Floating removes stress on muscles, bones and joints. The high concentration of Epsom salt reduces inflammation, regulates electrolytes and stimulates detoxification.
As you float you absorb and increase magnesium and sulfate levels, calming your nervous system and enhancing your body’s natural ability to heal.
Floating is also the perfect way to speed recovery from strains and sprains after the game or performance. Aches, pains and stress fade away.
The athlete emerges from the flotation pod alert but in a state of deep relaxation. Controlled tests have shown that athletic performance is also improved by floating before an event. Floating allows your subconscious to concentrate.
Many professional athletes have even decided to have sensory deprivation tanks installed in their homes, including Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald, New Englad Patriots QB Tom Brady and Wayne Rooney of Manchester United.
The Arizona Diamondbacks, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys have used sensory deprivation tanks, Carl Lewis, often said to be the world’s greatest athlete “used in-tank visualization techniques to prepare himself for his gold medal long jump at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.”
The floatation tank helps the athlete achieve and sustain an optimal level of awareness and arousal, combined with calm confidence during competition.
