With a menu inspired by nature, our  treatments are designed to nurture the mind and body through the use of ritualistic methods and healthy products in a calming environment. The Retreat provides a sensory experience to soothe the senses and enhance wellness. We keep the EMFs (Electro Magnetic Fields) low, therefore we do not use heating tables, hot rocks, etc. We have combined simplicity and spa services to help you Find Your Calm. You will find all experiences are personalized to meet each guests needs.  


The Recover-Me Room
In our Recover-Me Room you will find beautiful Canadian Hemlock Low EMF Infrared Wood Saunas, where you can clear your head and relax your soul.  The gentle warmth of the heaters accelerates blood and lymphatic flow and will help you discover just how good you can feel!  
Hand-carved Himalayan Salt Domes produce a beautiful glow and ambiance. They are actually warm foot revitalizers! Rebalance, revitalize and gently cleanse the body and mind as  the gentle light and warmth radiate from the smooth salt surface onto the surface of your feet and up through your body, melting away stress and fatigue. 
You will find a large screen monitor for viewing special videos on meditation, relaxation techniques and more. Enjoy and learn from a selection of relaxation clips, stress-reduction technique films, self-discovery videos, wellness broadcasts and more in the "Slouch-On-the Couch" Area  (ok really comfy chairs but certainly the same feel). 
Checkers, coloring books  and a deck of cards allows for fun interaction and enjoyment. We suggest shutting off your phones during this special time, although it is not a requirement. Phones may not be on during treatments.
The "pièce de ré·sis·tance" of this tranquil space are the Himalayan Singing Bowls that adorn the shelves and fill the air with deep vibrations and beautiful music. Himalayan Singing bowls have been used for centuries for healing, meditative and restorative purposes. They are said to contain the sacred sound of "OM (Aum)". They create a range of powerful vibrational frequencies to restore the healthy balance of the body, mind, and soul. The sounds generated by Singing Bowls are a type of energy medicine that promote healing from stress disorders, pain, depression, and dis-ease. Learn the basics of playing a Himalayan Singing Bowl  and invite the Singing Bowls To Sing!  Discover how to make your own “Good Vibrations" and tune into your higher self!

Our Therapy Rooms
Our therapy rooms are equipped with Hepa Air Purifiers that removes up to 99% of airborne dust and pollen as small as 2 microns. In addition the ionizer helps freshen the air as well by producing negative ions.
We are aware that many people are sound sensitive therefore, we have equipped each room with it's own media player to ensure that the volume of the music can be adjusted based on individual needs. Bose speakers ensure quality sound!

Learn How To Self-Treat Your Stress

Relax as you learn three different methods to reduce your stress. These powerful strategies can be life changers! Approximately 1 hour

Infrared Saunas 

Clear your head and relax your soul with the gentle warmth of our low EMF Infrared Saunas. Discover how good you can feel!

Infrared Saunas - Includes complimentary use of slippers, robe and a towel
Infrared sauna use is $40 per couple with any other 2 
with any 50 min+ massages, facials or body treatments at our NYC spa. 
Clear your head and relax your soul with the gentle warmth of our low EMF Infrared Saunas. Discover how good you can feel!
The infrared sauna is a bit different than your traditional sauna. There is no steam. The sauna heats the person not the air. As the body temperature rises the blood vessels dilate and circulation is increased. The increased blood flow accelerates the body’s natural healing process. This increase in body temperature also signals the nervous system to signal the millions of sweat glands covering the body. This often brings on deep sweating. Enjoy a heat therapy that is as relaxing as it is beneficial.
Prepare
Bring a bathing suit with you or a  cotton tee-shirt and shorts  for use in the Sauna. We will provide you with a towel and slippers and you will be able to take the slippers home with you. You may take the towel off in the sauna, but you must leave your bathing suit bottom on and your slippers. Thank you for your cooperation.
We recommend reading over the list of far infrared sauna advisements and contraindications prior to booking your sauna session. Please contact us directly if you have any further questions.
ADVISEMENTS & CONTRAINDICATIONS
Any of the below described contraindications will require you to use discretion for your own wellbeing. Severe medical conditions or pregnancy will require a note of authorization from your doctor prior to the use of the Infrared Sauna.
Medications – Diuretics, barbiturates and beta‐blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent heat stroke. Some over‐the‐counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Pregnancy/Breast Feeding – Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna. A doctor’s consent is required. If breast feeding, do not use the infrared sauna. A detoxification process will produce the expelled toxins into your breast milk.
Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow.
Elderly – The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. As we mature, our bodies naturally lose this capability. Guests over the age of 70 will be permitted for infrared sauna use, however, at a lower temperature.
Cardiovascular Conditions – Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension/hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
Alcohol/Alcohol Abuse – Contrary to popular believe, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. Guests who appear intoxicated or inform us of alcohol consumption prior to use of the sauna will forfeit their scheduled appointment and no refund or credit will be issued.
Chronic Conditions/Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability to Sweat or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.
Hemophiliacs/Individuals Prone to Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Fever – An individual who has a fever should not use an infrared sauna until the fever subsides. 
Insensitivity to Heat – An individual with insensitivity to heat should not use an infrared sauna.
Joint Injury – If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.
Pacemakers/Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble infrared saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may case.
In the rare event that you experience pain and/or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use, and exit the sauna.

Includes complimentary use of slippers, robe and a towel
