We’ve heard it before. The story goes something like, “I come once every few months and I always feel relaxed afterwards but during the float, I have such a hard time relaxing my body and quieting my mind”. Sound familiar to anyone? It doesn’t matter what it is that you choose to do, if you do it with consistency, you will start to notice improvements. This is one of the first things we tell clients who inquire about ways to find more physical relaxation and how to deepen their meditative […]

I remember the first time I got a migraine like it was yesterday. I was thirteen. My head felt like it was exploding, as if there was a hammer pounding the inside my skull and it was resisting cracking open. I lost my ability to see clearly and I became extremely nauseous. My sensitivity to sound and light had become truly unbearable and I just wanted to crawl into a little ball in a cave and go to sleep. When these migraines happened, it was so painful that I couldn’t […]

In the 7 years I’ve been regularly floating, I’ve had an incredibly vast spectrum of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual experiences while in the pod.

When I look back at the full range of the experiences I’ve had, there are a few, very specific floats that still stick out in my memory. They have that extra sprinkle of magic that we use in the phrase, the […]

How many of you have been in the middle of a float and found it nearly impossible to turn off the whirlwind of thoughts in your head? It’s a very common experience and I know I’m not the only one who has found myself lying there wondering, “Why can’t I turn this monkey mind off?” A racing mind can be frustrating and extremely distracting from the essence of why we come to float in the first place: to practice slowing down and relaxing into the moment. The mind is a […]

By now I’m guessing we probably don’t need to convince you that floating has some serious benefits to your overall health and well being. It’s been known to help reduce pain and inflammation, decrease stress and anxiety, along with a laundry list of other things like promoting inner peace, deepening your meditation practice and helping you achieve more rest and relaxation.

As a woman, one of the biggest life changing events that can happen to you is getting pregnant. It affects your physical, mental and emotional state unlike anything you’ve experienced before.

Here at True REST, we hope to help alleviate as much of these symptoms as possible, so […]

You probably know a Dad or two who could use a break. The ones that work hard taking care of just about everyone else but themselves. Sometimes, the beloved men in our life don’t carve out the time to prioritize themselves and their relaxation. A Float Spa is a perfect 1-hour getaway to a zero gravity, zero-distraction environment, helping him substantially reduce stress, relieve physical pain, and get better sleep.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that affects the muscles, joints, and soft tissue. It’s very painful and affects just about every aspect of daily living. Our clients with fibromyalgia state that they’ve often tried just about every therapy and alternative solution they’ve come across before finding floating. Some are reluctant to think that simply floating for one hour would have any impact on their symptoms at all; however, we’ve seen life-changing instances of pain relief and healing. To put it lightly, we’ve seen miracles happen in front of our eyes. […]

When I was 18, I had my first panic attack. I had experienced anxiety before but never anything that came close to a panic attack, let alone one that would completely take over my physical body. I’ll never forget the day when it happened—how my joints locked up, how I completely lost my vision and how I could feel my chest tightening so much that my heartbeat was pulsating up into my temples. This was something I never thought I’d ever have to experience in my life, but I did—and […]
