Get Blissed Out at True Rest Float Spa
For a completely out of body experience, consider treating your mind, body and soul to the tranquil experience of floating. Now open, True Rest Float Spa- Gilbert offers a way to repair and relax busy minds. Floating takes place in a giant egg-shaped pod with 10 inches of warm water set to body temperature and 1,200 pounds of Epsom salts. As the body defies gravity and floats in this womb-like atmosphere, the feel good hormones – dopamine, serotonin and melatonin - are released. The body will soak up the benefits of the magnesium sulfate, providing tremendous relief from stress, back pain, arthritis and more. This is a great therapy option for both athletes (healing is sped up through regular floating sessions) and artists (clarity and a clear mind is also an outcome). As you release yourself to the experience and disengage from your daily grind, floating will help you hit the ‘re-set’ button on life. Recently, both the New York Times and The Today Show featured this new spa treatment option and touted the benefits of this trending therapy. Floating is also known to detoxify the body and can help dermatological conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. At True Rest Float Spa, the experience is tailored – each guest can choose their light and music options, or completely unplug and turn all sensory elements off.
