Massage, 5 step Oxygen Facial & Reflexology
New York City
there are lots of amazing spas in New York City. But what makes them
great? At Madison-Spa it is the people.
headed to Madison-Spa looking forward to enjoying their hot stone
massage, 5 step oxygen rejuvenation facial, and a foot
reflexology session. Not only
was each a fabulous service, but each was given by a different
aesthetician, extensively trained and wonderful at what they were doing.
journey started with a hot stone massage with Oksana.
My nerves from the day's stress literally melted away as Oksana
centered a large hot stone on my lower back.
As she went up and down my back and my legs she would very
seamlessly incorporate a smaller hot stone into the massage.
She would incorporate it more actively as the stone cooled
slightly- always very aware of its temperature and how much heat I could
take. Being more of a Swedish massage
girl myself, I was amazed at how much the hot stones added to the massage.
The heat awakened my skin, cleared my sinuses, and helped to
rid my body of every ounce of tension I had. Oksana found tension I
didnít even know was there and she skillfully eliminated it.
all warmed up and really beginning to forget about
the city that existed just 4 stories below when Irina, Madison-Spa's
attentive owner, led me into the sitting room where
Oksana served me cookies and hot tea.
I was so warm and cozy and removed from the chaos outside that
wanted to stay all day.
there, Irina led me to the facial room where she
covered me with a fleece blanket. The
moment Irina began the facial I realized that I was in for a treat.
It was obvious that not only was she good at what she did, but she
truly enjoyed doing it. Every time she
touched my face I relaxed further into the treatment.
She spoke just enough to let me know what she was doing next,
without interrupting my peacefulness.
All of her products were completely organic, and like Irina, gentle on my skin and good
at their jobs!
like heaven, right? Well I
really went to paradise during the last half hour of the facial when Helen came
in. Irina continued the facial, and Helen began the foot reflexology. During
this last half hour I found it difficult to stay conscious enough to be able to write this
review. My body and mind simply wanted to check out.
It was rough, but I managed! When
Helen worked on certain areas of my foot, I felt different parts of my body
I felt the positive effects of the reflexology in my lower back, my stomach, and
even my sinuses. And of course, my poor feet just loved it. The
pressure and smoothness that Helen used was perfect.
I slid off that table I felt
like a child. I was giddy, relaxed,
and not completely in control of my body! I looked in the mirror to see that my face was awakened.
I felt lighter and brighter and my face felt softer and smoother than
I can ever remember it being. I
was promptly served another cup of tea to sip while I got dressed.
While I was dressing I realized how relaxed I still was.
Not only in my body, but my mind.
Whatís even more amazing is that it stuck with me.
The whole walk and train ride home, making dinner, straightening
up, and checking my email I remained in this euphoric state of relaxation,
happiness, and complete calm. The true sign of a great
spa experience is when you are able to take the relaxation all the way
home with you. I only wish I could take Irina, Oksana and Helen home with
