[Podcast] Float Conference 2017: Corey Costanzo - Shamanic Floating Concepts

Corey runs Still Point Wellness, a float and wellness center out in Asheville, North Carolina. He’ll be partnering up with Treeka Drake of One Love Float to put on a Friday Activity entitled “Shamanic Floating Concepts with Didgeridoo Journey.” Corey will be playing using his didgeridoo to take people on this sound based journey. Read more about it on our Friday Activities page.

Still Point Wellness is located in the mountains of North Carolina, sheltered from much of the South in this little New Age Paradise where vegan restaurants and craft beer abound. We felt right at home pulling in from Portland. Corey, the owner of Still Point Wellness, started out in psychology, and he discovered floating at the Esalen Institute (the same place he discovered his wife).

Asheville Spa Leaves us Floating on Water

Asheville Spa Leaves us Floating on Water

Most people visit the Asheville, North Carolina area to see the huge, sprawling, Biltmore Estate. We decided to do Asheville a bit differently than most by skipping this massive building of excess and instead visited a tiny little minimalist-like space; a six foot by eight foot salt water flotation chamber at what has to be the best Asheville spa – Still Point Wellness.

Let’s take a journey, shall we?

Outdoor excursions (specifically the “Ultimate Stairmaster”) call for some serious TLC. Spas are my ultimate “happy place” so when I stumbled upon Still Point Wellness I knew it was a mandatory stop during our trip. Still Point Wellness is more than your average spa – it is a centre for physical, mental and spiritual rejuvenation. Still Point Wellness offers a multitude of services including salt water flotation, world class Esalen® Massage, somatic psychology and private yoga therapy and meditation.

Float away

Float away

It’s a bright and blustery morning in North Asheville, where I am about to embark on a rather unique journey. With my heart pounding and my nerves afire, I am stepping into a dark, lonely box to float in silence in a warm, epsom-saltwater solution for 90 minutes.
