Grew up in St. Louis, Missouri where he first learned the importance of family and a healthy lifestyle. He attended college in North Carolina and moved to Richmond for graduate school, luckily meeting his wife in the process. In the summer of 2014, Woody left the unique demands of the legal world to stay at home with his two children, Christopher and Charlotte (a third, Joshua, has since joined the family).
The paradigm shift in the Cheuks' life gave Woody the opportunity to prioritize his family and capitalize on the freedom to achieve a personal goal of owning and operating a business committed to enriching the lives of those in Richmond. A provider-patient relationship with Dr. David Berv to treat chronic sports-related injuries led to a chance conversation between them about floating, something Woody had recently read about and heard on a popular podcast. His discussions with Dr. Berv, who turned out traveled extensively with his wife for the purpose of floating, fostered a growing partnership. Through this collaboration, the health and mental benefits of floatation therapy are now available in Richmond at The Float Zone.
