Exploring NoMad: Eat, See And Play
Book an appointment at the newly-opened Modrn Sanctuary, located in the heart of the NoMad neighborhood. Leading health and wellness entrepreneur, Alexandra Janelli, started this luxury wellness center to bring leading practitioners in traditional and alternative medicines, therapies, and treatments to the Big Apple. The 5,000-square-foot space is lined with black, crocodile-textured walls along with beautifully sculpted imported antique Balinese doors and dark wicker seating. Make sure to check out the Himalayan Salt Room (one of only four in the city) that is used for halotherapy. Guests can sign up for a variety of treatments, including acupuncture, cupping, holistic skin care, reiki, Thai body work, and more. You can even work with a life coach, take part in a Family Constellation session, or learn about past life regression. This place definitely has it all.
Now you can turn any ordinary water into alkaline antioxidant water with the DYLN bottle. The VitaBead Diffuser sits in the bottom of the bottle, transforming your lifeless water in just 15-20 minutes. This refreshing and hydrating form of water has less acidity than your average tap or filtered water and also helps restore balance to the body. Plus, it helps minimize plastic waste. This stainless steel water bottle with bamboo cap and colored silicone sleeve is available to order online and costs $46.
