At my local hair salon, getting my hair done for ANOTHER summer event. A quick look at the mirror proved that the heavy layers of makeup couldnÂ’t cover the stress, tiredness or my 'adult acne' anymore. Before I left, the salonÂ’s owner, handed me one of MonicaÂ’s biz cards. I had no idea why, but I trusted her to see that IÂ’m not my usual self and went with the flow. On my first appointment, soaking my tired feet in warm lemon & mint leaves water, in one of the most relaxing room I have ever seen. Monica asked, what seemed like very casual questionsÂ…than, while lying on the bed and smelling the natureÂ’s aroma, I got the best facial, healing and reflexology treatment EVER. On my way home, I was walking on clouds, it is something that you must experience to understand. A couple of treatments later I actually started to feel the change all over. Balance, clear looking face and A fresh energy that showed in every field OF my life. Thank you Monica for helping me get back the control on my health, my look and my life.

Quality of service and personal care - that is so rare today

Monica has been caring for my skin for the last 15 years, and I have never wanted or needed to go anywhere else. No other facial could compare. She is so committed to you, and she tailors her services to your needs. Monica is knowledgable, thorough, and gentle. You feel so happy to put your skin in her hands, and let her cleanse and replenish your pores. I also have to add that her reflexology is heavenly. I've given it as a gift to people who were very skeptical about reflexology (as opposed to a full body massage) and they've loved it ... and returned for more. So, enjoy Sacred Touch when you go!

Beauty is wellness-inside and out.

Monica embodies the definition of beauty today-from the inside out. She cares for my skin, and nurtures my soul. She also can make me laugh! Time spent with Monica is something that I treasurer. She has a wealth of experience that she shares freely! I can't think of another facial experience that compares, or that encompases the scope of the treatment at Sacred Touch..

A True New York Treasure

I have been a client of Monica's for 4 years and consider her to be one of New York's treasures. Monica takes an holistic approach to beauty care addressing the needs of body, mind and spirit so after an appointment one feels beautiful, relaxed and regenerated from the inside out. The quality of treatments has to be experienced to be believed. Monica trained at a top salon before setting up on her own and over the years has supplemented her traditional beauty study with study into a wide range of alternative therapies which she incorporates into treatments as appropriate. Treatments rarely stay within a strict definition, even something simple like an eyelash tint can incorporate reflexology or a hand treatment and longer treatments like facials are a whole other category. Monica is a wonderful person and 100% dedicated to her clients. I cannot recommend her highly enough. This is an experience not to be missed.

I hated facials until I came to Monica. She not only improved my skin dramatically, but also made me feel extremely relaxed and cared for on each visit. She lavishes attention on her clients, and one leaves her chair feeling both outwardly and inwardly beautiful.

The most blissful facial ever

I was never a big fan of facials and used to get one maybe once or twice a year. Then I met Monica a few months ago and she made a believer out of me with just one session. It was unlike any facial I had ever had. She tended to me literally from head to toe, balanced my chakras, and even read tarot cards. I felt like I had spent 1/2 day at a holistic spa. And my skin looked and felt fanstastic immediately after the session and even better in the following weeks. I highly recommend adding 1/2 hr reflexology to any facial treatment. It's a treat.

Simply the BEST ever!

Monica gives more than a facial it's a spiritual experience. I have had thousands of facials over the years, so I believe I am qualified to say that Monica is simply the best! Every time I go to her I walk out glowing...I don't have to wear make-up for days because my skin looks amazing. I wish Monica came in a bottle and I could take her home to use daily.

Monica is a GIFT to us all. She truly loves her clients and treats them with such care. Going in I knew it would be special - but I had no idea it would be life changing! She is incredible! My face feels spectacular, and my whole body and spirit feels rejuvenated. I am about to tell all of my friends about her so you better book her fast because she will be SOO busy after I get done bragging about her!!! Thanks Monica!!

Monica's touch is truly sacred and her facial offers you a get-away without the get-away cost! You wake up to her final sacred touch and soft voice and you simply float away into the belly of the beast. Love it and you've got to try it. Otherwise you have not lived to experience luxury! --kim

Monica Watters...one of those best kept secrets in New York City.

I went for my first facial ever to Monica Watters Sacred Touch new space in SoHo (137 Grand Street) without any expectations on what this amazing experience would be. I am an artist with "little" time for my face besides, shaving and the usual bar soap cleanse. Monica applies a combination of reflexology, soothing sounds, heavenly scents, skin oxigenation and of course her signature "sacred touch", bringing about a harmonious and rejuvenating liveliness to the senses. I never tend to my face in such elaborated manner and the experience with the stunning Monica Watters was certainly enlightening. My face is literally glowing, noticeably smooth and since the treatment I am paying more attention to care for it in a more conscientious way. Such an invigorating experience...thank you Monica!
