The Peninsula Spa (New York City) recently debuted the Peninsula Sleep Ceremony by ESPA ($550, 2 hours), which was created for The Peninsula Hotels by ESPA founder Sue Harmsworth to help globe-trotting travelers and stressed-out locals get some shut-eye. Performed in a peaceful candlelit room, the treatment begins with tailored breathing and meditative techniques to release anxiety. Guests are then treated to a hot stone massage that focuses on marma points to release deep muscular tension and clear out any toxins. The experience concludes with a facial cleanse and a relaxing scalp massage. “Sleep tends to often be forgotten as an essential element in our overall wellbeing, especially when it comes to maintaining a healthier, stress-free state of mind,” says spa director Enid Fernandez. “The Sleep Ceremony recognizes that a rejuvenating night’s sleep is an essential part of preserving good health and continuous relaxation, as it aims to retain a high quality of slumber and alleviate the disruptive patterns and deprivation that can lead to those restless nights.” For ESPA products: us.espaskincare.com.
