Fibromyalgia has been a hot topic for the past few years. In the not-so-distant past, a large opinion circulated declaring it didn’t exist. It does exist and it is life-altering. Fibromyalgia is associated with pain, muscle tension, anxiety and stress. Pain is amplified by the way the brain processes pain signals. While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, it is often recommended that exercise and stress-reduction measures are taken.
Fibromyalgia and Floating
In a study conducted by the Fibromyalgia Floatation Project, floating was found to reduce stress, pain, muscle tension, anxiety along with improving sleep, elevating mood and increasing the levels of magnesium within the body. At iSofloat, the float tanks have 10 inches of body-temperature water filled with Epsom salt. Epsom salt is basically magnesium, a mineral often deficient in those with fibromyalgia, and it allows for you to be especially buoyant in water. You float in the water without any visuals or sound, relieving pressure on joints and the skeletal system and providing relief from pain or discomfort. Fibromyalgia and floating could be the solution for living with less pain.
The benefits to float therapy are numerous. It decreases fatigue, normalizes blood pressure and heart rate, stimulates muscle growth and speeds recovery while inducing harmonious brain waves for full body relaxation. Fibromyalgia and floating seem to go hand in hand, for an overall restorative experience. At iSofloat, clients are leaving stellar reviews in relation to pain relief, relaxation and the overall comfortable atmosphere.
