After all that holiday hubbub, don't you deserve a bit of relief? Take a load off -- and get a fab hour-long massage for a mere $50. That's right, we've persuaded some of the city's top salons (which usually charge as much as $95 for massages) to offer S&B readers a discounted massage until the end of the month. Just mention this page when you make your appointment (and bring it along for your visit), and remember, only one rub per salon.
Dorit Baxter Day Spa will give you an invigorating one-hour Swedish massage, with the option to upgrade to a deep-tissue rub for an extra $5 (47 West 57th Street; 212-371-4542).
Body Central, a Union Square newcomer, is offering the Chaos Control hour-long massage, which includes acupressure and deep-tissue techniques along with an aromatherapy treatment (99 University Place; 212-677-5633).
D.Esse Spa will treat you to either a soothing French Lymphatic Drainage massage with essential oils, geared toward detoxifying and regenerating body tissue, or the 45-minute Eucalyptus Sinus Treatment, a gentle crystal massage of the back and face (350 Hudson Street; 212-206-1655).
Sal Anthony's Movement Salon specializes in traditional Swedish massage, and many there are also trained in Shiatsu and Thai massage (all of which are included in this offer). Ask for a rundown of options when you call (190 Third Avenue, near 17th Street; 212-420-7242).
