Ocean Floatrooms have 30 years combined experience running successful commercial float tank centres.
Float Tanks to Float Rooms
We first floated in the US in the mid 1980s and started the first UK commercial float tank centre in 1986. We also co-founded the Floatation Tank Association which promoted Floatation and became the recognized body in the UK which set standards for UK floatation centres.
We opened our first centre with capsule type float tanks but quickly realised that far too many people were alienated from floating because of fear of a small enclosed space. This realization was powerfully confirmed during 3 years of research and promotion at numerous shows and exhibitions monitoring people’s reactions when seeing the tank for the first time. We discovered that, irrespective of the shapes and designs of the tanks, 50% of the population reacted so strongly they were never going to give floatation a chance. Recognising this huge loss to potential business we were determined to find a solution. Highly motivated and set about designing a Float Tank that was much more inviting to the potential customer.
