Exhale operates a couple City on the Hill locations. The top outlet is on Arlington Street — so popular that weekend treatments are best reserved about a week in advance. Bamboo stalks and giant Buddha statues set a serene scene at this go-to spa overlooking the Boston Public Gardens, situated inside the rarified Heritage on the Garden building. This is the perfect spot for visitors on a hectic schedule to stop and smell the eucalyptus. Short on time but long on healing needs? Opt for the 60-minute cupping session, an ancient Chinese practice that helps everything from lower back pain to asthma to gastrointestinal issues. No pain, though you may feel still feel a mild sensation afterwards. It’s well worth the therapeutic process.
