Patrons can gain 24 hours of access to the centers' saunas, hot and cold jacuzzis, clay rooms, ice rooms, salt rooms, and relaxation rooms with general admission, and then enhance a day of lounging with luxurious add-on spa treatments. Body-scrubbing sessions reveal fresh skin, and massages paired with stints in one or more of the saunas leave muscles as relaxed as a cat on a windowsill or a dog on a skateboard.
