1.  Deep Tissue Massage – Rather than a classic massage that simply feels great, deep tissue helps relieve chronic pain, injuries, postural problems, muscle tension and more. Deep tissue massages use deeper pressure and slower movements than classic massages, focusing on areas of tension and pain. Relax was New York Mag’s pick for the best deep tissue massage in the city, but don’t let the name fool you… this is made for the tough girls. 716 Greenwich Street – 212.206.9714

2. Floatation – The ultimate in relaxation, during floatation you peacefully drift atop water that is saturated with mineralized salts. Floating rejuvenates the brain and skin, lowers blood pressure, and increases circulation. Head over to La Casa Spa to try it out. 41 East 20th Street – 212.673.2272

3. Body scrubs – Use body scrubs to eliminate dead skin cells, exfoliate and reduce cellulite.
