If you’re looking to relax and recharge in New York, the city that never sleeps has plenty of options for rejuvenation. From calming facials to power-nap body treatments, NYC’s best spas offer a mix of cultures and traditions fused into a seriously chilled melting pot.
A definite city-favorite, Ohm Spa has been praised for its massages and skincare by Yelpers. The team of highly trained therapists, massage therapists and skincare specialists can tackle anything from deep tissue to hot stone to signature CBD facials and PowerGun active sports massages. You can also hang out in the spa’s wet lounge, which features a three-story waterfall, hot tub and cold plunge pool.
The Aire Ancient Baths brand is dotted across the world, and the New York location in a huge, sweeping bathhouse is nothing short of decadent. It’s so impressive and offers a long list of services that you’ll want to make sure you set aside enough time to experience it all.
Located inside the Peninsula hotel, this luxurious spa has fancy private suites and a full-service salon for facials and massages. The true selling point here, however, is the water-based treatments. From their ‘Oxygen Awakening’ facial (which includes an oxygen-boosting peel, a face and neck massage and a finishing mask) to their bodywork sessions that incorporate ancient bathing rituals like their ‘Ancient Thermal Bath’, it’s an immersive day of relaxation that will leave you feeling cleansed.
Located right across from the sprawling library in downtown Manhattan, this hidden gem is an oasis away from the city’s busy streets. Founded by celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas, this luxurious hideaway is the ultimate antidote to stress with facial and body treatments that calm, refresh and revitalize. For those who want to take it up a notch, add on a hi-tech pick like the ‘Emsculpt’ or ‘Power Nap’ body contouring treatment.
