Benefits of massage

Many positive effects on mind and body

A massage at Koan Float is always given in the comfort of a private room. Our skilled masseurs ask you a few questions beforehand, so the massage can be tailor-made to suit your specific needs. Moreover, we have 14 relaxing massage techniques on offer.
