FLOATING FOR ARTHRITIS
What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is a way to refer to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 types of arthritis. Some kinds are caused by inflammation (rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis). Osteoarthritis is the most common type and is caused when the cartilage wears away and bone rubs against bone.
Regardless of the type, arthritis almost always includes pain, swelling, and stiffness. Symptoms can become chronic and severely impact a person's quality of life.
How Can Floating Treat Arthritis?
Floatation therapy can provide much-needed relief from arthritis pain, as well as enhance the positive effects of other pain management strategies. Although floating isn’t a cure, but it can make life better for individuals with arthritis. The float tank can be considered a perfect combination of two of the best-known natural treatments for joint stiffness... heat and Epsom salts!
Weightlessness of Floating
Floating is completely free of pressure and gives you the experience of weightlessness. The float pod is filled with a high concentration of Epsom salt and water heated to the exact temperature of the skin. In the tank, your body feels entirely weightless, and you float effortlessly. Your muscles can relax, and your joints will not experience the same kind of pressure that may cause pain and discomfort a typical day. This can be a tremendous relief.
Meditation, Arthritis, & Float Therapy
Meditation can help individuals cope with chronic pain associated with arthritis. It doesn't make the pain disappear but it can help prepare the mind for dealing with pain and the stress that comes with it. Floatation therapy can help prepare you to learn how to meditate. It does not come easy for some. The float tank helps to completely remove you from distraction and it immerses you in peace and quiet. This can be very helpful for newcomers to meditation.
