Glasses that Change Your Mood

Color Therapy GlassesOne of the most rewarding things about running Float On, our float center, is being able to give our customers the change in mental state and perception that float tanks and floatation therapy offer. As retailers, we’ve strived to find other products and services that work in conjunction with this, either by furthering the post-float glow, or finding new and interesting ways to offer our customers changes in their perception around-the-clock and outside of the tank.

One of the most successful examples of this has been our fruitful relationship with color therapy glasses from colorglasses.com. As a company, they’ve been extremely helpful and great to work with, even going so far as to offer free shipping to our center on wholesale orders, an offer they will happily extend to any float center.

Color therapy glasses, for those who might not be familiar with them, are pairs of glasses which come tinted in a rainbow of different colors. Each of the different colors offers unique changes in the wearer’s mental state, creating a variety of different moods and encouraging different modes of thought. Because of our customer’s natural inclination towards this sort of thing (I mean, they are in a float center, after all), they are one of the best-selling items we carry at Float On.

Also, it definitely doesn’t hurt that the glasses themselves are, to put it simply, really cool.

After all their support for floatation therapy, we’ve invited the Color Glasses team to our 2013 Float Conference, so anyone in attendance will be able to meet the people involved in their creation and have an opportunity to try the glasses out for themselves.

We hope you get a chance to stop by their booth and see the world in a new light.

Looking Forward to a Whole Lot More Nothing

Last year’s conference was thrilling. It was the first time we had put on an event of this size and, to say the least, we were a bit nervous. Despite giving ourselves a mere three months to prepare, however, the Portland Float Conference was a resounding success.

Floatation enthusiasts, cutting-edge researchers, and leading members of the industry (many involved in the community for decades) participated in the conference and joined us for our expert panel presentations. The conference was popular even among those newer to floating, and nearly a third of our audience was comprised of people who had been floating for less than a year, but were already expressing their wholehearted support for floatation therapy. The Portland Float Conference became the largest conference on floatation therapy the world has ever experienced, and we appreciate and respect the growing floatation community for making the conference a success.

This year, we have time to plan, and we’ve already begun gathering speakers and sponsors for the upcoming 2013 Portland Float Conference this August. We hope you’ll join us for what will be the world’s largest floatation event.

Strengthening the Floatation Community

The resurgence of interest in floating is undeniable. Float centers are opening all around the world, scientific research is proving new and exciting medical benefits of floatation therapy, and floatation enthusiasts are spreading the gospel of floating to any and all who will listen.

As with any industry which is small but growing steadily, community support and involvement is going to be integral to our success. Shared information between float center owners, researchers on floatation, and practicers of floatation therapy themselves, will help legitimize and popularize the industry. By offering this forum, we hope to ensure the acceptance and success of floatation therapy in modern society.

The Portland Float Conference aims to cultivate the floatation community by providing an open and welcoming forum for anyone interested in the science, methodology, or practice of floating. We have been told countless times from attendees of the conference that the experience lead to new friends and associates in the industry, and provided invaluable advice and information from leaders in the field.

The Portland Float Conference is for the community, and we welcome your involvement. If you have any interest, questions, or comments about the event, or want to participate as a sponsor, or on our speaker’s panel, contact us today for more information.
