Uptown Float celebrates opening in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Uptown Float in Columbus held a ribbon cutting for its location on 11th Street Friday.

Uptown Float is a place where you can unwind and hover in a tank of water and salt. The process is known as gravity reduction and sensory reduction.

The float therapy sessions last about one hour and Epson salt or magnesium sulfate is used. During the float, you won't lose gravity as 1,000 pounds of salt in the water allows you to lie effortlessly on your back. The water and air in the float pods are kept at skin temperature which is 93.5 degrees.

Uptown Float is owned by Joseph and Kristin Wolfenbarger who say they fell in love with floating about two years ago and decided to share the experience.

"We are so happy to be a part of the uptown community. We're so excited to finally be able to open. It's been a long time coming and we just want to thank everybody for coming today to support us," says  Joseph Wolfenbarger.
