A small, female-owned business in Chelsea, Tranquil Day Spa works on its clientele in four simple rooms, each decorated in tranquil tones that include the usual spa flora and wall art. Treatments are relatively free of luxury flair, but cover a wide variety, meaning there’s likely something for everyone inside. For the skin, clients can target acne with peeling, age lines with collagen and dead cells with masks. Massages are the spa’s specialty, covering everything from the classic Swedish and deep tissue to lava stone, aromatherapy, pre-natal and reflexology. On Fridays, a discounted $30, 30-minute chair massage is on offer for those who need a quick come-down after work or between meetings. Full packages are also available, including the Tranquil Escape, which includes a sea-salt body scrub, mud treatment, facial and a full body massage.
