What our guests have to say...

En fantastisk første oplevelse med floating! Manden i receptionen var meget imødekommende og gav klare og letforståelige instruktioner om, hvad man skulle gøre og hvordan man skulle forberede sig. Derudover var der et dejligt udvalg af snacks til sidst! Jeg kommer helt sikkert igen, når jeg er tilbage i København!
Literally, the best place to unwind. I’ve been stressed and tired from work, but I can say that I’ve been better since discovering Copenhagen Float. Floating at CPHFLOAT has relieved my muscle pains and reduced my stress levels!
Jeg havde den bedste massage i årevis!! Damen var super sød, og jeg havde den bedste tid. Jeg føler mig afslappet, men også “fikset”. Studiet er meget hyggeligt, og jeg elskede snacksene bagefter. Hele personalet var meget imødekommende og venligt. Anbefales 100%! 🙂
Dejlig anden oplevelse hos Copenhagen Float. Deres opmærksomhed på detaljer er fantastisk. De får dig til at føle dig afslappet og velkommen fra det øjeblik, du træder ind. Vi gjorde den ene times floatingsession, der føltes som at træde ind i en dyb meditativ tilstand, og jeg følte mig forfrisket og meget afslappet ved slutningen af det. Kan varmt anbefales!
