Equinox Spa
140 East 63 Street

You know you’ve had a grade-A pedicure when you emerge with your feet both pristine (including under the nails)and baby-soft, a challenge for sure in New York, where we spend so much time pounding the pavement. Equinox begins with a whirlpool foot bath, which contains massage grooves for relaxation; next comes a thorough cleansing, clipping, and scraping, seriously attacking callouses; followed by a salt scrub for exfoliation and a dip in hot paraffin wax for extra softening. A foot and lower-leg massage is thrown in for that spa hit, and finally polish is applied. Now you’re ready for those Manolo Blahniks.
