Make the Most of Your Lunch Break with a Relaxing Massage

Looking to banish midday stress and indulge in some “me time” during your lunch break? Feeling drained and achy by the time the clock strikes noon? You’re not alone. Many working individuals feel that they don’t have time to relax during the day, which leads to increased stress, muscle tension, and overall discomfort. You may be surprised, however, to find just how much you can recharge and rejuvenate in only an hour. Aura Wellness Spa, a Korean day spa in NYC, offers a number of services that take 60 minutes or less. It’s easy to stop in for a quick yet relaxing massage that will prepare you to take on the second half of your day.

One hour Treatments

The Swedish massage is the most commonly requested service at Aura Spa. This relaxing, hour-long massage allows you to escape from the hustle and bustle of New York City and melt away any tension. Characterized by long, smooth strokes and the kneading of individual tense muscles, this massage is perfect for relieving both physical and mental stress.

For a boost of energy, try the Japanese Shiatsu massage. This treatment focuses on finger pressure to relieve energy blockages and reintroduce the optimal flow of energy throughout the body. It’s known to be a safe and effective form of preventative medicine and will leave you feeling revitalized and full of life.

A Japanese Hot Stone Massage will send you into a deep state of relaxation. Volcanic basalt stones are warmed and carefully placed on the body’s various energy points for ultimate serenity and warmth. This massage will promote healthy circulation and ease any built up stress or tension. Be prepared to enjoy a great night’s sleep after this relaxing massage!

Aura Wellness Spa offers a highly favored Aromatherapy Massage that makes a great choice for beginners. A combination of Swedish massage and Japanese Shiatsu, its namesake originates from the practice of releasing essential oils to fill the room with alluring scents. Aromatherapy promotes overall well-being and is thought to possess natural healing properties.

30 Minute Treatments


If you have a shorter break time, the 30-minute Reflexology Massage will fit right into your schedule. This form of therapy operates on the premise that there are many reflex points in the body that can be accessed through the hands and feet. The body can be treated as a whole non-invasively through the nerves in those areas.

For an alternative to body massage, you could try one of Aura’s expert facial treatments. Their Signature Facial features customized cleansing and exfoliation, stimulation of the facial muscles, a rebalancing face mask and hydrating lotion. An abbreviated version of the Signature is their mini-facial, which only takes 30 minutes.

In addition to these treatments, Aura Wellness Spa also offers water massage therapy and body scrubs that will leave your body feeling invigorated and renewed.
