Athletes around the world use flotation to prepare for and recover from sports activities. While you may think that lying on your bed or sofa would give your muscles a rest, gravity is still applying vast amounts of stress on various parts of the body. Your body must maintain tone while holding itself against that gravity.
While floating, however, you are able to experience the lowest state of gravity – without leaving Earth. This total relaxation gives every muscle a break from fighting gravity, and the benefits can be startling.
