This is part of a year-long ‘Love for Local’ series called NB365: portraits of New Brunswick entrepreneurs, businesses, and organizations. Huddle is a media partner with Love for Local. Today we feature Kat Roberts of Surface Float, in Fredericton.
THE IDEA FOR SURFACE FLOAT WAS BORN OUT OF THE OWNER’S NEED TO HEAL AND CHANGE HER RELATIONSHIP TO STRESS AFTER BURNING OUT AND ALSO BEING DIAGNOSED WITH AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.
Due to stress being a trigger for many health conditions, and with the increasing research showing the negative impacts of chronic stress and self-care neglect can have on our overall health and wellbeing, we wanted to offer a haven to come and replenish.
We chose our therapy modalities carefully to be able to provide those services that offer the most benefits to level up our emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing.
Supporting and collaborating with local businesses has been an amazing experience for us! We have made many meaningful connections and partnerships and have really gained a sense of support and community that has positively impacted us. For example, we have collaborated with yoga teachers, other wellness practitioners, a thermography clinic, local artists, and many more.
We love supporting local.
