Epsom Salts: Trans-dermal Magnesium Absorption

What is magnesium and what are some common symptoms of magnesium deficiency?
Besides being one of the elements on the periodic chart, Magnesium is a mineral that is crucial to the healthy function of our body playing a key role in over 300 different body functions. Magnesium can help with nerves, muscles, heart, hormones, bones and provides relief from stress, improves sleep and reduces pain.

Some studies suggest that over 75% of Americans are deficient in Magnesium while only 2% are diagnosed as such. This is mainly due to a lack of routine testing in this area coupled with lack of education around the symptoms of magnesium deficiency.

Trans-dermal Magnesium Absorption
Today, we’re more aware than ever that the substances we apply to the skin are absorbed into the bloodstream. That’s why some medications are delivered through a skin patch, and it’s also why we need to be careful about what products we apply to our face and body. Epsom Salt is Magnesium Sulfate and soaking in Epsom Salt rich waters has been shown to provide therapeutic benefits for hundreds of years.

At Revelation Massage our flotation pods have over 1,000 lbs of Epsom Salt within each one. This high saline level is created for two reasons: First the high buoyancy levels allow for you to experience zero gravity. Secondly, the choice of Magnesium Sulfate allows for a therapeutic trans-dermal absorption of magnesium therefore optimizing your health holistically.
