Like fine marble statues, human bodies must be touched up on a regular basis lest their surfaces dull, their north sides moss, and their forearms fall off. Lavish your life vehicle with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a one-hour European deluxe facial ($119) and your choice of a one-hour massage or body scrub (a $119 value) at Tribeca Spa of Tranquility (a total $238 value).
Tribeca Spa of Tranquility pampers guests with a slew of relaxing, body-bolstering treatments. Trained aestheticians take faces from Gollum-y to glowing with a one-hour Tribeca European deluxe facial, which purifies pores with luxurious creams and foaming cleansers, targeting deep-set dirt and extracting impurities and imbedded vanilla beans for a smoother skin surface. Along the way, senses are awakened with soothing aromas, and a massage and firming mask bestow the mug with a youthful élan and cheek muscles that are less prone to angry outbursts.
Boasting 10 calming massage techniques, the spa's skillful therapists can soothe back muscles with gentle Swedish strokes, pressure-pulsing shiatsu, tantalizing aromatherapy, or foot-and hand-focused reflexology. Those looking to shed a layer in imitation of silky-skinned bananas may opt for the 70-minute Tribeca body scrub, which employs traditional Korean techniques to exfoliate skin and increase circulation. After expelling excess epidermis, the skilled aestheticians envelop the body in swaddling seaweed, which is designed to detoxify the frame and leave skin as smooth as a freshly waxed ice rink. An eye-depuffing cucumber treatment and a shampoo and hair conditioning finish off the soothing session, ensuring you leave the spa feeling freshly freshened and refreshed.
TriBeca Spa of Tranquility
TriBeca Spa of Tranquility offers the usual lineup of spa services as well as a few unusual finds.

Spa Week Daily, a blog that tests hundreds of spa services a year, applauded this uncommon offering and characterized TriBeca Spa of Tranquility as “charming, welcoming, nicely equipped … one of those spas where you want to hug the owner.” The owner in question is Gary Latawiec, a soft-spoken man with an impressive knowledge of the spa's procedures and pillow-fluffing schedule. TriBeca Spa of Tranquility rounds out its extensive menu with 10 massage modalities, facials that use high-end Mary Cohr skincare products from Paris, reflexology pedicures, and full-body waxing.
