Length of time you've been floating at home: Since January of 2015


What made you get into floating and why do you love it? 
I'm an Airbnb host. One of my guests in Spring 2014 went to Halcyon Floats in Philly. He brought me a brochure that inspired me to book 3 introductory appointments. I was hooked.

As a Vipassana meditator, I have meditated 1000+ hours in my life. It is hard! I have body pain. The float tent eliminates my pain from sitting or kneeling and lets me get into the Theta brain state more easily, more often.

Any cool experiences floating that you want to share?
When I haven't had enough sleep or just feel fatigued, I find floating rejuvenates my mind and body.

Any tips,tricks, or advice you would share with other fellow Zen Tent owners?
– If you float often, find a short(er) hairstyle that you like. My hair used to be down to my lower back, but it took too long to dry.

– Get a bath mat, it can be slippery when showering afterwards.

– If your nose gets stuffy while floating, like mine, use a small amount of tiger balm under your nose. Float in Marlton, NJ gave me that trick.

I'm letting my friends use the float tent by booking here:
