Priti Organic Spa (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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
