Valentines Day in New York

Pamper Her (or Him)

Send your loved one to a spa or salon for professional pampering. The following places provide the most decadent massages in NYC.

  • The Aveda Salon and Spa
    456 W. Broadway (between Prince and Houston St.), 966-0219
    At Aveda, you can find biodegradable products made from flowers and plants for your hair and body, scented candles, etc. For a really wonderful present, get a gift certificate for a 60 minute massage or a facial (both are $75). Trust me, it's definitely worth the money.
  • Frédéric Fekkai Beauté de Provence
    15 E. 57th St. (between Fifth and Madison Ave.), 753-9500
    Situated on five floors of the Chanel building, Fekkai's "beauty retreat" (never call it a spa) caters to a sophisticated crowd. For an ultimate day in pampering, get your sweetheart a 50 minute massage ($90), facial ($85), or a heavenly pedicure ($48). Warning: The lavish attention you receive is extremely addictive.
  • Healing Hands
    New York Yoga 1629 York Ave at 86th St. New York, NY 10028
    An homage to hedonism, Healing Hands is a masseuse dispatch service. For appointments please email:
