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.
Three 8-Hour Days of Training
• Experience the logistics of owning and operating a float center
• Receive real-world knowledge and tips from experienced industry professionals
• Observe and become educated about float tank maintenance and support
• Plan marketing campaigns and brand design for your center
• Learn about float tank history and medical benefits

Apprenticeships also include as many free floats as you’d like while you’re in town, giving you the chance to try out all of our different tanks.
After this float apprenticeship, you’ll have the management skills needed for running this unique type of business, and a thorough understanding of float tanks and floatation therapy to help you own and operate a successful float tank center.
If you’d like to receive advice more specific to your center, check out our Float Center Consulting Services page for more information.
All sessions are limited to 6 apprentices and only run once a month.
So before you begin packing your bags, let’s talk about when our next available session is happening.
You can also enroll in our online apprenticeship (free with the in person apprenticeship) if you don’t want to wait to make the trip out to our physical center..
