Along with the owner-operator team, you will also meet our experienced float guides, Reuben, Jess, Sophia and Nic.
Whoever you talk with at Oly Float, we’ll help you identify the best approach to floating specific to your personal needs, whether it’s for injury management, sports performance enhancement, meditation and mind training, recovery from trauma, or just simple relaxation and escape from daily stress for an hour or two.

All her life, Mandy has sought to make the world a better place, and although she still loves to protest, her passion is in the heart-to-heart support of people to become the best and happiest versions of themselves.
Mandy came to Olympia in 1998 to attend the The Evergreen State College, where she graduated with a degree in political economy, environmental science, and art, while also working with Latin American solidarity campaigns and teaching as a volunteer in the state prison at Shelton. She has been highly influenced by the Anti-Oppression curriculum of Dr. Leticia Nieto, which places our personal, emotional struggles in the context of our place and privileges in society. Her commitment to social and ecological justice is a huge motivation to help individuals clear physical and emotional obstacles that prevent us from living as we know we’d like to live.
She discovered her love of healing arts while searching for a deeper level of that transformation. She graduated from Brenneke School of Massage in 2008, and soon after enrolled in the most in-depth cranio-sacral therapy program available in Washington, taught by acupuncturist Ursula Popp. The skills of cranial work combine beautifully with the energetic healing techniques of her mentor, Jennifer Nevy, including Body Code, Emotion Code, Natural Force Healing, Reiki, and Hands of Light. Both of these programs include a foundation of Five Elements Chinese Medicine, which seeks to understand the body and psyche as a natural system that heals through balancing itself. She has also continued her education though Aromatherapy, Sound Healing, and Herbal Medicine. (She loves to study and she loves to share what she learns.) She uses Applied Kinesiology both as a tool in these healing techniques, and to discover which techniques are most helpful for each custom session. Everything she offers can be used for the treatment of acute or chronic injuries, complementary care, and relaxation, or personal growth, prevention, and wellness.
Mandy provides coverage for PIP claims (auto accidents), but otherwise does not accept insurance claims.

In addition to being one of our experienced float guides who will greet you at the reception desk here at The Soul Space, Dan is also a counselor and energy worker with Intuitive Being. Dan and Intuitive Being offer a range of wellness and counseling services designed to free you of your emotional baggage and physical challenges and return you to your pure self. He uses applied kinesiology as a primary diagnostic tool to get to an incredibly detailed view of the deep roots of clients’ imbalances, whether they be at the level of the conscious mind, subconscious mind or buried deeper somewhere in the energy body. He employs a variety of healing modalities to perform clearings for those imbalances, including sound healing, electromagnetic stimulation, reiki and hands-on healing, qigong, light therapy, and more.
Dan’s journey to the healing arts was an unconventional one. He spent 15 years working primarily in Fortune 500 healthcare companies, where he learned the good and the bad of the “corporate” side of healthcare. He always wanted to have a more direct role in helping people with their health and healing and set about doing just that. In 2011, he left the Fortune 500 world behind and set out on a new path to be of direct service to others. He formed Intuitive Being with his partner, Mandy Zabohne, as a collaborative practice of counselors who integrate Applied Kinesiology as a central tool for helping clients better access and manage their physical, mental and emotional selves.

Vanessa’s passion for wellness began as a teenager when she had to overcome health issues including allergies, blood sugar levels, and anxiety. She was and still is passionate about holistic health that addresses the root of the issue instead of simply treating the symptoms.

She loves to teach by example and lives a life filled with joy so that she can spread that wherever she goes. Vanessa’s goal is to help you live a vital, healthful, fun, purposeful, and joyous life through healthful eating, exercise, fun, and massage.
