Flotation REST involves floating on top of a pool of saltwater - 10 inches of water and 800 pounds of Epsom salt - in a specially designed Float Pod with minimal light and sound. Because of the high salt content of the water, which is heated to skin surface temperature, a person is able to float effortlessly. The Float Pods are completely safe and clients of True REST can customize their experience with music and a multitude of light colors for ambiance.

"True REST is a state of complete relaxation," said Janicki. "It's a great way to escape the stresses of everyday life."

Flotation REST has been associated with the following benefits:

Eliminates jet lag

Improves sleep

Quickens rehabilitation and recovery

Relieves pain

Boosts immunity

Improves circulation

Reduces blood pressure, pulse, heart rate and oxygen consumption

Sharpens mental clarity and alertness

 

"The float tank is not a hypothetical laboratory phenomenon, but a viable, proven technology," according to Dr. Henry Adams of the National Institute of Mental Health.

Studies have shown REST to be effective in treating various eating disorders, in decreasing heavy drinking, and in treating a variety of other behavioral and mental health disorders. A University of Arizona study examined chamber REST as a relapse prevention technique for substance abusers enrolled in traditional outpatient treatment programs. At the end of four years of follow-up, 43% remained continuously sober and drug-free. None of the control group did so for eight months of follow-up.

Treatment in the form of floating in huge tanks of saltwater, so-called "floating," is effective for chronic stress-related pain, according to a study at Karlstad University, Sweden. Patients treated with floating suffered from long-term health problems. Several had been diagnosed with "burnout." After a seven-week treatment period, 22% of the participants in the floating group were entirely pain-free, and 56 percent experienced a clear improvement, reported the International Journal of Stress Management.

True REST sessions are priced on either a single session, monthly, twice a month or weekly rates. Group rates are available upon request. Reservations are being accepted now, with pre-opening discounts. For more information, visit: www.truerest.com
