Like fine marble statues, human bodies must be touched up on a regular basis lest their surfaces dull, their north sides moss, and their forearms fall off. Lavish your life vehicle with today's Groupon to Tribeca Spa of Tranquility, on Greenwich Street in Tribeca. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a 60-minute mani-pedi with reflexology (a $70 value).
- For $59, you get a 70-minute Tribeca body scrub (a $119 value).
Tribeca Spa pampers guests through relaxing nail services and body-bolstering treatments. Trained mani-pedi professionals treat hand and foot digits to the royal rundown, cleansing, shaping, and polishing hand helmets to poised precision while guests recline in oversize armchairs cushioned with bliss. A 10-minute reflexology massage ensures tightly coiled arms and legs fully unwind, and relaxation is further amplified by the use of a hot stone and a jacuzzi basin. Those looking to shed a layer in imitation of silky-skinned bananas may opt for the Tribeca body scrub, which employs traditional Korean techniques to exfoliate skin and increase circulation. After expelling excess epidermis, the skilled aestheticians envelop the body in swaddling seaweed, which is designed to detoxify the frame and leave skin as smooth as a freshly waxed ice rink. An eye-depuffing cucumber treatment and a shampoo and hair conditioning finish off the soothing session, ensuring you leave the spa feeling freshly freshened and refreshed.
TriBeca Spa of Tranquility
TriBeca Spa of Tranquility offers the usual lineup of spa services as well as a few unusual finds. Among the more eclectic procedures, ionithermie treatments employ galvanic and faradic currents to tone and detoxify bodies. Spa Week Daily, a blog that tests hundreds of spa services a year, applauded this uncommon offering and characterized TriBeca Spa of Tranquility as “charming, welcoming, nicely equipped … one of those spas where you want to hug the owner.” The owner in question is Gary Latawiec, a soft-spoken man with an impressive knowledge of the spa's procedures and pillow-fluffing schedule. TriBeca Spa of Tranquility rounds out its extensive menu with 10 massage modalities, facials that use Mary Cohr skincare products, reflexology pedicures, and full-body waxing.
