Upper East Side Health & Beauty
Erika Bloom Pilates
14 E. 60th St., Upper East Side
To give you the best sculpt and tone in the business, Erika Bloom Pilates has three New York locations, one in Connecticut, and a new studio in Los Angeles. Each space is flooded with natural light, making it a relaxing and—oh yes, we’re going to go there—fun workout. The studio’s knowledgeable staff curates personalized routines that borrow from Pilates, yoga, Alexander technique, Feldenkrais, and weight training. There are also programs for pre- and postnatal women, osteoporosis, injury prevention, acupuncture, bodywork, and holistic health consulting.
Tracy Anderson Method 59th St.
241 E. 59th St., Upper East Side
This brand new, 6,000-square-foot studio addition to Tracy's empire (other locations include Tribeca, Watermill, and Brentwood to name a few) offers the full Anderson experience from the dance-based and muscular structure workouts, to food, to athleisure wear. Built into what was a former movie theatre, this unique space houses two cavernous, temperature-controlled workout studios, a street-level café—beyond convenient to pick up that pre-class organic coffee or post-workout fueling smoothie—and the full range of Anderson's athletic wear. Hosting group and private classes, the full spectrum of options from membership to drop-in are available—but, for those who can't make it to the studio, don't stress, you can stream the live classes from the comfort of your own home.
114 E. 71st St., 1E, Upper East Side
Louise’s skincare philosophy is straightforward—energize skin cells, tone muscles, and stimulate the lymphatic system—and translates to treatments that include stem cell application via micro-needling, firming galvanic current, exfoliating dermaplaning, and acupuncture facials. Every session, whether it's a cryo facial or a radiofrequency session, starts with an in-depth consultation. There's a lengthy waitlist to get in with Louise herself, but a session with a member of her team is an exquisite, skin-perfecting experience.
Maria Radu Skincare
24 E. 64th St., 3rd Fl., Upper East Side
Maria Radu sticks to a no-nonsense, European approach, which also happens to get great results. Not only is she the go-to for anti-aging and rejuvenating treatments, she's been known to work miracles on acne-riddled skin.
Laura Schiller, M.D.
62 E. 88th St., Upper East Side
Dr. Schiller knows everything about women's health and is a wonderfully reassuring doctor to see when you're pregnant (or wanting to be). In fact, she contributed her wisdom to a goop issue on postpartum depression.
The Juhi Ash Center
800A Fifth Ave., Ste. 205, Upper East Side
Dr. Richard Ash, who tragically passed away in 2015, has set up an enduring integrative medicine center in New York City, where you'll be shepherded through an extensive series of tests. After they'll create a totally customized, preventative, and restorative roadmap to optimum health. While it's not necessarily about detoxing, their steps to a healthier lifestyle often involve just that.
Jennifer Salzer, D.D.S.
553 Park Ave., Upper East Side
Dr. Salzer is one of our favorite dentists, thanks to her gentle, nearly painless procedures. She specializes in Invisalign braces, clear braces, and clear wires, rapid orthodontics, early intervention, surgical orthodontics, and TMJ.
Mark Hochburg, D.M.D.
192 E. 75th St., Upper East Side
Dr. Hochberg has made what kids dread the most an outing they look forward to. It all begins in the lobby: Kids can play in an arcade full of games while they wait. Somehow, Dr. Hochberg makes the appointment that follows as painless as possible.
119 E. 83rd St., Upper East Side
Friends rave about Angella Kulangi and her results-oriented facials, as she takes everything—diet, exercise, water quality, and current skincare regime into account when she's evaluating skin. She also custom-blends products according to the time of year. Apparently, it's magic.
Louise O’Connor Salon & Spa, 33 E. 61st St., 3rd Fl., Upper East Side
While you can find the Suvara formula at various spray tan spots around the country, founder Anna Stankiewicz is the woman to see, and she works out of the Louise O'Connor salon on the Upper East Side. (She also does house calls all over the city.) In addition to giving a radiant glow, she's known for her slimming body contour effects and her Skin Rescue Therapy, an all-natural vitamin spray.
