Abstract

Flotation Restricted Environmental Stimulation (REST) has produced promising preliminary results in sports performance enhancement (Hutchison, 1984; Lee & Hewitt, 1987; Stanley, Mahoney, & Reppert, 1987; Suedfeld & Bruno, 1990; Wagaman & Barabasz, 1990). The technique involves floating on a dense magnesium sulfate solution in a sound-attenuated, light-free tank. Unfortunately, the studies to date are limited. Only three studies presented data beyond anecdotal or case study reports (Lee & Hewitt, 1987; Suedfeld & Bruno, 1990; Wagaman & Barabasz, 1990).
