Feel Well Therapeutic Massage & Bodycare The staff at Feel Well Therapeutic Massage & Bodycare encourages health from head to toe with a slew of facials and body scrubs, yoga sessions, and laser therapy treatments. The team performs more than a dozen specialized facials to exfoliate pores and moisturize skin as well as relaxing body wraps that soak skin in minerals and enzymes before a warm, session-ending shower washes enzymes down the drain to beautify freshwater fish. The center also fosters wellness through activity and fitness sessions. During Hatha yoga classes, certified yoga instructor and 20-year veteran Debra Monaco teaches students to unwind through sequences of postures that incorporate breathing techniques and meditative practices.
The stylists at Beauty Affairs Salon don’t just see beauty as looking good—they see it as providing strength, condition, and health to each customer's hair. Inside their salon, they help clients reach their peaks both physically and mentally with cuts, color, and texturizing services; tranquil and invigorating facials; bridal makeup and updos; and facial and body waxing. They also apply intricate henna tattoos and perfect eyebrow arches with threading services that remove rogue hairs.
The certified muscle magicians and epidermis invigorators at Gerard's The Spa soothe both skin and senses with a line of all-natural Italian products. Gerard's Signature Facial deploys classic European facial techniques, which delightedly open pores like cash-filled birthday cards. Gentle exfoliation and a facial massage precede the skin-swathing customized mask, and a final element of nourishing moisturizer adds vivification to complexions. A symphony of oils, creams, and lotions make beautiful music throughout the Swedish massage, which uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. A glass of wine puts the cherry on top of the relaxation sundae.
After 15 years, Unique Salon & Spa's dedicated staffers carry on with a large slate of services under their new collective moniker. A thorough spa menu is divided among categories of "beauty," "body," "soul." The "beauty" menu offers haircuts, color services, and makeup applications, prepping faces and hair for swanky appearances. "Body" services tend to fingers and toes, painting delicate colors over newly buffed nails or removing unwanted body hair with waxes. Meanwhile, "soul" offers up therapeutic massages and facials, refreshing and rejuvenating muscles and skin.
"We will take care of you from head to toe," promise the therapists at Spa 505. While this slogan is designed to express their comprehensiveness and high level of personal attention, one glance at their service menu shows that this is true in a literal sense, too. Here, a client can get her brows waxed, then detoxify with an ear-candling session, and then savor a hot-stone, Swedish, or trigger-therapy massage before unwinding with foot reflexology. Along the way, one might also opt for a cupping session. Still, some visit just to wax body hair, like the frivolous peach fuzz that can form on our leathery wings.
Although The Goddess Spa resides inside Grand Central Hair Salon, its staff moves beyond coifs to address a whole different spectrum of cosmetic concerns. The aestheticians help rejuvenate skin using everything from ultrasound therapy to specialized anti-aging serums. These treatments aim to conceal imperfections typically caused by acne scars, dead skin cells, and chain-mail pillowcases. Peels gently resurface the topmost epidermal layers without abrasive acids, and the body wraps' seaweed-based herbal gel leaves skin feeling soft and nourished.
