Maintaining pristine cleanliness is our top priority at Urban Float. We employ a rigorous cleaning process after each float session to ensure a hygienic and safe environment for every client. Our water undergoes a multi-stage purification process, including ultraviolet filtration, chemical treatment, and 10-micron filtration, ensuring its purity between each use.
Urban Float provides everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable float experience. We supply towels, shampoo, body wash, and earplugs for your convenience. If you wear contact lenses, please bring a case for storing them during your float.
While floating may take some getting used to for first-timers, most people find it to be a profoundly relaxing experience. The zero-gravity environment and the absence of external stimuli allow you to fully immerse yourself in a state of deep relaxation and tranquility.
No special preparation is required for your float session. However, we recommend avoiding caffeine consumption for 90 minutes before your float to minimize its stimulating effects. Additionally, avoid shaving or waxing a few days before your float to prevent skin irritation from the saltwater.
If you have recently dyed your hair, please wait at least two weeks before your float session. For red or black hair dye, you will need to wear a tight-fitting swimming cap during your float. If you have brightly colored hair (pink, blue, red, green, etc.), please contact Urban Float to inquire about your eligibility for floating.
While floating is generally safe for most people, we recommend consulting with your doctor if you have any underlying medical conditions. Many doctors recommend floating as a complementary treatment for various ailments, including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, insomnia, and skin conditions.
Float therapy and sensory deprivation are often used interchangeably, but there is a subtle distinction. Float therapy specifically refers to floating in a water-filled tank saturated with Epsom salt, while sensory deprivation encompasses a broader range of techniques that aim to reduce external stimuli and promote relaxation.
While float therapy is generally considered safe for pregnant women, it is always advisable to consult with your doctor before embarking on any new wellness activity. Float tanks provide a safe and supportive environment, and the Epsom salt has been shown to be beneficial for skin health and relaxation during pregnancy.
To maximize the benefits of sensory deprivation, it is best to avoid bringing any electronic devices into the float tank. The presence of electronic devices can stimulate the mind and disrupt the state of deep relaxation that float therapy aims to achieve.
To extend the relaxation and stress reduction benefits of float therapy, consider incorporating calming activities into your post-float routine. Try practicing mindfulness meditation, gentle stretching, or listening to soothing music to maintain a sense of tranquility.
