Best Stress Reliever

  • Morocckin’ Massage at Just Calm Down

    32 W. 22nd St., 212-337-0032

    Ignore the silly name. The newest massage at this mellow Flatiron spa starts on a heated, rose-petal-covered water bed, with fragrant candles flickering and dim lights setting the mood. The therapist, Claire Mullen, works over your body using a yoga-based approach; she’ll gently push your knee to your chest, stretch your arms above your head, and give you the most thorough, knot-eliminating massage imaginable. You may leave a bit sweaty from the heated bed (there’s no shower), but your limbs feel like pleasantly limp spaghetti.
