We're Rest & Revive, a health and wellness center located in the heart of Genesee County, serving our friends and neighbors from the GLOW Region and beyond with natural healing and relaxation.

Hi! We're Gary VanValkenburg and Brandon Buckel, two guys with a passion for Float Therapy - a simple, natural way to promote stress relief and pain management. But it's not just Floating and the profound way it can transform lives that drove us to start a health and wellness center. We also truly believe that deep, restorative sleep brings brighter days with less stress, less irritability, and less pain. That's why in our Float Center, we bring our clients into a world of Float Therapy for the body and mind; we offer sleep products like Pressure Relieving Mattresses that are temperature controlled to relieve nightly aches and pains; CBD products to help alleviate the negative side effects of stress, anxiety and pain; aromatherapy and all-natural body care products to help soothe the senses and ease you into a life of comfort.

Our Grand Opening
We're excited to meet you, to hear your story and to help you find a means of improving your quality of life.

A Harley man to the core, for most of his life Gary's been a die-hard biker. Rumor has it, Gary was born riding a bike.

Running a small business is in his blood. Gary's been serving our community for over 45 years! During any random shopping trip he goes on, the odds of him running into someone he's helped is about 99%. Maybe 100%.

Gary's a Vietnam Veteran and regularly participated in the Patriot Guard.

Gary's reason for floating? Relaxation, stress relief, and arthritis relief.




Brandon met his wife online. Rachel was from Florida, and after 3 years of countless emails and phone calls, they finally met at the airport in 2011. It was love at first flight.


Brandon enjoys quoting one-liners from films he's seen. He may have snuck in a line or two while chatting with you.


While being home-schooled, Brandon learned to play the piano and successfully managed to teach his older brother how to play - albeit with some strict brotherly discipline.


Brandon's reason for floating? Relaxation, stress relief, and migraine relief.
