Google reviews : 4.9/5

If for you a relaxing moment can’t be one without ethical and sustainable products, you have found the right place.

The Thémaé spa is not only a beauty institute, it is a real concept based around the benefits of tea.

Sensory Capsule at Oasis Meïsō

Google reviews : 4.8/5

Inspired by works of sci-fi such as Fringe, the sensory capsule is a concept that has been proving a grand success for a couple of years now.

The aim? To allow you to disconnect all of your senses in order to be in a contemplative state, floating in a basin of epsom salted water, sheltered from any exterior sound. You can choose between being in the dark and having a soft light, or also choose between total silence and a sound support.

For some people, sessions of floating are equivalent to a session with a zen master, or for others to a restorative nap. In any of those cases, you will find yourself changed.

At the end of your session, you can drink a cup of tea, read a book or simply relax in the common relaxation space.

You can find the complete menu on the website of the institution (website in French).

Price : €65 full price for the session / €49 for the session for students

Address : 51 Boulevard de la Chapelle, 75010 Paris

Opening hours : everyday from 9am to 12am

 

Spa Dans le Noir?

Google reviews : 4.5/5

The Spa Dans le Noir? is not only a spa, it’s an opening to a parallel world to ours where our different senses are strongly increased by the lack of sight.

For example, it will be possible for you to experience a massage in the dark or even a hammam under a starry sky. Even if the treatments, massages and rituals are very traditional, your experience, on the other hand, is unique.

Letting go is more natural in this disturbing environment that will awaken all your senses.

The concept of Dans le Noir? is also ethical, as 50% of employees have a case of severe disability. Once you go through the doors of the institute, their disability becomes their major asset in a place where sighted and partially sighted people are on an equal foot regarding their senses.

You can find the complete menu of treatments on the website of the institution (website in French).

Price : from €52 for a solo custom-made massage

Address : 65 rue Montmartre, 75002 Paris

Opening hours : Monday to Saturday from 12pm to 8pm and Thursday until 9pm
