ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Forest City Float, a float tank and Infrared sauna center, celebrates its grand opening in downtown Rockford.
The center serves as an expansion to Namaste Studios. It offers floatation and infrared therapies to eliminate the senses and boost mental wellness.
Forest City Float includes pods that are soundproof and dark, offering people a space to get away from external stimuli and focus on wellness.
After testing these therapies in Milwaukee, owners say they were inspired to bring it to the Forest City.
"It's a very interesting modality for people to have this available in this city," says Ben Bogard. "Usually you find this in larger cities. We were so impressed with it that we decided to bring it into Rockford."
Forest City Float hosts an open house for the public from 6 to 8 p.m. You can visit the center at 223 East State Street, Suite 202.
