True REST Float Spa locations opened their doors on November 11th, 2017 with the goal to completely book every pod full of veterans in honor of Veterans Day. Thanks to the overwhelming community support, over 800 free floats were provided to veterans across the twenty-two True REST Float Spas in the country.
Leading up to Veterans Day, True REST held their One for One Challenge in which True REST donated a float to a veteran for every float gift card purchased. Gift cards were able to be purchased in any of the spas and online.
Floating has many benefits for clients of all professions. Research is currently being developed regarding the effects of flotation therapy and how it specifically relates to military personnel. Military.com describes floating as “The New Frontier in Physical and Emotional Health”. Along with physical benefits of floating, Miltary.com also nods toward neuropsychologist Justin Feinstein, who opened the Float Clinic and Research Center at the Laureate Institute for Brain Research, the only float lab in the country. “Feinstein has used brain scans to show how floating mimics the effects of meditation – and medication – by shutting down the ‘fight or flight’ response that can trigger symptoms like nightmares and night sweats in PTSD sufferers.”
