It’s our first birthday!

We are coming up to our first birthday, which is hard to believe. What an amazing year it has been – this weekend we will cross the 1600 floats mark! We are so grateful to all those who have floated with us, and we have loved being able to host your floats!

To celebrate our birthday we would like to invite you to share your experience of floating at Float in the Forest by writing about it.

This is something we have been thinking about for some time. We are regularly overwhelmed by the amazing feedback we get, both in reviews online, and handwritten in the float journal in our lounge. Some bits are very moving, some profound, and all are very much appreciated.

It can be so helpful for those who have not yet had the joy of discovering floating for themselves to hear about the experiences of other people. Getting other people’s take on floating can help to inform, reassure, and intrigue someone who has not floated before. Every float is different, and everyone’s experience of floating is different. People get a whole range of different benefits from floating.

We opened FITF because we wanted to share the wonders and benefits of floating with as many people as possible. Many people enjoy floating so much that they just can’t help sharing their wonderful experiences with others. Maybe you are one of those people who shares our passion for floating and wants to spread the word. Maybe you had a specific transformative floatation experience and would like to express it. Perhaps you have been floating regularly for a while now and your life has improved thanks to your float practice. Your words could help guide more people to explore how floating can help them.
