Upper East Side Health & Beauty

Establishment neighborhood
Crystal Greene
903 Madison Ave., 4th Floor Walk-up, Upper East Side
Get a facial with aesthetician Crystal Greene at her serene Madison Avenue studio and walk out looking—and feeling—fantastic. Her treatments are a beautifully pampering haze of face massage, firming laser (she uses the obsessed-over LYMA), gentle exfoliation, powerful masks, and a custom blended serum infusion she concocts on the spot for clients’ specific skin concerns. She’s intuitive, radiates calming energy, and her hands—not to mention the results you see—are pure magic.
Aman New York
730 5th Ave., Upper East Side
A giant indoor lap pool set about with cushy chaises is where you wait for your treatments at this sleek, chic, Bergdorf- and Central-Park adjacent hotel and spa. They offer just about everything: Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling, total health resets with functional doctors, sessions with visiting wellness leaders, special “Banya Houses” where couples or groups can spend the day getting treatments together, access to plastic surgery services, vitamin and NAD infusions, cryo-therapy, and much, much more. The Advanced Aman Facial, which uses all Aman products specially made in Japan, combines ultrasonic exfoliation, electric muscle stimulation, face and scalp massage, cryo bulbs, a marine mineral mask, and Aman x 111Skin Nourishing Gold Algae hydrogel face and eye masks for the glow of your life.
Erika Bloom Pilates (Closed)
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.
Georgia Louise
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.
