Tree Hugger
(776 Boylston St.)
Nature, it turns out, is superhealthy. To wit: The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Boston, the only Forbes five-star spa in the state, has custom created the Forest Therapy Journey, inspired by the Japanese art of shinrin-yoku (aka forest bathing). The 80-minute meditation and massage treatment gets as close to strolling through trees as you can; the room features stunning forest imagery and sounds. Insider Tip Scoop up the Aromatherapy Associates Forest Therapy Bath & Shower Oil and Wellness Mist.

Upward Dog
(208 Newbury St.)
Lululemon is taking over the world. No news there. But wait until you see the new two-floor experiential space on Newbury Street. Namaste to two floors, daily classes, showers, communal work space and a full-on lounge area. Insider Tip No need to juice up before your visit. Nourish Your Soul, the Boston-based fresh-presser, is ready for you with healthy snacks and green juice for days.
