Three years ago when I was looking at my own sanity or lack there of in the face I knew I needed a reprieve. While experiencing the emotional loss of my father due to an unexpected suicide, my overwhelming responsibilities to his estate, my duties to run a new business without him and lack of capital and time to dedicate wellness to myself I felt I had ran out of options. What can a person do with limited time and lower funds. I remembered a book I had read where a woman was put into an isolation tank. While this was intended to overwhelm her she used it as a time to focus and strengthen her mind. I can't fully recall why I stumbled upon this again, maybe it was just the right combination of my keywords in my google search or maybe it was divine intervention.
My then boyfriend, Robert, and I drove to Illinois for our first float session. It was pure bliss. it was magical. Before the float I was my cheerful, yet stressed out, self tapping on the door of mental collapse. When I laid back into the warm, soothing solution in the tank, when the light left, when there was no chirping of my texts and emails and when my mind came to rest in this peaceful and serene environment....I opened the door to my own recovery. I was absolutely grinning from ear to ear because I had gone in not knowing what was to become of me and I came out knowing I had all I needed to thrive.

After this maiden voyage we knew the float tank would become a big part of our lives and the Cedar Rapids community. Thus Honest Floating was born winter of 2014! January 2015 we started servicing the community out of our humble abode and summer of 2016 we started a beautiful partnership with Hands in Harmony! This partnership has married some of the best things in life; floating, massage, couples sessions and much more! I am happy to say I have also become a massage therapist as of August 2017! What a powerful year and a deepening of my passions. The beginning of our 2018 adventure brings us an opportunity to say THANK YOU!!
We'd like to offer everyone 33% off in thanks for our 3 years of float life for the next 30 days for all float therapy services. YOU are why we serve!
