2024 Best Spa Membership

Release Well-Being Center

Heated benches and cozy chairs by a fireplace. A well-appointed locker room with a eucalyptus steam room. Two kinds of saunas and two cold-plunge pools (one for the brave and one for the very brave). Hot tea and cool cucumber water on tap. One visit to this brand-new spa, and you’ll not only feel great, but you’ll want to come back for more. Good news: Release offers several membership options that can make frequent visits a breeze and save you money. Combine that with the wellness coaching and workshops, and you’re looking at a new you.
