Last week, my mom and I visited Urban Sweat for some mother/daughter bonding time. I treated her to an afternoon of relaxation as an early Christmas present. At first she was resistant, concerned that she was losing quality shopping time. After 5 minutes of sitting in the Urban Hammam, her worries began to melt away and she warmed up to the experience. My mom loved being able to unplug from the hectic pace of her daily life and spend a few hours unwinding, focusing on finding her center so she could leave Urban Sweat feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day ahead. The two hours we spent wandering between the 7 heat therapy rooms was a wonderful experience for us to share. Quiet conversation in the various tranquil environments gave us a temporary escape from life’s worries so we could detoxify our minds and bodies while fostering our mother/daughter relationship.
