Veterans and First Responders Floating Program
Feb 28, 2017 06:50PM
Cloud Nine Flotation & Relaxation is currently seeking funding to be able to provide Tucson veterans and first responders with the opportunity to float for free on the 11th of each month. According to owner Kalyn Wolf, many current clients have donated floats from their packages to the project. A video is being planned as well for an online fundraiser. The float center is now looking for veterans and first responders who are interested in a special float program at a very low cost.
Flotation therapy and sensory deprivation tanks have been in the news a lot lately, especially in the field of sports. Many of the Patriots have been floating since 2014 and The Cubs since 2016. For athletes, floating can provide greater focus, deep relaxation and remarkably fast recovery.
“But another benefit of floating in 800 pounds of magnesium is the synergy attained when combined with dark and quiet,” explains Wolf. “It creates a safe and womb-like environment that is perfect for people suffering from PTSD. It is because of tested results in the military through both the Navy Seals recovery center and private float centers that veterans and first responders have found tremendous relief from the symptoms of PTSD.”
