As a team member of True REST, I especially have no reason to miss my weekly float. But, still there come times where I realize its been several weeks since I entered into the salt-filled oasis of a Float Pod. Its disconcerting, I’m fully aware of how much I love to float—and not just for the experience itself, but for the effects it has on me in the week to follow—mentally, physically and emotionally. I won
…its hard to believe, until you come float for yourself! One of the most profound benefits of flotation is pain relief—and a noted decrease in healing time. Many of our clients are those who are, not only stressed, but may also be in constant pain. As many are seeking a natural alternative, one that actually impacts pain at the root, flotation therapy is a powerful option which is gaining speed and populari
If you’ve floated at True REST Tempe you’ve likely seen it—sitting there in the middle of our relaxing Oasis room, looking simple enough. But, beyond the cover of our Guest Float Journal lie some of the most beautiful, poetic, honest and inspiring passages we’ve ever seen. Here are just a taste of the awesome entries tucked away in our True REST Visitors Journal, Vol I. A means, for urine or e
Like many of us, when my life feels its most full and stressful my wellbeing habits tend to be the first thing to slide. Yoga, eating well—and Floating are all apt to fade from my daily rotation. The irony, of course, is that when life feels as such, this is when I need these habits and wellness routines most. I begin to look at those feel-good habits—which are so easy to take for granted (until you stop dong t

True REST is excited to announce the much anticipated opening of our Scottsdale, AZ location—on October 8th! Scottsdale holds a special place in True REST history as it is where our first location originated in 2010, before Nick and Holly Janicki moved the business to Tempe, AZ. Almost done—the True REST Scottsdale store front at 70th St and Shea.   As flotation and its benefits become more well known,
Most of us are pretty dang busy—we talk about it all the time! Inevitably living full-speed ahead eventually begins to feel tiring and draining. This low energy isn’t a failure, it’s the natural way of things: we ebb and we flow, we pour out and then find ourselves in need of filling up. Life moves in cycles, just like the hands of a clock as they circle us through the day. Coffee and energy drinks can gi
Photo Credit: Steven Pisano on Flickr I floated again yesterday, this time for an hour. One reason I love to float is that I get to lose my pain. Not only for the length of the float, but for days after. As you get older, one of the things you notice is that things start to hurt. The hurt can be nothing big, just a series of small aches and pains. It’s most noticeable when you first get up in the morning, or the

If you’re not using them already, consider implementing the following “pro-tips” into your float routine.   1.
