Get Me Bodied

The posh neighborhood in Brooklyn known as Clinton Hills has a hidden treasure, Body by Brooklyn Spa. Not only does Body by Brookyln Spa perform spa treatments, but they offer a lounge with a full brunch/lunch and bar menu. On special occasions, they will also accomodate social events. This up-and-coming spa specializes in massage therapy, facials and various body treatments. This Sunday I decided to indulge in the dead sea salt body scrub, because New York's winter weather can be really harsh on my skin. The treatment duration was a long and relaxing 60 minutes for only a $110. The results were smooth and silky skin. Most spa treatments in the city start at $150, so I knew that I was getting a great deal. My friend enjoyed the Swedish massage that left her feeling blissful and rejuvinated and it only cost her $90. After we indulged in our treatments, we decided to sit in Body by Brooklyn's large chic lounge, while enjoying cinnamon french toast and sipping on mimosa. So next time you are in Brooklyn and want to treat yourself to a new spa atmosphere, consider Body by Brooklyn-there aren't too many places where you can enjoy a massage, have lunch and cocktails all in one location. The spa is not train accessible so its best to drive to the spa. http://www.bodybybrooklyn.com/
