Sleep Precious Sleep

One thing about the fall is how we look forward to getting better sleep. The air is cooler, it gets dark earlier and nothing beats getting in under the covers for a good nights rest.

Do you know what else aids sleep? Floating- here’s why:

Dr. Michael Breus, commonly known as The Sleep Doctor, is a huge proponent of Float Therapy for better sleep and is a contributor to the Sleep Program at True REST!

Dr. Breus discusses how floating improves sleep:

Evidence dating back decades demonstrates that float therapy can be effective in treating sleep problems, including insomnia. For example, a study from 1989 found that a series of four 2-hour floatation sessions over a 2-week period led to improvements in symptoms of insomnia.

Participants who received float therapy experienced reductions in their sleep latency—in plain terms, that means they were able to fall asleep more quickly. The improvements to sleep lasted for up to 12 weeks after the float session, indicating that floating as a sleep therapy can have lasting effects beyond the short term.

“Overall, the research indicates that floatation therapy can be a very powerful tool for stimulating the body’s relaxation response. Like meditation and yoga, floatation is another mind-body therapy that needs to be given serious consideration and attention as a tool to address stress.”

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.”
