"Even the City that Never Sleeps needs a nap," jokes Nicolas Ronco, the owner and CEO of YeloSpa, which serves as an urban oasis for New York's overworked and overtired masses.
YeloSpa welcomes guests into a boldly colored cocoon of maroon and yellow—colors chosen by Ronco based on Tibetan monks' robes and sashes.
Clients gain total control over the atmosphere. They can tailor the color of the lighting, the soundtrack, and even the aroma to their personal preferences. "You can be in the jungle or you can be in a coffee shop in Vienna," Ronco says. The adjustable beds recline back so far that clients' legs are elevated over their heart, which creates a mild sense of weightlessness, gently slows heart rates, and helps guests sink into a deep state of relaxation. With these conditions, falling asleep is effortless.
The spa’s more traditional services are completely customized to each individual based on an initial consultation. Massage therapists can incorporate everything from relaxing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to more focused reflexology techniques, depending on the client's needs. Estheticians use custom treatment for your specific skincare needs using Arcona, BDR, and Environ lines of skincare products. Their facials can even include microcurrent treatments, LED therapy, or microneedling, if necessary."
