Tobias started floating with us right from our early beginnings, often getting in the tank 2+ times a week! We knew shortly after meeting him that he’d make an amazing float ambassador, as he sees floating as a complement to the work he does as a chiropractor and business owner at Featherston Street Pain Clinic. Like most truly effective therapists, work for him is not just a job, it merges with his own philosophy on life. If you or someone you know is living with chronic pain, Tobias is the person to listen to!
Tell us a bit about yourself:
I am 20 year veteran of the health and wellness industry (or a quack depending on your perspective). I have worked as a physical therapist, health and fitness coach and as a chiropractor. I like to think for all the time spent at school my real qualification is that I have fixed my own knee, my own spine, my own fatigue (mostly) and slayed my own cancer.
Outside work I spend my time obsessing about food, dogs, wristwatches, ice immersion and naps.
Why do you love floating?
I love floating because it enables me to tap into the deeper aspects of my being quickly and easily. It leaves me feeling calm, happy and focused in a way that can be hard to access using technique alone.
Why should people try floating?
We should all try floating because the modern world has a tendency to pull us out of the calmer more serene parts of our brain and into the stressy, messy fight or flight centres. Floating does the exact opposite and brings us closer to balance. And more importantly it feels good.
