This post is in partnership with Red & White SPA Midtown.
I received a massage in exchange for a review.
All opinions are my own and do not express the opinions of Red & White SPA Midtown.
New York is big and full of many spas and options for massages. I’ve had my share of good and bad, in lush day spas to no-frills shops. But if it were up to me, I’d treat myself to a luxury day spa. Of course most luxury day spas cost an arm-and-a-leg for treatments so I don’t treat myself often.
I was invited to visit the Red & White SPA (39 West 56th Street) one morning to try their signature 50 minute massage. I’ve visited the Red & White Spa on Prince St. but it was my first time visiting the Midtown location. This location is bigger compared to the Prince St. location and offers a range of services including massages, facials, eyelash extentions, laser hair removal, and nails.
Checking in was simple and was seated in their large waiting room next to the nail salon. It wasn’t long until Karina, my masseuse, came to get me and escorted me to the treatment rooms upstairs. She asked how I was feeling and if there was any parts of my body that I needed more attention on. I’ve always had tight traps and shoulders so I mentioned that, but overall I was looking to just relax.
The treatment room I was placed was decent-sized and on par with some of the rooms I’ve been in at other spas. As I was getting ready for the massage, I noticed oils on the counter and was hoping that they had been placed there for my treatment. The massage was one of the better ones I’ve had and I felt so relaxed during it, almost falling asleep at some parts! Karina took note about my traps and shoulders and did her best to ease the muscles, placing hot towels to help loosen them up. I felt as if Karina did a complete scan of my body and paid special attention to the areas that needed more help than others. Towards the end of the treatment, she took the oils and had me do a few breathing exercises. It was simply incredible.
I love that Red & White SPA Midtown feels like a luxury day spa without the luxious cost. All the treatments at Red & White SPA are at great prices and they offer some hard-to-beat deals throughout the year. Speaking of deals, if you’re interested in visiting Red & White SPA Midtown they’re offering 40% off a massage treatment to all my friends & readers! When booking by phone, just mention my name “Mariel Mendoza“ for your discount. If you visit the spa, let me know how you like it!
