16th Arrondissement Health & Beauty
Marie-Laure Herdan, M.D.
17 Rue Pétrarque, 16th
Dr. Herdan is gentle and English-speaking, making her our go-to opthamologist.
Eric Sedbon, M.D.
17 Rue Petrarque, 16th
Admittedly, nobody really wants to go to the gynecologist while on vacation, but should you be taking up residence in Paris (or find yourself in a bind), Dr. Sedbon is our go-to.
Nail Factory (Closed)
147 Rue de la Pompe, 16th
While you won't find expertly-executed nail art or a deep menu of luxurious add-ons, you will find well-priced, quick, and totally decent mani/pedis. The three locations are essentially indistinguishable. There are also locations in the 7th and 17th.
14 Rue Piccini, 16th
Offered in a traditional hammam setting that will lull you to sleep, the Thai-style massages here are the best in the city. The private rooms come complete with showers, and a candle-lit Jacuzzi. There's an additional location in the 4th.
1 Rue de Boulainvilliers, 16th
Vaulted stone ceilings and walls (vestiges from its first life as a 17th century wine cellar) may not immediately channel comfort and warmth, but the flagship Nuxe spa is balanced by any number of tropical flourishes, like palm leaves, rattan, and a cozy pool for Watsu (there are multiple outposts in Paris). The gentle, plant-based Nuxe line never gets any complaints from us either, particularly when administered during a soothing facial. There are also locations in the 8th, 1st, and 9th.
