A New “Urban Sweat Lodge” on the Upper West Side

  Last modified on February 10th, 2019

A new Shape House recently opened at 50 West 86th Street. The concept of Shape House, as described on their website:  “The first and only urban sweat lodge, where ancient tradition and modern wellness meet to burn calories, deepen sleep, improve skin, lift moods and change lives.”

I’m not sure how locals will feel, but this seems to be quite popular amongst the Hollywood elite as well as the many celebrities in NYC.


The new Upper West Side NYC Shape House is their fourth location in the city. Their first NYC post was on the Upper East Side, and they’ve also expanded to Flatiron and Dumbo.

They also have locations in East Hampton and California.

Single sessions are $70; packages range from $50 to $62 per session.

They have two main treatments, according to their site: “sweat” and “lymphatic drainage”, neither of which I feel confident enough to attempt explaining.  But as a sometimes stressed out guy, willing to try anything that might calm me the hell down, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll be paying them a visit.
