BENEFITS OF FLOATING

SALT

Epsom Salts are great for your skin, hair, nails, and act as an exfoliate. They aid in joint pain, ease stress, and naturally relax the body. Magnesium (commonly missing from our diets) is absorbed through the skin, while Sulfate eliminates toxins and heavy metals, naturally detoxing the body.

WEIGHTLESSNESS

Welcome to floating, which can provide up to 100% pain relief. The spine naturally elongates and straightens, and the body undergoes the same regeneration process that transpires during sleep. Lactic acid is drained from the muscles, reducing soreness and recovery time.

MEDITATION

Taking an hour of alone time (meditation), will decrease the production of cortisone, a stress hormone, leaving us feeling refreshed and serene after the float. The brain enters an elusive theta brain-wave state, associated with deep sleep and dreaming.

MORE THAN JUST PROFOUND RELAXATION

The near-weightless environment of floating allows for the muscles and joints of the body to relax, increasing blood flow and helping to more quickly repair muscle tissues and heal the body.

LESS PAIN, BETTER IMMUNITY, FASTER RECOVERY

Floating gives your immune system the opportunity to shift into a higher gear and our bodies physically rest and recover more quickly in a floatation tank, up to four times faster, in fact. This means that you can train yourself harder and reap the benefits of slower recovery times with the use of a float tank.

LOW GRAVITY, TOTALLY SILENT AND PITCH BLACK

The lack of external stimuli is extremely rare in modern society. Floating offers and unparalleled psychological benefit of a feeling of inner peace, and is a perfect complement to many alternative wellness regimens.

A DREAMLIKE STATE OF MIND IN JUST ONE HOUR

Sensory deprivation allows the mind to enter into the theta state supporting an increase in feelings of creativity, improved sleep patterns and incredible feelings of euphoria and mental relaxation.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR WILMINGTON

  • This is a very relaxing and beneficial experience that I now try to do regularly as it really helps with anxiety, inflammation, and just calming my racing brain. I find the effects last for about a week and half. The first time I went, about halfway through I had half dozed off and woke laughing due to being so chilled out with a quiet brain (which is hard for me sometimes and kind of rare). It was great. Also, the staff is super nice and helpful, and the facilities are very clean and soothing. If you have trouble relaxing and quieting your thoughts at first, a body scan meditation really helps. I have only floated in silence with no lights, but this helps me in the dark and silent floats. The only drawback is that there aren't handicap bars to grip onto when getting in and out of the pod. I am sometimes not very sure footed due to an old foot injury, and one would really help - especially when getting out of the pod when I'm already a little disoriented. I could see how this could cause difficulty for people with more serious mobility issues who could benefit from floating if it were a little more handicap accessible. Still, I have nothing but love for here, and I always enjoy the oxygen bar and reading others' experiences and drawings in the guestbook afterward! ❤

    It was the best material gift I've been given in years. A colleague gave it to me as a gift, and I was overwhelmed.It was a clean and uber calming environment Justin was the staff member that ushered me through the process. He was equally calming and informative. It was the best form of physical, mental, and spiritual therapy I've ever experienced. I can't recommend it enough. It's such a shame that it's a luxury. I think this type of therapy could restore and preserve sanity for the masses. I am told that it may soon be covered by insurance. Hurray for this healing vibe in our midst. You owe it to yourself to try it.

    Excellent facilities, friendly staff, phenomenal environment great equipment. But most importantly the experience is insanely epic. If you haven't floated you need to schedule a time. Absolutely out of this world. Wrap up your float with a Tea or H²O and relax by the oxygen bar...OH YES.

    Sent my husband for a trial float. He enjoyed it, said it was "unique". He wants to go again to see if he reaches the point he did this time st the end where he was totally relaxed.

    So relaxing and such a peaceful environment from the moment you walk in the door. Everyone is so kind and helpful, and the equipment is high-grade. If you haven’t tried out a float tank, this is the place to give it a shot. They don’t rush you in/out and work hard to ensure a positive experience.

    I had an incredible experience. I meditate frequently and this is the same feeling. The only difference is it doesn't make your back hurt as much and you achieve a relaxed state much more quickly. To get the most out of it, you need to close the pod, turn off the music, and turn off the lights. Breath, do a body scan, observe your thoughts without judgment.

    One of my favorite places to be. The aesthetic is everything and the benefits of floating are worth doing your research over. The science is fascinating but the feeling is indescribable. Never mind the employees. They are always friendly and take the time to make sure your experience is top notch.

    As an employee in the hospitality business and having three children I believe float therapy is very needed! I am constantly on the phone or internet and having interactions. It's great to stop and breathe at TrueREST! I love it there and I recommend floating at least once a month if not weekly to be honest!

    Full disclosure: Former employee here. Before I even started working at True Rest, I was vaguely aware of floatation therapy, thanks to my mother's intrigue with holistic treatments and natural care. After hearing from an acquaintance that a spa had opened in ILM, I decided to give it a shot. After my first float, I was hooked...so much so that I applied to work there because, you know, float perks. The owners are incredibly down to earth, genuine people who value their customers. The employees that I worked with were passionate about the benefits of floating and well-informed. The spa is meticulously cleaned morning and night (man, the muscles I had...) and the array of clients alone speaks volumes about not only the spa, but floatation therapy in and of itself. Doctors and surgeons, physical therapists, reiki healers, pain management consultants, athletes, and massage therapists made up (and I would imagine still do) a large portion of regular floaters. When such a wide variety of people from the healing field converge in one spot, there's definitely something worth checking out. Floating isn't for everybody, but you should try it at least once, and if you do, visit True Rest in Wilmington.

    Relaxed to a level i have not experienced in years. To the level my back popped releasing years of stored stress. It was truly and amazing experience for me. Having gotten into yoga five or six years ago u believed helped me take full advantage faster since i was able to force myslef to come back to focus on my breathing. 20 minutes into the session, my level of processing senses significantly hieghtened. By 40 minutes i had to concentrate on breathing which had become shallow, then when I intentionally made a deep breath, by back and neck popped releasing a huge pent-up stress. That alone was worth the session! Truly amazing. Looking forward to my next. As the video describes the stress and tension is a culmination of years and will take time/sessions to break-down

    I love true rest! Every time I go I come out feeling relaxed and refreshed. My back and neck pop and crack every time I'm in a float pod. It's better than going to a chiropractor! Great customer service! Great experience! Great business!

    A beautiful, relaxing experience from start to finish. Friendly, welcoming staff invite you into a small oasis of tranquility. If you are a meditator, this will give you a depth of quiet harmony it is hard to find elsewhere. After each visit, I can feel the calm inside me for days. Very highly recommended.

    The True REST Floatation experience in Wilmington was my first spa experience to date, and I can’t see it being topped anywhere else. It’s a truly amazing, one-of-a-kind experience that connects your mind, body, and spirit as one to relief any (if not all) of your life stressors! It relieved my physical aches and pains from old sports injuries, it allowed me to manage my stress and anxiety during this hectic time in my life, and it allowed me to slip into that DEEP meditative state of mind that allowed me to tap into my spiritual energy. It’s basically hitting the “Reset” button! Incredible experience everyone needs a True REST Floatation Spa experience frequently! My family and I will be back without a doubt and we will be investing in this experience in the future!! Thank you True REST of Wilmington for a life-changing experience! My family and I couldn’t have had a better experience!

    I LOVED it from start to finish! It is so clean (immaculate), the atmosphere as soon as you enter is so relaxing and calming, & the staff is fabulous! I recommend floating to all BUT True REST Wilmington surpasses anywhere else I have ever floated in all categories (Also it may take more than one float to get the true experience - it's not as easy as you think to turn off the world and have True you time ... but so worth it when you get there)

    This is a great experience! Pleasant staff (who is very flexible and accommodating) and incredibly clean and private float rooms and pods! My last float was taken with the Philip Glass Koyaanisqatsi soundtrack. Felt like I was floating through the rings of Saturn! I solved all the world's problems during my float as well, so there's that also. Going back this week.

    From the minute we walked through the door until the moment we walked outside, our experience was above and beyond fantastic. The facility is clean, relaxing, and rejuvenating. I swear I haven't felt this good in years and it was only my first float. We walked out with a subscription because I'm already ready to go again. I haven't shut up about it and have told everyone I've spoken to to give floating a try. SO WORTH IT.

    I have been coming to True Rest in Wilmington, NC for about 5 months now. I have had lower back problems since I was in the military, and nothing has helped the pain in my back and my feet. After every float, I notice that for a few days I have no more back pain. It has been a life changer for me.

    Presentation of the facility is immaculate, warm and welcoming. Automatic relaxation overcame me as soon as I entered for my session. The tour guide definitely knew the product and very professional too. The rooms which the pods are in are very elegant and so calming. This is by far the BEST birthday gift my husband has ever surprised me with. I floated into so much relaxation, when I was awaken by the jet rumbles, I couldn’t believe it was over that quickly. After my float, I enjoyed sipping the tea they provided along with breathing in eucalyptus oxygen. Let’s just say, I am a member before I left my first session. All thanks to my hubby. Thank you True Rest for your wonderful, relaxing service!!! See ya real soon😁

    Truly relaxing experience, from entry to exit, the staff was very professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. This was my first visit and they made me feel comfortable right from the start. I could literally feel the stress and anxiety leaving my body during the float, by the end of my hour I felt completely refreshed mentally and physically. Just what I needed!! I will definitely be back and letting as many people know as I can about my experience.. Thank you!!

    I was nervous initially but ended up having an awesome experience. From scheduling the appointment, to the actual float and the care and attention afterwards. Everything was top notched. Place was clean, beautifully decorated, and had a lovely ambiance. I felt safe and comfortable. Janelle was so nice. I have told many people already about it and plan to return soon.
