"Even the City that Never Sleeps needs a nap," jokes Nicolas Ronco, the owner and CEO of YeloSpa, which serves as an urban oasis for New York's overworked and overtired masses.
YeloSpa welcomes guests into a boldly colored cocoon of maroon and yellow—colors chosen by Ronco based on Tibetan monks' robes and sashes. The colors relate to specific chakras in the body, with maroon representing the chakra of vision and intuition, and yellow representing the revitalizing spirit of the heart chakra.
Once inside private nap rooms, or YeloCabs, clients gain total control over the atmosphere. They can tailor the color of the lighting, the soundtrack, and even the aroma to their personal preferences. "You can be in the jungle or you can be in a coffee shop in Vienna," Ronco says. The cushioned, leather chairs recline back so far that clients' legs are elevated over their heart, which creates a mild sense of weightlessness, gently slows heart rates, and helps guests sink into a deep state of relaxation. With these conditions, falling asleep is effortless.
The spa’s more traditional services are completely customized to each individual based on an initial consultation. Massage therapists can incorporate everything from relaxing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to more focused reflexology techniques, depending on the client's needs. Aestheticians use custom blends of balms and salves from the Éminence and Kerstin Florian lines of skincare products. Their facials can even include microcurrent treatments, LED therapy, or microdermabrasion, if necessary.

Starting when it opened in 1994, Rani Spas' image specialists have been polishing impressions through waxing, facials, massage, hairstyling, and mani-pedi services. The expert aestheticians enhance skin with a medley of visage-rejuvenating treatments, including the smoothing crystal collagen facial and the Synergie peel, which combines a powerful chemical peel with microdermabrasion to repair skin damaged from acne, sun exposure, and professional-apple-bobbing careers.
