Cognoscenti know one thing separates a $75 facial from its $175 counterpart, and at Escape, the clientele is more concerned with skin benefits than plush surroundings. Experienced Romanian- and Russian-trained aestheticians, many of whom have worked together for twenty years, devote their intense professional attention to facials, massages, body treatments, and manicures, with products by Dermalogica, the San-Mar cosmeceutical line, or Dinur from Israel (made with Dead Sea extracts). Expectant moms can indulge in prenatal massage or aromatherapy, with deep-tissue massage and spine-relaxing hot-stone applications also available. Clearly, owner Emilia Borcan‘s regulars-heavy clientele is willing to skip the eucalyptus steam rooms, juice bars, and reading lounges of the fancier spas for an extra hundred bucks in their pockets.


Escape Spa offers three-service packages for $99, such as a mani-pedi with 45-minute massage or facial. In addition, clients enjoy discounts via five-treatment series.
