In 1982, during the Dr. Thomas Taylor's research, conducted on 450 people at the University of Texas (USA), it was proved that float therapy increases the speed of memorization and improves synthetic thinking, increasing the total level of learning ability.
Professor Arrid Barabats, Doctor of Medicine in psychophysiology, editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, being engaged in a serious study of float therapy at the University of Washington (USA) in collaboration with various leading scientists-physiologists from the United States and Europe, came to the conclusion that float therapy contributes to significant strengthening of the immune system, as during the session increases the production of plasma cells involved in the identification and destruction of pathogenic bacteria (T-cells and C-cells).
In the 1990s, at the University of Toledo (Ohio, USA), Professor John Turner with a group of scientists also studied the effect of float therapy on blood pressure and hormonal levels of the body. His experiments and observations have shown that floating helps to normalize blood pressure and the level of the cortisone hormone in plasma. Professor Turner also proved that float therapy in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis helps to increase the force of capture, increase the mobility of the limbs and reduce pain.
In 2001, at the Medical Faculty of the University of Victoria (Australia), a team of scientists (E. Rogan, T. Morris and P. Gibbons) studied the possibility of using float therapy in osteopathy. Researches have shown that float therapy can be an important element in the treatment of acute pain of unidentifiable nature in the back.
