Wall Street Bath & Spa knows its market: when patrons enter, they see a mosaic that depicts a bull and a bear wrapped in a spa towel. Though the men and women's spa is inspired by Old-World bathhouses, modern touches such as this mosaic saturate the environs. Even the sauna selection pits the traditional against the contemporary: visitors can lounge in either a russian sauna that’s encased in 16 tons of rock or an infrared sauna that heats the body without affecting the surrounding air temperature. They can also work up a sweat in the eucalyptus steam room, which hosts body scrubs, Platza treatments, and bachelorette parties for koala bears. Once sufficiently heated, guests cool off in a 52-degree cold-plunge pool or a full-sized pool, whose softly illuminated waters glint off the blue tiles that line the bottom. A VIP lounge sequesters groups of up to 20 in a private space equipped with a jacuzzi, side-by-side massage tables, a plasma TV, and a pool table.
Like napping in a cotton-candy spinner, relaxing tends to work up an appetite, so the facility also has a juice bar and an on-site restaurant brimming with European fare and a selection of infused vodkas.
New Heavenly Spa uses advanced technology to safely rejuvenate all skin tones and help patients achieve their ideal bodies. Aware that darker complexions can be more sensitive to lasers, technicians rely on a Candela module to smooth and depilate all skin tones. Several weight-management programs and dietary supplements help contour figures, and minimally invasive medical interventions such as beauty injections plump creases and flatten corduroy lines on faces. Together, medical-grade exfoliation treatments and massage services restore an even, healthy texture to skin all over the body. In the spa, a warren-like hallway leads toward private treatment rooms painted in muted pastels.
Red & White Spa pampers guests from head to toe, with massages, facials, laser treatments, and more. A wide variety of massage modalities ensures clients get the ultimate pampering they need, whether they're looking for a relaxing aromatherapy massage, a revitalizing scalp massage, or classic Swedish techniques. European facials revitalize skin with deep pore cleansing followed by steam, exfoliation, a facial massage, and a soothing mask. Along with facials and massages, the spa staff beautifies guests with eyelash extensions and waxing or laser hair removal.
Pleasant Road Spa is a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation. Within, a team of aestheticians use renowned Dermaologica products to perform more than a dozen facial treatments, including specialized services for men and expectant mothers. Adventurous clients can dabble in advanced treatments such as glycolic peels or microdermabrasion, which intensively exfoliates the face to dissolve signs of aging or soreness from a staring contest with a raccoon. Nearby, nail techs execute soothing pedicures laced with green-tea and peppermint essential oils. Excessively hirsute guests can get un-hirsuted with an array of waxing services for the face and body.
