About Us

How it all started

The first outlet, or predecessor, of Zivel® opened in April 2018. From this first location in Kearney, NE, Matt could see that there were other tools that could provide the same, yet different, help that floating provided, and so he began to search for additional tools.

Zivel® was started during the life-long journey of Dr. Matt O’Neill and Brian “Head” Welch to unlock the combined keys of helping people and improving their overall health. The pivotal moment came in the summer of 2017, when Matt floated for the first time in Toronto, while on tour with Korn as their physical therapist. This moment altered his trajectory and firmly placed him on the path of searching for tools to impact people’s health. This search aligned with Brian’s desire to see everyone walk in health and freedom from pain and suffering.

They have since grown that business to employ more than 15 people and become the regional leaders in rehabilitation for all ages. During this time, Matt also founded Midwest Work Wise, LLC, a consulting firm that focused on educating and leading national businesses and university systems through the realm of physical employment testing and compliance within the ADAA. He also started and manages a successful commercial real estate company. In 2018, he founded Harbor Floats & Massage, to provide health improvement services to the central Nebraska region.
