Float Therapy is an Effective Athletic Recovery Tool

By: | Tags: , , , , ,

During the Olympics last summer, we were watching amazing physical feats of Olympians across every sport. Although these athletes make their athletic prowess look effortless they have spent years, some even decades, honing their bodies to be in the best possible condition for this worldwide competition. The process of training hard every day is essentially the act of breaking down your muscles and rebuilding them to be stronger, faster and more efficient. As you can imagine, this takes a huge physical toll on their bodies. Even though not everyone is […]

If you’ve ever watched Olympic athletes compete, you may be overwhelmed by their sheer athletic ability.

It’s overwhelming to know the work they put in to become the best. Olympic athletes need to be in peak physical and mental shape, including pre-and post-workout treatment.

Choose to Feel Great in 2016…

By: | Tags: , , , , ,

Here we are, at the end of January, 2016—if you’re like many of us, you may have made resolutions—maybe you’ve kept them, or maybe you’ve slipped up (what are you, human?!)   What does it mean to resolve, anyways? According to Webster, when we resolve we make a “firm determination” to do something. In other words, we make a real decision—we cut off other alternatives, and in doing so, truly choose.   The resolutions we ring in with the new year come in all shapes, colors and sizes—from working out, […]

As a team member of True REST, I especially have no reason to miss my weekly float.

I wonder why I so easily skip over spending time doing something I know I value–for […]

Floating Away Anxiety at True REST.

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

When I first began floating, I didn’t have any benefit in mind. I just wanted to experience for myself the “weird” sounding therapy—I wasn’t even aware of the range of offerings it might have for me. My anxiety and panic attacks were just a part of my reality that I had gotten used to—mild panics and mental breakdowns were just another part of the day. It would unfold as so: *queue situation I perceive as awkward*—my face flushes, heart pounds, breathing constricts, thoughts race—subsequent fight or flight unfolds (I usually […]

A Recipe for Feeling Great.

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

  True REST is The Science of Feeling Great—most of us could probably agree that “Great” is something we want to feel, but what does it mean—and how do floats take us there?   Consider that feeling great might not be about addition.  Entertain the idea that it may be a subtraction game. I find great comfort in that: “Phew, I don’t need to gain anything, just release what’s weighing me down. “   Floating, after all, doesn’t give you anything—rather, it allows you to take away—stimulus, gravity, tension, stress, […]
