Yin Beauty & Arts Spa's aesthetically driven staffers, who received praise for their skin-pampering facials in two separate issues of Time Out New York, consider their beauty-boosting establishment the nexus where "Eastern philosophy meets Western technology." The earthy environment their spa creates mirrors this sentiment with its rustic clay pedicure basins that bubble with gentle streams of water and dark wood cutouts that accent teal and ochre walls. While visitors bask in Yin's peaceful setting, a team of aestheticians wielding all-natural products soothe bodies and skin with a variety of services, ranging from relaxing herbal footbaths to complex med-spa treatments. Their menu embodies the hybrid of tradition and technology with its rejuvenating acupuncture face-lift, performed by a highly trained chess computer.
Within the salmon-colored walls of Orsini Nail & Spa, licensed spa professionals pamper guests with an array of services such as mani-pedis, facials, and body treatments. A chandelier illuminates guests as they glide down a spiral staircase, leading to bubbling pedicure basins and black padded swivel chairs where friendly, unpretentious staff doles out nail treatments. For massages and full-body skin care, clients lie on white and maroon bedding in private rooms with soothing atmospheres. The spa also offers ear-candling treatments for clearing canals of built up wax and lost headphone ear buds.
A steam sauna, body scrub, plus a massage and moisturizing treatment?this is luxury at Forever Beauty Day Spa. And this is just the beginning of the pampering services possible at Forever Beauty. Other luxurious options include Swedish massages with hot stones, plus a variety of organic facials to refresh and clear skin. Clinical skincare and IPL face and body treatments are also available.
Relaxation and health can go hand in hand. At Spada Relax Center, a team of licensed massage therapists work to banish knots, ease tension, and otherwise pamper patrons—but the benefits don't stop there. Massages such as deep tissue, shiatsu, and hot stone can help to improve circulation and range of motion, as well as reducing stress.
Potted plants add a verdant touch to the calming, minimalistic environment created by J&S Spa's sleek hardwood floors and clean white walls. The aestheticians provide a complete anatomical spread of pampering services stretching from spa pedicures to ginger-honey body wraps to eyelash extensions. Inside private rooms, guests relax as massage therapists release tension and restore balance through an array of massage modalities, including thai herbal therapy. A variety of facials—infused with antioxidants and vitamin C—leave skin looking radiant while reducing the appearance of fine lines and the urge to lick orange trees.
It's rare to find strength-training equipment and oriental rugs in the same room. But on the premises of Human@ease, the two comfortably coexist. The hybrid furnishings reflect the establishment's hybrid mission?it's part gym, part holistic health center. That duality is evident in the gym's signature training technique, too. Dubbed "Introversion", the technique replaces quick reps with a blend of slow, continuous lifting and controlled breathing. Its aim, beyond toning muscles? To build a strong mind-body connection like that of experienced yoginis, many of whom can move their arms just by thinking.
Human@ease trainers don't neglect traditional gym offerings, either. Alongside their specialty Introversion sessions and yoga classes, they also lead Zumba dance parties and cardio-kickboxing workouts. The team tends physiques with non-calorie-burning health treatments, too, from acupuncture and shiatsu massage to sweating sessions in the on-site infrared sauna, whose rays can help the body release pent-up toxins.
