My name is Robert Barr
and I am the founder and owner of Rubicon Float Studio
. I am a graduate of the University of Washington. Go Huskies! I graduated with a BFA in Photography from the University of Washington in 2009. After school, I founded the successful real estate photography company, Washington Home Tours LLC. While I loved my business, I knew I wanted to help others as part of my life’s mission. I started an existential journey looking at careers and businesses I could start that would help the greater good and improve people's lives.
Eventually, I found float therapy. I first found out about floating in 2013 from some news articles about the art of floating and how it can improve your life. It intrigued me, not only for what it could do to my own health and well being but what it could do for others. What is floating? Simply put, floating is laying on a bed of warm Epsom salt water and floating with ease, in a calming chamber, away from stress and distraction. Allowing you to spend a few moments with yourself, relaxing, repairing, and rejuvenating.
At the start of 2014 I decided to change my path in life. I started to focus full time on getting a Float Studio up and running. I found other successful float centers around the country and started visiting them to learn as much as I could about the industry. What I thought would be an easy to achieve goal, turned into a long journey. I did not realize how difficult starting and operating a Float Studio would be. I spent three years researching and learning best practices and trying to improve and iterate on what the industry has achieved up to this point.
I am very proud to offer floating to the community at large, but particularly proud to be an LGBTQ owned and operated business. Floating offers a wide range of benefits to our community both mental and physical. Many of us deal with the struggles of acceptance in a large community, and floating allows you time to shift your perspective. Floating gives you and others the opportunity to see the world from a new vantage point. It is my hope that through the practice of floating, we will all evolve to become better humans. Float therapy also aids in stress reduction, pain management, creative ideation, and a multitude of other aspects of our lives.
