Nomad Health & Beauty

Establishment neighborhood
Madalaina Conti
400 Park Ave. South 32C, NoMad
Every facial from Madalaina Conti really delivers. The esthetician specializes in inflammatory skin conditions and integrated wellness, so her treatments incorporate modalities ranging from gua sha to radiofrequency, microcurrent, buccal massage, and more. She’s best known for the Synergistic Signature Qi Facial, a treatment that uses 24K gold-plated micro magnets to create an electromagnetic matrix that helps sculpt, depuff, and repair. It’s brilliant for all skin types, but especially fantastic if you’ve got sensitive or blemish-prone skin.
Le Parlour
245 Fifth Ave. Ste 12, 3rd floor, Nomad
This Black- and woman-owned spa is known for its almost-unbelievable results, whether you’re getting a basic microdermabrasion or a more serious laser treatment. The secret? The staff personalizes a plan for every client, to tackle truly any skin issue. It’s sleek and modern and filled with high tech tools in a way that feels very French (the founder was inspired by her time living in Paris). You leave with clearer, smoother skin and more informed about skin than ever.
Sundays Nail Studio
51 E. 25th St., Nomad
The manicures and pedicures here are consistently good—spectacularly shiny for days, crisply applied, plus the brand’s eponymous line of clean, non-toxic (vegan and 10-free!) polishes has the best colors. The restorative treatments—the heavenly 3-in-1 Guided Meditation + Hand Treatment combines a manicure, essential-oil massage, and meditation, while the supremely pampering Rose Extract Anti-Aging Hand Treatment mixes a coconut-milk soak infused with rose petals, aromatherapy massage, and manicure. (The Rose Extract Anti-Aging Foot Treatment is just as reviving.) The studio itself is hygge central—airy, sleek-yet-cozy, potted-plant adorned—a place where we’d happily while away the day.
Tony Leroy
1115 Broadway, Nomad
Besides being a gifted intuitive who is particularly helpful around questions of life path and purpose, though he is very forthright about the fact that that life path might not have shortcuts. He does monthly group workshops in New York focused on everything from guided meditation to group intuitive work (often, each attendee emerges with a drawing of how Tony sees your energetic body that you may as well frame and hang), and he comes to Los Angeles about four times a year to deliver the same.
