“If you’re thinking about opening a float tank center you must absolutely invest the time and money to attend a Float Apprenticeship. The Float On crew has been there, done it, and provide you the much-needed glimpse into your future. Without the apprenticeship, I think you’re taking a massive risk wading into the void of float tank entrepreneurship.”

What’s it like running a float center?

If you’re looking into opening a float center, or adding floatation therapy to your already existing wellness center or spa, you’re probably asking yourself where to start, what it will be like, whether you’d succeed, and, perhaps most importantly, whether you’d enjoy the business. When we first started out, we were just a group of enthusiastic floaters with the idea of spreading the gospel of floating to everyone who would listen.

We scoured the world for any and all information about float tanks, floatation therapy, and running a float center. Yet even after absorbing everything we could find, and having countless conversations with owners of float centers around the world, we still found ourselves with only a vague idea of what to expect when we opened our doors and our float tanks to the world.

We’ll show you.

Float Tank Solutions is here to show you, tangibly and with real-world experience, how float centers can be lucrative and successful business models, and furthermore be one of the most rewarding careers imaginable. You’ll have plenty of time to ask any questions you have, share your plans with us for critique, and even hang out at our 24-hour float center to shadow observe operations and shadow our staff. We’ll teach you what you’ll need for starting up, managing, and thriving with your float center.

We offer training sessions which help to get your float center up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible, and make sure that you have a solid understanding of everything necessary to run a successful center. Our training sessions offer invaluable hands on experience at our own float center, Float On, one of the highest volume float centers, located in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

“Without the apprenticeship course I’m positive I would’ve completely dissolved my centre with salt and drown my float dreams in a sea of mistakes. Luckily these guys have made all the mistakes for you! From construction to marketing you’ll learn everything you need to be successful, plus you get to hang out with a lot of cool people. I highly recommend it.”

“When I started my journey towards owning a float center, I thought it was simple. Get a tank, put it in a room with a shower. Fill it up. Make money. Done. Float Tank Solutions took that thought, set it on the counter, and smashed it with a sheet of quiet rock. As I found out quickly, creating nothing takes a whole lot of something. If I had not completed the apprenticeship, in person with the ability to ask questions and make connections, I would not be creating the successful center I am now able to create. Float Tank Solutions has been and continues to be an invaluable partner on my journey and has made deciphering this new industry as easy as floating.”
