WE WAKE UP EVERY MORNING TO MAKE YOU MORE AWESOME
It may sound cheesy, but we strongly believe that floating will change the world. We understand how stressful and anxiety-inducing the modern world can be — so we decided to do something about it.
We opened Float Seattle in November of 2012 and became the first float center to have opened in Seattle since the early 1990s. Our Bellevue location opened in late 2015 due to the huge demand we felt in Greenlake. Most recently, we’re beyond excited to take over from Oasis Float Spa in Greenwood to offer 6 more float tanks in Seattle to our guests and members. All in all, we’ve had over thirty thousand different floaters come through our doors since 2012, and we plan on getting to 100,000 in the near future!
Meditation is hard and we tend not to take time for ourselves away from phones and other distractions. Finding an effective pain management and physical recovery regimens can also be tough.
Floating is the antidote.
This is the secret weapon you've been looking for to improve your life. Floating weightlessly for an hour in darkness is the simplest way for you to heal and reconnect with your own awesomeness.
We're beyond grateful to provide access to these tanks every day. Our only goals are to introduce as many people as possible to the world of floating and provide consistently awesome experiences for our regular guests and members—that's it.
We take pride in doing things a little differently at our small business. We treat our guests like family, and we have some of the most flexible & affordable pricing options in the industry.
You can count on us to support you. We’ve put a ton of hard work and love into these studios. All you have to do is show up. This is a space for YOU to relax, heal, grow, and BE.
Float Seattle Owner/GM Andrew is a lifelong learner, always curious and looking to better himself and those around him. Andrew believes floating to be the most accessible way to reconnect with the deepest parts of ourselves and tap into our true potential. His mission is to help as many people discover this as possible by providing a safe and supportive environment for guests to experience themselves in a brand new way. While he had dreamed of opening his own wellness center someday, Andrew jumped at the opportunity to take over the reigns from Float Seattle founder and friend/mentor Sean McCormick in 2018. An avid traveler, yogi, and former barman, Andrew is now rooting down in the PNW as small business owner. He has facilitated thousands of float sessions, and has personally used the tank to deepen his meditation practice, boost creativity, deal with stress & anxiety, and even to speed up recovery from a car accident in 2018. He splits his studio time between all three studios, and finds joy in connecting with guests and members every day. For any early birds living in West Seattle, Andrew also teaches a 6am vinyasa class on Mondays at Spira Power Yoga!
Now co-owner of Float Seattle, Dean has done a little bit of everything. A former chef, student of trans-personal psychology and comparative mythology, professional DJ, local business professional with over twenty years of experience at various non-profit, private, and public sector companies. Having managed lifelong anxiety and depression arising from PTSD Dean originally started floating as a way to deal with overwhelming workplace stress. He quickly came to the conclusion that Flotation Therapy is “basically good for everything” and it has become the “center around which all my wellness practices revolve”. In his downtime he enjoys playing board games, pushing watercolors into paper, cooking elaborate meals, reading anything he can get his hands on, getting out into the wild, and loving on his dog.
Annie is our resident artist. Photographer, silversmith, and freewheeling wildcard with a lot of cool tricks up her sleeve. During her first year with us she floated 100 consecutive days (!) mastering the Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming technique in the process. Her interests include language acquisition, skateboarding, herbalism, Bigfoot theories and beyond. Follow Annie on Instagram, ask her about custom made jewelry, & bring her your expired film rolls if you don’t plan to shoot them!
Jessica is inspired to help people heal physically and is currently in massage school. She struggled with depression for years, but after her first float she felt a shift in her perception that offered her a higher perspective. It gave her the motivation to start changing the way she was thinking and acting. Jessica enjoys practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, yoga, learning about the cosmos, and hiking in the mountains. Depending on the day, you’ll find her at any one of our beautiful studios!
Greg is a slack-line wizard, discus thrower, and aspiring bio-hacker. Having dealt with depression, anxiety, and ADHD for years, Greg has found the meditative states in the float tank to be as close to a heal-all as there is. Getting to explore altered states of consciousness and share floating with people on a daily basis is a dream come true for him. Greg is a jolly dude with an infectious smile. Grab some tea and have a chat after your float.
Max is our undisputed towel folding champion, a 3rd degree black belt in the cotton rectangle arts. When he's not training to defend his world title he enjoys stand up comedy, tattoos, hiking, meditation, and meeting dogs that don't share the same name as him (rare). Max originally started floating for back pain but has fallen in love with the cognitive benefits of time spent in the tank. Come say hi and admire his towels. Maybe float while you’re at it, too.
Kara has been floating on and off with us for 4 years and is beyond excited to be a part of this team and share the experience with others on a regular basis. Having dealt with anxiety and depression in the past, Kara has found a new sense of purpose, balance, and self-love through a combination of yoga and floating. Kara loves helping people, and looks forward to making some cool connections with our guests as they discover their own awesomeness.
Jake is a performer, writer and producer of a local fringe theater production company in Seattle and has clocked thousands of hours on the stage performing mostly comedy. He first found meditation after about a decade of suicidal depression. Shortly after, Jake found float tanks and realized that the only way out is through. He is a member of the LGBTQ community and is passionate about bringing other individuals to a place of complete self acceptance, which he believes is the first step to long-term clarity. Jake has had many jobs, many titles, and many roles and he continues to play the game of life with compassion, curiosity, and love.
Our wayward floater, Josh, discovered the power of float out of the blue when a close friend spontaneously booked him into a tank in Portland, Oregon. Since then it has been full throttle floating! First joining the Float Seattle family back in 2016 (we think lol), Josh recently returned to us after a few years in the UK helping other float center owners get off the ground. When he’s not preaching the float gospel, you can find him tinkering with audio equipment, digging for vintage records, wandering the trails of the PNW, or exchanging travel tales. Find him at our various locales!
Say hi to Drew. He was introduced to floating in late 2015. From the moment he emerged from the tank that fateful night, giggling to himself for no reason beyond the blissful profundity of experiencing total silence & darkness in an overstimulated world, it became clear to him that the potency of floating is an astoundingly important aspect of life he had been missing. Since then, the tank has evolved into a place of spiritual growth, self healing, creative processing, and has given him a desire to share the experience with others so they can improve their lives in similar ways.
