For my birthday back in February, I asked for a gift certificate to True Rest, a float spa. Â I’m always up for trying new wellness activities and was intrigued when I heard about it. Â It’s taken me until today to use it, but today was the day! Â I have been battling lower back pain since last Fall on and off and this claims pain relief, so I was in.
Float spas are “pods” that are big enough for a person to fit inside and you float on the water. Â You float effortlessly because there is 1,400 lbs. of epsom salt poured into the water which creates a 0 gravity environment. Â Sounds nice, right? Â I think had I been able to fully relax, and get over the overpowering saltiness of the water, it would have been good. Â The salt kept getting in my eyes every time I was relaxed and I’d have to get up, spray water in them, and dry them off. Â This was a cycle for awhile. Â I have a problem with just laying and relaxing (I personally think most people do), so I also got a little bored. Â An employee told me that happens to everyone that first time though. Â I am glad that I tried it, but I think I prefer the old-fashioned massage or acupuncture:)
I’m glad that I tried it and can now cross that off my list. Â Oh yeah, and it was located next to AJ’s Fine Foods, which is my favorite mecca for specialty beverages and tea, so I picked up a Jone’s pomegranate soda with zero calories! Â This brand has more of a natural approach in creating their sodas, but I still wouldn’t drink them everyday. Â Off to pick up my honey from work:)
