FLOATATION THERAPY FOR FIBROMYALGIA PAIN RELIEF

Image
WHAT IS FIBROMYALGIA Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event. Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression. While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.

People use the floatation tank to turn off the noise from primary senses (visual, auditory & kinesthetic) and accelerate the transition from beta brain waves (normal state) to alpha (learning state) and ultimately theta (dream state). The process is similar to meditation, but a lot faster. Way faster and easier. It is like forced meditation without the pains of sitting up right and trying to detune the world around you.
The goal with both meditation and floatation is to reach the theta state. This is a powerful state where you can consciously listen to your subconscious mind. Usually through a series of what appears to be auditory or visual hallucinations. Monks train years to do this through meditation while staying consciously awake. Your body does this naturally every night but you switch off, fall asleep. Recall those auditory or visual flashes you get before you off switch kicks in and you fall asleep. That’s a glimpse into theta state. In an isolation tank you are consciously…

FLOATATION THERAPY FOR NECK AND BACK PAIN

Floatation therapy has achieved remarkable success in easing chronic pains such as neck and back pain, and helps with correcting spinal misalignment issues in a regular treatment program.

Statistics show that chronic back pain is next to heart disease. It is estimated that 70–90% of people will suffer from lower back pain in some form at some point in their lives. Origination and individual perception of pain are related to the degree of relaxation in the muscles and to the general degree of stress in the nervous system. The physical relaxation produced by the sensory deprivation tank makes it an extremely beneficial healing environment, especially for those with injuries or chronic pain. Since the effects and stresses of gravity are lessened, the body is able to more efficiently allocate its resources towards maintenance and healing.This alleviation in conjunction with other therapies like massage, yoga and other exercise can lead to prolonged periods of respite from pain.
