How are the float tanks cleaned?

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.

How long does a salt room therapy session typically last?

Salt room therapy sessions typically last 45 minutes to an hour. This duration provides ample time to inhale the fine salt particles and experience the therapeutic benefits of halotherapy.

Comfortable and loose-fitting clothing is recommended for salt room therapy sessions to allow for unrestricted movement and breathing. Avoid wearing tight-fitting or restrictive garments that might hinder your comfort during the session.

Regular salt room therapy sessions can provide cumulative benefits for respiratory health, skin conditions, and stress reduction. Aim for two to three sessions per week for optimal results, and adjust the frequency based on your individual needs and responses.

How long does an infrared sauna session typically last?

Infrared sauna sessions typically last 45 minutes. This duration allows for deep penetration of infrared heat into the body, promoting detoxification, circulation, and muscle relaxation.

To fully benefit from infrared sauna therapy, it is recommended to wear minimal clothing or nothing at all. This allows for direct exposure of the skin to infrared heat, maximizing its beneficial effects.

Staying hydrated is essential during and after infrared sauna sessions. Bring a water bottle and sip water regularly to replenish fluids lost through sweating.

Regular infrared sauna sessions can provide cumulative benefits for detoxification, circulation, pain relief, and skin health. Aim for two to three sessions per week for optimal results, and adjust the frequency based on your individual needs and responses.

How long does a compression therapy session typically last?

Compression therapy sessions typically last 30 to 60 minutes. This duration provides sufficient time for the pressurized air to massage the legs, promoting circulation, reducing swelling, and alleviating symptoms of varicose veins and restless leg syndrome.

Loose-fitting clothing or comfortable loungewear is recommended for compression therapy sessions. Avoid tight-fitting garments that might restrict the flow of pressurized air or cause discomfort during the session.

While it is generally safe to use your own compression sleeves or boots in the session, it is advisable to consult with our staff beforehand. They can ensure that your compression garments are compatible with the equipment and provide guidance on their proper usage.

Regular compression therapy sessions can provide cumulative benefits for circulation, swelling reduction, muscle recovery, and pain relief. Aim for two to three sessions
