Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed away in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a 55-minute massage of your choice at SPA j (an $80 value), located in Northvale.
SPA j is decorated with a peaceful elegance that welcomes clients and treats them to a natural awakening of the senses. Give your soul sack one of seven available massage options—Swedish, hot stone, deep tissue/sports, aromatherapy, prenatal, reflexology, or couples. The massagesperience begins with a thorough consultation before a certified massage therapist goes to work making mashed potatoes of the body's sore muscles. A Swedish massage helps melt muscles, erasing tension, improving blood flow, and awakening the lymphatic system. Give your body a break and surrender to an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle-grain pressure with the deep tissue, or massage away the back pain that stems from carrying around a person in your body with the prenatal. De-stress your soles after marathon ziggurat climbing with reflexology's foot-focused treatment designed to ease pain and encourage relaxation. Whether there's a method to your modality madness or you consult the lobby's Buddha statue for advice on which massage to choose and which horse to bet on, a session at SPA j will loosen tight muscles, relieve stress, and ease tension. Call for an appointment.
SPA j's owners—a mother and daughter team—own a massage school and practice aesthetics, respectively. They've put everything they've learned about spa work and hospitality into their own business, where they customize every treatment to meet the precise needs of the client. Hence, each visit begins with a consultation so the practitioner can pinpoint the client's goals and needs, whether its a skin analysis before the Dermalogica face treatment or a quick game of "This Little Piggy" before the foot revitalizer. Clients can also find relief for weary muscles with bodywork treatments such as hot stone, Swedish, and aromatherapy massage.
