We all know who said, “Life is like a box of chocolates… you never know what you’re going to get.” Well, Forrest, in the world of spa treatments, we know exactly what to expect from a box, or a tub full. Chocolate has been shown to have some miraculous effects, from stress relief to body contouring to elevating your mood. So, while eating chocolate is oh-so-delightful; why not go the calorie-free route and dip yourself in it? We’ve got a list of five spa treatments in New York City that will leave you feeling like you’ve experienced the chocolate Midas touch.
1 Chocolate Delight Body Wrap at Madison Spa
2 Hot Chocolate Foot Scrub at Yelo Spa
Chocolate all over your feet may not sound particularly appealing, but the Chocolate Foot Scrub from Yelo Spa is the most luxurious of add-ons to their foot reflexology treatment. It's a great excuse to spend an extra 15 minutes in their zero gravity chair, underneath a cashmere blanket and enjoy as your therapist covers your feet in a chocolate shea butter scrub. It will leave your little feet smooth and refreshed.
3 Full Body Chocolate Wrap at Le Cachet Spa
Le Cachet gives you more than a glass of hot cocoa to warm you up. Their delicious body wrap based on cocoa helps contour your body while smoothing skin and eliminating stress. The "Chocotherapy" has an anti-cellulite effect (and we all love that!). Cocoa increases your endorphins which makes you both happier and better at metabolizing fat on your body. So wrap yourself in something delicious and nutritious!
4 Double Chocolate Pedicure at Bliss49
Getting your feet all chocolate-y may sound a little strange, but this treatment is about as sweet as it gets. For an hour, your feet will be pampered to the max with a hot chocolate milk skin-smoothing soak, and then of course on to the perfect pedicure. You also get to nibble on some super delish chocolate while you wait for your toesies to be primped into deliciousness.
5 Hot Cocoa Mani/Pedi at Haven Spa
Anything with a chocolate-y twist sounds good in our book and the Hot Cocoa Manicure and Pedicure at Haven is their classic spa pedicure a little extra sugar. The treatment includes a cocoa soak, delicious scrub and cocoa butter moisturizer, all of which are sure to make your mouth water as your are polishing up those nails.
