The Ling Spa in Union Square is a delightful contrast to its environs. Outside, the bustling area is jam-packed with office workers, shoppers and delivery trucks. Inside, a more peaceful haven could not be found than this minimalist but warm, Asian-inspired spa. The spa’s energy lift facial is a treat indeed, a service that includes heat therapy and a triple peel. The charcoal facial, designed to detox the skin from impurities, uses charcoal as a powerful exfoliant, removing virtually all dead skin cells. In addition, the spa has recently introduced its new 60-minute Energy Lift Acupressure Massage with Hydration Infusion Therapy. The massage starts with moisturizers from the Ling New Body collection (body balms, bath oils), followed by the energy lift acupressure point massage. Tourmaline gemstones are used to emit negative ions and far-infrared rays, which are known for their powerful detoxification properties. So, go ahead and glow.
