April is National Stress Awareness Month and although we like to think of #DTJax as an exciting, fast paced place to live, work and play, it’s also a mecca for relaxing and calming things to do. So we’d like to change up the pace and offer a few suggestions about where and how you can clear your mind, destress and take care of your body in #DTJax.
Natural As I Wanna Be (NAIWBE) Spa
NAIWBE’s owner, Sylvia, is one of the most knowledgeable people in her profession (you can read all about her in an upcoming Q&A this week). She tells us that taking care of your skin and nails is a vital part of staying healthy and stress-free. Treat yourself to a pedicure, facial or massage from some of the most experienced staff in town. NAIWBE even carries their own all natural, locally made products! We love the Lemongrass 3-step System. Check out all they have to offer.
Marilyn Monroe Spa
The Marilyn Monroe Spa in Brooklyn is one of the newer spas in the area and you can tell by the modern, trendy decor inside! Not only is the spa itself beautiful but the services are top notch and the environment is relaxing. They pretty much do it all – pedicures, manicures, massages and waxing all at a reasonable price. They even have a rewards program that rewards you with free and discounted services! Read all about it.
Free Yoga at Unity Plaza
Yoga is known for it’s relaxing, physical and mental health benefits. Not only is it a great way to unwind and connect with yourself but it is a low-impact but effective workout. Sometimes getting started can be tricky or expensive but Unity Plaza offers FREE yoga three times a week for people of all skill levels. Not only are the people awesome but the view is beautiful too. You can even enjoy a drink or some dinner at Hob Nob or Brixx afterwards! Check out the schedule and details.
Recovery Zone Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy has endless benefits for both the body and the mind. It treats many things like chronic pain, depression and fatigue and even offers some anti-aging benefits. It’s become so popular because it’s quick (2-3 minutes per session) and the results are noticeable almost immediately. Elite athletes made cryotherapy popular but now we have our very own cryotherapy center in Brooklyn! Learn more and book an appointment.
