National Spa Week is April 21-27, and we scoured the listings to find some offers too good to miss. Some specials this Spa Week are really worth trying because they actually cost several times as much any other time, or are just plain smart to get. Make your appointments now!
The Red Door Spa is offering its Signature Stress Melter treatment for $50. It really is just that, a stress melter. It includes an olive oil scrub, aroma therapeutic wrap and body massage. I recently had this treatment, and it should be given as a prescription for beating stress. The aromatherapy alone is worth the treatment. You get to select the scent, and I chose lavender. The scent remained throughout the wrap and massage. Visit the new location at Union Square which is ultra chic and glamorous. 200 Park Avenue South, New York, NY 10003 212-388-0222, http://www.thereddoorspas.com.
Begin to fight that pesky cellulite by trying the 55-minute Sudatonic Body Slimming Treatment at the Cellulite Endermologie Center. One session is normally $200, and you can try it for $50 and see a reduction in the circumference of your area of choice. 50 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016, 212-684-2229, http://www.cellulite-endermologie-center.com.
Never miss a chance to get a facial at Joanna Vargas Skincare. Try the Grapefruit Detox Cleanse Facial with Diamond Peel, Pineapple Exfoliating Treatment, Grapefruit and Mandarin Mask, Extractions and Oxygen Treatment. That’s a lot for a 60 minute facial, and only $50. 501 Fifth Avenue, Suite 2011, New York, NY 10017, 212-949-2350, http://www.joannavargas.com.
Kiehl’s Spa 1851 is offering its Superbly Restorative Massage as well as an Ultra Facial with Extractions. Getting a spa treatment at Kiehl’s is heaven, and their products are fantastic. 157 East 64th Street, New York, NY 10065, http://www.kiehls.com.
Now that the weather is nice again, plan a day trip out to Short Hills, New Jersey to La Maison Salon & Spa. The spa is offering partial highlights or a haircut with glaze for only $50. 34 Farley Place, Short Hills, NJ 07078, 973-379-3898, http://www.lamaisonsalonspa.com.
Why not get seven manicures for $50 this Spa Week at Marc Joseph Salon & Spa. That’s only about $7 for a manicure, which is pretty unbeatable. 147 West 40th Street, New York, NY 10018, http://www.marcjosephsalon.com.
