To “float” means to feel weightless and buoyant. Floating allows one to feel the calming effect and tranquility of being suspended in water. It means to feel free from the constraints of gravity.
When Letitia Latek named her holistic wellness center “Float”, she had all these images in her mind. She designed every corner of her center with intent, reflecting lightness, and buoyancy, and freedom. Freedom from many of the symptoms that her clients have come to Float to alleviate: stress, pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia. Freedom to enjoy the many benefits that come from mental, physical and spiritual well-being ~ calmness, relaxation, peace of mind, relief, improved mental clarity, alertness and an overall feeling of rejuvenation and joy.
As soon as you pass through the doors of Float, you immediately feel the sense of serenity that Letitia has sought to create. Inspired by the natural elements of water and earth, Letitia has chosen décor that makes one feel grounded and restful. The walls are painted the shimmering color of turquoise which peeks through slats of rustic barnwood. Soft music and the aroma of incense fill the center’s many private rooms. Float is a sensory experience that allows one to completely escape the world.
Float is a wellness center that takes a holistic approach to health. Letitia, who is a longtime Reiki Master, recognizes the connection between our minds, bodies and souls. She has assembled an array of services that address all these facets of our well-being, knowing that when one part of this “trifecta” is out of balance, we are vulnerable to illness, physical and emotional pain, sleeplessness, worry, depression. Clients of every age and degree of need will find something here to help them heal and achieve that balance in their lives.
Guests at Float will find Reiki and Meditation sessions as well as massages, including hot stone and warm oil massages, Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) and therapeutic massage. There is Aura Photography and soon, clients will be able to have facials. There is also a full boutique fitness studio complete with experienced personal trainers and its own separate entrance.
Float offers another unique service which has countless healing benefits. It is known as Floatation Therapy. Clients seeking relief from everything from sports injuries to anxiety “float” in ten inches of water contained in an enclosed tank known as a “pod”. The warm, soothing water has a high content of magnesium sulfate which gives it the healing properties that many have discovered from the waters of the Dead Sea. Guests can spend 60 minutes to 90 minutes in this private pod where they will arise feeling physically and emotionally restored, renewed and relaxed.
Float is located at 2258 Post Road. All services are provided by appointment only. Float is open every day at 9:00am (closed on Wednesdays). To learn more, visit their informative website at www.floatri.com. Discounts available for our servicemen and women, police, firefighters and veterans.
