Flotation-REST for Chronic Pain, Stress, and Sleep

Study Description

Flotation-REST for Chronic Pain, Stress, and Sleep

This randomized crossover trial aims to examine the effects of Flotation-REST (Reduced, Environmental, Stimulation, Technique/Therapy) compared to laying in a dark room (with reduced environmental stimulation) for those with chronic musculoskeletal pain. This design will allow for comparisons between the two interventions on daily diary assessments of pain, stress, and sleep, both between groups and within individuals.
