Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce
Member Morning with Afloat

Join us for an all-new event: Member Mornings! Each open house-style Member Morning event will be held at a different Member location and will aim to offer fun, hands-on and educational opportunities to learn about our community, along with coffee and snacks to get your day started.

On November 8, drop in on our Member Morning with AFLOAT to learn about Thunder Bay’s own float centre!

Floatation therapy, also known as floating, sensory deprivation, or R.E.S.T (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) involves lying in a floatation tank with 10 inches of water, containing 1000lbs of epsom salts. The density of the salt solution allows anyone to float on the surface, virtually free of gravity. It is one of the most effective means of stress relief and relaxation available. Floatation is also used to treat a wide range of ailments and conditions and has been proven to lower cortisol levels (the stress hormone).

If you’re as curious as we are about this unique Member, come on out for coffee and treats before you head to work! Learn more at http://tbchamber.ca/event/morning-w-afloat/.

There is no registration fee for this event, but attendance is limited to Members of the Chamber of Commerce.
