Chronic pain and floating

With floating , you get an alternative pain treatment that can relieve your chronic pain such as arthritis, fibromyalgia as well as back and neck pain. Physical and chronic pain lowers the quality of life, and we are generally in today’s Denmark a society that is characterized by a lot of physical pain.

All Danes experience physical pain sooner or later, whether it is chronic or not. In fact, more than 700,000 Danes suffer from arthritis, which makes everyday life more difficult for most people. At the same time, we experience greater inactivity and poor posture, which makes us suffer more and more from back and neck problems.

Want to know more about how floating can be an effective tool against physical and chronic pain? So read on in this blog post, where we will among other things get into floating as an alternative pain treatment, and how you can get your chronic pain in i.a. back, neck, etc. treated at Float Studio .

Floating as an alternative pain treatment

By removing the load from the force of gravity on muscles and joints, the float tank creates a special free space, which means that joints and muscles do not have to work to keep the body weight or withstand the constant pressure we have on our body. The saline environment creates, unlike anywhere else on earth, relief and gives exposed areas a break where the pain can be relieved. Because muscles and joints are relieved in the hot water, the blood vessels can dilate, thus increasing blood flow so that chemicals and waste products can be cleaned out, which has a healing effect.

At the same time as the body gets a break, the brain also releases endorphins, which is the body’s own painkiller. You will thus naturally be less affected by pain after your treatment with us. The endorphins are released because the sensory input is minimal and the brain switches to theta waves, which are usually only achieved just before you fall asleep or when you are in deep meditation. The salty water in the float pod, which is saturated with the mineral epsom salt, also called magnesium sulfate, also has many positive benefits for your body. The mineral is one of the most important we have in the body, and affects i.a. the metabolic process, including hundreds of different enzymes. In addition, the mineral reduces migraines and plays an important role in the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles and heart, which cause them to contract.

Almost all Danes have at one time or another experienced back pain. The back pain can occur because you have been sitting incorrectly for too long, moving in an inappropriate way, or if you have slept incorrectly. According to the report Sygdomsbyrden in Denmark , 888,000 suffer from back pain, and approx. 20% experience daily pain in the lower back. The same report also shows that 550,000 suffer from neck pain daily.

People who suffer from chronic pain and use regular floating tell about one benefit in particular that has helped them with their pain in everyday life. Several report that they have become much better at living with their chronic and physical pain after they have started to float. The reason for this is that they are more aware of the pain and they know how to better abstract from it by shifting their focus. This is possible due to the theta stage, which we mentioned earlier. This is where you achieve higher self-insight and body awareness.

Floating combines all these benefits in one hour of unique and relaxing treatment, which differentiates itself from other forms of treatment by helping you to a higher quality of life. We hope you’ve been inspired by our blog post and have learned more about how floating can help you if you suffer from everyday pain.
