US martial arts fighter Joe Rogan promotes Ocean Float Rooms in Malvern UK

on August 30, 2018

Joe Rogan won the US Open Tae Kwon Do Championship and as lightweight champion went on to beat both the middle and heavyweight title-holders to obtain the Grand Championship. Wow! He’s also an American stand-up comedian, actor, and sports commentator. And he’s a massive advocate of floatation.

Joe has a float tank in his home and Micki, the joint owner of Mind, Body and Soul Centre in West Malvern attributes about a third of their float clientele to Joe – although she’s never met him! “He’s always doing podcasts about floating” says Micki, “and these podcasts reach an Army base nearby and draws the men into the Centre to use the Ocean Float Room.”

Micki and her husband’s centre enjoys a privileged position nestled in the Malvern Hills in middle England from which they offer a wide range of therapies. Some of our best natural spring water has been bottled in Malvern since the 16th century. And the Ley lines are pretty good too following the ridge of the Malvern Hills. No wonder locals seem to thrive and live to a ripe old age.

“Our furthest client comes from the Maldives. In fact he comes to visit his girlfriend in town but he sometimes books in for a float when he’s here. Floating seems to attract the most diverse and interesting collection of people, mostly within a 50 mile radius which takes us as far as Birmingham. We also have a lot of weekenders, who come to the Malvern hills to walk or take the air and complete their getaway with a massage and float. The longest floater is an exhausted doctor who comes regularly all the way from Leicester. She books in for 3 hours at a time before sleeping solidly and fitfully afterwards at her parents home in Malvern.”

The Army

“The men from the Hereford Army are great guys and regular attendees. They’re running at 130% and they just don’t stop. They float to “defrag”, that’s what I call it – just what you would do to a computer when the internal workings getting tangled up and disorderly and need straightening out to continue functioning at speed. I always know it’s them because they use the 24-hour clock to book their sessions. And noticeably they fold their towels away neatly before they leave!”


“We have a lot of referrals from the Fibromyalgia Society too who highly recommend floating. We have a lovely client who comes from Derby, a proper northern lass, who was in constant pain, 24-7. The first time she stepped out of the float room, she had tears in her eyes and flung her arms around me and hugged me. It was the first time in years that she had been without pain. The increasing respite that floatation gives her is such a huge blessing.”
