This will be the official site to establish and promote the clinical use of medical floatation therapy as led by Dr Justin Feinstein Ph.D. Director, Float Clinic & Research Center, Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR).
At LIBR we are studying a range of different conditions that all feature high levels of anxiety including Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Panic Disorder, Anorexia Nervosa, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Major Depression. Thus far I have been truly inspired by the results, with patients reporting significant short-term improvement in depression and anxiety after floating. More than simply reducing symptoms of mental illness, the float experience seems to enhance mental wellness, allowing patients the opportunity to experience life in a peaceful and serene state. It should be noted that many of these patients have tried other forms of treatment, including medication and psychotherapy, and unfortunately none of these other treatments have provided much in terms of relief. What has been truly remarkable is that many of these treatment-resistant patients have found that Floataway's circular pool provides them with a level of relief that has been unobtainable through other methods.
More information about our research program can be found on our website, as well as in a recent TIME magazine article featuring Floataway’s circular Tranquility Pool. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any further questions.
