This luxury spa in the East Village offers infrared sauna sessions that promise to give you a natural high. The saunas in the 5,000sqft aren't like traditional ones -- they're set at a lower temperature (but they make you sweat twice as much), and they're equipped with phone chargers and speakers. Each session helps the body up its levels of dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins (aka DOSE), so you'll walk out feeling pretty much high on life.
