Since 1994, eco-conscious Brooklynites and expecting moms in need of kneading, facials, and body wraps have flocked to Providence Hogan's organically focused spa. Exposed brick, high ceilings, and rotating art displays give the place a gallery-like feel, while extras like an aromatherapy-steam shower room and heated treatment tables elevate it above other storefront wellness shops. Herbal facials are skillfully executed using organic products from Starflower and Naturopathica, and each one incorporates a slow, soothing face rubdown. Hogan began her career as a massage therapist and has retained many clients from early on. Prices start at $60 for 30 minutes and are consistent whether the style is Swedish, deep-tissue, or sports. Hogan also works as a doula—a professional who offers emotional support and guidance to women during and after pregnancy—and she is especially attuned to the needs of new and expecting moms: The staff teaches labor and infant-massage techniques, and babies younger than 12 weeks can accompany moms to their treatments on weekdays.Spa Parties
The staff grants clients who book eight hours' worth of treatments exclusive use of the spa for private events like bridal-shower parties.
