Faster Recovery with Float Tanks

Injuries can make you perform at less than your best and slow your training.  

A study last year on recovery rates shows significant benefits of floating for pro athletes, weekend warriors and everything in between. 

Even Ironman champion Peter Reid used floating for training and recovery.

From decreasing pain to quickly lowered blood lactate levels, floaters felt a big difference post-exercise.  You can see the specifics of the study by clicking HERE.

Visualize Success

Science tells us visualizing how your body moves and responds in sports is just as beneficial as the physical practice and is an important part of training. 

Floating gives you a serious boost to the mind body connection that happens during visualization.

Professional athletes have used the float tank to their advantage.  For years, floating has enhanced their visualization techniques and taken them to the next level.

Experience all this from floating:

  • Speeds recovery from injuries and helps sore joints and muscles
  • rapidly eliminates fatigue
  • improves oxygen circulation
  • reduces inflammation
  • decreases cortisol levels (stress hormones)

After your event

Post-event floating prevents some discomfort by getting oxygen surging to the muscles quickly and decreasing the inflammatory response.  Fatigue melts away and you can spend time celebrating your accomplishments!

*Carl Lewis used floatation to visualize his winning long jump before in the Olympic Games of 1988.

*The Philadelphia Eagles began floating in 1980 and won the NFC championship that year.  The Philadelphia Phillies also gave it a try in the same year and won their first ever World Series that same year.

*Both the US and Australian Olympic teams use tanks in their training and recovery.
