Floating has been around for several decades, and while most benefits of floating are anecdotal (reported unofficially by regular floaters, and not yet studied in a scientific manner), some health benefits of floating have been studied in controlled trials and research published in peer-reviewed journals. Floating is a contemporary and complementary therapy that (on it’s own, or in conjuction with other therapies such as psychoanalysis, massage, meditation etc) can produce remarkable results in individuals. We are excited to be aware of the increasing popularity of floating, and are aware of several scientific and controlled studies being conducted by university researchers on the benefits of floating. We will be sure to inform you of the outcomes of these studies when they are available (although we do not expect to be surprised by the result that floating is good for you!).
We are interested in your experiences in our tanks, and have a comments book in our tea room. Please feel free to share with us your experiences on the day, and we are always interested in hearing from you post float too.
Broadly speaking, the benefits you could prepare for are:
- deep RELAXATION,
- better SLEEP and MUSCLE RECOVERY,
- a REDUCTION IN PAIN and
- an increase in CREATIVE THOUGHTS
