Floating For Athletic Performance
Since John Lilly first began studying the effects of floatation/isolation/sensory deprivation tanks in 1954, a vast amount of research has been done showing positive results. Among all this research is the subject of athletic performance. Athletes have been enjoying the benefits of Epsom Salt baths for a long time. Performance Recovery is an integral part of any athlete’s training.
Floating as part of your Sports Recovery:
- Speeds recovery from injuries, sore joints and muscles
- Reduces Lactic Acid build up
- Rapidly eliminates fatigue
- Helps reduce pain and inflammation
- Reduces cortisol levels
- Relaxes the mind
- Improves concentration/focus
- Improves oxygen circulation
Many professional and amateur athletes get into Flotation Tanks, Pods and Rooms in order to recover from Injuries. Golden State Warriors Steph Curry, The Seattle Mariners, SuperBowl LI winners: The Patriots, 2016 World Series Winners: The Cubs, the Ohio State Buckeyes, Swedish professional freeskier and alpine ski racer, 9 time Winter X game medalist, Jon Olsson, and US Olympic Women’s Gold & Silver medal winner Aly Raisman just to name a few. Alex Gregory MBE (Team GB Rowing), 2012/2016 London Olympics Gold Medalist and captain for the Coxless Four in Rio 2016 Floats for post training recovery and relaxation.
The reduced environmental state inside the flotation tank does more than simply support the human body. In a state that mimics the weightlessness of deep space all body stresses vanish. In that position you can concentrate with deeper focus and achieve real results. Members increase agility, enhance speed, minimize recovery time, improve performance, intensity training results, re-coordinate the central nervous system, and optimize circulation.
1 float has shown to relieve pain and stress up to 60% for a period of a few days. 7-9 floats have been shown to reduce pain and stress up to 79.9% for an extended period of time and increase sleep up to 3.5 hours per week. 22-33 floats is where the real magic begins.
Add FET™ to your float and empower yourself to hit your peak.
