As part of our ongoing "Getting to Know Your Local Businesses"
series, this week we sat down with Melody Fraser, co-owner of Blissful Waters Float Center.
Tell us a bit about your business: What does your business offer, and how long have you been around?
We are a float therapy center, specializing in sensory deprivation. Blissful Waters Float Center has been open now for three years. In those three years we have grown into a three float room center, with added modalities that compliment floating and our wellness brand.
How did you decide to get involved in this line of work? How did the business get started?
I found floating when my kids were young. They talk a lot. I loved that I could escape somewhere and think freely. It was quiet, calm and I was uninterrupted. I always say, “Love at first float”. My husband and I would joke as I was critiquing the float centers that I visited. “Hey you should open your own center,” he would say. Then we did. Float Therapy had such an impact on my life that I wanted to bring the experience of floating to everyone I know. Together we wanted a place for healing, wellness, and community.
Tell us a couple things you are proud of about your business. What are you known for? What separates you from the competition?
I love when I hear that we are changing lives. How amazing is that? We get to witness combat vets take control of their life, and win against mental health challenges. I love seeing entrepreneurs work on their self-development and grow their businesses. I have the pleasure of witnessing couples, parents connect with each other and enjoy a date night. Chronic pain sufferers feeling pain relief for multiple days. It feels good to be a positive influence in so many lives and I cherish the friends and relationships we are forming along the way.
Who is your ideal customer/client? Who do you serve best?
Blissful Waters Float Center is a great place for athletes, chronic pain sufferers, someone looking for stress relief, busy teens, mental health sufferers with common disorders like autism, PTSD depression, ADHD and more. A float
tank is a light and sound reduced environment that contains a saturated solution of Epsom salt that is kept at skin temperature. This environment allows a person to float effortlessly without external stimuli for many purposes, including meditation, exploration, relaxation, and physical therapy. The environment that the float tank offers helps with pain, inflammation, changing brain waves, enjoying complete relaxation. Our float tanks hold about a foot of water, which is heavily saturated with roughly 1600 lbs. of medical grade Epsom salt. This creates a solution with a density comparable to the dead sea, allowing a person to float effortlessly, removing all pressure from your joints and muscles. You can float with ambient music and gentle light or go sensory deprivation also known as R.E.S.T. (restricted, environmental, stimuli, therapy). Blissful Waters ideal client would be someone who visits often. We love repeat clients. The entire Bliss team enjoys hearing their stories on how the floats have progressed and the positive changes people are experiencing.
Are there any special promotions, annual sales, or special events that you'd like to mention?
We have a couple of promotions going on now. I love Mother’s Day. I personally found floating as a mom who needed a quiet space. Our current special is a two-float package. After your float we will serve our traditional prosecco and peaches (complimentary). This has become a moms day favorite in The Woodlands. We are also offering 20-minute O2 bar sessions after your float. The two-float package is shareable, so it makes for a great mom date. We also have a single float offer if you want to send mom in for some personal time for her to enjoy solo. We will spoil her. Don’t you worry. Both packages include a beverage of choice, O2 bar and the float.
Is there any other information you'd like your potential customers/clients to know about your business?
If you want more information, we are open seven days a week. You can call us (281-978-4037) or stop by for a tour (call before to check schedule) or visit our website
Float therapy is new to most, so we would love to be the ones to introduce you to this relaxing and restoratative practice. Blissful Waters Float Center is located on Timberloch Place on the East Shore side off Grogan’s Mill. We also offer Contrast Therapy which is the utilization of our Infrared Sauna and cold ice bath. You can use them separately or combine the modalities to unlock the incredible health benefits that they offer. We also have a "Brain Tap" room for guided meditations and brain training. That, combined with a grounding vibrational chair, makes for a wonderful and transformative experience.
How do you see your business growing and improving over the next couple of years?
We have been busy adding modalities. I am ready now to share them with you all and looking forward to connecting with our clients, changing lives, and building memories.
