Well-being gets a well-rounded boost from Forever Young Sport Spa's more than 25 Pilates and yoga instructors, licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and personal trainers, all of whom work together to calm bodies and minds with in-home and studio spa services. Skilled hands hush whining necks and shoulders with eight modalities of massage, including aromatherapy with eucalyptus, peppermint, and rosemary oils and a shiatsu technique that stimulates the body's meridians with pressure and acupuncture. Custom facials punch away at pore-clogging dirt and debris, and sauna wraps help remove toxins and boost metabolism.
Taught by nationally certified instructors, Pilates and yoga group classes include beginner and intermediate reformer, cardio boot camp reformer, advanced reformer, and studio mat classes. The spa's spacious studio complements the flowing movements with simple designs in pale, earthy tones. Additional personal-training sessions eliminate the need to paint muscles on otherwise nice T-shirts.
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.
Techniques imported from Asia and an arsenal of organic products revivify bodies during Origo Spa Lounge's facials, massages, body wraps, and salon services. Facials cleanse, hydrate, and brighten countenances with green-papaya enzymes, caviar, and strategically placed hors d'oeuvres. Six varieties of body wraps and an array of massages refresh and relax physiques. The serene spa experience extends into private showers and a relaxation lounge dappled with rattan armchairs, plush cushions, foliage, and folding screens perfect for entertaining fellow loungers with shadow-puppet theater. Origo Spa Lounge also houses a cafe that vends light lunches and glasses of chinese teas, tonics, and juices.
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.
Kids are treated like royalty at Tantrums Spa Parties, so it makes sense that they should also dress the part.

And, in addition to catering to younger guests, Tantrums is also available for sweet 16 parties where guests can indulge in age-appropriate spa services and pose in a photo booth.
