Focusing on your breath in a sauna, inhaling the steam in a hammam, or meditating while floating in water... These age-old rituals, 100% detoxifying, prove to be the best beauty treatments for banishing fatigue, eliminating excess, and cleansing the body from within: liver, kidneys, tense back... It's all part of the package. The result ? A great relaxation session with friends to boost circulation and rediscover smooth skin, rosy cheeks, and a rejuvenated look like never before. Here's a roundup of the best Sunday-opened spots in Paris for relaxation and self-care.
Clemens, in Latin, evokes the art of letting go. It's in this mood that Clēmēns, the first aquatic spa in Paris, opened its doors in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, offering a unique experience that showcases the extraordinary benefits of water on the body, combined with cutting-edge treatments. Here, an enchanting and distinctive atmosphere prevails, reminiscent of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood, with its arches, pools, historic stones, beams, and candlelit ambience, creating the perfect setting for relaxation. You can pair the pleasure of a floating bath with aquatic sophrology or hypnosis, an ideal way to conquer stress, tensions, and minor discomforts (€140 for 1.5 hours). A special mention goes to the duo ritual, which offers the private use of a pool with your partner or BFF.
What we love : The floating massage in a natural hot water pool. There are no massage tables; you float in the water, supported by floatation devices, while the masseuse employs a unique therapy involving acupuncture points, pressure, stretching, and massage. The movement and the soothing power of water amplify the effects, allowing you to completely unwind (60 minutes - €140).

Welcome to an isba with a fireplace, forest-themed mattress, and wooden logs. The idea ? Immerse yourself in a unique experience that cleanses both body and mind... the Slavic way ! Warning: if you're easily startled, this may not be for you. Guided from the start by an imposing "Steam Master," the chosen ritual begins in a Banya (an intermediate between a sauna and a steam room) with temperatures ranging from 50°C to 75°C and 60% humidity. You lie on your stomach, with your head in a ventilated hole filled with fresh air scented with pine and eucalyptus. The ritual of flagellation then begins with a bundle of branches and tree leaves soaked in hot water to stimulate blood circulation and the immune system. The Steam Master then pours icy water over you and immerses you in a cold bath. It's intense but incredibly invigorating ! Afterward, you proceed to exfoliation using natural products (honey, salt, herbs, fruits), followed by soaping with birch branches. The result ? No more muscle tension, a toned body, clean skin, and a strong spirit.
We love : To recover from your emotions, a forest-themed mattress awaits you by the fireplace. Wrapped snugly in a warm aromatic sheet, the Steam Master provides you with an incredibly relaxing foot massage.
