Flatiron Health & Beauty
Health & Beauty neighborhood
37 E. 28th St., Flatiron
Adele is an expert in Chinese medicine, and treats ailments using a variety of approaches including herbal medicine, medical massage, acupuncture, and cupping. Beyond her gentle approach, it's her kind and wise manner that makes an appointment with her extend beyond healing—we always learn a lot, too.
Aimee Raupp Beauty
928 Broadway, Flatiron
A facial here involves amazing acupuncture, collagen-infused masks, ghee-powered face oils, and, perhaps most incredibly, face cupping. Practitioner Aimee Raupp, besides waking up your entire face (your whole body feels good after a treatment), can talk to you about diet, hormones, and many other aspects of women’s health—her book on fertility and pregnancy, Yes, You Can Get Pregnant, was a bestseller, and she has a new book on health and autoimmunity coming out next month. Her treatments were a huge hit at the recent In goop Health Summit for a reason—they are absolutely transformative.
Amanda Kloots at Bandier Studio B
164 5th Ave., Flatiron
Trainer and former New York City Rockette Amanda Kloots brings her love of staying in shape—and having fun along the way to three of her signature hour-long classes—the Dance, the Rope, and the Body—at Bandier Studio B. The Rope focuses on high-energy jump roping (it burns 10 calories a minute while toning your body) and her easy-to-do-at-home moves include everything from standing side crunches and jump overs to stability lunges. The Dance zeroes in on what Amanda does best—and the constantly changing cardio dance sweat session ensures it never gets too repetitive even if you drop into class a couple times a week. She uses the see-and-follow method for guiding you through class, which sounds intimidating, but totally works. Her latest offering is The Body, which is modeled after her private classes—it's a mix of upbeat dance moves, plus a toning series on the mat. (Be prepared to s-w-e-a-t.) If you're not in NYC, there's an entire section of her site dedicated to streaming the workouts here.
Eden Fromberg, D.O.
16 East 40th St., Flatiron
Operating out of Holistic Gynecology New York, Dr. Fromberg's roots are in yoga, midwifery, nutrition, and botanical medicine, meaning that if you're in search of a more alternative path to childbirth, she makes a great choice.
Eleven Eleven Wellness Center
32 W. 22nd St., Flatiron
Dr. Frank Lipman and his team of excellent doctors, health coaches, and nutritionists take everything from nutrition to stress to exercise and lifestyle choices into account. In kind, the treatments here are just as wide-ranging: Everything from accupuncture to nutritional counseling is offered and all health issues are treated with a multidisciplinary approach. In the end, many of the solutions offered here involve learning better daily habits for prolonged, sustainable wellness.
1130 Broadway, Flatiron
An appointment at this no-frills day spa (there are five throughout the city) is wonderfully personalized: You choose the duration of your treatment (thirty, fifty, or seventy-five minutes) and set your goals with your skin therapist. Every treatment comes with a deep cleanse, exfoliation, custom mask, and hydration, then ends with sunscreen protection (the fifty- and seventy-five-minute options also have extractions). Upgrades include peels, microdermabrasion, and light therapy, and if you need monthly treatments, there is a membership program. Bonus: Appointments are available until 9 p.m., making an after-work facial actually doable.
Ling New York
12 E 16 St., Flatiron, New York City
Founder Ling Chan has an incredibly healing touch (she got one goop editor’s breakouts significantly under control), and her menu of facials addresses absolutely every concern, especially congestion. With organic malic acid peels, careful extractions, LED light, and soothing ginseng moisture therapy, Chan and her team restore balance to stressed skin holistically. The whole experience is heightened by the beautiful kimono they give you to wear in place of the usual sterile white robe. There’s also a Facials Bar, where clients can get under-an-hour treatments like the Collagen Eye Mask and Radio Frequency Face Lift.
Marie Robinson Salon
155 5th Ave., Flatiron
One of the most gifted colorists in the world, Marie Robinson and her large team of top makeup artists, colorists, and stylists staff this busy, lofty salon in the Flatiron. The clean lines and earth tones make the place a serene reprieve from the stresses of city life, even though it’s jam-packed at all times. Marie herself, in the salon with full days of appointments, is hard to miss; she’s the one with the absolutely impeccable icy-bleach blond cut (often with the perfect tinge of roots).
Olivier Bros, P.T.
286 Fifth Ave., Kips Bay
Trained in physical therapy, osteopathy, homeopathy, and acupuncture a session with Olivier Bros involves a combination of these practices—what's called a manual holistic technique. You generally need a prescription to see him but it is so worth it.
Ophira & Tali Edut
39 W. 14th St., Flatiron
We first discovered Ophira and Tali Edut (otherwise known as the AstroTwins) through their fantastic book, Momstrology, an insightful guide to understanding and dealing with your kids through astrology; we devoured their Love Zodiac next. Their site, and own-brand imprint horoscope books and ebooks, including their popular annual horoscope guides, are all incredible resources. We met with Ophira for an individual session, where she connected by drawing up astrology charts, giving deep, unexpected insights into all parts of life.
