Here are a few common comments or concerns we have heard in our spas…if you have an additional question, please leave it as a comment!   1. “I already do this in my bath”   Epsom Salt baths are awesome. But, they’re a far cry from float therapy. Even if you do add 1,000 lbs of Epsom Salts into your tub, there are other factors contributing to float therapy’s impact, including:   Weightlessn
It was a phenomenal first week for the latest True REST—now open in Powell, Ohio! The spa’s soft opening, which was May 10th—Mother’s Day, was a huge success. True REST Powell hit the ground running with appointments booked solid from open to close.

Flotation therapy has lots to offer: pain relief, deep relaxation, better sleep, time to ourselves…but these various benefits all stem from one core theme; one key offering: Freedom.

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.

…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
