Boston Beauty – exhale Spa Battery Wharf

Sure, a return to Turkey is at the top of my travel to-do list, but I’ll be stateside for a bit as business has landed me in Boston. So, instead of dwelling on my flight status (or lack there-of), I figured I’d indulge myself with some Turkish-style R&R.

With just a few clicks I tracked down the only Hammam (a fancy word for Turkish Bath) in Beantown at exhale Battery Wharf.

You can just relax and enjoy the tranquility of the steamy wet-sauna room, or like me, go for the full experience with exhale’s Hammam Detox Therapy. Unlike a massage or a facial, this spa session is more of a journey:

The treatment starts with a body scrub and a head-to-toe warm water bath (Don’t forget to bring a bathing suit – it’s coed!). Next, while relaxing on heated stones, it’s organic aromatherapy exfoliation time. Then the therapist rinses away any remaining scrub with cool water and seals all the refreshing goodness in with a cool mist.

Soft skin, totally refreshed and the best part — check out was way easier than customs!

The coed nature of this spa made me think that this would be the perfect place for a romantic wellness activity in lieu of the more typical couples massage.  Next time I’m bringing my boyfriend, oh yeah, I forgot, I don’t have one!
