Can’t say enough good about my 3 float experiences. My first float was right after a weekend of 100 mile bike ride and 20 mile run. Every muscle hurt and a massage would have just been torture. The feeling after 1 hour of floating was equal to any feeling I’ve had after an hour long massage. Completely relaxed and all joints were pain-free! Didn’t need to endure the 1hour of massage torture, just lay back and relax in the Epsom loaded waters. Went back again after completing an ironman triathlon and then again after a 200 mile Ragnar race.
