Healing From Above

The New York City skyline has undergone major changes in the last few years with more to come. New skyscrapers are popping up throughout the tiny island of Manhattan each boasting better views of the cityscape far below. Penthouses also afford lucky residents and guests the chance to get above it all and escape the stressed-out streets.  A few hotels have taken advantage of the healing power of heights with spa services that help spa-goers relax. InkSpa at Ink48, a Kimpton Hotel has renovated the Heaven Over Hell (starting at $3,000 per night) penthouse suite and invites guests to spend time amongst the clouds transforming their bodies and calming their minds with inclusive services, a custom Kimpton yoga mat, meal from Print restaurant, and additional snacks. Spa in the Sky at Ink48 treatments include:

  • Heavenly Suite-ment (80 minutes) – The all-inclusive facial peels away the dead surface cells and reveals a more uniform complexion. The treatment continues with an acu-lift facial massage to promote healing and restore balance.
  • Celestial Restoration (50 minutes or 75 minutes)– It combines the popular Re-Boot and Footprint massage therapies to release the tension and stress in the head, neck, and shoulders with a thorough massage pinpointing these areas and Chinese reflexology.
  • The HALO Effect (80 minutes)– Inspired by the thalassotherapy spas in the Brittany Coast of France, this full body wrap nurtures the mind and body. It begins with a full body exfoliation with thermal mineral sea salts followed by a mineral-rich organic seaweed masque to detoxify and replenish the body of missing healthy nutrients. During this nourishment, experience a relaxing acupressure facial massage and scalp massage to alleviate pent up tension.
