We're all in need of a little therapy after the year we've had. And Newport's Think Tank Flotation and Wellness wants to make it even easier for folks who need it to receive their unique offering of holistic treatment.

Co-owner of the Northern Kentucky business, Joe Daniels, announced on Sept. 16 that on days he is working at the facility, he will be offering "pay what you can last minute floats" for as long as he is able to do so, with hopes to help as many people as possible. 

"While many people book out days or a week ahead of time, sometimes people don't have that option," his post reads.

"Many have lost their jobs or extra income, and we want to be able to stay providing our service as well! Mental wellness is suffering for many people. Floating can really help with that. There are many times that we have a room available that goes unused. An empty float tank doesn't help us or anyone."

If you aren't familiar with Think Tank, the business is centered around flotation therapy, which was developed in the 1950s, commercialized in the 1980s and began gaining popularity once again in the 2010s, thanks to comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan and other flotation therapy enthusiasts, according to Think Tanks website.

The floatation treatment provides mental, physical and emotional therapy, offering "an hour of quiet contemplation" in 10-inch deep saltwater.
