Salon and Spa Directory: Auriga Spa at Setai Fifth Avenue

Relaxation. Rejuvenation. Treatments based upon the varying energies of the lunar cycle. If you're curious about that last part, then you simply must head to Auriga Spa at Setai Fifth Avenue for one of the most luxurious spa experiences in New York.

I came into the spa during the waning moon phase, which meant I was treated to a 180-minute treatment that focuses on deep cleansing the system. Yes, 180 minutes -- that's three full hours! This treatment included dry brushing, a seaweed wrap, a full-body lymphatic drainage massage and a mini purifying facial.

Now, if I told you I felt like a puddle of jello after this treatment, would you believe me? Three hours of complete and total relaxation, in addition to the fact that the treatment room was huge and serene, and my therapist had magic hands that lulled me to sleep, were all I needed to completely detoxify my system and get me ready for the year ahead. (Because, yes, I received this treatment on my birthday!)

The amazing treatments aren't all you'll be able to experience at Auriga Spa. The spa includes a massive coed lounge area complete with whirlpools, a Hammam steam room, and two of the most incredible showers I've ever seen -- replete with music, a light show and rain shower heads coming at you from all directions. I want one in my house!

If you're looking for the ultimate in pampering and relaxation, the Auriga Spa is most definitely worth checking out. The spa also offers a la carte massages, wraps, body treatments and facials. The only problem is, you won't want to leave!
