Financial District Health & Beauty
45 John St., Financial District
If you’ve never had a massage dedicated to relaxing the muscles in your jaw, forehead, scalp and entire face…it’s insanely relaxing. FaceLove’s three signature treatments—FreshLove, PureLove, and WholeLove—all focus on massage, exercise, and acupressure to stimulate circulation and release inflammation. Not only will a clenched jaw or furrowed forehead feel miraculously released; you’ll emerge looking pretty amazing, too.
Rise by We
85 Broad St., Financial District
WeWork—the round-the-world network of comfy, breezy (decidedly un-corporate) workspaces rented out to people and businesses—has always been an ideal HQ with its meditation rooms, retreats, and fitness class offerings. And now with Rise by We, its new holistic wellness club in NYC's financial district (more locations to roll out down the line), the brand’s dreamed up a respite from the swivel chair where you can get up and move in any number of workout classes (from kickboxing to yoga to personal training sessions), as well as stoke some serious relaxation vibes at their Superspa. There are steam and sauna rooms, amazing massages, a circulation-rousing cold water plunge, and a communal—and coed—hammam area. The spa’s café makes killer juices—and come evening, healthy-ish cocktails. And if you can’t commit to a full-on membership, Rise’s $100 four-class access pass option is a solid option.
185 Greenwich St., Financial District
This family-owned company was founded in Bordeaux, so their entire approach to beauty is grounded in a less-is-more, great-skin-first approach that feels very French. They're famous for a menu of super-relaxing facials—which can be selected to target anti-aging, radiance (and correcting), firming, moisture, and detoxification—but their New York boutiques also offer three body treatments, like a Bordeaux-inspired vine wrap. We're partial to their express facials, which, at just a half hour, can easily be squeezed into a lunch break; pretty clutch for their new, office-convenient location in the Financial District.
