WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TANKS?

Tanks, pods, cabins, sensory deprivation, isolation…there’s a bit of lingo associated with floating. Although the basic definition of floatation therapy is universal, what you choose to float IN may affect how much you enjoy your experience. Are you really tall?

A little claustrophobic? A tad picky (like us)? If so, it might be helpful to know what’s
on the menu with our floatation tank comparison.

Tanks, pods, rooms…what do they all mean? Here we will try and describe what each of these vehicles are and who might be suited for them. The old idea of long rectangular almost coffin like tanks are a thing of the past with new technology making floatation cleaner, safer and easier than ever before.

Float tanks and Posture:

Floatation tanks allow you to be completely buoyant, so a lack of gravitational pressure is very welcome on the spine and correcting posture. It’s not uncommon to hear your joints pop or crack signifying the decompression. After asking 4,000 people their favourite floatation position, the most comfortable is hands above the head.

Most office workers or drivers are constantly hunched forward which places additional pressure on the neck and upper spine. By rotating your hands out above your head, we can reverse this pattern and relax the muscles that cause headaches, migraines, neck tension and upper back stiffness. It may even take 5-10 minutes for those muscles to relax and for you to fully be immersed in the floatation tank experience.

Study Reveals Flotation Therapy Helps with Depression & Stress Management

The BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine Journal published a study on flotation therapy in 2012. It involves 65 participants: 51 women and 14 men. They all have mental problems like pain, stress, anxiety, depression, and lack of motivation. The group was divided into two where the first group of 37 participants fell into the flotation-REST segment, while the remaining 28 people form a control group.
In seven weeks, the flotation- REST group participants were given twelve therapy sessions of 45 minutes each. After these, they were compared to the control group; the flotation-REST group can handle stress, depression, pain, and anxiety better.

Sensory deprivation tanks (also known as isolation/floatation tanks) can be used in multiple therapeutic, medicinal and restoration methods. We look at using flotation tanks to help aid in healing the body, focusing on reducing lower body, calf pain and leg pain, and how floating can help calf pain relief and diminish specific upper leg or calf trigger points post workout.

Relieving specific pains such as leg or calf pain with floatation therapy can start when beginning and concluding a workout. Using stretching and foam rolling techniques pre and post of your workout can assist and support your time spent in the isolation tank. By using both practices of foam rolling and floating it can help speed up recovery and in theory, this should allow for a higher and more developed level of training.

Float tank treatment for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Floatation Project:

The Fibromyalgia Flotation Project (FFP) has been created to document the efficacy of flotation REST as a treatment for people suffering from fibromyalgia. The International Flotation Research Group, an informal group of scientists and entrepreneurs interested in Flotation REST, organized this research endeavor. FFP is a voluntary, international effort. No remuneration or profit is received by any of the organizers.

The first study completed by the FFP was presented at the Float Summit 2012 in Gothenburg Sweden. The results of that study provided compelling evidence that flotation REST can greatly improve the lives of people with fibromyalgia by significantly decreasing their pain, muscle tension, anxiety and stress. It also significantly increased freedom of movement, energy, mood and quality of sleep. Most of these improvements showed longer-term relief as the participants floated repeatedly. This initial study had participants float once a week for three weeks but case studies suggested that extended use of flotation REST can reduce fibromyalgia symptoms to near zero. It was decided to explore the longer-term possibilities by creating a longer study.

Abdominal Muscle Pain - how floating can help?

We look at how women using floatation therapy can help in relieving and reducing pain throughout the body. Centering on women that are pre, mid and post pregnancy, that have experienced abdominal muscle pain or developed abdominal trigger points that may have resulted in increased abdominal pain throughout their pregnancy. We also list the top 5 ways to relieve abdominal pain after pregnancies.

Using floatation tanks can help in reducing PMS signs, such as cramping, bloating, and soreness, particularly in the abdominal muscle area, which are some of the most common PMS symptoms. With a very high attention of Epsom salts, floatation tank offers an intense and immediate relief from many kinds of pain. Other significant effects of PMS are more hormonal; the physical pain is enough for some that it can lead to anxiety and depression. An improvement in pain can potentially mean a significant drop in these emotional and mental responses to these PMS side effects. If you suffer from PMS symptoms or are looking for an effective solution, floatation therapy can be the right method for you.
