Oasis is New York’s homegrown day-spa mini-empire. Born in the mid-nineties from a family-owned chair-massage business, the day spas are now known for their effective, on-target skin and body treatments. Though offerings vary a bit from spa to spa, the menu at Park Avenue—the largest location—features practically every service you’ve ever heard of, including over a dozen varieties of massage, special packages including an Instructional Couples Massage, and a long list of facials utilizing the Dermalogica line. A variety of body scrubs and wraps, a full-service hair and nail salon, waxing (including Brazilian bikini), and sunless face and body bronzing are also available here. Dark, quiet, and featuring a large relaxation area, this location is popular with those looking for a one-stop shop or couples’ services while the location inside the Affina Dumont Hotel has a fitness center that offers personal-training sessions. — Cathay CheBridal Package
