The best spas in New York City bring together cultures, traditions and treatments in a seriously chilled melting pot. You can find everything from a hyperbaric oxygen chamber at a social wellness club to a five-star hotel spa with views of Manhattan and a full suite of facials and body treatments. There’s even a spa dedicated solely to acupuncture with skilled practitioners and a light touch, ORA.
This spa, located inside the Greenwich Hotel in the heart of Tribeca, has a focus on balancing the mind, body and soul.
