Blue Hill Baths
Blue Hill Baths is not in Boston per se, but in a town generally considered to be part of Greater Boston. It's even more basic than Dillon's. It's located in a shared building in an industrial park. They offer platzas and massages, and pile the polished sea stones high in the furnace.
