Skilled reflexology treatments in a soothing and aromatic environment. – The Scene
Nestled below street level on a quiet West Village street, this cozy center has just two stations--consisting of comfy, pillow-laden armchairs and footstools--ensuring a personalized and attentive session for each client. Angel Feet offers half-hour and hour sessions, as well as discounts for a series of five or ten treatments. Home and office calls can be arranged for lower Manhattan up to 50th Street.
After cleaning feet with hot water, warm towels, and a camphor-lavender-alcohol mixture to disinfect and deodorize, therapists steadily knead away at each foot, stimulating nerve endings and trigger points. Not your typical foot massage, reflexology benefits the whole body by both relaxing the client and working points that correspond to every major organ and muscle group. Angel Feet therapists, well-trained and board certified, are expert at tailoring treatments to suit individual needs.
