Why Free2Be

Free2Be Wellness Group Training

Founder, Buket Necip is a “burnout” survivor. After working in executive roles in the world of finance and fintech for over 20 years, she realized she was desperately missing … something. 


“COVID gave me an opportunity to see how much of my family and ‘me’ I missed,” she says. 


Buket realized she wasn’t alone in feeling disconnected from her true self. With a degree in Health Sciences and a passion for fitness and coaching, Free2Be Wellness grew from Buket’s knowledge that so many of us need to focus on our whole selves - our body, mind and soul. A unique take on wellness, Free2Be has transformed and elevated the outdated “gym” experience, creating instead a fully-equipped training studio that also offers float therapy, mindfulness and meditation practices, nutritional counselling, and an atmosphere of support and acceptance.

  • What is a float pod?
    A float pod is a sensory deprivation chamber that removes external distractions such as noise and light to help you reach a state of true relaxation. Due to the high epson salt content, it is thought that floating is similar to experiencing zero gravity.
  • Can I use the float pod if I’m pregnant?
    Yes! You can use the float pod while pregnant, however, we encourage you to seek medical advice prior to floating.
  • Can I float if I’m on my period?
    Yes, you can float while menstruating.The experience would be similar to going to a swimming pool while on your period.
  • How many people can float at a time?
    Our float pods are made for individual use only.
  • Do I need to shower prior to the float?
    Your hair will get wet while in the float pod - it’s inevitable! We do provide a hair dryer and all the styling tools you’ll need to quickly get ready for the rest of your day.
  • Should I wear a bathing suit in the pod?
    Birthday suits only! We also encourage you to remove watches and any jewelry to prevent potential damage caused by the salt content of the float pods.
  • How are the float pods cleaned?
    Float pods are cleaned and disinfected in between each flotation session. The water is filtered multiple times through either a 1 or 10 micron filter and treated with UV light to sanitize the water. There is also residual hydrogen peroxide for supplementary sanitation and oxidation.
  • Are float pods regulated?
    In response to floatation therapy’s growing popularity, The Ontario Ministry of Health provided recommendations for Floatation Tanks in August 2019. Our facilities have followed all guidelines to provide you with the best support possible.
  • Can or should I wear corrective eyewear (glasses or contact lens) in the float pod?
    Contact lens should be removed prior to entering the float pod. If salt gets into your eyes during your float, your eyes will become irritated. Wearing contact lenses will make it difficult to rinse the salt from your eyes quickly. Glasses can be worn, or removed prior to the float, depending on your preference.

    Float therapy is not covered by most insurance providers at this time.
  • Is there a set up fee?
