YELO - URBAN SPA - tip NYC


A friend of mine told me about this place in NYC and I am dying to try it. It sounds great!
Check it out:


"YeloSpa was created and designed to be a sanctuary to help urbanites deal with the pressures of modern life through a unique combination of spa and wellness treatments.

Upon arrival you are immediately wrapped in a warm and peaceful color scheme inspired by the robes and sash of Tibetan Monks. Sip artisanal tea from a floating Lantern and refresh with a scented hot towel as you embark on your Yelo journey.

Your session takes place in a cocoon-like treatment room called the YeloCab where you can completely customize your aromatherapy, sound and lighting and enjoy a mini-vacation in the heart of New York City.

Whether experiencing a Yelo Reflexology or Nap session in our zero gravity Yelo Chair or rejuvenating your mind and body with a Swedish Massage and Glow Facial, you will emerge feeling revived, refreshed and balanced."

As soon as I try it I will let you know how good it is! :)


UPDATE:

I Went to visit Yelo Spa! WHAT A TREAT!
Being a big Spa-goer (I admit, I am a spa addict) and a snob at it (I can turn into a not so nice person if the treatment I get is not up to my standards) I have to say that I was most pleased with my experience at Yelo. From the moment I walked in I felt welcomed and my visit started on a good note. I was psyched to try what they call the 20/20 which is 20 minutes of shoulder or foot massage followed by 20 minutes of YeloNap. The session takes place in a cocoon-like treatment room called the YeloCab where you can customize your aromatherapy, sound and lighting.

I laid back on a zero-gravity experience YeloChair where my knees were lifted above my chest allowing for my heart rate to slow down. I was told by my therapist that his helps to induce a deep state of relaxation. And indeed it did. After a very relaxing twenty minutes foot massage, lights went off and I felt as if I was transported to another dimension.

Twenty minutes later the cabin began to lighten (the gradual lighting simulates the sunrise) and it was time to go back to reality. But now fully rested and relaxed.

I can’t wait to try the other treatments at Yelo! I loved everything about this place. It is a very unique SPA with a great concept.
