I have used the Luna Float Spa several times and found its proprietors extremely personable and friendly…so (thought I) why not interview them! So I contacted Ana-Alycia Quintana (scroll all the way to the bottom to see her and Morgan—see below) and asked if she wouldn’t mind talking a little about herself and Luna.
Okay, Ana-Alycia, tell us a little about yourself!
I grew up in Taos, New Mexico. Taos is full of artists, spiritualists, and wanderers. There is a legend that says the Taos Mountain picks people. If it wants you, you stay forever, if it doesn’t it’s impossible to live there. You can definitely feel the energy! After high school, I left home and lived in Brasil [sic] for almost two years. I then moved to Florida to go to school for psychology. After a couple years there I was missing Taos and decided to move closer. That’s when I met Morgan [Cunnyngham]!
How did the idea for Luna Float Spa originate?
Morgan introduced me to floating. We both loved it so much and had to travel to do it, which was difficult. It was originally Morgan’s idea and I was a bit nervous. After some time, I was completely on board and from then on there was no turning back!
What are the benefits of floating?
The benefits of floating extend into any area of our lives. Stress, anxiety, pain, addiction. What do you want to work on?
[See their FAQs for more information about floating and what you can expect out of it!]
Do you have time to use it yourselves and what are the coolest experiences either of you have had?
I try as much as possible. Sometimes we get to float three times a week, and sometimes it’s once every three weeks—lately I’ve been seeing things on the ceiling of the pod. But the coolest experience was when I could think of a memory and be in that memory. I could hear, smell, touch things in the memory. Very weird!
Have you seen any changes in yourselves since floating?
My body feels much better! I also have more energy, sleep better, more patience, and generally am much happier! Every time I float my mind goes deeper into the meditative state.
Are there any negative side effects?
Most people really love it. The one most common negative experience people have is motion sickness. Even then, it’s not that common.
In your everyday life, have you had any paranormal/metaphysical experiences you’d like to share?
When I was seven, my uncle died in a plane crash. About a week after his death I was outside by myself and I had a “visit” from my uncle. I didn’t hear him or see him. But he was talking to me and I knew what he was saying. He told me that he had died instantly and his friend (the pilot) died minutes after the crash. The autopsy hadn’t come out yet and when it did, that’s what it said. He also told me a man (who lived in Taos) was going to get in an accident soon and his parents should know. The man, whom I didn’t know, died in a motorcycle accident a few weeks later. I’ve had many other experiences, but this is the most significant.
Wow! Pretty incredible!
Okay, tell us three crazy things about you!
- I really don’t like chocolate!
- I’m a very good day dreamer!
- I hope to live in the mountains (away from people) someday.
What are your and Morgan’s long-range goals with and without Luna?
Eventually, I think we would both like to travel and settle down back in Taos…after we make Luna self-sustaining and get some great employees.
Do you like to read, and if so, what do you like to read?
Are there any other goals you both have, either for Luna or yourselves, that you’d like to share?
I really want to travel!
Thank you for your time, Ana-Alycia! I know how busy it can be running your own business, and I thank you for your time! I wish you, Morgan, and Luna all the best!
