After a hard days work, if you can't go on vacation, at least you can get a swedish massage without leaving the country. The place is located very conveniently at chelsea piers, you know the place with the bowling center and the large wall you can climb. Although not so big, the massage is well worth it. I'd definitely do the full 50 minute or 80 minutes (if you have time) massage. The 25 minute massage is way to short, and it takes staff there sometime to work out the kinks in your muscles. They also have other types of massages there, including a good sports massage which will focus on your muscles from a hard workout. I think i also saw a pregnancy massage there too, though i don't really know what that encompasses. The massages are really good, although a bit pricey, but I'd definitely give it a go at least once in a while. I'd definitely give them a call at first to schedule an appointment though.
