DAPHNEY + FRANCIS
他們在2015年泰國度假之旅中首次嘗試漂浮水療。在第一次漂浮之後，他們對漂浮的效性感到驚訝，身心都得到極大的療癒。同年，Daphney 因正式接觸了香薰療法後了解更多整全身心靈健康，碰巧兩人都有著創業的心願; 他們便立刻意識到香港, 世界上最繁忙的城市之一, 是缺乏這種獨特的體驗。
FLOAX代表Float + Relax，也將芳香療法和整全健康完美結合。 他們希望繼續以創意性的方式分享他們的整體健康願景，以促進這城市身心健康。
Founded as a couple's mutual pursuit of creative life and wellness balance in 2016, FLOAX is inspired by various luxurious spa experiences they gained in their vacations.
As a global 4A Agency's video producer, Francis had been suffering from long term insomnia and spine problem due to high stress and long hours shooting. Daphney, a former senior fashion designer in an international fashion brand, realised a piece of missing calmness inside her after years of unstoppable mind with trend analysis, design thinking and catching deadlines. In order to balance the typical stressful working life, they would squeeze time to getaway with the nature, sunshine, and enjoy as much spa treatment as they can! Until they met floatation therapy, that pivoted their life since then, and decided to make courageous step to start FLOAX, and aim to bring an alternative way of relaxation, combining benefits for body, mind and soul to their home in Hong Kong.
The couple first experienced floatation therapy in Thailand in 2015. After the first float, they were amazed by the exceptional healing benefits and its effectiveness. At the same year, Daphney stepped her feet in aromatherapy to encounter holistic wellness, and with an aspiration of starting their entrepreneurship, they immediately recognised this unique type of wellness opportunity is lacking in Hong Kong, one of the most stressful cities in the world.
FLOAX represents Float + Relax with a perfect combination of aromatherapy + wellness. They hope to continue to share their vision of holistic wellness in a creative way to promote mental and physical health.
Educated and worked in the U.K. and Hong Kong for over a decade, Daphney started out her journey as a fashion designer.
In 2014, Daphney’s growing interest in scent and wellness led her to aromatherapy, where she soon became a certified IFA aromatherapist, allowing her to understand the wonders of aromatherapy and the importance of holistic healing. Further to acquiring the qualification, Daphney is even more determined to start her own spa which completely deviates from her original profession, to explore creativity into life more than on garments only.
Since the opening of FLOAX, Daphney continues to develop her passion through travelling which helps her to understand different spa culture and she hopes continually incorporate other forms of relaxation therapies to FLOAX in the future, she is also extending her knowledge with continuous training in including meditation, crystal healing & sound healing etc.
