Tribeca Health & Beauty

Health & Beauty neighborhood
Aire Ancient Baths
88 Franklin St., Tribeca
Tucked away in Tribeca, this is one of New York City’s best spa secrets—which also happens to look a bit like the Temple of White and Black from Game of Thrones. You descend via a candle-lit stairway into an equally moody space with many baths and steam rooms (all sorts of different temperatures, from hot to ice-f-ing cold to a sublime extra-salt version where you float like you're in the Dead Sea), where you’ll likely be content to hang out for a while. They also offer really great massages—some of Manhattan’s best, actually.

ONDA Beauty
117 West Broadway, Tribeca
Larissa Thomson was a fashion editor in her previous life, so her take on clean beauty is one of the more gorgeous we’ve ever seen. Everything from the Vintner’s Daughter and Tammy Fender to True Botanicals and...goop skincare! is beautifully laid out and easy to shop for. The treatment rooms are stunning—we want the wallpaper, the mirrors, everything. There are cool workshops, but talking to any of the staff—including the fantastic Larissa herself—is a workshop in and of itself: They’re incredibly knowledgeable and super-friendly.

Shibui Spa
377 Greenwich St., Tribeca
It’s always an effort to sit up after a massage, but it’s nearly impossible to wrench yourself off the table after one of the transporting treatments at the onsen-modeled oasis that is The Greenwich Hotel’s Shibui Spa in Tribeca. The Japanese aesthetic—lanterns softly illuminate the heated pool in the main lounge area and embellish the treatment rooms, low-slung day beds, guests padding around in the best-looking Japanese Yukata robes—sets a tranquil, removed mood that’s instantly anxiety-dissolving. Prepare to be smoothed down in replenishing botanical oils that leave your skin a thousand times glowier than you’ve ever seen it. During the Drunken Lotus massage, essential oils are worked over every inch of your body, then tired muscles are stoked back to life as they’re enveloped in hot, sake-soaked towels. The seasonal aromatherapy bath soaks are over-the-top and can be added on to any treatment—think you (or you plus your better half, if you opt for the couples soak), in a tub, steeping in healing ginger-infused waters.

Sky Ting Yoga
381 W. Broadway, Tribeca
While we loved the original Chinatown location, Sky Ting's second space in Tribeca is as dreamy a spot to shop as it is to workout. The merch spans adaptogenic powders from Moon Juice, products from health mecca CAP beauty, and one of our favorite new beauty lines Benshen (founded by fashion journalist-turned-yogi Desirée Pais, who, frustrated with the current market started whipping up herbal skincare out of her kitchen). Aside from the roster of yoga classes (for those of us working all-day al-desko try the restorative class for deep hip-openers and stretching), this new airy space has the added benefit of a built-in infrared sauna to maximize the post-sweat glow.
