The Australian Sports Commission has cited the benefits of REST and floatation therapy for professional athletes all the way back in 2004! The article in their monthly publication was related to controlling emotions and sports persons managing this through psycho-regulatory training (PRT), and even back then refer to is as one of “the most frequently used PRT techniques”.
Even over a decade ago they had identified the benefits and its remarkable effectiveness for reduction of stress and prevention of burnout for performance athletes. A very interesting point that they outline is that “it usually takes two or three trials to learn how to relax completely when using this technique”, which we would whole heartedly agree with but as testaments from some of our regulars will demonstrate… it just keeps getting better and better after that!
