Flothetta’s story and the establishment of Float Therapy
The idea of Flothetta (www.flothetta.com) was conceived in the year 2012 by Unnur Valdís, a Product Designer with a special interest in health and wellbeing. The birthplace of the design – Iceland – is a land of wealth when it comes to thermal pools, due to the geological location of the country. The original design consists of a set of leg floats and one head piece, designed to support independent floating in any water as a way to relax, reduce muscle and skeleton stress, letting go of emotional and mental stress and improve overall body-spirit connection. Now Flothetta’s product line offers variety of high quality products for individuals and Aquatic Therapists.
Flothetta is a story of a design project that has given birth to nourishing water wellness culture. The vision of the project was, from the very beginning, been to make healing water activities accessible for all to enjoy. Since the design became available it has opened up a world of healing togetherness in the water, forming little communities where people meet up to enjoy nourishing experiences together in the water.
In 2017 Unnur started collaboration with Omer Shenar, Aquatic Bodyworker specialized in Rehabilitation Hydrotherapy and with skills on many aquatic bodywork techniques. Together they developed “Float Therapy”, which is a deeply relaxing and therapeutic group activity with a training program alongside it. Together they blend experience, skills and passion into a very compact and thoughtful training program that brings quality and high standard approach into the needs of participants and holds space for a beautiful group activity in the water.
