After honing her holistic-treatment skills in her native Hong Kong for three years, skin-care guru Cecilia Wong opened her original spa off of Union Square in 2009. Now the haven has relocated farther north—to a sleek, larger space outfitted with raw cement walls, leather couches and oversize windows. Sip a complimentary cup of tea before sampling one of Wong’s gentle facials that use products from her own organic skin-care line. Try the skin-brightening oxygen facial ($175), which includes an enzyme peel, lymphatic drainage and black-currant serum-infused oxygen spray, or the signature Lift and Shine facial ($250), which uses microcurrents and ultrasonic LED lights to encourage circulation in the face and combat aging. Keep your visage glowing between visits by picking up items from her eponymous line, including refreshing toner mists ($32), exfoliating milk cleansers ($42) and moisturizers infused with licorice root and pumpkinseed oil ($68).
