Float Tanks are the perfect performance enhancing tool for athletes operating at optimum levels. That's why the Australian Institute of Sport have been using flotation tanks since 1983. Constructed of soundproof and lightproof materials, Float Tanks are designed to eliminate external stimuli (releasing 85% of brain capacity). A zero-gravity float environment is created by combining 500 kilograms of Epsom salts with 1000 litres of water. The water is maintained at 35.5 degrees (body temperature) which is skin receptor neutral. The result is a unique, relaxing and invigorating environment that places you in the deepest state of relaxation possible.
Elite athletes use float tanks to:
Improve strength, speed and endurance.
Accelerate recovery after athletic activity.
Enhance physical and mental relaxation.
Accelerate recovery from injury (twice as fast according to AIS).
Build body mass.
Heal naturally without drugs or manipulation.
Identify tension areas for diagnosis and treatment.
Sharpen mental focus.
Alleviate stress, anxiety and depression.
Improve sleep quality and achieve a sense of deep relaxation.
Using a float tank:
Eliminates gravity pressure (no weight or pressure on muscles, joints and bones).
Enables brain to transition into theta state (deep state of physical and mental relaxation).
Releases endorphins (natural painkiller) into the body.
Increases blood circulation.
Increases utilization of hormones and regulation of electrolytes.
Breaks down lactic acid (chemical responsible for sore muscles after exercising).
Reduces blood pressure and oxidisation; increases blood flow and distribution of red blood cells
Assists in flushing cortisol, lactate and adrenaline.
