#whywefloat – Chas B

In the early months of 2018, we were approached by Karen from Little Windows Photography with an idea of a Float Photography project.  Karen envisioned a plan where she could get to know some of the amazing floaters we host at our space, learn why it is they float and snap a photo of them pre- or post- float.  We are honoured by the openness and honesty shared by our float fam; it is a privilege to provide this service to our community

“Chas found The Floatation Centre while suffering debilitating pain from a blood clot. She began her float practice as a way to heal physically, but has been surprised at how many aspects of her life that floating has touched. Floating has provided relief from pain. It has allowed her to let go of negative, anxious thoughts more easily in her daily life. She described herself as having a ‘type A’ personality and has found her regular float practice has allowed her to be more flexible and less controlling. As so many of us do, Chas sometimes struggles with body image, and finds her time in the tank reminds her that her body is a gift. After a float, Chas disconnects from social media and plans relaxing activities to help extend the post-float-glow.”
