Pain Management and Floatation
Float your pain away!
Pain is the reason behind about for a majority of physician visits. Not only does pain take a physical toll but it also interferes with patients' social, mental, emotional and spiritual sides.
A person struggling with pain may find it difficult to carry out daily activities and engage in social activities
Research continues to support the health benefits of Floatation therapy for pain management. Find out how it can help these five painful conditions.
1. Back / Spine/ Neck Pain Treatment
Discomfort along the back, spine and neck are three of the most distressing forms of chronic pain.
Floatation therapy is an effective way to treat pain along the back, spine and neck.
Floating in Epsom salt (Magnesium Sulfate) enables the human body to take a position which is unlike being in a bed or lying on any other surface. This particular position is characterized by the following:
The spine is completely straight and allowed to be lengthen
Individual vertebrae are not functional twisted
All muscle groups can relax simultaneously
The effects of gravity are removed and pressure on the back, inter-vertebral discs, neck, joints and muscles is relieved. The release of this pressure increases blood flow to areas in need of healing
Hereby acute and chronic tension is released and slipped discs, joint pains, sciatica, lumbago, pulled muscles or sprains improve by floating.
3. Post-Operation Pain Relief
Post-operative pain can complicate recovery, lengthen hospital stays and interfere with a patient’s return to activities. Float therapy can be effective for reducing pain intensity/severity and anxiety in patients undergoing surgical procedures. And helps them to improve their sleep.
4. Migraine Relief
Float therapy can decrease perceived pain, frequency, duration and intensity for those dealing with tension headaches. It is believed that extreme relaxation causes a shift in brainwaves that elicits the body’s natural healing capabilities
5. Arthritis Treatment
Floatation Therapy relaxes the patient and provides relief to tender “trigger points” located throughout the body.
Epsom salt bath benefits include relief from sore muscles, pain and inflammation in joints, including symptoms of arthritis. An Epsom salt bath in a float tank takes this relief to the next level. Being weightless environment reduces the lactic acid levels in your blood increase the blood flow, thus easing pain and inflammation. Also, the deep relaxation causes the body to release endorphins — the body’s all-natural “pain killers.” Thus significantly impacting some rheumatoid arthritis patient’s ability to control the mobility of their limbs.

“Floating is a potent unloading and regenerating tool that I have, and I haven’t met a person who didn’t massively benefit from getting the nervous system to chill out and having all of the body’s joints open up for a bit. I love it”
