How Do You Earn Your Breaks?

More so than in any other place in the world, the people of New York City are always on the move. For some of us, it’s just our speed; others of us are dreaming of a slower pace. Love it or hate it, though, there comes a point where you just have to slam on the brakes and say, “ENOUGH!

Maybe it’s work that’s got you this busy. You worked through lunch three days this week trying to finish off a big project that your job depends on. Your computer is making that weird noise again and have to sit there and watch while Dave from tech support takes another look at it. When the day finally ends, all you have the energy to think about is browsing Reddit until it’s time for bed.

Maybe it’s home life. After all, we all know that’s not always as relaxing as we’d like it to be:

Convos with my 2-Year-Old

Or maybe it’s just all those little things that build up. Maybe your alarm clock never went off and you had to skip breakfast. Maybe the doors on the E train closed right in your face after you sprinted in heels to catch it. Maybe your usual coffee place mixed up your order and some other random person is drinking the iced mocha latte that should have been yours.

Whatever your week looks like, we’re willing to bet you can use a break. Leave that to us– undoing bad days is our specialty!

We know stress wears us out psychologically, but it’s much more than mental fatigue. Over time stress shows itself more and more physically as well, building up in your muscles and causing discomfort that can lead to injury. So that coffee you spilled on your new blazer is more than just a mild annoyance– you carry it around with you wherever you go. The remedy? A Vada Spa massage. Time to knead out your stressful week so that next week will be that much better. Relax with us!

Living in New York can be taxing. So whether you’re a long-time resident here or you’re only taking your first bite of the Big Apple, don’t forget to take that break! After all– living in the city that never sleeps doesn’t mean you can’t rest once in a while!

WAXING VS LASER hair removal

 Waxing Vs. Laser Hair Removal
At Vada Spa, we offer both waxing and laser hair removal treatments for our clients. Whatever your preference, we at Vada, a New York City Day Spa, are able to accommodate your needs, whether you opt for laser hair treatment or Brazilian hair removal! 
In order to make an informed decision between waxing and laser hair removal, here is some information that may help smoothen your procedure.
Blogger Lizz Shepherd of DailyGlow, lays out the pros and cons between the two methods of hair removal.
A waxing procedure is a painful method of hair removal that lasts longer than your average shave. Waxing will prevent unwanted hair from growing for several weeks, but you will find yourself back in the spa in a month or two to wax it all off again.
Laser hair removal is also painful, but is a considerably more permanent alternative to waxing. When a client chooses to undergo a laser hair removal procedure, he or she should expect four to six sessions over a few weeks that will greatly diminish hair growth permanently. You can expect 80 percent of your hair to be gone in weeks.

At Vada, we use the Elite MPX laser, the newest in the Cynosure Elite laser line. The Elite MPX laser allows us to tailor our sessions specifically to your needs, and still be cost and time effective! It is designed for all skin types and can treat almost everybody.

End of Year Party, Good Bye 2012, HELLO 2013!!!!

The year seemed to wiz by without much distinction.    We ran a fraction of daily deals, Groupons, and such.  We saw our Yelp ranking go down undeservingly and yet things were OK maybe even good.  Ira slaved and labored over some excellent food for everyone, ploff, salads, and other great creations she made all by herself for the party.  Thank you Ira for being such a great chef.  Mary made her potato manti which were very delicious as well.

Thank you to all of our employees for making Vada one of the better spas in the West Village.  Also our clients for whom we exist and are very happy to serve.  Thank you to everyone that works or goes to Vada Spa.

Good Bye 2012 and HELLO 2013, we are ready to make 2013 as easy as possible!!

Rejuvenate Your Skin this Fall


     As your skin soaks up the beautiful rays of sunshine all summer long, it is left craving rejuvenation during the cooler fall season. There is nothing like the rewards of moisturizing to rid away the inevitable dry skin to come. Take a day off and head over to New York City’s top day spa Vada Spa and Laser Center for a luxurious skin rejuvenating treatment.

Until November 30, guests at the day spa will receive 30 percent off when they put in “easyautumn” at the checkout. This discount applies to the spa’s Autumn Package, including a 60 minute Swedish massage, manicure & pedicure with cranberry scrub, and a complimentary glass of white or red wine.

The last thing that you want is to greet a fellow friend with a handshake with tremendously dry skin. The fact remains that dry skin is not only unappealing, but incredibly uncomfortable as well, causing irritation and pain. While daily moisturizing will take care of minor dryness, it is essential to provide deep hydration to the skin with a treatment at this NYC day spa.

The Autumn Package at this NYC day spa is a soothing experience for both the hands and feet. Starting with a cranberry scrub lets the skin exfoliate, riding itself of pollutants. Once the exfoliation is complete a mask is applied to hydrate and moisturize the skin, bringing out a new glow! Once the treatment is complete you will leave with smooth, silky and completely rejuvenated hands and feet.

Give your hands and feet a break so you can feel good about your skin. Pick up this great Autumn Package Special at premier NYC day spa Vada Spa and Laser Center today!

While NYC’s top day spa Vada Spa makes luxurious treatments simple with their great location and weekly specials, they are also continuously taking relaxation one step above and beyond. Walk into this premier day spa and its wide variety of beauty services, including a selection of holistic therapy treatments. While used to heal medical problems, holistic therapy is a great way to relieve stress by tapping into the physical, mental, and emotional levels of your body.

Vada Spa offers a great selection of holistic therapy treatments, including:

Acutonics – Sound Healing Therapy

Using sound vibrations to heal the body, sound therapy can be both an energetic and harmonic healing process. When your body is completely harmonious, it functions better, regulating your breathing, supporting the body’s organs, and thereby working to prevent disease. The body’s energetic pathways (or meridians) are able to be accessed through holistic therapy using both touch and sound to relieve chronic conditions.

Energy Healing

A sound vibration using a combination of sound healing therapy, Tibetan bowls, and tuning forks and chanting is applied directly to the body, allowing the client to receive manual adjustments. This light touch applied over a cloth balances out your aura and energy field. Many clients report feeling restored and rejuvenated with a general sense of well-being.

Raindrop Acupressure and Reflexology

A unique holistic therapy, this treatment uses both raindrop acupressure and Vita Flex reflexology. Using essential oils, a number of drops are applied to different areas of the body, including the hands, feet, head and back. The benefits received by this treatment are almost immediate, such as relaxation and elevated mood.

Reconnective Healing

For complete relaxation and rejuvenation, this form of holistic therapy goes beyond your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. As you interact with the energies used during the treatment, you will begin to feel the healing process. This is a truly unique experience, done while fully clothed and resting comfortably.

Reiki Energy Healing Treatment

A full, natural healing treatment, this therapy reduces stress, promoting a deep relaxation and overall well-being. This is a complete treatment, intended not only to relieve pain, but to assist with balancing your emotions, enhancing your mental clarity, and promoting creativity, personal healing, and spiritual growth.

More than your average day spa in NYC, this day spa is a complete beauty and relaxation facility. For more information and and prices on holistic therapy, visit the Vada Spa website.

Teeth Whitening & Beauty

It is simply miraculous how a quick beauty fix like teeth whitening can completely change your look. Now that Vada Spa offers teeth whitening along with their other beauty services, you only need to visit one place to get the ultimate makeover perfect for the summer!

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures nowadays, and can give you that dazzling white smile you’ve been dreaming about. The Vada White Pearl system is the latest advancement in spa teeth whitening technology. The White Pearl technology was specifically developed by dentists in Europe to use in spas and is FDA approved. Teeth whitening is clinically proven to be safe and effective for everyone.

The White Pearl system at Vada Spa is a self-administered cosmetic teeth whitening system, perfect for removing stains caused by coffee, soda, red wine or smoking. The whitening process is centered on the teeth that are visible when you smile, and not the molars and back teeth. After using this system, teeth will be 3 to 10 shades whiter in just 10 to 20 minutes.

Now you can have a radiant smile without any pain! Teeth may be sensitive to hot or cold foods and beverages and should be avoided for a few hours after your treatment. As always, you should avoid smoking or other foods and drinks that can stain your teeth for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

While having your beautiful smile is amazing, you will want to maintain it throughout the summer season and beyond. Vada Spa recommends coming in two to three times a year for maintenance. A whiter smile is closer than you think and at Vada Spa you will always leave looking great and smiling with confidence.

Vada Makes It Easy!


Hair Extentions, Weaves and Doooo s

Just in time for spring, Vada Spa and Laser Center will transform your hairstyle into a fabulous new look. With a professional team of hairstylists, this West Village salon will enhance your natural beauty. Among their team members, is hairstylist and extensions extraordinaire, Erin, who has been styling hair for over twenty years.

Great Lengths hair extensions are available at Vada Spa. All of the hair extensions are made from 100 percent natural human hair. There is no other extension system that uses this non-compromising technique of attaching additional strands to your own hair. Erin uses this system to perfectly match your hair color so you or your friends can’t tell you have extensions in the first place. All Vada Spa extension treatments include a shampoo, cut and style, as well as removal of previous extensions if desired.

Along with extensions, Erin is trained in Keratin Treatments, Heat Bonding, Cold Fusion and Micro Braids. Giving your hair a smooth and silky look and feel for months, a Keratin Complex will eliminate that dry, frizzy style. Using a special adhesive and whole wefts (curtains of hair used to layer into your own hair) as opposed to individual strands, Heat Bonding is perfectly matched to your hair and is guaranteed to look great.

Braids are in style and at Vada Spa, Erin has perfected the Micro Braid hair weaving method where tiny braided foundations are made and wefts are sewn into your hair in a way that doesn’t add a bulky appearance. With such small foundations, you can wear your hair in different styles without discomfort. This method is available for all hair type adding length and fullness to thinning hair. Pricing for braids starts at $50 per track or $300 for a full head.

A new method, Cold Fusion uses a keratin-based polymer to attach extensions to the root of your hair. The absence of heat makes this treatment perfect for fine or thin hair, along with a more natural-feeling hair due to the polymer flexibility. This treatment can last up to six months, adding length and fullness to your style. A three hour and partial treatment costs $700 and a full six hour treatment costs $1,300.

With the latest in hairstyling techniques, Vada Spa and Laser Center is expertly equipped and staffed to give you a one-of-a-kind look this spring.

Another reason why everyone say’s-  “Vada Makes it Easy!”
