REST Assured: Our High Water Standards.

By: | Tags:

At True REST we pride ourselves on our high water standards. Each of our Float Pods® use state of the art methods of purification which keep all of our Pods’ water squeaky clean for each and every guest. The cleanliness of the water in a Float Pod is a common concern—and an entirely valid one! What tools do we use to provide pristine water?

Float Therapy: Practice in the Art of Letting Go

By: | Tags:

There are many aspects of life in which our physical responses seems to transform us in more subtle ways. Our actions can set the stage for different sets of emotions and mental states. When I clean my house, it seems I have also cleared my mind. After I endure a more challenging yoga class, it feels I can better endure the challenges in my daily life. When I float it’s no different—as I physically let go in my session, I experience a sense of having “let go” of so much […]

The impacts floating has on your brain are numerous, which is why we’ve chosen to make a several-part series to share with you these benefits in greater detail! Today’s post will focus on the therapeutic effect that floatation therapy has on your brain waves. Throughout our normal waking state our brains are typically producing what are called Beta waves. These brain waves are fast and productive—yet are very active, and far from relaxing. When we do start to take it easy—even closing our eyes for just a few moments—we start […]

The bustling world we live in can tend to align with the belief that relaxing is a luxury—something a bit selfish and wasteful—perhaps only to be had on a vacation. Because of this societal idea, it may feel foreign to us to begin choosing to dedicate time for true relaxation for ourselves. What a great paradigm it will […]

Meditation at True REST, a balance

By: | Tags:

We just recently began offering the Falun Dafa Meditation and QiGong classes at True REST. These are always free to learn.

Feeling at peace with yourself and your surroundings can be difficult in the hectic world we live in and I am pleased we can now offer this wonderful practice at the Spa. On a side note I did a 1 hour meditation last […]
