Beauty & Health


2017 Winner: Exhale


Breathe a sigh of relief at exhale, where treatments have earned shout-outs from Allure and Vanity Fair and go beyond stellar deep-tissue and sports massages. Think yoga-inspired Thai Stretch, qi-loosening Shiatsu and popular go-to Fusion, a Swedish-based rubdown with therapeutic rhythms and aromatherapy; most options are available for couples should you knead to connect with your sweetie. A friendly warning: The warm neck pillow from the Zen lounge—which smells like baking cookies—is so soothing you’ll want to buy one for yourself.
