  • Over the last couple of months, we jammed your iPods with the best spa-tunes and filled your palate with the tastiest (and healthiest) spa treats. Now it’s time to redefine what it means to go to the spa for a ‘touch-up’. My brother used to wear this gray silky shirt to bars to pick up <... >

  • Many ideas float to the surface when we think about meditation. We hear the mantra OM. We visualize ourselves sitting cross-legged on the floor, hands rested, palms up on knees. Our eyes are closed. Can you hear Enya’s music wafting through the air? Now for a reality check… we live in NYC, full of distraction;the <... >

  • Most of the time, when you walk down the streets of NYC, you walk, meaning head straight, eyes in front of you, with your mind on a zillion things. But if you’ve ever had a chance to stroll, you’d see that there’s a lot happening at the second level, including some serious spa going. We <... >

  • I am a person who “suspends disbelief”, especially when it comes to “alternative” wellness.

This month, try these Thanksgiving inspired spa products and let more than just tryptophan relax you before the stresses of the holiday season set in and the winter <... >

  • DO NOT tell me to “just relax”. Hearing this only stresses me out and infuriates me. But, when I arrived at the spa instructing me to ‘Just Calm Down’, I actually felt…well, calm. And that was even before experiencing the ever-relaxing and culturally infused Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage, offered exclusively at the Flatiron district spa, <... >

  • When I walked into Exhale Spa on Central Park South two weeks ago, the condition of my feet was beyond distressing. Caution: The following is not for the squeamish. I had innumerable blisters, two-week-old, purplish-red, chipped nail polish, calluses as tough as rhino-skin and a few other atrocious abrasions that made me feel particularly guilty <... >

  • “Relax Your Mind”, “Returning to Now” and “Releasing the Past”. More than just titles of album tracks, these phrases are sound advice for your relaxation time. Studies continue to show that music can produce physiological changes in heart rate and respiration, and most people report that music can stir feelings and emotions too. No wonder <... >

  • How many times have your Choos caught a street grate today? How many people were you shoved up against on your subway commute this morning?
