Spa Week

April 15, 2008

It is definitely spring in New York. You can see it everywhere – Cherry Blossoms are starting to pop out (we’ll be in Brooklyn come May, to celebrate Sakura Matsuri, New York City’s “Rite of Spring”; we’ll keep you posted), people start to go out more, they take out summer clothes from their storages and everything seems somewhat fresher.

Not there yet? Prepare yourself for full-bloom spring with a visit to a spa. Especially that, as of Monday, we’re having a Spa Week in the city, with $50 massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and other cures. You can enjoy the discount prices (which are really attractive; you basically pay half price for most treatments) through April 20th.

Just to give you an idea of what to expect: 50-minute pedicure at The Red Door, a super-enriched detoxifying oxygen bath at La Casa Day Spa, a 60 minute hot stone massage at Green Phoenix and a 75 minute deep-pore cleansing facial at the Moonflower Spa. Almost 100 locations in Manhattan are taking part. So hurry up, before Cherry trees have a chance to look better than you.
