FLOAT Boston Challenge Returns

Starting July 1, 2022, FLOAT Boston will bring back its popular summer float challenge. All summer long, anyone that floats three times in one month will receive a fourth float for free. “The research we have on the benefits of floating have their participants float at least a couple times a week,” says Sara Garvin, FLOAT's cofounder. “Getting in a weekly float for even one month can really deliver the stress busting benefits floating is known for.”

FLOAT will also expand its Community Hours to two weekday mornings through September. During Monday and Thursday Community Hours, floats before noon are discounted 50 percent.

Floating aids the brain and body in relaxing and disconnecting from environmental stimulation which has been linked to increased cases of pain, anxiety, depression and other ailments exacerbated by stress. Individuals effortlessly float on a bed of water that has been saturated with more than 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt. These specially designed float pools are constructed in rooms built to be soundproof and lightproof, and tightly calibrated so that both the water and air match the temperature of the skin.

Cost: $43-$85; packages available. Location: 515 Medford St, Somerville, MA. For more information, call 844-443-5628 or visit
