Buoyance Inc. shushes turbulent minds and tense bodies with relaxing massage and sensory deprivation in an Oasis flotation tank. A 30-minute therapeutic massage eases patrons into flotation therapy with all-natural scented or unscented oils, a heated massage table, and closed-circuit video of sleeping puppies to promote relaxation. Guests immerse themselves in a tank of purified, heated water mixed with nearly 1,000 pounds of sea salt. The 8.2'x4.6' tank is quiet and dark, giving clients a safe space in which to mentally rehearse their one-person revues to the music of Pac-Man.
During an 80-minute session of shiatsu bodywork, attentive therapists massage meridian-based tsubo points with palms, knees, elbows, and feet as clients recline at floor level. The reflexology treatment strives to reduce tension and fatigue through the stimulation of pressure points along the feet, hands, and ears. The ancient therapy turns rough-and-tumble appendages into soft-and-tumble hands and feet with a 30-minute paraffin treatment as well as a strain-eradicating foot massage with Zents hydrating body lotion.
