Resources for Starting a Float Center
Starting and running a float tank center, or adding floatation therapy to an existing spa, can be a surprisingly difficult ordeal without the right information to help guide you along the way.
The following products were created based on our experience opening and maintaining our own center, Float On, and through our conversations with other float centers around the world. We’ve helped dozens and dozens of float centers find funding, negotiate with landlords, design their centers, and fill their tanks – we hope that our resources are as useful to you as they have been for others.
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, now the largest float center in the nation, located in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
Join us for our next apprenticeship program.
In over 10 hours of online courses, Graham, Ashkahn, and Jake from Float On guide you through the process of starting your float tank center and building up your customers & members.

Salt water leaks, electric current in ungrounded water, slippery floors, sound pollution, light pollution, imprecise or dangerous chemistry, misinformed sanitation, murky water, impurities in your epsom salt, improper water filtration…there is a lot that goes wrong with float tanks.
