This type of therapy is incredibly relaxing, as the receiver is supported in the water in graceful, fluid movements. The client, when completely in trust, tends to surrender more than on a table so that the body may be moved in ways beyond the imitations that fear would normally impose. Muscle guarding is reduced, not having any way to know what is coming up, and as a result, a floating session can sometimes produce greater results than a regular physiotherapy session. Aquafloating has a profound effect on the neuromuscular system, decreasing muscle tension and increasing range of motion. The support of the water provides relief from compression in the joints. While many use it for relief from stress, it also treats people who suffer from brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia, arthritis, spinal cord injuries or insomnia.
