We focused on the physiological effects of REST, its influence on well-being, and on performance. Twenty-seven studies published in 25 articles or book chapters were included in a meta-analysis.

In our laboratory we have been examining the psychophysiotagical effects of sensory restriction using flotation Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST). We hypothesized that this brief REST experience would be deeply relaxing, leading to a reduction of stress responding similar to that found with psychophysical relaxation pro.

Then, to determine if added environmental stimulation produced positive effects on students' productivity and activity, we asked what kind of stimulation was manipulated (e.g., visual, auditory) and what effects were recorded on behavior and academic outcomes.

Restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST) is offered as a useful, flexible tool that can facilitate change in addictive variables at each level of complexity, from habitual acts through attitudes to self-concept and spirituality. The nature of REST is discussed in terms of processes and effects.
