What is R.E.S.T.?
R.E.S.T. stands for restricted environmental stimulation technique. In the world of self-care, float therapy tanks are becoming increasingly popular as a means to decrease stress and renew our wellbeing. Within our float tanks, light and sound are restricted and the temperature is kept at a constant 94 degrees. This allows for a truly restricted stimulus environment to reap the full benefits this therapy has to offer. Float Magic in Twin Falls, Idaho will have 3 options of float tank environments; the pod, an open pool and an enclosed room.
Clinical research investigating Float R.E.S.T. has reported beneficial effects across a range of different stress and pain-related conditions, including PTSD, hypertension, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, chronic tension headaches, chronic muscle pain in the back, as well as neck and stress-related pain with burnout depression. It has been proven to help with sleep regulation as well. Float Magic in Twin Falls, Idaho will have Sauna, Massage, PBMT (Light Therapy), and Meditation classes to accompany our environment of healing.
Why Float Magic?
A large decrease in cortisol levels is shown post float compared to pre-float levels. Furthermore, the evidence published for R.E.S.T. shows it is a safe and effective relief for stress, anxiety disorders, PTSD and depression disorders.
Significant reductions in pain have been documented by research when measured pre and post float. Acute and Chronic pain alike show benefits from magnesium in the float environment.
For Muscle Recovery
Athletes use floatation primarily for two goals, recovery / healing from stress related injury and greater mental clarity for competitive focus.
