If you suffer from chronic pain, you may have considered trying a form of natural pain relief. Floatation therapy is an increasingly popular option for those looking to reduce their pain without relying on pharmaceuticals.

What is Floatation Therapy?

Floatation therapy, also known as Reduced Environmental Stimulus Therapy- Rest Therapy, involves lying in a pod filled with water saturated with Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salt). While floating your body is completely supported by the water. The water is heated to skin temperature and after a few minutes your body and the water adjust to the same temperature and the sensory receptors in your skin temporarily shut down, You have the option of eliminating light and sound while you float meaning the stimulus for your brain is greatly reduced. 

How does Flotation Therapy Reduce Pain?

Floatation therapy has been gaining attention for its ability to reduce physical and mental pain, both acute and chronic. The use of Magnesium Sulphate helps to reduce inflammation, which can provide relief from physical pain. The natural buoyancy of the water eliminates the impacts of gravity and all pressure on the body, allowing for complete relaxation. By eliminating external stimuli and providing a relaxing environment, it can reduce stress and anxiety, leading to a calmer state of mind.

The combination of physical and mental relaxation can be beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain, as it can help to reduce stress and tension, which can worsen pain. Another great benefit of floatation therapy is its ability to improve circulation. Magnesium lowers blood pressure and increases circulation,  which can help to flush out toxins and promote healing. 

Improved circulation can help to reduce swelling and inflammation, providing further relief from physical pain. Floatation therapy can be a great option for those looking for natural pain relief. Floatation therapy can also provide relief from mental pain.

If youre looking for a natural way to reduce your chronic pain, floatation therapy may be worth considering.
