Float Well Ambassadors
Our ambassadors are leaders in Wellington who embody our values at Float Well – Community, Curiosity
& Evolution – and represent what floating is all about. As advocates, their role is to help spread the good word about floating within their own communities.
Christian is a 23 year old triathlete balancing a busy training and racing schedule, as well as working full time as an Urban Planner. He is constantly pushing his body and mind every day.
Christian believes that everything he does is interconnected. Becoming an optimal human-being is a game of constant improvement. As an aspiring Olympian, floating helps to explore new areas of bodily awareness and recovery to become a better human and athlete.
Deano is a Palmerston North-based alchemist abstract artist, inspired by landscapes. His unorthodox methods of applying or manipulating materials and paints on the canvas create scenes exploding with colour, texture and depth.
Deano has used the float tank to create ‘float-inspired’ artwork for the Float Well space. You'll see his works on display in each float room, as well as in our common spaces.
Tobias is the owner of Featherston Street Pain Clinic, a chiropractor, physical therapist, fitness instructor, NLP practitioner, chi gong practitioner and cold water immersion enthusiast.
Tobias has gradually come to the belief that although we won’t all achieve it in this lifetime, every single one of us has the inherent ability within us to live free of pain, sickness and injury.
Professionally he lives for the moments when the exact right person walks into his office at exactly the right time and as a result, finds a lasting and life-changing level of pain relief that they had previously thought impossible.
