True REST® (Reduced Environmental Stimulus Therapy) is a zero-gravity environment that allows the mind and body to completely let go, relax, and reset. Using 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salts, the buoyancy of the water makes floating on water feel like floating on air. By eliminating the forces of gravity pulling on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, you can effortlessly relieve pain, relax, recover, and improve sleep in this unique state.
Flotation therapy (aka sensory deprivation) offers relief and benefits which are cumulative—they build on themselves with each subsequent session. We like to say “the more you float, the better it gets”, as floats themselves deepen beyond the first session. Though flotation is an “effortless” therapy, the body and mind actually learn how to relax into the float with each session.. Stress, tension and pain have formed over time and will take some time to experience the greatest relief—luckily, floating is a relaxing, fun,and effortless way to do so!

SLEEP – STRESS – PAIN
The intricate interplay of our body and mind has everything to do with living a healthy and happy life. Floating offers an all-natural approach which has been proven to help a wide scope of ailments and offer physical and mental well-being to its practitioners.
Floatation tanks have seen much success as an aid to those with insomnia or other sleep disorders. The sensory deprivation allows the brain a natural calm-down period, aiding those who have trouble entering this period naturally. Floating can even be used to alleviate feelings of “jet-lag” caused by changes in time zones or reset sleep schedules for those needing to do so to maintain a healthy level of sleep, something many alternative medicine regimens attempt to cultivate.
The lack of external stimuli is extremely rare in modern society. In the floatation environment, without the hustle and bustle of the world imposing itself, people experience a profound calmness of mind. This respite from the world allows for stress management, offers the psychological benefits of a feeling of inner peace, and is a perfect complement to many alternative well-ness regimens.
Floatation tanks and floatation therapy have seen success easing more chronic pains such as neck and back pain, and help with spinal misalignment issues. Float tanks have even been shown to ease the pain from such conditions as arthritis and fibromyalgia, conditions with few natural treatment options. This alleviation in conjunction with the healing of massage or the strengthening of yoga and other exercise can lead to prolonged periods of respite from pain.

The human brain is extraordinarily complex with our unconscious minds processing the equivalent of 11 million bits of information per second, versus our conscious brain only being able to handle 40 bits in that same time frame. Amazingly, when we are awake, our brain generates 12-25 watts of electricity – which is enough to power a small light bulb. With as much as we expect our brain to process every day, it’s imperative that we give it time to recharge.
