East West Massage Therapy sequesters pairs in a private steam sauna that holistically detoxifies bodies and tames stress with thermal therapy. To begin, stiff muscles go limp in the hot sauna for about 10 minutes, soothed by the sultry, jungle-like temperature and recordings of purring panthers until the first beads of sweat drip from foreheads and pinky toes. Physiques leap from their perches in the wooden chamber into a cool, tiled shower, where they stimulate cardiovascular- and immune-system health under a chilly cascade. Aided by hair and body lathers, couples can scrub each other’s backs under the refreshing stream, and friends can wash out sculptural coifs modeled after ex’s jheri curl. A resting period of about five minutes is recommended before the second steam round, during which time invigorated limbs cuddle amid fresh towels, robes, and slippers. Groupon customers also receive 30% off any future massage purchase.
