The dog days of summer have been here for a while now — thick air in the mornings, languid afternoons. The grit of the city in summer is something else. While I’ve been hitting the A train to Rockaway Beach pretty hard this summer (I swear my feet have worn a groove in the heat-softened asphalt between my house and the Nostrand stop), I’m aware that skipping off to the sea, sneaking in these little breaks, is not something the vast majority of city-dwellers do on a regular basis. It can be hard to find the time, and not everyone lives so close to the A train.
With August upon us, in the hottest year on record to boot, we all need a little break. Even you. Maybe even especially you. How about a mini-vacation right here in the city? Cut out of work early (you will be so much more productive after your break), head to Brooklyn if you’re not already there, and get a massage. If you’re feeling extravagant, you could follow it up with an afternoon coffee or treat around the corner on Franklin or a gander at the daily offerings over at Scratch Bread. There’s a city pool nearby, too. And amazing yoga right there. All sorts of delights. Take the afternoon to take care of yourself, quiet the hubbub in your head, get out in time to greet the evening refreshed.
To facilitate your mini-staycation, I am offering a discount: $80 for your weekday afternoon massage (more specifically, a one hour massage on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday) through the end of August. That’s $20 off the regular rate, just because I love vacation so much that I want you to have one, even if it’s just for the afternoon. Mention the discount when you book, and let me know if you want suggestions re: evening classes at Sacred, small indulgences, or other ways to round out your afternoon. Or just come in for a massage and do your thing for the rest of the day. Either way, it’s going to be great.
