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

Artist Program 2017

We had so much fun last year, we decided to do it again! If you’re a visual artist, we invite you to participate in our second Float Creative 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.

For more information and to sign up, email us: artists@floatboston.com

Questions! You probably have questions.

Is there a deadline for signing up?  We do have a cap on the number of participants, and we’ll stop the program once we reach our cap OR October 15th 2017, whichever comes first. Sign up now!

Are there requirements for the artwork itself? Does it have to be about floating? The only requirement is that it be a minimum size of 8″x8″ (eight inches square). The subject can be whatever you like. (Please keep in mind that if your subject matter is X-rated that we will not be able to use it on social media or publish it in our book.)

What will happen when I sign up? We’ll get in contact with you to explain the program and make an appointment for a portfolio review. If it’s a good fit for everyone, we’ll sign the contract and schedule your floats.

What happens if I sign up, but it turns out I can’t float because of my health? Please do let us know – we’ll tear up the contract. We want this project to be a win-win situation for everyone.

How will the artworks be used? When you sign our contract, you’ll grant us royalty-free rights to photograph the work and use the images in promotional and commercial projects. If everything works out, we plan to publish the works in a book. We will use the images to promote the artists and floating. You will retain ownership of your work. View a copy of our contract.

Can I participate if I’ve never floated before? Of course! We’ll be delighted to welcome you.

Can I participate if I did last year? Preference will be given to new participants, but we can put you on the wait list.

Cannabis legalized in Massachusetts

This was posted to facebook today, and it’s worth its own blog post. Enjoy!

Curious about Massachusetts’ cannabis legalization? Below is a Q&A published on WBUR, via Somerville’s Mayor Joe Curtatone.

Issues specific to Float:

1) We are a workplace, and smoking is prohibited. Open flames void our insurance. Please be considerate, and don’t wreck our business!

2) Floating is safe, but water and impairment aren’t a good combo. If our staff doubts that you are coherent enough to keep yourself safe, they will check on you, and deny you service if necessary. This is the same as our alcohol standard.

3) Keep in mind that you need to be together enough to recognize our ending signal, and get yourself out and showered in a reasonable amount of time. Please be responsible for yourself.

See you soon!

Mayor Joe says: Just so people have correct information, here’s a Q&A about how marijuana legalization is taking effect today in Massachusetts. I’ll add that you can’t go walking down the streets smoking a jay any more than you can stroll around with an open container of beer. I suggest people understand what is legal and how that works so that you don’t run into any unnecessary legal trouble.

Advance screening of Passengers

Here’s something fun for you: we have passes for an advance screening of Passengers, at AMC Boston Common on Monday, December 19th at 6:30PM.

“Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt star in an exciting action-thriller about two passengers who are on a 120-year journey to another planet when their hibernation pods wake them 90 years too early. Jim and Aurora are forced to unravel the mystery behind the malfunction as the ship teeters on the brink of collapse, with the lives of thousands of passengers in jeopardy.”

Important things to know:

  • Each pass is for two seats.
  • You’ll have to come to Float to pick up your pass.
  • Get there early. These events often overbook, and the pass does not guarantee a seat. As long as there is room, though, you’ll get in.

Email us at info@floatboston.com to get yours – first come first served.
