How Navy SEALs Are Using

Float Tanks To Treat


Posted by Ryan Munsey | January 07, 2016

Retired Navy SEALs Jeff Nichols and Alex Oliver are at the forefront of concussion treatment, using sensory deprivation, or float tanks, to help rewire the brain, treat concussion symptoms, and accelerate learning.

Together Jeff Nichols and Alex Oliver own Virginia High Performance, a performance training facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Before opening VHP, both served our country as Navy SEALs where they experienced multiple concussions and dealt with the headaches, loss of sleep and hormonal disruption that followed. They also experienced the benefits that float tanks provide for healing and treating the symptoms of concussions. Since then, they’ve helped hundreds of Special Forces Operators recover from concussions and they’re pushing science forward with brain tracking devices and treatment protocols that could change concussion treatment as we know it.
