There is no better way to relax your sore muscles and detoxify your body than a nice hot steam bath. Book one of our four private steam rooms, each equipped with a shower and private dressing room. We offer both 30- and 60-minute sessions. We provide everything you’ll need for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
This Steam Bath is over 100 years old. Formerly known as the Chair City Steam Bath, it is the oldest and longest running steam bath in Massachusetts. We are proud to bring it back to the community and we hope you love it as much as we do.
Here's a few important things to think about before you steam.
It is extremely important that you arrive for your appointment hydrated and in good health. If you are sick or contagious, we kindly ask that you please stay home.
Everyone, including children, must have a signed liability packet on file.
We provide towels and facecloths in your private changing room along with some body wash and additional personal products for your use. We recommend that you bring water and a spare towel for your Steam Bath. However, we've got your back if you happen to forget them. We offer many products for sale including Body Wash, Lotions, Soaps, Salt Scrubs, Essential Oils, Shower Shoes, Tote Bags, Water, and more.
We offer Attar Essential Oils for $5 /15ml. You can choose from pure Eucalyptus or a blend w/ Rosemary, Lemon, Lime, Sweet Orange or our house blend. These are only used with water that is poured over the hot radiator for steam infusion. Please do not pour essential oils directly over the radiator.
We now have a variety of traditional, hand-made Sauna Whisks available for your Steam Bath. If you would like to book a whisk for your steam appointment, please call us to schedule your appointment in advance as not all times are available. We offer Birch, Red Oak and Eucalyptus whisks. These whisks can also be purchased dry to take home and enjoy in your own shower.
Please refrain from eating a heavy meal or drinking alcohol prior to your steam appointment. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who appears intoxicated or under the influence of narcotics. It is also highly recommended that you do not steam during pregnancy as it's been proven to be dangerous to a developing fetus.
Please do not bring in any glass products or use any kind of body oils in the steam bath. Both create an extremely dangerous environment for both staff and other guests. Using body oils creates a film over floor and bench surfaces that is both slippery and repels disinfectants and cleaners. If you bring your own essential oils, we offer a complimentary service of swapping them into a plastic container so that you can bring them into the steam room.
The rooms are totally private so you can wear whatever is comfortable. We offer complimentary sauna wraps for both men and women. These are washed and sanitized between guests.
You have the full 30 or 60 minutes in the steam room. Once you exit the steam room and are in your dressing room, you can take your time to cool down, dry off and get dressed. Please make sure you close and lock the back door to your dressing room when you are done and then flip the switch that is located to the right of the door. This turns on a red light above your door that tells us you have exited the steam room and we can access it to clean it for the next guest.
There are waterproof timers in each room. please leave them in the room when you leave. There are clocks in both the dressing rooms and hallway outside of the steam room. it is your responsibility to make sure you exit the steam room by the end of your appointment time as there is likely a guest booked right after you.
Most importantly, we kindly ask that you please DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ON THE RADIATOR. Do not open the bleeder valve as this will deplete the pressure in our boiler and will effectively shut the system down.
And lastly, glass is not permitted in the steam rooms. If you bring and break glass in the room, it will need to be shut down to be cleaned and you will be charged a fee up to $350 for the loss of revenue and clean-up costs.
There is likely an appointment booked after you. If you are more than 15 minutes late, your appointment may be cancelled.
The link below is our Liability Packet including our revised Cancellation agreement. You are welcome to print this, fill it out and bring it to your first visit.
Our Himalayan salt room is equipped with comfortable leather furniture and a four-and-a-half-inch, crushed Himalayan salt floor. It feels like you are walking on a beach.
Halotherapy can help relieve the symptoms of allergies, sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, cough/cold, asthma, emphysema, overall respiratory/lung function, acne, psoriasis, eczema and more.
Halotherapy was discovered in the 1800s by Polish miners who noticed their frequent exposure to salt mines yielded positive results in their skin and respiratory health. Halotherapy mimics the effects of long-term salt mine exposure- condensing it into a 30-minute session.
Unlike a salt mine, a Halotherapy room is in a controlled environment. The humidity levels and temperature range are generally 67-74 degrees f and 45% humidity. Some may find it cool in the salt room.
Halotherapy uses a special generator to grind pharmaceutical grade salt into fine particles known as Dry Salt Aerosol. Microparticles of salt are dispersed into the room during the 30-minute treatment session. The particles, measuring less than 5 micrometers in diameter, are small enough to penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli.
The inhaled salt kills bacteria and breaks down mucus and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. These can either be coughed up or eliminated through the blood stream. The treatment may reduce hypersensitivity and inflammation in the lungs, thin out mucus build-up, eliminate allergens, improve lung function and open up breathing passages. It also has many benefits for the skin by making the skin more resistant to bacteria, decreases swelling and inflammation, normalizes pH balance, increases turgor (elasticity and hydration of skin), stimulates cell repair and regeneration, increases permeability, decreases itching and improves skin circulation. It is also good for acne, eczema, hives, psoriasis in maintenance phase, atopic dermatitis, sebaceous hypersecretion (oiliness and dandruff), post operative states (aesthetic surgery) and cellulite.
Children respond to Halotherapy even more than adults. Ever try to irrigate the nose of a child with saline solution or to use an inhalation mask? Halotherapy makes it simple and more effective.
Children are welcome in the Salt Room. Any child that is 12 years old or under is $22 per session when accompanied by a paying adult.
Halotherapy is safe for all ages, from babies to seniors.
Q. What do I wear?
A. You can bring shorts and a t-shirt to change into or simply wear the clothes you have on. We also have complimentary sauna wraps you are welcome to wear. Nudity is not permitted in the salt room.
Q. What should I expect?
A. You will be brought into the dressing room where you will lock the door behind you. This is where you can hang and leave your belongings. Please use the provided towels to wipe your feet prior to going into the salt room. If you choose to wear shoes, including flip flops, please wear booties over them. The spa attendant will close the curtain that separates your dressing room and salt room from the salt storage area, where we will be starting the Halogenerator. Once you are ready, go into the salt room and close the door behind you. We will start your 30-minute Halotherapy session. We'll then knock on the door to let you know when it's finished. When you exit the salt room, leave the salt room door open and proceed to the dressing room where you will collect your belongings.
Q. Any suggestions?
1. Don't shave the day of your salt treatment.
2. Don't rub your eyes during your session.
3. Leave your drinks in the dressing room.
4. Sit back, relax and take some nice deep breaths to get the most out of your session.
