Recovery from Athletic Workouts
You have just trained, perhaps over-trained, and are feeling the fatigue and muscle tightness settle in.
Imagine the relief of floating effortlessly in a warm, quiet pool of water. Research has shown that Floatation Therapy decreases cortisol levels and increases the production of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers. Total relaxation promotes blood circulation and muscle growth. The Epsom salt solution reduces lactic acid build-up, maximizing the benefits of your workout. The rate of your recovery is greatly accelerated.
You have that big tournament tomorrow, or perhaps you are running a marathon. Will you perform at your best, set a personal record?
Imagine floating effortlessly inside a dark and quiet chamber, freed of sensory input, and relaxed. Endorphins flood your brain, and anxiety dissolves. Your brain soon begins to produce theta waves. In this state you are able to visualize your performance vividly. You achieve a new level of mental clarity, and can prepare your routine in a completely relaxed state. You are able to deliver peak performance in conditions of extreme pressure.
The list of professional athletes who recognize the power of floatation therapy is growing. The Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies used floatation therapy in 1980, and both went on to win championships that year. Carl Lewis used floatation to visualize his winning long jump before the 1988 Olympic Games. Ironman champion Peter Reid, and in recent years, members of the National Hockey League, National Football League and US, British and Australian Olympic teams have also used floatation therapy to achieve their highest potential.
