Float therapy is effective in improving the life for people with fibromyalgia

Stress and anxiety relief

Floating in a float tank/sensory deprivation tank provides stress and pain relief, muscle relaxation, improved sleep and a boost of magnesium. Floating in a completely relaxed environment helps you to calm your body and mind and focus inward, which is an important factor to manage your emotional stress and anxiety. Your body enters into an extremely deep relaxed state where your body uses its natural healing powers to treat your pains and headaches. 

Pain relief and muscle relaxation

Floating increased blood flow to the soft tissues and muscles along with releasing endorphins (hormones that act as natural painkillers) from the brain. This helps to provide relief for different types of pains, aches in muscles and joints caused by fibromyalgia. An hour of floating/Epsom salt bath results in significant chronic pain relief and muscle relaxation. With the increased blood flow and increased theta waves from the brain, flotation enhances brain functionality and creativity.

Provides better sleep

Fibromyalgia patients suffer from improper sleep and also magnesium deficiency. Floating in a sensory deprivation tank in India assists in decreasing the release of stress hormones and achieving deep relaxation where you can refresh your mind. This promotes your sleep conditions by providing better sleep.

Supplements Magnesium

Epsom salt is nothing but magnesium sulfate. When you float in the dense Epsom salt solution, your body absorbs magnesium through the skin pores and supplements your magnesium levels. Fibromyalgia patients can see good results in reducing their pains and improving their overall physical, mental and emotional health.
