Our Therapists

Our talented team of licensed massage therapists are each well rounded in several therapeutic modalities, bringing you a customized massage tailored to compliment your float experience. Our LMTs are passionate members of our float family, which makes them unique in that they are well versed in seamlessly integrating their skill sets with the float experience in mind. You may choose to receive a massage on it's own, before your float session, or after your float session. The choice to do a massage before or after a float is up to you- it is greatly beneficial either way. If this is your first time floating, we suggest trying your massage first, that way you are extra relaxed when it comes time to float.

 In order to respect our on-call therapist's schedules, please keep in mind that there will be a $25 cancellation fee for each massage reservation cancelled or rescheduled for another day within 24 hours, and a $50 fee for each no show.
