Your float experience

Get ready to experience the new revolution of relaxation. Your float experience | Tory Urban Retreat

Lets's get you floating - What to expect

Upon arrival – Our float facilitator will show you to your room, show you what to do & answer any questions that you may have.

Preparing to embark on your float – shower thoroughly to remove any oils & wash your hair with shampoo provided (no conditioner please). If you have any small cuts cover with vasoline provided. Insert the earplugs & take out your contacts if you wear them.

Easy as that...you're ready to experience the new revolution of relaxation....

Slowly enter the float pod, lower yourself carefully.... & prepare to let your mind & body enter hyper relaxation...lift off & let go... Gentle sounds will play for the first 10 minutes and the gradually fade away... body begone...mind be still...leave the world for an hour in a way you hadn't thought possible....

Finish floating – Gentle sounds will come on to let you know that your time has nearly come to an end.

Sit up slowly to regain your balance, and keep your head tilted back slightly to allow the water to run off your head without getting into your eyes. Open the door, stand up slowly and allow your body to readjust to the pull of gravity before exiting.
Please stand in the float pod for a few seconds to allow the salt water to drain from your body; squeeze the excess water from your hair, and wipe excess water from your body before exiting. Shower once again to remove all the salt solution from your hair and skin.

When you're ready to leave, either get on with your day feeling amazing, or feel free to relax & slowly come down to earth in our post float lounge. For the ultimate in treating your body to ultra relaxation, have a massage with one of our qualified therapists...or head through to our huge Finnish Sauna & lush plunge pool...you have so many relaxation options at our Urban Retreat.

  • You have had diarrhea within the last 24 hours
  • You have any open cuts/sores
  • Have any sort of contagious illness
