New York City may be the city that never sleeps, but it also offsets this well-deserved reputation with opportunities to recharge at its myriad spas. With an incredible array of services, from rejuvenating facials to detoxifying massages, New York City spas offer a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

If one is pounding the pavement in Midtown,  they step right into the aptly named Bliss Spa. With two locations--one in Midtown and its flagship locale in SoHo, this spa features treatments such as the Rhythm and Bliss massage. Take a look at the Bliss brand lotions and potions; one is  sure to find something to perk up their skin after a late night that turned into an early morning. And, with names like Thinny Thin Chin neck firming cream, one gets a sense of their cheeky humor.

After a long day of shopping in SoHo, one can put their feet up at Soho Sanctuary, a day spa in New York City that’s exclusively for women.  Be warmly greeted by a welcoming staff, and then pampered by aestheticians with products such as Dr. Hauschka’s rose cream, which will take the senses to a higher place above the din of the city.

For something truly transformative, try Pure Qi in Greenpoint. The services at this spa run the gamut from reflexology to ear candling with a face lymphatic-draining massage. Or, if one want the benefits of a good sweat without actually exercising, try the cupping or the moxibustion treatments, both of which use heat to stimulate circulation and break up congestion.

After an hour or two indulging in a New York City massage or relaxing at a spa, one is sure to leave with a re-balanced Qi and ready to give New York a run for its money.
