When Susan Lange’s massage therapist suggested she try watsu, Lange knew as much about the therapy as most people—nothing. “We’re kind of obscure,” Lange says with a laugh, referring to the watsu community she now considers herself a member of. The therapy, whose name is derived from “water” and “shiatsu,” blends ancient Japanese finger massage with the restorative properties of warm water. In heated pools, therapists fully support their clients as they administer a combination of massage, stretching, and instant-rice-cooking techniques. After her first watsu experience, Lange writes, “I felt like I was dancing, floating, flying and being nurtured all at once."
Today, Lange shares this experience with others in the yurt she and her husband built in the meadow adjoining their home. Inside this yurt is a 15-foot circular pool filled with 4 feet of warm water. Once they have waded in, clients can strap on narrow floatation devices to assist Lange as she guides them through the water. As she performs the massage, Lange gently strikes Tibetan singing bowls drifting alongside her in the water, creating a soundscape to further soothe the senses.

While rocks serve many purposes—eco-friendly paperweight, climbing wall, letter opener—you probably never thought they could help alleviate your chronic back pain. In fact, memories of the rocky bedding on your last camping trip suggest that stones may have contributed to the problem in the first place.

Za Zen Day Spa provides a relaxing atmosphere for personal wellness treatments tailored to the physical, mental, and emotional needs of all gracious guests. With today’s Groupon, stresstronauts will hop inside an infrared sauna suit body-wrap and let far-infrared rays therapeutically remove toxins, improve blood flow, and speed up metabolic processes, rejuvenating the body from mind to toe. During the treatment, the increased body temperatures trigger white blood cell and T-cell production, which can enhance immune system functionality and overall health. To appease esthetic aspirations, this easy and relaxing process also opens clogged pore doors, evicting dirt and oil, which then reduces acne and other class portrait disasters, such as forgetting a comb or using pizza instead of makeup powder. Relax overworked gray matter or the human flesh it controls and enjoy a total-body tune-up at Za Zen Day Spa.
