Upon setting foot inside Russian & Turkish Baths, guests trade their modern-day trappings for a cozy robe, a pair of slippers, and a veritable playground of Old-World relaxation. Since 1892, the bathhouse has carved out a nonjudgmental space where its guests comfortably indulge themselves in its panoply of sauna, steam, and massage treatments. Certain hours of the schedule are blocked off to keep things single-gendered, while others maintain a respectful coed atmosphere.
Once comfortably draped in terry cloth with their street clothes safely stashed in a locker, guests meander into the labyrinthine facility, where behind every door a different steamy realm awaits. Bodies surrender toxins to the air inside of the Russian sauna, where 20,000 pounds of heated rock—much like perfectly spiced Thai food—drives guests to tap ice-cold water into buckets and pour it over their heads. In the Turkish room, hints of eucalyptus infuse the balmy air, and the aromatherapy room furthers the olfactory buffet with detoxifying steam and scented oils.
Between steamy excursions, guests can cool off in the ice-cold pool, savor light fare or Russian feasts in the restaurant, or stretch out on the sun deck for a nap. Specialists stand by ready to dole out relaxing massages or render skin silky smooth with soap-drenched oak leaves, and a triple-jet Swedish shower leaves both regular visitors and those stuck in three-legged races fresh and clean.

Throughout the spa, aromas from various body treatments waft through the air. One may be able to smell sweet scents from a brown sugar scrub or from a dessert therapy treatment that coats the skin in a yogurt-and-honey spread. Relaxing aromas come from custom-blended essential oils in the aromatherapy massage, while a refreshing hint of peppermint drifts from the skin of those receiving the very minty body scrub and massage combo.
The sense of smell is just one of the senses the staff of Tribeca Beauty Spa takes into consideration. Inside one of seven treatment rooms in their 4,000 square foot facility, aestheticians strive for visual splendor by removing dirt and oil from pores. Within the pedicure/manicure oasis, nail technicians shape and polish nails and can add such treatments as a salt glow foot rub, warm towels, and a moisturizing massage—bringing the sense of touch into the mix. Downstairs in the relaxation lounge, meanwhile, the staff welcomes robe-and-slipper-clad clients into a cedar sauna that helps them relax and detoxify before or after treatments. This sauna actually sounds like the most relaxing noise of all—silence.
SKINNEY MedSpa founders Adriana and Marisa Martino—who just happen to be identical twin sisters—have been interested in medical aesthetics since they pursued their certification. They immediately set out working under doctors in various med spas, gaining expertise in everything from laser treatments to cellulite reduction. They used their extensive knowledge to open SKINNEY Medspa, where they lead a team of medical aestheticians who use lasers for hair removal, resurfacing facials, and stretch mark reduction. Boasting a wealth of positive press, they also perform treatments such as microdermabrasion and photo facials, and thanks to their on-staff physician, Dr. Halland Chen, plasma facials that can encourage cell rejuvenation through applications of the client's own treated plasma or pulverized TV screens.
