Although there is no shortage of spas in Manhattan, I always enjoy discovering new ones that add to the city’s variety. Recently, I had the opportunity to experience a treatment at Spa Merge, part of West 57th Street by Hilton Club, New York City’s first ground-up shared ownership property. Fortunately, for me and other locals, this urban oasis isn’t reserved strictly for owners. Instead, the ground-level spa invites those passing by on 57th St. to escape the city’s hustle and bustle and enjoy the spa’s soothing environment. It was certainly a welcome escape for me. Heading back to the office after experiencing the spa’s exclusive Fusion Massage ($120, 60 minutes; $180, 90 minutes) was a bit more challenging. Look for more on Spa Merge in an upcoming issue.
This May, PrettyCity.com will host its fourth annual MedSpa Month, a month-long online campaign to help educate women on the benefits of medical spa services while offering them major discounts. Consumers simply log on to www.medspamonth.com for a list of participating medical spas in their area, where they can choose from a variety of services for only $99, such as photofacials, laser hair removal, and injectables.
