Floatation can be a refuge for those suffering from painful disorders like fibromyalgia, arthritis, and chronic back pain. In the float pod, the body restores itself and pain is relieved or totally eliminated.
There are a combination of reasons why floatation therapy is so effective for stress. The absence of gravity removes pressure from the body. When lying supine on the supporting solution, the vertebrae have a chance to elongate and are free from impact. During this process, the body secretes endorphins and seratonins to increase the pleasure effect. Reserch has shown an immediate and thourough shift into the parasympathetic response in which the body commits its resources for healing and restoration. For those suffering from chronic pain, floatation delivers relief.
