To wrap up our spa series, we found two dramatically different spa resorts on the East Coast, and we can't decide which atmosphere we like better! Spoil yourself with a massage in New York City's Upper East Side, or venture to the countryside of Western Massachusetts. Either way, you won't be disappointed.
Your hubby refuses to go for a couple's massage? Treat yourself to an even better personal one, and send him to Kiehl's Spa 1851 in New York City. The Kiehl's skincare product line has been around for 160 years—they know the drill by now, so we promise he'll enjoy it. Specializing in men's facials, masks, and serums, this spa has an old-school feel with murals and '40s-inspired art. It also has a mini barber shop!
Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, is a luxurious spa haven tucked in the Berkshire Mountains. Admire the beauty of New England while being pampered with a massage, body scrub, or facial. This 100,000-square-foot spa resort has a sauna, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and multiple sports facilities to keep you busy before and after your treatments. Athletic spa-goers will love the "Healthy Feet" program, which offers instant relief from shin splints, heel pain, and other ailments.
