Relaxing at AIRE...

Meet Martha, the beautiful and happy face of Mr Steam, maker and supplier of steam showers for homes and spas and one of the Mondenus BlogTourNYC generous sponsors. 'Feel Good Inc.' is their tag line and they certainly made sure we felt good. Martha gave us a lively presentation about Mr Steam (now I really want one of those showers) at the ICFF and on Sunday we were treated to a visit to the AIRE Ancient Baths...

Yes, Martha and Mr Steam treated us, our still jet lagged (European) bodies and aching feet to a fabulously relaxing session at the AIRE Aincient Baths. On entering this place I immediately had a feeling of "I like it here" due to the decor. The bare brick walls, the heavy wooden furniture, the "cage" lights. It had the kind of look I wouldn't (to an extent) mind in my home. None of that "glitzy spa" intimidating glossy stuff that makes most people feel out of place… After getting changed, we immersed ourselves into the warm waters. Surrounded by low lighting and calming music, we relaxed and chatted. We cleansed our airways and pores in the eucalyptus steam room and floated in the salt water pool. It was just wonderful. We all came out relaxed, glowing, smiling and grateful for this wonderful experience. This place is definitely on my "things to do" list next time I'm in New York.

PS: Apologies for the graininess in some of the images, I can't remember why, but I took some of them with my iPhone and the light was fairly low…
