Welcome to Secrets from the Treatment Room, a new American Spa series where readers submit their funniest and most embarrassing spa experiences. Here's what happens when one spa-goer gets a surprise in the steam room.
“I visited a great Korean day spa in Manhattan and had quite an experience. The space contained many hot and cold pools, as well as a beautiful wet steam room housed in a terrarium. Once I had frolicked in the pools, I wanted a steam. I opened the door to the terrarium, which was filled with steam so thick I couldn’t see anything else. I didn’t want to stand naked in the door for long, so I quickly sat down just inside the doorway. Unfortunately, I ended up sitting squarely on another guest, who promptly shouted at me in Korean. Needless to say, she and I both jumped up and ran out of there.” –Debra Locker Griffin, president and owner, Locker Public Relations
