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 year science student referred to themselves as “pre-med” I got scared and started to explore other options. I entered into Engineering without really knowing what it entailed, but hoped that I’d get to drive a train or two along the way…. After taking a year off to travel, I finished up my final three years of Chemical-Environmental Engineering at UBC in Vancouver, I entered the real world – during a recession. Talk about timing!
If there is one thing I could change during those years – where you’re questioning the reasoning behind the examination process or staying up to the wee mornings hours LaPlace transforming your life away – it would be having a better way to relieve stress other than BEER.
This, my dear student friends, is for you.
Floating promotes and/or enhances and/or aids with:
- creativity (NSCAD students, I’m looking at you and your beautiful, artistic souls);
- REST (an hour in a float tank is the equivalent of 4 – 6 hours of deep, rested sleep);
- a vacation from your phones/computers/tablets; and,
- decreasing stress, anxiety and depression – naturally!
Sidenote: I’m also told that it helps with hangovers *ahem* but that’s neither here nor there.
Save your beer money for one week and invest it in yourself. Take it from an ol’ timer: you absolutely deserve it. Book a session, show up with a valid student ID and float for $55 (+taxes). Easy peasy.
