Located in a part of Chinatown with more acupressure charts than Peking ducks, Top Beauty Skin Care Center isn’t exactly a standout. (It’s hard to stand out when you’re at the back of a jewelry store.) But just beyond the jade bracelets, a back door leads to a dim communal room with three spa tables topped by homespun Chinese blankets. Facials are performed here, though you should know that Mimi, the aesthetician in charge, barely speaks English. To the left is a smaller private-treatment area run by Max K.K., a kung-fu master who formerly worked in action movies alongside Jackie Chan. Nowadays, Max offers reflexology, acupuncture, and tui na.
