Throughout the spa, aromas from various body treatments waft through the air. One may be able to smell sweet scents from a brown sugar scrub or from a dessert therapy treatment that coats the skin in a yogurt-and-honey spread. Relaxing aromas come from custom-blended essential oils in the aromatherapy massage, while a refreshing hint of peppermint drifts from the skin of those receiving the very minty body scrub and massage combo.
The sense of smell is just one of the senses the staff of Tribeca Beauty Spa takes into consideration. Inside one of seven treatment rooms in their 4,000 square foot facility, aestheticians strive for visual splendor by removing dirt and oil from pores. Within the pedicure/manicure oasis, nail technicians shape and polish nails and can add such treatments as a salt glow foot rub, warm towels, and a moisturizing massage—bringing the sense of touch into the mix. Downstairs in the relaxation lounge, meanwhile, the staff welcomes robe-and-slipper-clad clients into a cedar sauna that helps them relax and detoxify before or after treatments. This sauna actually sounds like the most relaxing noise of all—silence.
