Massage, Acupuncture, and Float Tanks…  A Chat with Sandra Calm

Massage, Acupuncture, and Float Tanks… A Chat with Sandra Calm

We’ve seen lots of float centers that aren’t just float centers.

Many have massage, some offer counseling, some have yoga classes next door. Lots of people start out either by incorporating float tanks into a larger business, or with float tanks only being one of many modalities at their center. Being specialists in floating, Float On has not mastered anything else.

So, to help gain insight into this growing aspect of the industry, we contacted our old friend, Sandra Calm. She started up The Float Shoppe here in Portland with her husband and podcast sensation, Dylan Calm, back in 2011. When they first opened, they had just two float tanks, and slowly added acupuncture, massage, counseling, along with two more tanks. Talk about expansion!

She was more than happy to take some time for the industry to help us understand just what it’s like to run a center with multiple services by answering some questions.

There is no doubt that the short period following the float is crucial for achieving a complete floatation experience. It is during this stage that the first-timer will be setting into place the thoughts that will become how they relate to their float. They have just...
