Float Center Education Through Internships

Float Center InternshipsI (Marshall) started my career in floating as an intern, coming in to the shop each Monday to learn about floating, sanitation, and better understand the intricacies of construction projects. For every four hours I worked, I was expected to schedule myself a float as part of the curriculum. Being able to float once a week as part of my learning process would have been enough to keep me coming back week after week, but I also soon realized that I had stumbled into a very strange and special place.

I stuck around as an intern for more than 6 months before they had a part time opening. Half a year after that, I was working full time at Float On.


A source of future employees

At some point you might want to a hire an employee that you know is enthusiastic, dedicated, hard working, and you know you and your coworkers can get along with. If an intern is willing to come back week after week and work in your shop with next to no reimbursement, it is a pretty good sign that they are enthusiastic about floating.

De-stress After Work with a Float Session

De-stress After Work with a Float Session

There are many kinds of jobs in the world. From high paying to low paying, social to solitary, mentally to physically focused, they all have one thing in common: stress. 40% of workers self-report their job as “very or extremely stressful.” Another 25% of employees say they see their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives. What’s more, work-related stress is associated with health problems more than any other stressor in life. Many feel work life today is much more stressful than it was a generation ago.

There are many reasons why stress is a growing problem in the workforce today. What’s more clear cut are the health effects of stress. When your body goes through a stress response, you might experience elevated heart rate, tightening of muscles, fast breathing, and elevated blood pressure. This is your body’s way of preparing you for a fight or flight response. If you’re at work, neither fight nor flight can really help you; you have to do your job, and even though your body is reacting this way, your life is not usually in any real danger.

Unfortunately, this knowledge doesn’t prevent the negative health effects of stress. Those who report chronic stress from work tend to constantly feel overwhelmed, even when they’re at home. They become easily upset and often feel lonely and depressed. Physically, they tend to experience decreased energy, digestive trouble, insomnia, frequent colds, and pain all over the body.

Stress builds on itself and is not an easy problem to solve. Understanding your stress response is irrational doesn’t change your body’s conviction in its importance. The best way to tackle stress is a physical approach, and floatation therapy can help.


WeFloat Unveils Feature Rich Float Directory

WeFloat Unveils Feature Rich Float Directory

When WeFloat launched, there were a few floatatin center directories avaialble so we prefered simply linking them as a resource. In the recent years, the directories that were available languished while new ones seemed to not be complete, nor offered much in terms of features. It was because of this that we decided to develop a new Float Center Directory.

The WeFloat Directory is a valuable asset to floatation centers with features to help promote their businesses some of the features include:

  • An interactive map with clustering where numerous centers are
