Ever been to a napping retreat? A snooze after a rubdown is just one of the slightly unusual (and wonderful!) things offered by this midtown refuge that caters to stressed-out Manhattanites. First comes a quick survey and consultation (in which you select your preferred soundtrack, room scent, and the level of firmness you’d like during your rubdown).
After a massage in a private room, our tester reported that everything from her lavender-scented Essence of Vali oil to her neck-and-head emphasizing massage (and subsequent nap) exceeded expectations. “I’ve never had a spa treatment so tailored to my personal needs,” she said. Another novelty of Yelo Spa is its flat pricing—as in just over $2 for every minute of expert massage.
