About Us

Our goal is to help others start, run, & refine their own float centers. A place to share what we have learned, to help educate and raise the quality of float centers. We wish to be a guide and companion to have alongside you during all of your successes and failures; providing encouragement and guidance when you need it most, even at three in the morning when everyone else is asleep and you’re covered in salt.

Meet Dylan
Unsatisfied with the world IT and empowered by his now wife Sandra, the goal of creating a holistic wellness center with a focus around float tanks was born.

On December 14th, 2011 Dylan and his now wife Sandra opened the a float center with 2 float tanks. Today, the Float Shoppe is an integrative wellness center which encompasses a total of six modalities (floating, counseling, yoga, acupuncture, massage, and naturopathic medicine) with a staff of thirty (2 owners, 8 float facilitators, 6 massage therapists, 1 acupuncturist, 1 naturopath, 2 counselors, 9 yoga teachers, and 1 meditation teacher.

Today, most of his thoughts are geared towards refining our float center and making the customer experience as perfect as possible. He is constantly thinking about how his team can continue to improve the Float Shoppe so it can facilitate furthering personal growth.

Meet Brian
Brian ran through the front door of Dylan’s float center one day and they’ve been friends ever since. Passionate about workflows and improvinb business efficiencies, he helped to do some consulting at the Float Shoppe. One day, Dylan said “let’s start a blog” and a few years later he said “let’s start a podcast” and well, here we are! Brian is a passionate float and co-owner of Art of the Float.

Meet Gloria
Just nine months after trying float therapy for the first time, Gloria opened the doors of Float Sixty Chicago. In less than three years she had built up three locations! She co-hosts the show bringing her with her business and marketing savvy to share on the show.

Meet Drew
Before starting his center, Drew worked for the Department of Social Services and eventually Juvenile Probation. This delivered an education on how to act with all types of people representing different socio-economic backgrounds. This is where Drew fell in love with people, interacting with people, and a curiosity about what makes people do the things they do.

Drew started listening to the Art of the Float podcast without knowing he would open a center. Later he became a consulting client as he planned and built out his own center, NH Float. Drew is as passionate about floating as he is about martial arts where he has over 9 years training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, 4 years of MMA experience, and has recently taken on the new challenge of starting all over as the new guy in Muay Thai.
