New Yorkers aren’t really bath-takers. (Soaking in that teeny tub you share with three roommates? No thanks!) The Japanese, on the other hand, have the onsen, a traditional bathing ritual that served as the inspo for the baths at Shibui Spa. Try a 30-minute private Elemental Detox bath ($95), which uses mineral-rich Himalayan salt to draw toxins out of the body and improve circulation while a blend of grapefruit, rosemary and juniper oils gets skin baby soft.
