If hoity-toity spas rub you the wrong way, this low-key alternative may be for you. Housed in a remodeled vintage apartment, the space is more akin to a relaxing holistic home than a clinic. Choose from basic services such as manicures and facials, or go for a reiki treatment or seaweed body facial. Our pick: the Siddha Body Detoxification massage ($150), which starts with a brisk dry brushing of skin, progresses to a full-body wrap and head-to-toe massage, and concludes with you practically melting on the table.
