Urban Sweat is a heated, holistic healing immersion experience.
With six unique styles of saunas and steam rooms, you are sure to draw out impurities, toxins, and reduce stress levels.
The authentic nature of the heated circuit tends to induce a blissful, dreamy state that may require intermittent rest.
We have created a euphoric relaxation space that welcomes sleep, meditation, or hypnotic rest.
As part of our Commitment to your Health and Relaxation Experience we ask you as a valued guest and member to respect our Whisper Policy. Anything louder than a whisper is to LOUD. We have intentionally threaded silence and the respect for a quiet environment into our Urban Sweat Relaxation Experience.
We encourage you to use this time for quiet reflection and inner silence so that all participants can explore the opportunity for Rest, Relaxation, and Optimal Health.
Enhance your relaxation experience with a delicious, fresh pressed Raffa Real Food Juice or Detox beverage.
Our boutique offers a generous variety of yoga, holistic, and wellness minded books for purchase, that compliment a
restorative Spa Day. Relax, Unwind, Enjoy!
Upon entrance to Urban Sweat, a spacious room dedicated to
active relaxation is laid out for enjoyment, inclusive of two heated
aqua lounges, and over two-dozen Sumo relaxation bags.
The experience encourages you to drink plenty of water when
moving through the rooms to replenish the body. The experience
includes complimentary chilled lemon and cucumber water.

There are numerous benefits to sweating regularly. Sweating is a natural form of detoxification that helps the body to free itself from contaminants, resulting in weight loss, brighter skin, deeper sleep, and increased energy. Sweating also helps boost endorphins, alleviate migraines, and soothe muscle soreness. It strengthens immunity, and assists with mood improvement, stress relief, and hormone balance. Basically, sweating releases the bad stuff, so you can focus on the good stuff.
We recommend a minimum of 3 hours to truly unwind and allow the benefits of the various rooms in Urban Sweat to work its magic on your mind, body and spirit. If you can allow yourself the full day (4 hours or more) in Urban Sweat, DO IT! We all have spent 4 hours or more stressing out, being anxious, being sad or being overwhelmed. 4 hours of being unplugged from the world in a state of calm, relaxation and quiet should not be alarming.
Yes, we advise against sweating on an empty stomach, but we also recommend not arriving immediately after a heavy meal. Eating light, fresh food prior to your appointment is best. Salty foods tend to be better than sweet foods, drinking plenty of water is always a must.
We want you to feel awesome. Your body needs plenty of water to function optimally, so you’ll always feel your best when you are hydrated. When you sweat in Urban Sweat, your body uses water to flush out toxins and other waste materials, and the more water you have to use, the more productive your sweat will be. It’s also important to replenish the water that you sweat out, so that you walk away feeling vibrant, refreshed, and hydrated.
