The New England Patriots in the USA introduced floatation therapy, or sensory-deprivation therapy, to their players back in 2014. They now have two tanks sitting in tiled rooms at their Gillette Stadium facilities, and Edelman has come around. An avid floater, the 30-year-old wideout popped in three or four times a week during the season. And he’s far from the only one in the Patriots locker room who believes in the benefits of floating.
Tom Brady is a proponent and reportedly keeps a float tank of his own at home to help him remain atop his game as he nears 40. Chris Hogan has become a regular in the tanks this year after hearing Edelman and Brady rave about them. Matthew Slater has made floating for about an hour part of his weekly routine, and Dont’a Hightower has become so fond of it that he recently purchased passes for his mother and sister to float back in his home state of Tennessee.
