Muscle Tension / Stiffness 

The stiffness and muscle tightness of fibromyalgia can be addressed by float tanks. A small 2012 study found that pain due to tightness of muscles was decreased significantly after just three sessions in the float tanks. The pain-relieving effects lasted for a significant period after the treatment, which also helped to alleviate mood and make the study participants more hopeful. This increased optimism translates into better opportunities for successful treatment all around.

Magic Magnesium

Fibromyalgia sufferers may have a magnesium deficiency that causes their pain. The magnesium solution in the float tanks can be absorbed through the skin much better than the (limited) amount of magnesium in your food is absorbed into the stomach, helping to alleviate that deficiency without taking additional supplements. This can be a benefit to patients who have difficulty taking pills or who simply don’t want to take anything else, as well as being a more direct and effective delivery method

Floating decreases both pressure and inflammation

Pressure = Pain 

The weightless environment of our flotation therapy pools coupled with the inflammation reduction properties of our incredibly concentrated Epsom salt solution can make a powerful and significant impact in the reduction of the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis.

Many people who suffer from arthritis find relief at Float SNJ, some of them for the time spent in the float tank, some of them for a couple of days, and some a couple of weeks.  What we do know is that repeated floating almost always makes a dent in the pain, increasing the quality of life our clients.

There have been some limited studies conducted that provide clinical backing to the first hand experiential data we are collecting every day.

The Relief of pressure

In the second and third trimesters, floating can provide an environment which offers relief from the wonderful pressures, pains, and additional weight that pregnancy brings.  Imagine all the pressure relieved from your joints (especially the hips).  We request your float be cleared by your physician.  Pregnant women love floating so much that we've created a special FLOAT PREGNANCY PACKAGE!!



Mother floating weightlessly while baby floats weightlessly in a weightlessly floating mother.  Epsom Salts reduce swelling and inflammation body wide, relieving more pressure than weightlessness alone while correcting any magnesium deficiency, an essential mineral always, but especially while building a new human.  The calm relaxed state of the mother induces calm and relaxed states in your baby, which is a better state for everyone!



Floating For Concussive Injury

It is important to provide rest to any body part that sustains physical injury, including your brain.  The Navy Seals use float tanks to speed recovery and rehabilitation for it's service members injured in combat.

During floatation therapy, the brain is relieved of external stimulation. The lack of outside sensory “noise” is especially beneficial for healing concussions, as it allows the brain to rest.

Floating creates weightlessness and pressure relief in the body as well as reducing inflammation and aiding circulation creating a space for the body to accelerate healing.
