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.

With more than 200 large pores, the feet are a natural place to detox, and due to that, you should drink lots of water before and after treatment. Benefits of the podiatric plunge-and-purge can include relief for muscle aches and joint pains, a boost in immunity and energy levels, and faster healing of soft-tissue injuries sustained after being mistaken for an un-tender cut of meat.
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.
