A common concern which arises before a first float relates to control—at True REST we’re proud to offer an experience which allows each client to control every aspect of their session, from music to lighting to choosing whether or not their Float Pod® lid is open or closed. But, in addition to these added options, flotation therapy itself already offers an experience in which we have much greater control than
Whether it’s your 1st float or your 1000th, little details can make a big positive difference in your session. If you’re not using them already, consider implementing the following “pro-tips” into your float routine.   1. Take a –Warm- Shower The water in our Float Pods is purposefully heated to match the outside of the temperature of your skin (~93.5 degrees). This temperature is chosen to allow for
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
Floating is a practice. As with any learned experience, it is tempting to take on an attitude of knowing what to expect as we return. But, floats are always shifting—and they are primarily an art of letting go. On days we arrive to float with this expectation of knowing what to expect, we may actually feel held back from our deepest experiences and levels of relaxation. Floating is described as “effortless”,

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 experienc

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
