Rise Above Floatation is Westchester’s first and only floatation center dedicated to providing deep relaxation and exceptional awareness through the power of sensory deprivation.

What drew you to this profession?

With a deep love for meditation and an interest in consciousness, I was drawn to the spectacular benefits of floatation therapy and saw they were lacking in Westchester County. I found a great situation in Mount Kisco to create a float sanctuary and have now been providing sessions for the past eight years.

How does your work differ from that of others in your profession?

The effects of floatation therapy were discovered in a scientific study in the National Institute of Health, and through continued peer-reviewed research are increasingly being shown to treat specific health problems such as chronic stress and eating disorders.

What should a person expect from working with you?

Someone working with us would expect to become part of our commitment to the perfect float environment, which focuses on the feelings of the client at all stages of the process. Freeing up mental processes in order to strengthen the individual power of focus on the self means that harmony between colleagues, staff and clients are prioritized.

What changes do you have planned for 2023?

With an international push to elevate awareness of the proven medical benefits of the float session, we will be starting an educational campaign to bring floating into the awareness of the citizens of Westchester County.

Anything else our readers should know?

The float session is nothing more than allowing the individual access to their internal healing mechanisms and amplifying their sense of self. The vast majority of floaters have a powerful experience of relaxation and awareness from between one to three sessions.
