Summer means stress relief! Sitting at the beach, swimming, and enjoying the warm weather all help to ease our stress.
Did you know the physiological process of relieving stress is known as the ‘relaxation response’ (RR)? The relaxation response is attainable at a state of deep relaxation and is the opposite of the “fight-or-flight” response. This is such an effective remedy to reduce stress symptoms.
One effective method to elicit RR is through relaxation in a flotation tank. During flotation-REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique) the individual lays in a horizontal floating posture immersed in highly concentrated salt water (magnesium sulphate) in a flotation tank. All incoming stimuli are reduced and the water is heated to skin temperature.
Flotation-REST has been scientifically investigated and is today considered a well-developed and scientifically proven method used to reduce stress, depression, anxiety, and to increase optimism and sleep quality. Significant pain reduction has also been reported after using flotation-REST technique.
Still not intrigued? Read this testimonial from one of our clients from a sister True REST Float Spa: “Ten years of chronic, constant pain and in one hour I finally got relief! Each time I’ve come back my pain levels are lower than the time previous and the relief lasts longer after each float. Every time I come out of the REST Pod my pain levels return to zero or near zero! WOW! Thank you True REST.”
