We met a man

Beyond Rest’s founding brothers met a man who would be more influential in their lives than they had ever imagined.

When the paths of brothers Nick and Ben Dunin crossed with a man who operated on a higher level of consciousness, they were awestruck by his unique “super power”.

He performed on a higher plane than others. His keen observational skills propelled him past superficial interactions, even with people whom he had just met.  He stood out in his ability to immediately assess everything and everyone around him.

The result? He enjoyed the benefits of superior experiences in all areas of his life – in work, relationships, health – everywhere.

The Dunin brothers were curious to know where this “super power” originated. They learned that it was attributed to daily floats.


We saw the opportunity

Intrigued by the concept, Nick and Ben tried it for themselves.

Nick floated and he achieved a relaxed state of flow almost immediately, in fact, in his very first float he saw the business potential and hatched the idea for Beyond Rest. Immediately following his first float, Nick wrote out the basic plan that the company still follows today.

Conversely, Ben was struck more by floating’s physical benefits. Active in martial arts, he immediately appreciated the pain reduction and relaxation benefits, and float after float he also began to see the performance enhancing results. Better rest and restoration enhanced his natural abilities.

We became floating evangelists

While coming at it from different perspectives, the brothers agreed there was considerable value to be found in floating. People in all walks of life needed this.

Floating could be life, performance, mind, emotional, creativity, well-being and physically enhancing in its rewards. Floating could also increase awareness, connection, clarity, control, and lead to enhancements in spirituality, while reconnecting people with their true selves.

Nick and Ben were inspired by the possibilities. The world needed this. Floating needed to go mainstream.

It was their passion and need to make a difference for others that drove them to  make sure that this happened.

Beyond Rest will make floating mainstream

There are over 500 float centres worldwide, and 300+ in Germany alone. The US, Canada and other countries are growing in their adoption. The world is waking up to the mind and body benefits of floating. It is endorsed by the Swedish government and German doctors are now prescribing floats instead of drugs for stress and relaxation.

It is the Dunin dream to bring floating to Australia, and to raise awareness of and appreciation for floating worldwide and to ensure that people are reconnecting with themselves through floating.

"We want to see this industry grow to mainstream status in Australia and globally. It’s so important that we even lead, inspire and work with others who are considered “competitors” to increase the awareness of floating, its usage and it many benefits." - Nick Dunin.

We reconnect people to their true selves

We’ve seen the difference floating can make in people’s physical and emotional lives. We’ve seen it help to elevate people to levels of enlightened consciousness, enhance peak performance, and radically improve the quality of life for people of all walks of life – from harried mums through to all-star athletes.

If we can do our part in making this a reality for everyone, then our mission will be accomplished.

Beyond Rest brings the countless benefits of floating to the masses and improves people’s lives one float at a time. Its ultimate cause is to create an inspirational experience which reconnects people to their true selves and to a life of purpose.

We think that everyone deserves to find their “super powers”!
