Shape House: you may not have heard of it, but all your favorite celebrities can’t stop raving about it — Selena Gomez, the Kardashians, Emma Roberts, Demi Moore, and Sophia Bush, just to name a few.

It’s an urban sweat lodge designed to rid your body of toxins and it’s right here in Southern California!

Carson Daly Mornings just launched a brand new segment called Made In LA. We’re trying out many of the unique experiences Los Angeles has to offer and we couldn’t think of a better place to start than Shape House.

We got the idea from none other than Selena Gomez. When she visited the morning show a while back, Carson couldn’t help but mention how healthy she looked. The pop star credited her glow to the Shape House lifestyle.

The premise is simple. You lie inside an infrared-heated bed for 55 minutes. While you sweat, you can watch Netflix, HBO, and other streaming services on a television placed in your eyesight.

It’s a spa-like experience, with dimmed lights, soft music, and a relax room you can utilize post-sweat.

Sweat lodges are an ancient wellness tradition meant to burn calories, deepen sleep, improve skin, and lift moods. And get this, a typical sweat session is proven to burn between 800-1,600 calories. Umm…sign us up ASAP!

Producer Angie, Surfer Stephen, and I made the journey to Shape House’s West Hollywood location to sweat it out and we had an absolute blast.

Shape House currently has four locations in the Los Angeles area — West Hollywood, Larchmont, Santa Monica, and Pasadena. To learn more about the experience, check out and follow them on Instagram at @shapehouse!

  1. Sophie C. I saw your business featured on CBS 2 news last night and watched the live link posted there. I am disgusted with the way you are using my culture that I grew up in as a selling point for your ridiculous spa. DO NOT DO THIS. REMOVE ALL REFERENCES TO “SWEAT LODGE” from your business and selling points. How is watching Netflix and eating carbs a “spiritual experience” as you claim in the reviews and live news links? Why do you think it’s okay to capitalize on Native American culture? We are the original people of this land and you have no respect for spirituality or for our existence. We are here. You may not see us but LA has the largest Native population in the country. You have no right to do this. You are stealing our culture and turning it into a new age trend. People don’t charge for sweatlodges either. If you want to come to a real sweatlodge, I’m sure I know some people that could help you with that, if you need to understand what you’re really trying to sell and to see why that it is NOT OKAY. I linked the news to my Native friends and ally groups and people are disgusted. Your link went viral for the wrong reason. You need to fix this or there will be negative comments flooding your business page because people don’t like this reference to sweat lodge. You could also apologize to the community and you should.
