Freed from all sensation of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound (which together account for 90% of normal neuromuscular activity), you conserve and redirect vast amounts of natural physical and mental energy.
Sports
We’re often visited by professional sportsmen and women who use the tanks to maximize their training routines and accelerate recovery from injuries and over training.
The float tank is an integral part of the Australian Institute of Sports training and recovery regime for Olympic athletes.
In 2008 we were honored to have five athletes from Team GB use our float tanks on a weekly basis. Philips Idowu, Tasha Danvers and Jade Johnson, all told us that the float tanks had been ex-ceptionally beneficial for both physically and mentally in their individual performances.
Carl Lewis, arguably the greatest track athlete in history, used in-tank visualization in his preparation for his gold medal-winning performances at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Phillips Idowu
Phillips visited a float center on almost a weekly basis throughout 2008 when he went on to achieve Gold at the 2008 Valencia World Indoor Championship followed by a Silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the Triple Jump. When he first came to us he hadn’t been training for 6 weeks and was undergoing intensive physiotherapy.

Jade Johnson
“When I first got into float therapy I tried it 3 times in a week and it was so beneficial that I had an-other two sessions leading up to the 2008 European Cup at Annecy, France. It was there I jumped a personal best of 6.81 m and qualified for the Beijing Olympics.”

Medical
Floating takes the pressure of gravity off joints and muscles and your body is put in to a high state of physical relaxation. Blood pressure and oxygen intake reduce but at the same time blood flow and the distribution of red blood cells increases.
This speeds recovery from injury and helps flush any lactate, cortisone and adrenaline that may have built up through training or performance.
Floating has been shown to loosen the muscles and give more control over your nervous system. This reduces the risk of injury during training or competition. Floating not only accelerates the recovery process, but releases vast quantities of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller.
Modern training methods focus on helping the athlete to master the ‘inner game’ to develop the perfect synchronicity between mind, body and emotion, which is the hallmark of a champion. In the tank the athlete can reach the level of concentration necessary for visualization to have a quantifiable impact on his or her performance.
Physical exercise can cause a build of lactic acid, which is often experienced as pain and a cramping of the muscles. It has also been linked with feelings of depression known as ‘post-game let down’ which can also affect part-time joggers. Floating resets the body’s chemical and metabolic balance, reducing the risk of over training.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
