026: Conference Talk – Tom Fine

Thomas H Fine is one of the biggest names in the research of REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy). He established, alongside John Turner, the Floatation REST research program at the University of Toledo College of Medicine (formerly the Medical College of Ohio), where he now is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry.

Over a twenty year period, Tom and John published numerous papers and edited several books regarding the physical and mental results of floatation therapy, focusing on psychophysiological and endocrine changes associated with repeated use of a Floatation Tank, and the effects of floating on various stress related disorders (most notably his research on cortisol level reduction in the floatation environment).
