If you want a relaxing, soothing and peaceful encounter you must visit Monica. The new Soho space on Grand Street is truly a hidden gem. I have had her famous facials that have been incredible with results lasting for weeks. The experience itself is worth touting; you are not rushed in and worked on in shifts. You are the only client and she is completely focused on you regardless of the service you are getting. Monica has a healthy list of services and she is 100% at all of them. Monica has a calming aura and while you are there you are transported to somewhere other than the hustle and bustle of NYC. For flawless glowing skin you must go to Monica. She has her own serums and will custom make something specifically for your needs. My eyebrows have never looked better and I would not trust anyone else. Make an appointment, go once, and I guarantee you will be hooked. I am thrilled that I found her! The new Soho space is just wonderful.

Monica Waters is a gem and true healer of beauty from the inside out. Her facials are one of the most divine experiences on the planet. Besides the fact that my friends have told me I look 10 years younger after my first facial, I felt renewed and inspired to manage my beauty from the inside out. The experience was deeply relaxing and she has a wonderful space beautifully lit and decorated like a temple. The facial was a profound experience and she uses all natural products with and extra touches to enhance the deep cleansing and rejuvenation. Monica's healing energy is infused throughout the facial in a very non invasive manner that allows one to deeply relax and transcend the every day cares and worries to a more peaceful state. The benefits of her facials continue to help me to care for my beauty in a wholistic way which incorporates natural foods, positive living and an organic skin care regime. Monica is truly the most exquisite aesthetician in NYC and probably the country. I highly recommend this experience and continued care with her for a wholistic approach to beauty that will last a lifetime.

Monica Watters & Sacred Touch - A Higher, More Expansive Experience

Monica Watters at Sacred Touch New York is hands down, the best there is at what she does. As the Director of a Spiritual Center in Miami, and former of one in New York, I am always keeping an eye open for exceptional talent that is gifted at being able to address root cause issues at an energetic soul level. From the moment I first met Monica I knew she was the real deal. My reflexology treatment was beyond amazing - it not only resolved a sinus problem I was having, it put me into such a peaceful state that I was energized and ready to go back to the gift of helping others. My visits with Monica became regular, and in each and every one she gave fully of herself, of her craft and of her essence. I have hired Monica Watters for retreats, workshops and special events, and have referred my friends, colleagues and congregants without hesitation, and I will continue to do so. I highly recommend Monica Watters and Sacred Touch for any of her services. If all you are looking for is someone to squeeze your pours or rub your feet, go to the mall, it will make more sense to you. But if you're looking for that and something more - for a truly sacred connection; where access to your soul is made through your skin; where the worries of the chattering mind slip away like clouds passing by; where your magnificent face and skin will radiate forth a new and fresh beauty that can only come from within your open heart and mind - Monica Waters at Sacred Touch. Hands down - hands down.

THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!

If you're looking for an amazing treatment (I can't even call it a facial, since it's a whole head to toes experience) you can stop now! Sacred Touch is the place where you want to be pampered forever! What's more important it's holistic, organic, natural and healthy!!!!!!! I have been seeing Monica for my facials and don't want to try anyone else! Products smells so delicious, I get so tempted to just lick it off my face! The extractions are never harsh and my skin never looks irritated when I leave. Aside from Monica's technical skill, she is just awesome. Extremely friendly, passionate about what she does, and very focused on making you comfortable. ohhh one of my favorite treats that I get every month is an oxygen facial...you have to try it!!!!!!!

I have been going to Monica for over 20 years, and her treatments and deep cleansing facials have given my skin a total glow. I must say that I always get comments on how great my skin looks and want to know what my "secret" is. My "secret" is Monica, no botox, no fillers, just a holistic natural skin regimen and Monica's antiaging techniques and machines. She totally researches and takes courses on all her new methods, and I totally trust her to give me the BEST of the best that is out there in the market today. I feel that she gives me individualized attention to what my skin is going through at the time of my visit with her, and she suggests what kind of treatment I need. Her treatment room is relaxing and she will spend as much time as she needs to finish, she will not rush you out. I also love her little tarot reading at the end, when you are totally relaxed, she will give you time to get up and on your way, so she will do a little tarot reading. Anna

Simply...THE BEST!

I met Monica through a mutual friend 10+ years ago. Since then, I have become a regular client of hers. Without a doubt, she provides the BEST facial I have ever had. Her facials are full service - for example, she does not leave the room to take a phone call when you are steaming (like many do!) - rather, she is working on you the entire time. I see her routinely every 4-5 weeks, and when I leave her, I feel cleansed and rejuvenated. Living in a dirty city like NY, where our skin is subject to the daily grut of city living - I never breakout and it is a rarity to ever get a pimple or blemish on my face. She has taken amazing care of my skin and it has paid off. Monica is also incredibly caring and will take time to help you with any ailments you have or nutritional questions - her knowledge of food and our bodies is incredible. She is simply the best and truly cares and loves what she does! She inspires me to live a clean and healthy life!

A Facial That's Magical & Healing

By Kleen on 8/20/2012

I had the good fortune of learning about Monica Watters' treatments years ago from a mutual friend. It was one of the best tips I've ever received. Here in NYC there's no shortage of places you can go for facials and beauty treatments. I have visited other practicioners over the years and was always disappointed but didn't know that I could expect more. I'd leave with blotches all over my very sensitive skin by over-zealous facialists who didn't know how to calm and treat the skin I came in. Monica is a true journey-woman or "skin-whisperer". I couldn't believe after the 1st time after I saw her, I looked better than when I arrived, truly glowing! She's also deeply kind & non judgmental, with a truly great sense of humor. That personality helped me to leave my city-armoring at the door and experince a deeper sense of relaxation and healing. It's a pleasure whenver you cross paths with a person who is aligned with what they're supposed to be doing in this life. Monica charges for facials, but what she gives is so much more.
