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…

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…

Float at the End of the Tunnel

Two days ago, someone asked me how I was doing with starting my own business and I said “At least I get to float at the end of the tunnel, so that’s nice”.  There are stretches of time where I need to remind myself WHY I am doing this because it is easy to lose focus….

Ricky Goodall Float Ambassador

At my first networking event in Halifax, I stood off to the side, getting my free beer into me as fast as possible.  I was very nervous, it was stuffy, I was wearing uncomfortable shoes.  I felt out of place but hey, free Propeller beer – right?! We went around the room, introducing ourselves and…
