Nashville, TN – Nationally known brand True REST is proud to announce the opening of its 24th location in Franklin, TN. This will be the first float spa to open in the Cool Springs area, bringing a premier wellness experience to the Nashville community.
True REST Cool Springs owner, Jamie Simmons, heard about floating in late January 2017, while celebrating his neighbor’s birthday over margaritas. His neighbor’s wife handed him a stack of papers full of information about floating and instructions about their first visit. After reading through the material Jamie was intrigued by the concept of floating. A week later he booked floats for his girlfriend and himself for Valentine’s Day. A few floats later and Jamie understood there was an opportunity to open a spa himself in his community. Due to his busy schedule and the lack of float spas in the area, he had only been able to float a handful of times and understood that many people felt the way he did. Fast forward a year and Jamie made the decision to open his own True REST. The idea of helping people “float” their aches and cares away in 10 inches of salt water was a powerful motivator. Also, being part of a family like True REST made the decision very simple.
Jamie hopes to bring many benefits of floating to the greater Nashville area, stating that his main priorities are to bring “REST and relief for pregnant women, healing for athletes and surgery patients. Helping those that suffer from headaches, stress, fibromyalgia, PTSD, sleep disorders and any other emotional or physical disorders. The opportunity to unwind, reset and experience True REST. An hour to escape their daily worries and aggravations.”
Flotation therapy (aka sensory deprivation) is a growing trend in healthcare, with devotees that include pro athletes, yogis, medical professionals, and, of course, military personnel. True REST offers hour-long sessions where patrons can relax in their own personal flotation suite, which includes a private shower and Float Pod. Each pod contains 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salts dissolved in 10 inches of skin-temperature water. Due to the high salt content, spa clients float effortlessly while their bodies and minds unwind.
True REST clientele has complete control over their floating experience; pods include personalized light and music selections, as well as the option to open or close the pod door at any time.
True REST was founded in 2009 by Nick and Holly Janicki in Tempe, Arizona and they then began franchising in 2014. With over thirty locations open across the country by the end of 2018, another twenty currently under development, and approximately 6,000 members brand wide, it was time to bring True REST flotation therapy to Nashville.
True REST Float Spa will open September 29th at 100 International Dr, Suite 106. A first time one-hour float session will cost $59, with packaged deals and membership specials also available. You can contact the spa at 615.979.5997 or reach the owners at [email protected]. Hours are 10am – 10pm Tuesday – Sunday; Mondays 4pm – 10pm.
