New Ulm Chamber's CEO, Michael Looft, and Floating
Our very own Chamber President and CEO, Michael Looft, has benefited from Flotation Therapy. After an accident, as he tackled the road to recovery, Michael floated to help with pain management and stress relief. “A day after my first 60-minute float, my blood pressure went down considerably, my leg felt marginally better and my back felt adjusted.” The relief that he experienced continued to increase as he continued to float.

After a tumble off my roof in early 2017 it was safe to say I would not be a roofer. It was also very noticeable that I needed to find alternative treatment options for physical therapy. As a busy retail manager at the time, I did not have time for the conventional kind of physical therapy. I did most of the recover steps by myself with strict instructions from my surgeon. At the end of the day I needed something that would re-energize me, relieve stress and reduce pain. I was put in contact with a business that did float therapy in Mankato. I went in expecting it to be a scam. I could not believe that floating in salt water would possibly make aches and pains go away. To appease many people in my life, I made an appointment and started my first float session 4 months after my original surgery. The surgery left 2 plates, 4 pins and 2 vertical pins in my left ankle. My first float was a nerve-racking experience. I couldn’t get comfortable; my mind would not shut off and the music was not my style. I almost did not go back. But a day after 60-minute float my blood pressure went down considerably, my leg felt marginally better and my back felt adjusted. I went back a second, third and fourth time and each time I floated it was a better result. I’m now a supporter of float therapy and have seen the great properties that results from floating. If you have questions contact Virginia Suker-Moldan at Calm Lake Floats in New Ulm. She is a professional with great knowledge in float therapy and how it can help you. You don’t have to take my word for it, try it yourself more than once and you’ll find it a relaxing oasis.
