the front page!

We’ve been working on this project for five or six months now with the faith that this area would be as interested and supportive of it as any West Coast burb.  It’s really great to see that the people at the Somerville Journal agree.
