Opened shortly after 9/11 by Hungarian-born Laszlo Friedman, Le Cachet offers a virtual catalog of holistic and high-tech spa treatments for men and women. With white walls, glossy wood floors, and steel and crystal light fixtures, the front room packs in four Jacuzzi pedicure chairs, a manicure station, and a mini salon that offers cuts, color using low-peroxide dyes, Japanese straightening, and ethnic hairstyling. But it’s in the space’s nether regions—down a long hallway and inside ten brick-walled treatment rooms—where the more exclusive services take place. Two private showers boast adjoining clay-tile steam rooms aromatized with fresh pine branches. Hair removal, massage, and a slew of wraps—Dead Sea mud, chocolate, herb, and seaweed—happen here, too. But the most complex body service has to be the RejuveThermal Cocoon, which has clients lay inside a giant podlike machine and get steamed, oxygenated, and blasted with pure micronized seaweed in order to detoxify and rejuvenate tired skin cells. The spa also specializes in high-tech facials that focus on damaged, aging, or acne-prone skin; head esthetician Julia Friedman may employ tools like the Jet Peel pure oxygen and saline machine or the non-toxic Crystal Peel microdermabrasion system. Le Cachet uses only spa-grade skincare products—Eminence, OLOS, G. M. Collin—and graciously sells them at near-wholesale prices.


Each treatment room is equipped with its own CD player, and clients are encouraged to bring their own music.

Le Cachet offers monthly specials on selected packages and services, which are listed on their website.
