Priti Organic Spa (CLOSED)
Time Out says
If you’re into sleek minimalist interiors, Priti probably isn’t for you. The snug East Village spot has eco-friendly bamboo floors, deep-purple walls and hand-carved furniture. But the staff here should please anyone.
After pouring me a cup of green tea, my technician, Michael, led me to a small candlelit room for a facial ($120). I have delicate skin, so I’m apprehensive about using anything harsh. Michael customized a treatment; the spa uses only Dr. Alkaitis Holistic Organic Skin Food products, and the ones he chose consisted of fruits, shea butter and organic oils. He gave my face a deep-pore cleansing, an enzyme mask and extractions with steam, followed by a neck massage to die for.
Next, a pedicurist soaked my worn-out feet in a sensual bath full of organic-geranium essential oils ($30). After a gentle scrub and leg massage, I finished up by having my fingernails and toenails painted with nontoxic No Miss polish ($10). The Sanskrit word priti has many meanings, such as “attraction,” “pleasure” and “satisfaction”—all of which I felt when I walked out the door.—Courtenay Kendall
