Float Pod Technologies’ The Float Pod is a recovery tool that is designed to enable users to experience the feeling of zero gravity and simply float, bringing benefits such as relaxation, pain relief, and improved sleep.

Within the float pod are 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt dissolved in 10 inches of skin-temperature water. The water’s high salt content allows users to float on the surface of the water and reduce their sensory input, creating a deeply relaxing environment, notes a media release from Float Pod Technologies.

World Series Champions The Chicago Cubs recently added a Float Pod to its training facility.

According to the release, three-time All Star and Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo tells ESPN that he floats on his day off: “You really just float. It feels really weird at first. It’s good for your body. When you get up, it’s crazy. Your body is such dead weight.”

“It powers down your nervous system,” Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer adds in the ESPN article. “Sort of resets things. Incredible value downshifting your entire nervous system. All your senses. The value is tremendous.”
