Beauty Resolutions that our NYC spa can offer you!

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy Massage combines oil extracts from herbs and flowers with a relaxing body massage. The basis of Aromatherapy is in stimulation of the person’s sense of smell and the emotional center of the recipient. New Year health resolutions often require a deceleration of anxious energy. Aromatherapy at our spa stimulates the recipient’s emotional processes and produces a calming, stress-relieving effect. This technique may help relieve insomnia, encourage better sleep, and reduce overall stress and anxiety. An Aromatherapy Massage is a great place to start if you are new to professional massages. Committing to resolving your New Year’s health resolutions is a great way to start the New Year on the right foot.

Swedish Body Massage

Swedish Body Massage is one of the most requested types of massage at our spa. Developed in 1812, Swedish Massage Therapy focuses on firm pressure movements with long, steady strokes. Special attention is given to tensed muscles to facilitate oxygen and blood flow, relaxing the muscle. The technique relieves stress and helps to release toxins that are trapped in tense muscle. Swedish Massage Therapy is so effective that many other forms of massage have their roots in it.
Hot Stone Massage Therapy

Hot Stone Massage Therapy technique can be traced back thousands of years. The practice was common in Japan as it is a volcanic island with many mineral hot springs. The volcanic stones would absorb and retain heat, offering great relief when used as a massage tool. At Aura Spa, stones are heated with a steam bath or warm water; then used for deep tissue massages to release toxins and ease tension. Hot Stone Massage Therapy improves blood circulation, deep relaxation, and aids in deeper sleep. When you sleep better, you look better. Try this massage as a way to kick off your beauty resolutions this year.
Japanese Shiatsu Massage Therapy

Japanese Shiatsu Massage Therapy is a derivative method of the Chinese meridian system. At our NYC spa, pressure and stretching is used to improve the body’s energy flow and functionality. A Shiatsu Massage utilizes the same body meridian points that acupuncture does. However, the Shiatsu Massage is an acupressure technique that offers relief by applying external pressure rather than internally with needles. A Japanese Shiatsu Massage can offer great relief from pain, tension, improve blood circulation, and promote a calmer mind. When your mind is calmer, your overall health improves. Committing to your health resolutions is a great way to inject positive energy into the New Year.

The Gift of Stress-Reduction and Relaxation


At our NYC spa, you will have the option of participating in a therapeutic massage session with your significant other. A Couples massage package can be suitable for partners, parent/child, or best friends looking for some stress relief.

Now, you may not be able to keep a resolution to eliminate the stress completely from your busy life. New York City never sleeps and many of the people that call it home try to keep right up with it. What you can do is resolve to take some time to yourself for a relaxing, stress-relieving professional massage. Keep that stress in check for a happier, healthier you in 2015.
