Feeling the weight of the world? There’s a new place in Mariemont that can help it float away — literally and figuratively.

“Tao Float Loft in Mariemont is a flotation therapy center [with] other additional services, such as Massage Therapy, Infrared Sauna and Cryotherapy,” Dylan Brown, Owner and Founder of Tao Float Loft, says.

On December 15, 2017, Toa Float Loft opened a location in the Mariemont area. “The demand from our clients and social media push for us to open up shop closer to downtown was overwhelming,” Brown says. “We wanted to continue being Cincinnati’s #1 Float Center, so we expanded to Mariemont.” The location is different from the other business locations. The Mariemont location will include Cryotherapy and Whole Body Cryotherapy. “We will be the only center in the Midwest to feature this Cryotherapy technology, so we are very excited!”

The inspiration behind starting the business came from an urge to educate the Cincinnati community about flotation therapy. “I have a passion for helping others, so creating Tao Float Loft was my way of providing the community of natural method to alleviate countless conditions,” he says. “The name of the business was based off of the philosophy of Taoism. “As an avid reader of Alan Watts, the appeal and power of Taoism resonated with me.

Floating has personally impacted Brown’s life. “It has not only allowed me to naturally alleviate my own anxiety and depression, but impacted me in a deeper sense by allowing me to see clients have unbelievable experiences and results after their floats,” he says. Floating has a variety of benefits, such as pain relief, alleviation of stress, deep relaxation, mental clarity, reduce inflammation, speed up recovery, improve sleep, reduce anxiety, alleviate depression, etc.

There are a variety of services that are offered at Tao Float Loft Mariemont. These services include:

  • Flotation Therapy: “Clients float effortlessly in a large space – like pod filled with 1200 pounds of Epsom Salt, dissolved into 11 inches of water that is heated to skin temperature,” Brown says.
  • Whole Body Cryotherapy (Coming Soon): “For three minutes, our Cryo Chamber will cool the surface of your skin by 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit, using cooled nitrogen,” he says. “This activates the body’s powerful healing cold – shock response.”
  • Local Cryotherapy: Controls swelling, relieves pain from swollen joints, arthritis and helps heal injuries quicker. 
  • Local Cryotherapy Facials: Increases collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, shrinks pore sizes to heal acne and leaves your skin glowing.

Tao Float Loft Mariemont’s success is based on the results of their clients. “So far we have been very successful! In just two years, we have two centers,” he says.

Brown’s favorite part of the job is knowing that his business provides a place for people to lessen daily stress, pain and disengage from the chaotic world. “What I am doing is not only helping myself, but that it is helping others in ways that are unimaginable,” Brown says.
