Life’s stresses can weigh people down, as can chronic pain, fatigue and other ailments.
Carlos Casias is a Los Alamos entrepreneur who will be opening Float Los Alamos in 2015 and he hopes to help local remedy those problems.
Casias’ float studio will have at least two float tanks.
A float tank is a light- and sound-free environment where a person can float atop a solution of about 10 inches of natural Epsom salt.
While reducing external stimuli, the benefits of a zero-gravity environment can reducing muscle tension, joint pain and discomfort.
Casias’s business, which is still in the planning stages, will make it possible for people to experience floating in a safe and clean environment.
Casias had several ideas for businesses that he would like to bring to Los Alamos, but decided to go with the float tank idea because he personally loves the physical and psychological benefits of the overall experience.
“I started floating in Albuquerque. Once you float, you just want to float all the time,” Casias said.
He has been working with Ted Lopez at the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos Small Business and Development Center to develop his business plan and market analysis projections needed to raise startup funds and secure a loan.
