Hello my name is Lacy Motch and I am the new owner of Blu Waters Float Spa. Pictured above is my family - My husband Richard Motch III (3er), Griffin, Gracie, Greta, Granger & Vivian. As you can imagine there is never a dull moment.
3er proudly served in the Marine Corp for 8 years and I worked as a General Manager at Applebee's for 8 years.
My husband was listening to a Joe Rogan (UFC commentator) podcast and was intrigued by what they were talking about... Floatation Therapy....... Sensory Dreprivation.... Immediately he started researching. He discovered that float therapy was good for stress, tension, sleeping, ptsd and many more items. He also found a float spa in Effingham IL only 45 minutes away from where we live. He woke me up one morning and told me he had a surprise. He had booked us Float sessions. I was initially a little hesitant and nervous, but desperate to relieve the tension and pain in my back and legs due to stress and constantly being on my feet I agreed to go.
After experiencing the first float, we were HOOKED. This was a game changer for both of us. We continued to float over the next several months and continued to be in awe of the mental clarity and physical change we both felt. During one of my floats I experienced a thought in my head that I couldn't shake.... I could open my own Float Spa and imagine the hundreds of people that I could help with floatation therapy. I couldn't wait to tell my husband my "Amazing Thought". To my surprise he was Completely on board.
I went home and researched everything there was to know about floating and booked us tickets to Portland Oregon for a 2 day apprenticeship at Float On. The float capital of the world.
Over the next couple of weeks all of my excitement and enthusiasm turned to fear. Am I really going to leave my Career of 13 years... what I've worked so hard for?? I've never owned a business. I will be completely out of my comfort zone. So I began Praying- "Lord whatever your plan is for my life please help me see it. I am so afraid of this step and I'm second guessing everything," I barely got my prayer out when my husband called me...... YOUR NEVER GOING TO BELIEVE THIS.... I just spoke with the Owner of Float Effingham and he is planning on expanding his practice and might be interested in selling. I nearly dropped the phone and started crying...... "OKAY GOD I HEAR YOU!!"
God will truly open doors in your life.
Here I am only 3 Months later sitting in our new float spa....writing our story.
I feel truly blessed to be given this opportunity and to be given this platform to help so many different people.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. -Proverbs 3:5-6
God bless you,
