ABOUT THE OWNER & CO-FOUNDER
Dare I say my first float was magical. I had never felt so relaxed, so at peace, so jelly-like in all my life. I was 45 years old, with four children at home, two of which were struggling with their mental health, they were at four different schools, our house had just been struck by lightning, my husband was frequently out of town on business, and I didn’t have family close by who could help. I thought I was handling “life” wonderfully until I stepped foot in that float cabin. I had NO idea how incredibly exhausted I was both physically and mentally. My float forced me to stop, take inventory of my body and mind, recognize that if I don’t pivot, and fast, I am going to find myself in trouble and no longer able to be the caregiver my family needs me to be. I came home, slept for at least 2 hours because my body was finally relaxed. When I reemerged, I immediately began researching the benefits of floating. I knew I couldn’t be the only one who needed this respite from everyday life. I knew it could transform our relationship with our bodies and minds. This one float catapulted my drive to helping improve our quality of life, one float, one cryo, one sauna, one compression, one service at a time…Enter Imagine Float ❤️

OUR MEDICAL DIRECTOR
KAREN MYRICK, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, ONP-BC, FAAN
We are thrilled to welcome Karen to the Imagine Float team as our very own Medical Director!
Karen is a mother, a wife, a professor, an athlete, and an APRN with a Doctorate in Nursing (DNP). Karen has been a client and daily member of Imagine Float since July of 2020. She came in seeking recovery options while training for her black belt test in Kung Fu, Karate, and Aikido as well as her 20th+ half marathon. Not only did she succeed at both, but she is now a second-degree black belt and an instructor while continuing to chase that next race. She lights up when she talks about the wonders of our anatomy and how using proper forms of recovery and rehabilitation can contribute to maximizing our body’s performance. For the past 3 years she has been one of our unofficial consults when medical related questions arise. It is our honor to have her now at Imagine Float in an official capacity. Karen’s experience in anatomy, physiology, orthopedics, and sports medicine will only elevate the experience and services we are able to provide our clients in their recovery process and overall wellness goals.
