The infrared sauna was invented after a long period of trial and error with other wavelengths: x-rays made the body invisible, and microwaves made it too delicious. Enjoy steamless alternatives with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get a 30-minute massage and 30 minutes in the infrared sauna at Bodhi Holistic Spa in Hudson (a $65 value).
Bodhi Holistic Spa houses a squadron of licensed massage therapists who strive to knead woebegone bodies back to health with a multicultural variety of techniques. During the therapeutic massage, a dexterous set of digits rubs soothing oils up and down the entire body, working out knotty discomfort and aiming to increase blood and lymph flow from head to toe. The infrared emitters in the subsequent sauna session radiate their heat directly into refreshed guests, eliminating the need for steam or lathering one’s body in tabasco sauce. Thirty minutes in the heat box can help to flush toxins and relax muscles for a full-throttle rejuvenation.
