January Favorite Floater - George Gow

Name: George GOW

Location: Nanaimo, BC

Length of time you've been floating at home: Since May 2015

What made you get into floating and why do you love it?

I was a Police Officer for many years and with both work related accidents and sporting accidents, my body is a wreck.  Due to my conditions, my 62 year old mind is stuck in an 80 year olds body.

Prior to floating, I would get massages, acupuncture, and treatments of many other disciplines in regards to recovery/accident and I always found it cutting into my time.  But with the float tent, it is conveniently done at home and there is no driving back and forth.

I have not had any other treatments this year and that is entirely because of floating.

Any cool experiences floating that you want to share?

Within seconds of entry, I am totally pain free. And when I leave the tank I can feel good for hours.

Any tips,tricks, or advice you would share with other fellow floaters or Zen Tent owners.

Try to use the tent as often as possible!

It has taken me a very long time to master relaxing for more than an hour. I was never able to meditate, and always found I was too busy...but it's the best feeling ever to hear ones' heart beat. 

It's funny that one can watch tv for hours, yet relaxing and meditating seems like a chore.
