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.),
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.),
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
849 Lexington Ave. (between 64th and 65th Street), 486-1122
An homage to hedonism, Healing Hands is a masseuse dispatch service.
