Get $50 Treatments During Spa Week Fall, October 12-18

It's that time again.  During the annual Spa Week, October 12-18, 2015, you can treat yourself to  facials, massages and alternative health treatments for just $50!  That's right, just $50. But appointments fill up quickly, so book yours today.

Essential Therapy L&Y Spa is participating in Spa Week, October 12-18, 2015.

Everything She Wants was invited to preview a treatment at Essential Therapy L&Y Spa (122 E. 25th Street, 212-777-2325) in New York City, one of many participating spas. For Spa Week, Essential Therapy offers: a 50 minute Custom Organic Facial with Pumpkin Masque and Extractions; Eyelash Extensions from Synthetic Mink; and a 50 minute Pumpkin Spice Massage with choice of deep tissue or Swedish technique. I recently pulled a muscle in my neck and my upper back, and I needed a massage, big time. So the timing was perfect.

Essential Therapy is conveniently located near Gramercy Park and the Flatiron District. From the outside, you can't tell the tranquil experience that awaits. The space is adorned with Buddha statues, wooden fixtures, hanging lanterns and candles that give it a decidedly Zen vibe. The waiting area is warm and inviting and the treatment rooms are spacious.

My massage therapist was Yan, which initially took me by surprise.  I usually prefer a female masseuse, but Yan was friendly and his massage techniques were excellent. And he was willing to apply less or more pressure at my request.  The pumpkin oil and lotion he used was a nice touch. "Now you smell like a pumpkin," he said. I left my treatment feeling relaxed and more limber.

The spa is dedicated exclusively to the healing power of massage and holistic facials. Essential Therapy has a lot of regular customers, and I can see why. Use of the sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room is complimentary with each treatment.  So make sure to give yourself enough time to take advantage of those perks.
