High salt water floatation tanks relax and reduce pain.

Medical News Today (scroll down to their link at the left of this blog to read the article) reports that high-salt floatation tanks benefit pain sufferers by relaxing and so reducing pain. The research carried out at Karlstad University in Sweden, confirms that sufferers report better sleep and reduced perception of pain. This is another great way of reinforcing the "it's ok"message and retraining the brain.

Medical News Today reports some great articles about pain management and research and is worth checking when you visit this blog.
