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.),473-0280
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.
- Frdric Fekkai Beaut 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
849 Lexington Ave. (between 64th and 65th Street), 486-1122
An homage to hedonism, Healing Hands is a masseuse dispatch service.
