More and more athletes are using Floatation Therapy for it's mental and physical benefits. It promotes extreme muscle relaxation, increases oxygen flow to the brain and body and can heal injury in muscles and joints.
Floating reduces the amount of needed recovery time by increasing circulation, reducing lactic acid and alleviating pain from injury. Eliminating gravitational pressure allows the blood to circulate to jointsL, tendons and muscles that are tense from training. A high volume of magnesium also relaxes muscle tissue quicker, reducing muscular fatigue.
High stress levels athletes experience can lead to increased vulnerability to injuries and impaired performance. Floatation therapy is a form of stress management that is shown to reduce blood pressure, cortisol levels and adrenaline.
Mental focus is extremely important to an athlete's performance. Floating provides a profoundly relaxing experience resulting in increased focus, reduced stress and ultimately better performance.
