It's June and summer is almost upon us. In the spirit of R&R and hitting the 'reset' button, we thought we would highlight five great ways to rejuvenate yourself. From an "anti spa," to the perfect after-work cocktail, check out our top five picks for renewal and rejuvenation in the city that never sleeps. 

1. Physical Advantage

If a fancy day spa isn't your thing, this place is for you. Physical Advantage takes a no-frills approach to massage. The massage therapists here are less interested in scented candles and dim lighting than in helping heal your body. Broadway dancers and professional athletes are frequent visitors. Sessions are available in 30, 60, and 90 minute increments. If you want to fix your back, neck or any other physical problem, we highly recommend you go here. 

For history buffs, the spa was once owned by a woman that went by the name of Madame Spivey and called the place Spivey's Roof. It was a nightclub where gay men and women could go and be "almost" out during the '40s.

This luxurious spa has been around since 1828, when Pierre-Francois-Pascal Guerlain opened his first boutique in Paris.

The Guerlain Spa, located on the 19th floor, with stunning views of Midtown Manhattan, provides a completely cocooned, en-suite experience with luxuriously appointed treatment rooms, each with adjoining private bath and changing rooms. Click here for more information.
