“We’re not just reducing symptoms of mental illness here, we’re enhancing mental wellness.”
Dr. Justin Feinstein
Clinical Neuropsychologist

Clinical research investigating Floatation-REST has reported largely beneficial effects across a range of different stress- and pain-related conditions, including hypertension, chronic tension headaches, chronic muscle tension pain in the back and neck, and stress-related pain with burnout depression. There have also been several studies focused on individuals with clinical anxiety, including generalized anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anorexia nervosa, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and social anxiety disorder, with many of these patients also presenting with comorbid major depressive disorder. The evidence published thus far suggests that Floatation-REST is a safe technique for rapidly reducing levels of stress, pain, and anxiety. Clinical trials are currently underway in America, Germany, and Sweden investigating the long-term impact of floating in patients with anxiety disorders, anorexia nervosa, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and insomnia. As the evidence base continues to grow, we will continue to update this repository of peer-reviewed publications studying the clinical effects of Floatation-REST.

Dr Justin Feinstein at LIBR discovered the positive impact on the brain from a float session using functional Neuroimaging. This ground breaking research explores why floating has such a positive effect on the Brain and nervous system.
Float Fact: Riding the Theta Waves
Theta brain waves are most commonly associated with the spacey, dreamlike state of going to sleep or waking up, but research has shown that they’re also present during periods of deep meditation and floating. Unlike typical experiences of Theta brain waves, which are fairly short-lived as we transition between being awake and asleep, floating offers much more extended periods in the Theta state, which likely explains the dreamlike and unconstrained thoughts we have while floating.
