Without spas, terry-cloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with this Groupon.

With admission, robe-and-slipper-clad guests can meander through the facility's many amenities, which include a redwood sauna, an aromatherapy room, a steam room, and sun deck. Visitors can check David's schedule to book with a licensed massage therapist here before visiting the facility for their massage or platza oak-leaf treatment, which lets them relax in the Russian room as a broom of oak leaves drenched in olive oil soap sweeps the body and helps to open up the pores and remove dead skin.
Russian & Turkish Baths
Upon setting foot inside Russian & Turkish Baths, guests trade their modern-day trappings for a cozy robe, a pair of slippers, and a veritable playground of old-world relaxation. Since 1892, the bathhouse has carved out a nonjudgmental space where its guests comfortably indulge themselves in its panoply of sauna, steam, and massage treatments. Certain hours of the schedule are blocked off to keep things single-gendered, while others maintain a respectful co-ed atmosphere.
Once comfortably draped in terry cloth with their street clothes safely stashed in a locker, guests meander into the labyrinthine facility, where behind every door a different steamy realm awaits. Bodies surrender toxins to the air inside of the Russian sauna, where 20,000 pounds of heated rock—drives guests to tap ice-cold water into buckets and pour it over their heads. In the Turkish room, hints of eucalyptus infuse the balmy air, and the aromatherapy room furthers the olfactory buffet with detoxifying steam and scented oils.
Between steamy excursions, guests can cool off in the ice-cold pool, savor light fare or Russian feasts in the restaurant, or stretch out on the sun deck for a nap. Specialists stand by ready to dole out relaxing massages or render skin silky smooth with soap-drenched oak leaves, and multiple Swedish shower jets leave regular visitors fresh and clean.
