After spending the weekend walking Midtown I really needed this. The place was clean the people friendly. I got a 30 minute foot and leg massage. I went to the Hell's Kitchen location at 889 9th Ave. came out walking on air!

Fantastic massage! No fuss rooms but brilliant massage technique. Very firm and lots of walking on your back, hot stones and oil too!

Walking NYC 3 days, attraction after attraction, my feet gave up and my husband's back was whacked. Taiko took us in at 10:15 am, one working my feet and legs and the other therapist walking on hubby's back after a thorough back massage. Too good to be true. Better check it out yourself it's so worth it $40.

I've been there about 5 times and try to get there any time I even connect through NYC (it's a great way to unwind after arriving from Europe). The is a proper, full-on Chinese massage. They have detected and fixed problems I had without being told. If you like a soft massage I would say so in advance because the... More

Best massage ever. Rooms are basic but who cares when the massage is so good. 2nd visit. First visited last year at around same time - just as good this time as last year.

I've gone to the Taiji spa on West 72nd St three times now and i think it is one of the best deals going. It is definitely a no-frills experience. The rooms are clean and perfectly good, but separated by curtains, and so you can hear some ambient noise from the front office. (I have never heard any other patrons.)... More

If you have any knot, it will be found and gone! I have many neck problems, so I go to a lot of places, but I love to come back here. I've always had great and intense massages. If you want a rub and relaxation, don't bother, but if you really want a deep massage and relieve yourself of pain,... More

$48 for an hour full body massage WITH hot stones--in NYC?? YES!! The price is awesome (even less than back home in Virginia!) But perhaps even more important, the people are extremely friendly and the masseuse are very good. Mine was Jessie (American name but a very skilled Chinese lady :-) ). I will definitely visit Taiji again when visiting... More

I went to the one in Greenewhich Village / West Village. The massage itself was great, although I had to tell my masseuse to go a little lighter. I was in a double room with my friend, the 2 masseuses would not stop talking to each other. On top of that the walls were thin we can hear everything, and... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
