Phyto Spa on Lexington Avenue has a dramatic botanical spa environment that will be transforming. In addition to total relaxation, the spa will provide hair analysis and treatments by Phyto hair care, facials and body treatments by Mierac Paris skin care, and body fragrance by Caron Paris fragrance. And this treatment will be administered in a 3,000 square foot vertical garden with over 9,000 live tropical plants from all over the world. This is a place of treatment for various hair and skin conditions rather than for cuts or color as in a traditional salon. Hair treatments range from $150 to $320.
Another good choice to honor mom is the Aida Bicaj Institut de Beaute on East 75th Street between Park and Madison Avenues. This spa specializes in skin care administered in an upscale and relaxing atmosphere. They will give mom a complete skin diagnostic examination and then administer a regimen of skin care products with the Biologique Recherche line of products specific to her needs. She can then maintain the care at home on her own.
The Cornelia Day Resort will give your mother a true taste of Fifth Avenue luxury. Located on the eighth floor of a building on Fifth Avenue, the salon is an oasis of quiet in one of the busiest and most upscale shopping areas in the world. When she enters, mom will be given a white robe to put on and then set on a chaise lounge with a warm brown blanket in a private room where she can relax and control the music and the temperature. From there it is into a dimly lit treatment room for a facial and a hot rock body massage. She will receive a head to toe skin care treatment and then be escorted to the roof top garden where she can relax as long as she wants before rejoining the hustle and bustle below.
If mom has a downtown sensibility, the Great Jones Spa in trendy NoHo engenders relaxation by the constant sound of running water. The subterranean water lounge is decorated with palm trees to simulate a tropical feel without the oppressive heat. From there mom will go into the plunge pool, the thermal hot tub, the chakra light steam room, and the river rock sauna to stimulate her circulation and to detoxify her body. Various facial and full body skin care treatments are available along with Shiatsu massage. This is truly a place of relaxation and regeneration for mom.
