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 extension and flexion.
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.
With doors opening at 9am and not closing until 11pm, we give you a chance to make floating a part of your exercise routine. Faster recovery can mean reaching goals faster and reducing inflammation, pain and discomfort.
