Namaste
We’re pretty sold on this concept: Namaste, a self-titled “wellness concierge,” will send massage therapists, personal trainers, yoga teachers, and the like to your home or hotel room through one quick email or text—even for same-day, last-minute appointments or corporate retreats. They’ve spent more than a decade looking for the best practitioners around, a Rolodex rigor that means you won’t be disappointed. Prices are commensurate with what you’d pay in a nice spa ($150-$250/hr), but with the convenience of an at-home treatment. They currently serve New York, The Hamptons, Palm Beach, Aspen, Connecticut, Los Angeles, and San Francisco—plus all the corresponding ‘burbs. If this is the wellness model of the future, we couldn’t be bigger fans.
Lauren Roxburgh
Lauren Roxburgh is a bit of a body whisperer. Trained as a structural integration practitioner, Roxburgh will take you through a Rolfing-like sequence of 10 sessions where she realigns your entire body by manipulating the fascia, releasing the areas where we all tend to hold stress (the jaw, the diaphragm, and the pelvic floor) in the process. She can, quite truly, make anyone look and feel taller, thinner, and more connected—and she has a Rolodex of professional athletes to prove it.
