When you float you're in good company, not literally, you're in a private room when you actually float!
But if you're a regular floater then you'll agree with some of these celebrities about the benefits
1. Tim Ferris - Entrepreneur & New York Times Best Selling Author
Mr. Ferris has experimented with floatation as a way to learn new languages, it's been proven that taking a break after learning something improves recall by up to 70% so floating after studying for an exam or presentation can really improve how quickly you learn. Ferris also credits floating for reducing his stress and anxiety.
"I found it to be one of the most anxiety reducing experiences I've ever had"
2. Elle Macpherson - Supermodel
The Australian model used floatation throughout her career - not only for the relaxation benefits but also for the natural skin care benefits of the magnesium. She loved it so much she owned her own tank!
3. Joe Rogan - Podcaster, Comedian, & UFC Commentator
Perhaps one of the most vocal advocates for floatation, Joe says the float tank will show you all of the issues in your life that you don't like, things that are bothering you, and things about your behaviour that need to change.
"I think it's one of the most incredible pieces of equipment for self-help and introspective thought you can ever find."
4. Julian Edelman and a number of other NFL athletes
Professional athletes float for a number of reasons - from faster recovery from injury (and prevention of injury) to visualisation techniques for successful performances. Additionally, floating decreases lactic acid in muscles, muscle tone stimulation, minimisation of pain, and more. Tom Brady owns his own flotation tank, the Patriots have private float tanks in their training facilities, and Julian Edelman (among others) reportedly floats daily.
4. Wayne Rooney
Manchester United footballer Wayne Rooney owns his very own float tank and whilst recovering from injuries spent up to 10 hours a week floating. He credits his time in the float tank in allowing him to recover quickly and be back on the field well before expected.
Also fascinating is this study 'Can There Be a Cure For PTSD' where the Military Veteran Project is compiling research & treatment data about alternative therapies for post traumatic stress disorder. 70% of veterans who have been diagnosed have been able to reduce their medication while using Floatation Therapy!
