Student Floats for $55

When it came to University, you could say I did a victory lap or two.  I started at Saint Mary’s University with the hopes of entering into medicine and one day, becoming a coroner (I know, don’t ask).  I picked up a Diploma of Forensic Sciences along the way but, after realizing that every second…

Credit Cards Now Required for ONLINE Bookings

This post bums me out, man.  Really, really bums me out. On Sunday, 5 of 8 appointments were no shows.  Straight up, just didn’t show.  I thought to myself “Who could miss an amazing float session?”.  Seventy-five minutes of pure, relaxing, meditative bliss? SIGN ME UP (and I’ll be there).  This has been an ongoing…

Why We Do What We Do: Nicole Marchand, Registered Dietician

It occurred to me that my chosen profession can be misunderstood at times. When asked what I do, I often get responses such as, ‘would I have to eat more salads if I had a consultation with you?’ or ‘I don’t want to change how I eat’. Registered dietitians are highly educated professionals with bachelors of science and…

Dissolving Claustrophobia in the Float Tank

Phewf! What a whirlwind of a couple days! A recent article in The Chronicle Herald has resulted in a major influx of new floaters – and with these new floaters, comes many a’ question.  I want to address right away the number one concern of first-time floaters: What if I am claustrophobic? Have no fear…

Float at the end of the tunnel

Three weeks.  The Floatation Centre has been open for three whole weeks.  I’m not entirely sure where the time has gone, but here we are – in this present moment. As a new business owner, I’ve learned more about myself in these past few months than I have in many of the previous years collectively…

Wellness Team Announcement: Nicole Marchand, PDt

Eat Well Halifax. That is what Nicole Marchand, our Professional Dietitian, wants you to do.  So we’re just going to go ahead and make that happen. A little aside: Nova Scotia is a small province.  Halifax is a small city.  I love it here (said on repeat).  When I first connected with Nicole to chat,…

Connie McInnes, Float Ambassador

It’s been three days since my 7:15am Wake + Shake Pilates class at RIO HFX and I am STILL feeling it.  Every part of me burns and aches, but in a rewarding way.  Like most Haligonians this winter, the weather really kicked my butt.  Sedentary days in front of a computer without my usual strolls…
