Unwind with an ancient Ayurvedic treatment and experience exfoliation on a whole new level! When it comes to spa treatments that are as relaxing as they are rejuvenating for your skin, New York Ayurveda is among the city’s finest. Specializing in the ancient Indian art of Ayurveda—a 5,000-year-old practice which aims to achieve the balance of body, mind and consciousness—this midtown Manhattan spa is the perfect place to experience bliss on a higher level. This Spa Week, New York Ayurveda is offering three of their famous treatments for just $50! And having experienced the Abhyanga-Gharshana treatment (among others) ourselves, we can honestly say that’s some serious bang for your buck. The 60-minute massage features a dry lymphatic skin brushing with a silk glove, followed by an herbal oil treatment. The brushing (gharshana) increases circulation so that the herbal oil (abhyanga) that follows can penetrate the skin and nourish it properly. But it’s not just increased circulation and skin nutrition which makes the Abhyanga-Gharshana so amazing. The warm herbal oil seems to have sleep-inducing qualities as well. We were so relaxed during our treatment that we may or may not have taken a short nap! If super soft skin and ultra-relaxation are your thing, we recommend booking an appointment at New York Ayurveda ASAP.
