With the daily hustle and bustle of New York City, it’s nice to take a break and get a much-needed massage. New Yorkers can find an urban retreat atCityTouch Licensed Massage Therapy, located in Chelsea.
CityTouch is an exclusive private practice that offers tailored massages and a personalized environment. Rob Gonzalez, the founder of CityTouch, and Brandi Ryans are the only massage therapists at CityTouch, and that’s all you need, as they only serve one client at a time. Personally, having the place to myself made me feel more relaxed and at ease.
Before settling in for the treatment, the client fills out a short questionnaire to help the massage therapist customize each massage to the client’s needs. From muscle-specific deep tissue treatments to a relaxing traditional Swedish massage, CityTouch massage therapists work with each client to provide the best experience based on their goals.
Another perk, aside from the fresh water and dried fruit, is the electronic charging table located in the massage room. Plug in your cellphone, iPod or laptop and let your devices recharge while you do.
Other treatments include a Detox Restorative Body Treatment that rejuvenates the body by targeting troubled areas such as work-related stress and hangovers, a prenatal massage to release the tension of expectant mothers and reflexology to soothe aching muscles and encourage self-healing.
