We’ve gotten still, as of late, and have really focused on what Our Purpose is here at The Floatation Centre. It all boils down to this:
The Floatation Centre provides a springboard for happiness and elevated levels of consciousness.
But what does that really mean?
All of the services offered at TFC are intended to help you on your path. Whether it be a therapeutic massage with one of our RMTs, finding a nutritional plan that works for you with our Professional Dietitian, or deepening your meditation practice through floating, we provide a space where this is all possible. Personal growth isn’t always easy, but with the aid of our safe, compassionate and non-judgemental team, we’ll gently nudge you along and assist you with elevating the quality of your life.
The Floatation Centre is an inclusive, 2SLGBTQ+ community space where ALL BODIES are welcome. We aim to provide a welcoming and safe experience for each and every person who enters our cozy, North End home. As soon as you walk in our door, you’ll know exactly what we’re talkin’ about.
LINDSAY | Founder & Happiness Enabler (she/her) – Lindsay spends her days doing her best to gently encourage others to meditate, be kind & live a life in service. A former chemical engineer turned happiness enabler & mental health advocate, Lindsay loves chatting with folks about what they’re doing to elevate their quality of life! She founded The Floatation Centre Health & Wellness in 2015 and has been sharing the benefits of floatation therapy, meditation and mindfulness far & wide since.
Self-proclaimed as a goofy, open book who laughs a little too loudly, Lindsay continues to bumble her way through this whole entrepreneurship gig while finding harmony in her own self-care & health sovereignty.
TRUTH | CONSCIOUSNESS | BLISS
PALMER | Manager (he/him) – I was introduced to sensory deprivation by Lindsay and Tara as a way of deep relaxation and meditation as well as something that could calm my anxieties. Coming from a hospitality and live production background, being able to work in a “fast paced and high stress” environment has done exactly what it sounds like it would… it completely burnt me out. Not only am I excited to experience the physical and mental benefits of floating, but I’m also excited to help facilitate everyone’s experience and assist in bringing balance to their lives.
SHAWN | Float Host (he/him) – Floating came to me at just the right time. I had been battling depression for more than year; I was crippled with anxiety and barely left the house for anything but work. Floating allowed me to focus and gain a better understanding of myself and why I was feeling the way I did. I continue to learn new things about myself with every float.
My life has been greatly affected by incorporating regular float practice into my lifestyle—to such an extent that I bugged Lindsay for months to let me work here. But even before I was on the payroll, I would tell every new person I met about floating. Now I get to see others go through the same transformation. So come float and get to know yourself a little better!
KELSIE | Float Host (she/her) – I was HOOKED from the very first time I stepped foot in the tank. I was feeling stressed, anxious, angry and depressed and suffering from neck and back pain. I was literally at my all time low when I first visited TFC. When I sat in the lounge area and sipped my post float tea, I couldn’t recall the last time I had ever felt so relaxed and calm in every cell of my body. It was a truly magical feeling.
Since my first salty encounter, I think every person I have come in contact with, has heard me boast about the benefits of floating. Safe to say that Floatation therapy changed my life for the better.
Now working here, there is no better feeling then witnessing the transformations in peoples mental and physical states from when they walk in to when they leave. And of course, those big smiles and post float glows make my heart smile every time.
JENN | Float Host (she/her) – I first came to floating at a time when I needed some space to learn how to be a human again. I had gone through some pretty major life changing events and I was ungrounded with upheaval.
So I tried floating in salty water. And it really helped me, and continues to help me learn how to let go of the things that weigh me down.
My float practice tends to be quite spiritually focused, but so does everything I turn my heart towards. I love hearing about your reasons for floating and the reasons that fear is present. I also love hearing about what happened for you during your float, if you want to share with me.
I’m so delighted to be able to share this fantastic practice, and my wish for you is that every time you float you deepen your relationship to your most restful self.
But, I’m also happy just to get you a cup of tea, if that’s all you need.
Just ask! I love helping when I can.
