Before a new True REST Float Spa opens to the public, there’s a week of soft launch for working the kinks out and training the staff. This “friends and family” float time gives us valuable feedback on how we can improve from people who care enough to offer it. I floated last Friday as part of the soft launch of the new Scottsdale spa. For this visit, the team was doing a simulation of what the float ex
When I first began floating, I didn’t have any benefit in mind. I just wanted to experience for myself the “weird” sounding therapy—I wasn’t even aware of the range of offerings it might have for me. My anxiety and panic attacks were just a part of my reality that I had gotten used to—mild panics and mental breakdowns were just another part of the day.   It would unfold as so:   *queue situat
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
Flotation is unlike just about every other “activity” out there.  In fact, it’s really more of an “inactivity”—but as anyone who floats knows, this flavor of “doing nothing” offers far more than the phrase would imply. We hear the benefits and experiences—that extensive list that science continues to validate through their studies—we see the testomonials, and it beco

Beginning September 11th, 2015—and the 11th of each month going forward—all corporate locations and participating franchises (see a list of locations below this post) will be reserving 1 Pod Suite all day for Veterans to float—for free! We would like to thank our Powell, OH and Roseville, CA spas for inspirin
True REST is excited to announce the much anticipated opening of our Scottsdale, AZ location—on October 10th! 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. As flotation and its benefits become more well known, we are eager and excited to be able to return to where it all began for True RES
Medication seemed, for years, as the singular go-to for “healing” ailments of all kinds—often targeting the symptoms of our discomfort: numbing pain, masking anxiety and “knocking us out” at night. A large majority of our clients have been looking for health and wellness through preventative and natural, holistic means which address the root of pain or other dis-ease. Holistic therapies believe that well

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.
