The massage therapists at Rejuvenate Day Spa melt tense muscles with dexterous digits. Practitioners begin by lubricating lumbar with Biotone massage cream for smoother kneading and somersaulting through art-museum air ducts. During the bamboo massage, stalks of varying lengths and diameters assist fingers with deep-tissue work to promote improved circulation and sensory-nerve perception. Swedish techniques encourage relaxation, ease tension, and result in more delicate pancakes. A furnished rest area offers clients a place to recuperate after each session.
More than a spa, Body & Soul Retreat strikes down malady at its stressy source, setting its sights on systematically improving the immune system through specific body therapies. For instance, lymphatic massage purges toxins from the body alongside a heaping helping of pampering during Ayervedic healing sessions that enlist oils, herbal powers, and deep strokes that stimulate blood circulation. A duo of massage therapists tandem-attack aches and pains during the Four Hands Escape treatment, chasing down splinter cells of knots and the moles that so often evade therapists armed with novelty mallets. Couples looking to cure their ailments can inquiry about tandem-savvy packages that include massages and a jacuzzi designed with pairs in mind.
Beyond their impressive bodywork skills, which also include cranio-sacral, reflexology, and neuromuscular techniques, Body & Soul?s practitioners also tend to rough, cracked skin with sugar scrubs or salt glows laced with lavender, citrus, or peppermint, and groom fingers and toes during aromatherapy manicures and pedicures. For communal unwinding, guests can rustle up a cadre of friends for one of Body & Soul?s spa parties.
Along with massages, spa parties, and mani-pedis, the "soul mates" at Body and Soul Retreat also perform a variety of facial services, including organic skin care, back facials, and full service waxing. Now in their 20th year of business, they have also recently added chiropractic care, acupuncture, and Chinese medicine to their list of services.
While other young girls were out playing in the streets of her native Bangladesh, Sabrina Khan crouched over a pot of fruit, herbs, and spices. At the age of 10, she was already busy formulating the kinds of skin remedies that would later serve as the focal point of her spa in the United States.
Though she now has skincare down to a more exact science, much has stayed the same for Khan. As the owner of Victoria’s of New York Day Spa, she still relies on natural ingredients for her facial salves, which she pairs with ancient rituals designed to soothe the mind and body. Aside from Khan’s signature facials and nail services, the spa offers 10 distinct massage treatments designed to relieve severe tension, treat somatic dysfunction, and apply more therapeutic pressure to sore spots than a hug from a boa constructor.
