Drawing on more than a decade of experience, the specialists at Therapeutic Wellness Now focus on deep-tissue massage, but also offers other modalities such as Swedish, hot-stone, and neuromuscular massage. Clients sip complimentary lemon water as blended D?terra aromatherapy oils fragrantly bloom through the quiet air, and taut faces slowly soften during reflexology massage. When they aren't mending muscles, they swaddle and buff clients with body wraps and scrubs. They also perform a number of skin treatments including European facials. Using natural and organic ingredients, the specialists at Therapeutic Wellness Now reveal smooth facial complexions with scrubs and facials.

From within Queens' Club Fitness, Infinity Spa Salon strikes an effective balance between natural skincare and advanced aesthetic treatments. Located a short distance from New York City, aestheticians clear and brighten complexions with seven types of facials infused with vitamin C and hydroquinone-free lightening ingredients, and they also use the exfoliating powers of mechanical microdermabrasion. Unwanted hairs can be effortlessly removed using an all-natural, beeswax-infused formula from GiGi or the advanced technology of an Alma Soprano XL laser, which permanently removes hair from any skin type including ghosts' see-through complexions. In massage treatment rooms, therapists rely on 10 different modalities, including the ancient techniques of Thai massage and shiatsu, to release tight muscles and improve circulation.
Infinity's focus on harmony is also apparent in the salon and spa's interior design, which melds contemporary decor with natural earth elements, such as bamboo plants and warm brown walls.
