Floating in a saturated saline solution enables the human body to take a position which is unlike being in a bed, a waterbed, a bathtub or lying on any other surface. This particular position is characterized by the following:
. the spine is completely straight
. individual vertebrae are not twisted
. all muscle groups (in particular the muscles of the neck) can relax simultaneously
. all joints, intervertebral discs, ligaments and bones are relieved at the same time
Hereby acute, persistent and/or chronic tension is released and slipped discs, joint pains, sciatica, lumbago, pulled muscles or sprains improve. In particular chronic back pain, which has become the most widespread and common complaint can be relieved by floating in a saturated saline solution. 80% of the German population suffers from backache and relieving the spine by floating is a very simple yet extremely effective method to ease pain.
