The Float Conference was an amazing weekend filled with great speeches and a lot of opportunities to socialize with float industry leaders, potential float center owners and other float enthusiasts. The speeches were all recorded so even if you couldn't make it out, you'll have the opportunity to see them online!Read More
If you live with pain or want to push yourself further than you ever have, our float center was created with you in mind. From the moment this place was conceived we desired to bring you meaningful, effective treatments that would help you change your life.
I have worked with people for years who live with pain. In particular, FIbromyalgia. As a massage therapist, I often felt helpless as massage often gave very little or temporary relief. But float tanks seem to offer hope for bigger results and longer relief.
When Dr. Rod Borrie talked about his Fibromyalgia Float Project at the 2012 Float Conference, I knew this was one of the first programs we would implement.
While the Fibromyalgia Flotation Project has closed, we continue to see those who deal with the daily pain find relief in floating. The results of this study should be available in early 2017.
Below you will find Rod Borrie's presentation at the Float Conference in 2012. The one that inspired us to be a part of his new research project. He makes the stunning results from the first study easy to understand. Follow along while viewing the presentation slide show HERE.
Floatation REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique, also known as the act of simply being in a Float Tank) was used to test a theory about post-exercise recovery. The goal was to determine if a one hour flotation R.E.S.T. session would aid in the recovery process following maximal eccentric knee extensions and flexions. There were many things measured pre and post-study, but results showed flotation R.E.S.T. appears to have a significant impact on blood lactate and perceived pain compared to a one hour passive recovery session in untrained healthy males. So what does this mean? Well, Flotation R.E.S.T. may be utilized for recreational and professional athletes to help reduce blood lactate levels after eccentric exercise.Read More
