True REST Float Spa locations opened their doors on November 11, 2019 with the goal to completely book every pod full of veterans in honor of Veterans Day. Thanks to the overwhelming community support, about 170 pods were open to Veteran Floats on 11/11 across the thirty-two True REST Float Spas in the country, allowing for 1352 Veteran floats.
Leading up to Veterans Day, True REST held their One for One Challenge in which True REST donated a float to a veteran for every float gift card purchased. Gift cards were able to be purchased in any of the spas and online.
Floating has many benefits for clients of all professions. Research is currently being developed regarding the effects of flotation therapy and how it specifically relates to military personnel. Military.com describes floating as “The New Frontier in Physical and Emotional Health”. Veteran, Travis Wilson, walks through his experience, “I have had 13 surgeries in my military career. A lot of joint pain, just overall body pain. Wasn’t sleeping. Wasn’t dreaming. I have done stem cell therapy for a TBI and even tried yoga.” Wilson explains, “At first floating wasn’t for me. I think I only lasted about 30 minutes. The sensory deprivation was just a bit much for my brain. But then, I was calmer after floating. Slept a little bit better. My body just felt better after floating.” See Travis’ full video here.
