Dealing with Chronic Pain
Chronic pain and Fibromyalgia can completely control your life and your happiness, and the ability for flotation therapy to help to alleviate this pain has been well documented. In fact there is a website and project dedicated to the benefits of flotation on Fibromyalgia which you can find here (http://fibromyalgiaflotationproject.com/). There are many pieces of research that show the benefits on pain with a general conclusion that the lack of gravity allows the joints that are in pain to release the built up tension and ultimately begin the repair of source of the pain.
Chronic Pain can lead to many types of dependencies that are unhealthy including drug and alcohol dependencies which have further effects on the body’s ability to heal. Floating can relieve this pain in a natural non-intrusive way allowing for a better overall life experience.
Chronic pain can sometimes be caused by stress. The stress leads to tension and the tension leads to pain. There are Osteopaths, Massage Therapists, Chiropractors, Physicians and others that can help you address your tension and your stress. The benefit of using the float tank as a therapy to address your stress and tension induced chronic pain is that you will benefit from all of the other sources of relief from being in the tank. Your muscles will feel better, you release endorphins, and dopamine, your brain is able to relax and recover in a very profound way that is very difficult to duplicate outside of the tank. You will also reduce your chronic pain symptoms and discomfort, and it only takes one hour, as often as you want.
