NewYork magazine's profile / Sarah Walker
Supple Spa came to be after its founder detected a lack of—and high demand for—day spas for couples. Located steps from Sixth Avenue, the spa's cheerless entrance serves as a vivid contrast to what's inside: Past the hushed and dimly lit reception area, behind paper screens, potted orchids, and live topiaries, is a lineup of private rooms, each with its own romantic theme. The Paris Room, decorated to resemble a Parisian terrace, is set up for side-by-side massages; the Daydream Room offers the same, with a sauna and a pair of step machines; and the Sunset Room is a small lounge area with double mani pedi massaging chairs and a karaoke machine.

Technician Jasmine began with a light massage through a body-covering towel, to gauge my muscle tension.

When I rose from the table, my muscles felt like they’d just received the same benefits as I’d get from an intense workout—without putting in any sweaty time at the gym.
Why it’s worth it:The heated massage table left me warm for the entire wintry walk home, and the vigorous kneading kept me relaxed through the next day.—Alison Zeidman
