Small Business Saturday is November 30th

And we have a gift for You!

tl;dr: Buy a gift card in person at Float on Saturday, November 30th, and get a complimentary gift bag with goodies from us and other local businesses! First come first serve, while supplies last: we’ll keep giving them away until we run out.

What’s Small Business Saturday? It’s the day after Black Friday and a response to it. Small Business Saturday is a celebration of everything personal, community-focused, and local. When you buy gifts from and patronize local businesses, you’re creating jobs, keeping dollars in your community, investing in entrepreneurship, and supporting your neighborhood as a unique destination! Sometimes you can only get certain things from big companies, and that’s okay. We just like to thank you for choosing to support us and our fellows when you can. 🙂

What’s in the gift bag? A sample of new Float product McShea Dream Cream, a gift from Amal Niccoli Salon and KenkoDo Clinic in Ball Square, vouchers for body-positive More To Love Yoga with Somerville Scout cover girl Rachel Estapa, class passes for the brand new Barre3 Somerville location (due to open December 2nd), vouchers to our neighbor Daddy Jones, and a little handmade gift from me (Sara). There are also special gift packages from True Grounds and Taco Party in Ball Square. We’ll give those away to two lucky customers! We’ll also pick someone to get an extra float. Whew!

Thanks in advance for sharing floating with your friends and loved ones! Floating makes the world better.

Artist Program is back for 2019!

We love doing Artist Programs, and this year we’re back to the visual arts. If you’re a painter, illustrator, or sculptor, we invite you to participate in our fourth annual Artist Program project. Float three times for free, with the understanding that after the second float you’ll start an art project and finish it within one month. We think you’ll be amazed at everything your mind creates when you eliminate the distractions of the outside world.

Let’s Float summer challenge is back!

It’s back… our summer float challenge is back and better than ever.

Why do a float intensive? Just like any exercise or self-care, the benefits from floating are cumulative and at their peak when part of a regular practice. Also, there is evidence that a period of frequent floats over a few weeks has long-lasting and possibly permanent effects. If you love the way you feel after a float, and want to be able to access that feeling better in your daily life, now is the time! Continue reading Let’s Float summer challenge is back!

Open letter to health care professionals

As a massage therapist, I often found myself answering questions from my clients about wellness and alternative health treatments. If you’re anywhere near the holistic wellness space, I’m sure you’ve been in the same position: manning the gateway to a whole realm of opportunities for people to build the best version of themselves. It’s an exciting place to be!

It’s also expensive to keep ourselves educated on every option. Continue reading Open letter to health care professionals
