Relax, Heal and Grow at Float Seattle

Let’s face it, sometimes life is hard. We get over-stressed, over-stimulated and we become at odds with each other and ourselves. It’s no fault of our own, it’s the reality of being alive. Located inside Park Metro Apartment, Float Seattle was created for the sole purpose of helping you get through it all with float therapy. It’s a non-pharmaceutical option to treat anxiety, stress, and chronic pain; a secret weapon to improve your life overall. Float allows people to simply get away from their fast-paced modern lifestyle. General Manager and part-owner Andrew Loppnow believes floating is incredibly beneficial for your mind, body and soul.

“The results give you a feeling of dreamy and blissful relaxation,” Loppnow said. “The concept of floating can seem strange at first, but the benefits are undeniable.”

The float tank is a shallow enclosed pool filled with 10 inches of water and 1000 pounds of medical-grade Epsom salt. The steps to floating are simple: step inside the tank, lay your body down and float. The environment is designed to remove all external distractions and physical discomfort. The latest clinic research on float therapy found that floating regularly has a positive impact on the nervous system and reliably reduces the negative effects of stress, anxiety, chronic pain and more. Loppnow states that many of their members found that floats improve their sleep, enhances their mood and mindset.

“The people we see in our Bellevue location are typically tech and business workers, athletes, and families,” Loppnow said. “Downtown has a lot going on and people generally seem like they’re always on the go. We’re happy to be a relaxing pit-stop for the busiest among us.”

Right now, Float Seattle is expanding to a fourth location in South Lake Union and has many different future plans involving more research and spreading awareness about the float industry and becoming a community wellness hub for the local areas with ideas like wellness events, get-togethers and strong partnerships with individuals and businesses.

“If you’ve ever been curious about float therapy, now is the time to try it,” Loppnow said. “I hope people really appreciate the time to connect more deeply with themselves, away from screens, work and other distractions. It’s a rare thing for most people.”
