Looking for pain relief for fibromyalgia or other chronic pain issues? Float Therapy provides relief from physical pain as well as the stress, insomnia, headaches, and fatigue that can result from suffering from chronic pain. In a 2011 study by the Flotation Therapy Research Group, 23 fibromyalgia patients reported a significant temporary reduction in pain, muscle tension, stress, anxiety and sadness, as well as significant increases in relaxation, sleep quality, energy levels, feelings of well-being, and ease of movement.  A Graphic Summary of the Floatation Therapy Research Group Study 

IMMEDIATE AND CONTINUED PHYSICAL PAIN RELIEF Flotation therapy effortlessly suspends you in a gravity free environment and removes the stress from all of your joints and muscles.  This allows them to relax and decompress and  promotes a deep level of relaxation, which prompts the body to naturally heal itself from the inside out. The float pod contains 900 pounds of epsom salt, which contains magnesium. This essential mineral is natural anti-inflammatory essential mineral that is good for joint repair and muscle relaxation. REDUCED STRESS AND ANXIETY Floating is a proven method for stress relief and anxiety.  Fibromyalgia research has shown that stress can aggravate the physical symptoms of the disease.  In the study noted above, patients reported, on average, a 30% drop in stress levels after each float session.  Floating has also been proven to reduce the production of the stress hormone, cortisol. IMPROVED SLEEP The deep relaxation of floating often mimics stages of sleep. This functions to restore sleep deprivation and to assist your  brain in the same way as a restful sleep with both REM and non-REM stage sleep. An hour of deep relaxation in the float tank is the equivalent of 4 hours of sleep. HEADACHE RELIEF Floating can provide relief for tension headaches and migraines as your muscles relax and your stress levels decrease.  The high levels of magnesium in the water can also help since some research suggests that magnesium is essential in treating migraines.
