Sportsmen and women from various fields (but particularly runners) use the tanks to get the most out of their training routines or to speed up recovery from injuries. In fact, many organisation such as the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and members of the Singaporean Olympic team sees the use of the float tank as an integral part of its athletes’ training regimes.

- Pregnant Women & Elderly
Heavily pregnant women get enormous relief from the soothing water and the complete support that it offers. It’s a wonderful haven to escape to! Floating is very comfortable in the later stages of pregnancy, thanks to the way it alleviates the stresses that gravity places on the body. However, we recommend that, like many activities, it should be avoided in the first trimester.
People Suffering Pain
Floating causes the body to release endorphins (the body’s own painkiller) and, in particular, beta-endorphins. These are more powerful than many prescription drugs. Sufferers of migraine, back pain, arthritis, skin disorders, insomnia, PMS, Fibromyalgia and other ailments can find relief from regular floatation. There is also evidence that floating lowers blood pressure and heartbeat rate, and can minimise the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
