Strolling along the canals trying to figure out if you’re going north or south can be a very stressful affair. If your inner self (or inner compass) could use some resetting, make a stop at Koan Float.
Koan offers a range of massages (45 or 60 minutes) from shiatsu or deep tissue to hot stone massaging. If this isn’t your way of relaxing, you can also try a highly embryotic floating session.
A floating session entails quietly bobbing for 45 or 60 minutes in warm salted water, sheltered in a futuristic cabin that resembles something from a sci-fi film. Closing the slightly egg-shaped cabin may evoke claustrophobic feelings at first, but floating is said to have some amazing health benefits. After exiting your egg, you’re sure to be relaxed and re-aligned, ready for another attempt at mastering the city! Note: for a massage or floating, make sure to make a reservation first.
