DO sweat it! - Heavenly
Day Spa 56
I was excited to learn that the heat and sweat generated from a Soft
Heat Sauna like the one at the Elemur Day Spa 56 at
940 Third Avenue
is actually a work out! Who
knew that relaxing in a Radiant Heat Sauna could give you a mild
cardiovascular workout, support weight loss, reduce cellulite AND make you
feel relaxed? Natalia did!
She’s the Registered Nurse and owner of Elmur Day Spa 56,
with extensive medical and holistic experience from the Russian traditions
in which she was trained. Natalya
and her excellent staff offer healing and relaxing body and facial
treatments that help you escape the stresses of the city and bring you
back to a state of balance and harmony.
At Elemur Day Spa 56 you will not only rid yourself of the
strains of the day, you will leave armed with the knowledge of how to
better care for yourself moving forward.
I experienced “The Heavenly Treatment,”
which definitely leaves you floating on air while somehow magically
keeping the price firmly planted on the ground.
Heavenly Treatment” includes: sauna, seaweed wrap, massage and a
facial with one of the most advanced vibratory ionic techniques available
today. The package is on
special for spa-nyc.com visitors for only $179.00 (normally $210.00 for
spa-nyc.com visitors) a
celestial steal for 2 ½ hours of treatment from any spa in the middle of
“The Heavenly Treatment” is for spa veterans, newcomers who
are ready to step it up a notch and anyone who needs to take a load
off. I started my Elemur
Day Spa 56 “Heavenly Treatment”
in the exclusive Soft Heat Sauna, working, or should I say, relaxing
up a sweat. I have
always been overwhelmed by the heat of traditional saunas found at
the gym and had a tough time lasting in a stuffy steam room.
I had now idea I was missing so many benefits.
The soft/radiant heat made it easier to breath, while warming
my muscles better than ever. I
was able to stay in comfortably and long enough to start the
detoxification process. The
sauna step is key, as I learned from Natalia, it raises the
metabolism and gets the body working on its inherent self healing
up the seaweed wrap...Yes, you will feel like a giant piece of human
sushi, delicious and extravagant! If
you have never been wrapped in this miracle elixir before, you are in for
a treat. It looks more like a
green soup than the kelp on the beach, and is thoughtfully applied to your
entire body with soothing light messaging strokes.
After you are sufficiently covered in the detoxifying seaweed, you
are wrapped in a series of thermal blankets.
You have no choice but to relax.
The weight of the warm blankets and the heat generated by the
seaweed’s nutrients absorbing into the skin is literally “heavenly!”
After 20 minutes or so of pure sushi bliss, Natalia will gently
wake you, because if you are anything like me, you have fallen asleep!
She will lead you to the shower. After which you will emerge to
find a cool glass of water, fresh towel, robe and her able hand to guide
you to the massage room.
massage portion of the package is customizable, from different aroma
therapies to different massage techniques…Swedish, slightly deep, with a
dash of Reflexology, and soothing aroma therapy oils for relaxation were
my choices of the day and off I was to heaven once again.
this all weren’t enough…the facial is like saving the best for
last. If you are a fan
of facials you have to come and experience the Face X, Skin
Beautifier. It is
the only machine like it in
New York City
and comes to us from the beauty masters of
. If you are not
experienced in the facial department or are a little tentative, then
this is the place to start. The
machine uses ultra sonic energy and vibration to promote gentile,
non invasive, exfoliation up to 35% of the stratum corneum, with
better and more targeted results than microdermabrasion.
At the very capable hands of Olga, another RN on the
wonderful Elemur Day Spa 56 staff, my face was literally in the
hands of an angel. She
started the facial with a gentile cleansing and toning process, and
then introduced moisture and oxygen deep into the skin cells with
the Skin Beautifier. The
spatula/wand actually generates up to 25, 000 vibrations per second
allowing the healing elements of the treatment process to more
deeply penetrate the skin, revealing new and more radiant skin
beneath the surface. At
the same time the Skin Beautifier encourages healthy skin, by
pushing the membrane to produce new skin cells.
The results are dramatic and immediate.
Instant rejuvenation is visible even after the first session
and continued treatments with the gentle touch of the Skin
Beautifier can combat early signs of aging, sun damage, wrinkles,
acne and discoloration leaving a brighter more supple skin tone that
everyone will admire.
