Less is more at Suite Retreat, a mini-spa offering a pared-down menu of facials, Shiatsu, colonics, and waxing from its eighth-floor space in an office building near Grand Central. A devoted clientele swears by the intimate spa’s down-to-earth practitioner, Shiatsu/colonics therapist Rose Siano. In the mellow middle room, Siano performs both traditional Shiatsu and the gentler Ohashiatsu on a Japanese-style mat, intuitively zeroing in on what type of stroke and level of pressure each tense muscle needs. There’s often a month-long wait for her deep-cleansing colonics (performed in the more clinical third room), which she calls “taking out the garbage” for your body; a Foundation Cleanse package of six is recommended for best results.
