“We’re moving on up to the East Side, to deluxe $50 dollar treatments in the sky!” With the Jeffersons jingle on repeat in our heads, we are expanding this Spa Week season in the great neighborhood of Harlem, and we’re pretty excited about it if you couldn’t tell…

We are welcoming old favorites and have sought out new Harlem hotspots. They include spas that have been featured on Oprah’s favorite things, facial peels, one-of-a-kind manicures, and fabulous massages. Move on up and get your zen on like a real uptown girl.
