This Sunday is Mother’s Day and we can think of no better way to spend a day with Mom than to indulge in some pampering and relaxation. After all, there is nothing that your mom deserves more than some time off to kick her feet up and take in a beauty treatment or fabulous massage, and there is no one who she’d rather enjoy that time with than you! We’ve selected a few day spas in New York City that are particularly perfect for a Mom & Me Spa Day this weekend. Here are a few suggestions:
Spa Martier – Conveniently located in Midtown East this luxurious spa location offers modern treatments like the Nano-Silver Facial – silver is coming to be known as one of the best natural anti-bacterial agents. The spa also offers a sumptuous 24kt Pedicure, a treatment fit for a Queen (or your Mom)! And next door , you’ll find the adorable Caffe Martier where you and Mom can share snacks or a light lunch.
