Spa Week is a bi-annual event that allows New Yorkers to tone and clean their skin and experience the luxury of being pampered. Every April and October, hundreds of spa and wellness locations across North America provide two to three full-service spa treatments for just $50 each.
Here at t2c we have been trying some of the amazing offers and are here to tell you about what we think is the best and what you can experience.
Over at Faina European Day Spa, a private retreat in the heart of Midtown Manhattan at 330 West 58th Street #402. I experienced the Body Polish & Body Massage, which is normally $140.00 for 60 min, but for Spa Week it will only cost you $50. This full body exfoliation of dead skin cells, increases circulation and improves skin tone. You get a choice of the following scrubs: Lavender, Brown sugar vanilla, Peppermint Sugar, Chocolate Mint. I choose brown sugar vanilla. What was interesting, is in all my writing and exploring, I had never experienced a body scrub. I have to tell you, I am now addicted. Fay has the most healing hands I have ever felt. I was actually very embarrassed to do this, since my surgery has left my body nowhere near where I’d like it to be. From the moment Fay started applying the scrub and swirling it around my body, I was purring. I felt my energy, which had been stuck and blocked, opening up to allow me to flow. That alone is why you should rush over to Fiana’s.
This is one sensuous treatment, so if you do not like being touched, you may have a problem here. Nothing is sacred, but in that regard, I was freed from the hatred of my body. I felt honored and treasured by Fay and because of that I could honor and treasure myself. Body scrubs are a miracle in that sense. After the scrub you are ushered into a shower to clean yourself for the next step. As the shower steams off the scrub the aroma of the treatment surrounds you. You will notice just how soft you are as your skin glows.
Next up was the 30 minute European body massage by Timi. I liked Timi a lot, but my body is rather sensitive from all that has happened to it and Timi spent to much time on my neck, which has left it sore. In a sense this was my fault, as I felt the pain during the massage and should have said something, but I was too embarrassed to speak up.
It is four days later and my skin is still soft and has that faint smell of vanilla.

I highly recommend Fay and her body scrubs that will leave you baby soft with a renewed sense of self. After all isn’t that what spa treatments are about.
