You know I LOVE my spas and my spa treatments. Normally, I travel to other locations to experience the best spas and find the latest treatments like in Ft Lauderdale at the Grand Resort and Spa (which I need to do again this spring!) and I’ve been to Grail Springs in Canada but I really wanted to find a space here in NYC where I could escape, relax, and recharge. I actually searched for a while in between my trips to the others but never found a good one here until last year. I finally had the good fortune of finding Hush Men’s Spa in Manhattan!
I’ve been there countless times for massages and body scrubs and I recently added eyebrows, hair removal, and glorious facials. Let me tell you a little about the space and the services.
First of all, Hush Men’s Spa is located near Times Square on 47th Street but don’t let that scare you. Once inside the first floor apartment, you are in a total zen, peaceful, and quite space. I know, you don’t believe it’s possible.. but, it’s true! You don’t hear any of the outside noises, you are greeted with friendly faces, relaxing music, and aroma therapy. They got everything right from the lighting to the ambiance, and customer service. You are always offered water, a chance to use the bathroom in case you have traveled there, and I have rarely had to wait for my appointment. Actually, thanks to NYC subway schedules, I think I have been a few minutes late here and there. The best part is, just like the Grand Resort and Spa, Hush is for men only so you don’t have to feel like you are using a female spa and you can be free to relax comfortably.
There are three spa rooms where massages, body scrubs, hair removal (sugaring and waxing), and facials are done and there is one bathroom with a full shower so you can leave all fresh and clean.
The staff is completely professional, friendly, knowledgable, and amazing at what they do. I tend to ask lots of questions when I’m trying new places but they have been more than accommodating in answering and teaching me a few things.
I’ve had massages, eyebrow shaping, and facials from Julio who seems to always know what I need before I ask. I tend to carry my stress in my neck and shoulders but when I leave there, I’m good until I go to work again haha. During my facials, I always ask about what is being used, what I should use, and how I should use the products suggested. Julio is always willing to answer, offer advice, and discuss. He even suggested coloring my eyebrows and lashes since they tend to get so lightened from the sun. I’m totally taking him up on that very soon before one of my upcoming events. Guys, when was the last time you spent a full hour cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your face? When was the last time you used steam on your skin? Trust me, do it!
I’ve also received massages and body scrubs from Louis, who really takes massages to another level because he has definitely mastered the art of energy work. If you are aware of energy, you will feel it for sure. I’m telling you, there are times where he just puts his hands over a spot that is troubling you and without physical contact, you FEEL the pulse of energy working through your muscles. If you’ve never experienced it, it may be hard to imagine but trust me, it is powerful. He also has this habit of infusing good energy into you all through the massage so you leave feeling extra good and ready to tackle anything. And of course, the body scrubs are so soothing, plus so good for your skin. We don’t usually pay enough attention to the skin on our body like we do to our face and hands. It feels good to let someone else do that for you. He’s also so good at answering any questions you have and since he’s a wiz with the energy, he tends to know what’s up even when you don’t remember to tell him.
No matter what service you get, you always leave feeling better. It’s so important to take that time for yourself and so often, we don’t even realize how long it’s been since we allowed ourselves to just chill. You don’t have to book a big trip to do that if you live in NYC, just head to their website and book a treatment or call! If you’re planning a trip to NYC, make sure to make this spa a part of your itinerary. You will thank me for it!
