Lifestyle Business: Community Health Resources

We are deeply committed to creating a sense of community and well being with our clients and our neighbors, by providing a healthy, relaxing and beneficial service to all those who enter our doors. Zephyr Float exists to provide a scientifically proven method to reduce the power of stress over the human body, alleviate chronic pain and better oneself through introspective learning in an accessible manner to all those who seek it. Our day to day lives are filled with information overload. Our brains are constantly busy processing new information, which is exhausting.

This delivers immense benefits from temporary chronic pain relief, shortened muscle recovery time to even longer lasting anxiety relief.
