Urban Float is one of Melbourne’s premier sensory deprivation centers. Our mission is to provide a high quality, affordable flotation experience to the people of Melbourne. We are passionate about providing this service because we have seen first hand the incredible difference sensory deprivation can make in a person’s life. Whether they have anxiety or depression, or if they suffer from painful muscular tension, or if they simply need a place to unwind and release stress, sensory deprivation has proven to be an excellent treatment.
The tanks, each located in their own room with their own private shower, provide an environment of greatly reduced stimuli. The tank itself is light proof and almost entirely sound proof. Floating in the water even removes the sensation of gravity. Many first timer floaters wonder if floating will be difficult for them. The water is supersaturated with 800kg of epsom salt, which lets the you float on top of the water with no effort at all.
We totally understand that the floating experience can be uncharted territory for some. However, there’s no reason to be nervous, as it is a totally safe experience that many doctors prescribe for their patients. Our professional and welcoming staff are happy to answer any questions you may have and ensure that you have the most pleasant, rewarding experience possible.
