Northwest Float Center in Tacoma, Washington originated from a conversation about floating between two long time friends, Kriss Brooks and Alex Ziegler. What began as an idea to open a float center quickly turned into reality as two words kept resurfacing: “Why not?”
We wanted to open a float center that would help people in the most fundamental way and experience the healing from floating that we felt. As more and more people are living in a world where there is constant internal and external stimulation, we wanted to give people a chance to get in a float tank, relax and hit the reset button.
“I was put out of work due to a serious back injury I sustained overseas. My brother suggested flotation therapy to me and it has transformed my life. I wanted to share this experience with as many people as possible and it was clear to me that I needed to open a float center.”
“Meditation and expanded conscience have always intrigued me. I was never able to fully let go and truly experience stillness until I spent time in a float tank and in today’s society that is extremely valuable. I want others to feel the benefits that I used to search for.”
