Dan Larsen - Intuitive Counselor and Energy Worker for Intuitive Being in Olympia WA

Dan wears many hats at Oly Float & The Soul Space. He is co-owner of the center, as well as its “Chief Experience Officer” and General Manager. Alongside serving as an experienced float guide, Dan is also an intuitive 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, re-pattern core beliefs, align body, mind and soul, and help clients remember their true self prior to challenging or traumatic experiences that changed how they thought about themselves. He employs a variety of healing modalities to perform clearings for those imbalances, including sound healing, electromagnetic stimulation, hands-on healing that includes reiki and qigong, light therapy, and more. He loves helping people with chronic, difficult states and conditions that other therapies have been unable to heal or resolve.

Dan’s journey to the healing arts was an unconventional one. Evolving through atheistic emptiness, to a study of dharma and meditation, and later to metaphysics and the realms of energy work, his career has found him serving in both fortune 100 healthcare environments and in independent practice.

Dan’s goal in any client session is to get the roots of an imbalance, challenge or condition, analyze the emotional and behavioral patterns that root has presented throughout a lifetime, and identify how to resolve and transcend that pattern, to create a new path that is in alignment with the soul’s true purpose.

Mandy Zabohne

Specialty Areas: Cranio Sacral TherapyMassage Therapy, Body CodeReiki, Intuitive Counseling

All her life, Mandy has sought to make the world a better place, and her passion is in the heart-to-heart support of people to help them become the best and happiest versions of themselves. Mandy came to Olympia in 1998 to attend 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 also practices Polarity Therapy and Zero Balancing, along with continuing her education of 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.

Krella Griswold

Krella Ludesh-Griswold | Licensed Massage Therapist | Olympia WASpecialty Areas: Massage Therapy

Krella (“kree-ya”) came to Oly Float & The Soul Space from a multidisciplinary background of both clinical practice and investment in personal development. With a hybrid career path working as a Zumba instructor and a radiologic technologist before transitioning to massage therapy full-time, Krella has also studied Vipassana meditation.

She has a sweet, grounded presence that immediately makes you feel welcomed and relaxed. Her nurturing massage will leave your nervous system happy and reset. While 60 minute sessions are great, like a good 90 minute float, sessions with Krella get exponentially better after 60 minutes, so we recommend a 90 minute or two hour session to get the full Krella effect.
