Everyone loves to follow celebrity trends, especially when it comes to health and beauty secrets. Most of their routines and habits are far out of reach for the ordinary person. After all, most of us can’t afford to spend thousands on hair maintenance or makeup. One celeb-favored activity that’s within reach, however, is floating. More and more super stars are choosing to wash their troubles and pains away with this method.
- Author and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss says that he’s experienced large reductions in anxiety from his sessions, and he’s even used them to help learn new languages faster. Floating can help with this, because it allows the brain to disconnect from distractions and recover from stress.
- Olympic Gold Medalist Carl Lewis used float tanks to prime himself before the 1988 Games. He said that they were helpful when using visualization techniques and for his muscles. Floating can aid in muscle healing by easing inflammation.
- Singer/songwriter John Lennon actually credited floating for helping him ditch his addiction to heroin in 1979. He claimed that the sensation of being removed from stimuli saved him from the damaging effects of those narcotics. Some people state that using a tank is a spiritual experience because there’s no outside stimulation at all.
- Supermodel/actress Elle Macpherson was such a fan of the relaxation and skin care benefits of magnesium that she actually owned her own tank. It’s easy to see why, since the exposure to Epsom salt can leave skin soft and glowing after just one session.
- Comedian and Ultimate Fighting Championship commentator Joe Rogan proves that there’s no stereotypical type of floater. Rogan is an outspoken advocate for floatation and thinks “it’s one of the most incredible pieces of equipment for self-help and introspection.”
- NFL Athlete Julian Edelman floats to recover from injuries, prevent them from happening, and train his mind for better performances. A large part of the effectiveness comes from the fact that Epsom salts decrease the amount of lactic acid in muscles.
- NBA Athlete Steph Curry also enjoys the feeling of renewal that comes with a float session. He likes it so much, in fact, that he has released a video detailing his feelings and the experience that a visit entails.
Many celebs spend time and money to look and feel their best. If so many of them back floating, isn’t it time you gave it a try?
