The Compass Rose Health and Wellness Centre

The Compass Rose Health and Wellness Centre is offering all current and retired NSTU members a 10% discount on a Float Membership and 50% OFF a first time regularly priced float session.  At The Compass Rose Health and Wellness Centre, our first priority is to make anyone who comes through our doors comfortable and at rest. 

We offer a range of services that promote relaxation and rejuvenation.  Float therapy, massage therapy, auricular acupuncture, sensory therapy and counselling therapy are some of the services we offer.  Our centre offers rooms for professionals, workshop facilitators, and any one seeking a quiet and professional space to meet. All clients have access to complimentary tea, coffee, water, and wi-fi in our Chill-ax room.

We also provide an opportunity for children to learn, relax, and explore in our Sensory Room.  This is a multi-functional room that can be used for therapy, relaxation, and child programming, while care givers relax and enjoy our other services.  

Float Therapy or R.E.S.T. (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Treatment) has been described as “meditation for lazy people.”  Your experience begins as you enter your private room and shower.  Climb into your personal Float Pod filled with a dense Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate or epsomite) warmed to body temperature.  Adjust your music or lighting and lay down. The superior buoyancy of the salt solution produces a near zero gravity experience. All that remains is to close your eyes and melt.

With repeated treatment some people appear to establish new set points in the body—allowing them to cut back on pain medication.

Our Float Membership is designed for those who love to float.  Each month you are billed $59 and receive a float that is banked and never expires.  As a member, each additional float is charged $59 and if you bring a friend they receive that float for the same price.  There is no limit to the number of floats per month. Also watch for our many specials and seasonal packages.

For more information, please visit our website, or call (902) 346-2158. Additional information about float therapy is available online at and on our facebook page.
