Chronic Pain Relief

Pain Relief

Written by Anton 09.07.2016

We know that chronic pain has both mental and physical ascents, effecting out mind and body. Floatation therapy’s effects on both makes it a great help for chronic pain.

Major studies found Floatation’s effectiveness for easing physical aspects of pain and chronic pain, such as muscle tension but also supports mental strength to deal with pain. People suffering from arthritis, fibromyalgia, headaches, back and neck pain and sore muscles report improvement of mental health and how much they were bothered by pain during the treatment.

“All the respondents receiving different pain treatments such as physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, surgery or pain injections reported more short-term and long term pain relief from floatation than from these treatments.”

“Floating helps with pain by stopping the stress-pain cycle. Normally when people feel pain, it involves a stress response, but when in relaxation state in the float tank, sufferers are able to feel pain without the stress response. Over time this can reset the associations of pain and stress. “

– Flotation REST in Applied Psychophysiology, Thomas H. Fine, M.A. and Roderick Borrie, Ph.D.
