As the country begins to reopen, we’re beginning to witness the realities of the physical and psychological toll the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on the nation. Months of social distancing, combined with daily news reports has had an undeniable impact on mental health, especially increasing stress and anxiety.
Whether stress is coming from worrying about the health of loved ones, financial uncertainty or from trying to balance work and home schooling, Americans are emerging from the pandemic in a more fragile mental state than ever before. So how can balance be restored? Finding solace in a float therapy session is great place to start.
Scientifically Proven Relief
True REST was founded to serve the community by providing relief from physical and mental ailments holistically through float therapy. The all-natural approach is scientifically proven to relieve a wide range of ailments including inflammation, sore muscles, arthritis, sleep disorders and stress.
Float effortlessly in an hourlong session in our highly sterilized, no-contact float pods that provide a sensory and gravity-free environment, restricting external sources of distraction for an extreme form of reduced environmental stimulus therapy, or REST. Each float pod is filled with 1,200 pounds of Epsom salts and 180 gallons of water that creates a 30% salt solution, enabling effortless floating. Epsom salts have established healing effects that treat inflammation of the joints and muscles and ease chronic pain for areas of the body like the neck and back. The high level of salt is great for the skin, hair and nails, acting as an exfoliant while also drawing out toxins and lactic acid to reduce stress and relax the body.
The float pod’s water is perfectly heated to body temperature and provides a weightless sensation, promoting psychological benefits of feeling inner peace. During flotation therapy, the brain enters the theta brain wave state, associated with deep sleep and dreaming. This allows a natural increase in dopamine and other neurotransmitters, which creates feelings of euphoria that aid in mental relaxation. An hour of zero gravity and zero distractions decreases the production of cortisol, a stress hormone, leaving members feeling refreshed, serene and with a profound sense of calmness.
