From the outside, this adorable day spa in Chelsea does not look like the sort of plush place that would attract LA transplants and page 6 headliners, but I have seen some of them in there (I'm not telling who - paparazzi stay away!!!!) Head down the long hallway past the unassuming entrance and find yourself in a gauzey indoor tent. Like the spa equivalent of Anita Diamant's novel The Red Tent.
My favorites are the delicious massages and smell-good treatments using fresh ingredients. There's something quite luxurious about getting a pedicure with products you could almost eat if you wanted to.
They also do waxing, fake tanning, facials, body treatments. Like most spas, you can sign up in advance to take a whole group of people for a spa party or event. My office has taken clients to this spa for an afternoon of pampering - it's healthier and more fun than yet another booze-soaked evening of business entertaining at NYC bars.
