Floatation Therapy for pregnant women within the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, can offer a brilliant level of relaxation, and pain relief not found outside of the tank.
Floatation temporarily removes the strain of pregnancy weight and allows you to escape the added weight of pregnancy by floating in a weightless environment, thus taking the strain off the body and spine. It promotes excellent sleep, a lovely sense of well being, and can help with all the aches and pains normally associated with pregnancy.
Floating in a floatation tank can help the pregnant mom to be, literally float through the pregnancy with a level of calm and comfort. The high concentration of Epsom salt solution will decrease inflammation due to its high levels of magnesium, approximately 50% concentration, which is the most absorbable through the skin.
There is often comment about the ‘mirror effect’ of the baby floating in the womb of the mother and the mother floating in the womb of the tank. This incredible experience therefore enriches the spiritual/communal pleasure for the mother, deepening her connection with her baby.
In the third trimester of pregnancy, most moms are often most uncomfortable, experiencing sensations such as increased pressure on lungs and organs, with some experiencing trouble with their breathing and sleeping.
Imagine if you will, having a brief moment where you experience relieve from all the discomforts. In short, if we evolved from the sea it only makes sense to use floatation therapy to draw comfort, as we are 80% water after all.
