Dominate your sport  
There are a few key reasons why floatation can help you dominate your sport, although exercise stimulates muscle growth, the growth occurs during relaxation, some 30-40 hours after exercise.  The deep relaxation of floating improves blood circulation and accelerates the growth and regeneration of muscle tissue, you heal faster in the tank due to weightlessness and the anti-inflammatory qualities of the Epsom salt. It reduces lactic acid and muscle tension to speed healing and recovery. It helps in lowering blood pressure and cortisol and rapid elimination of fatigue. Visualization is a truly effective technique to dominate your sport to improve performance, whether you’re fine-tuning your golf swing, evaluating your jump shot or analyzing your running form – visualizing your triumph is a very effective training technique. The floatation tank is the best environment for this practice. While in the tank you have the ability either to wash-away a poor performance or to focus on the positives of your latest and greatest triumph.  In a float session, you can elevate your mental state through increased confidence, concentration, calmness and poise.

Floatation tanks are used by a wide range of sportsmen and women, NFL teams such as the Philadelphia Eagles have used them with documented success.  Olympic teams in the UK have used them to train athletes, the London Wasps incorporate floatation into their post recovery and was recommended by Josh Lewsy. UFC fighters use float tanks, renowned athletes like Jade Johnson, Alex Reid, Philipp Idowu have all incorporated it into their training and recovery.

In 1981, the Dallas Cowboys, regular Superbowl winners, became one of top-line sport’s first advocates of floatation REST as a technique for developing the physical and psychological skills of their players. As sports psychology assumed an ever-growing role along with a realization of the importance of relaxation training, many other eminent USA sportspeople – including the legendary Carl Lewis – started to incorporate floatation into their training regime. The training techniques of the AIS (Australian Institute of Sport) are regarded as amongst the finest in the world. Since 1983 the AIS has been consistent proponents of floatation REST and has done an immense amount of research and case studies that demonstrate its efficacy. Sports Psychologist, AIS Jeff Bond goes so far as to describe the floatation tank as “a new dimension in sports training for the elite athlete”. World-class athletes are highly motivated individuals. In the run-up to an important competition, an athlete may train for over 40 hours a week. Rigorous physical and mental training puts an enormous amount of stress on the athlete’s body and mind. There is a strong tendency for athletes to over-train and this can have as disastrous an effect on performance as under-training. Strenuous physical training creates a build-up of lactic acid in the muscles. An athlete training every day will accumulate increasingly large amounts of lactic acid, experienced by the body as increasing fatigue and chronic muscular tension or pain. Recent studies have directly linked lactic acid to high levels of anxiety and emotional arousal. By its rapid evacuation of lactic acid from the body, floatation enables the athlete to train without strain. The floatation tank offers the athlete an unprecedented degree of control over mood state, helping him or her achieve and sustain an optimal level of arousal during competition. In a study by Dr Peter Suedfeld (University of British Columbia, Vancouver), recreational basketball players – tested one day before and one day after a single session of floatation plus visualization – showed an astonishing mean improvement of 37% in free-throw success compared to control groups.
