7 Ways to Look and Feel Better

new york health and wellness guide!

Put down the pocket fan. Here’s where to sweat, rejuvenate, and beautify.

Get Wet
Fight sweat with water at the new Gansevoort Park Avenue’s rooftop pool and bar, opening July 26 (pool open to guests only; bar open to everyone at night). It’s more of a party spot than a place for aqua aerobics, but in this weather every little doggy paddle counts.

Get Stranded
Combat chlorine damage at Marie Robinson salon, where Marie and her crew offer a free ColoristCure with any service — an all-natural deep treatment exclusive to the salon — and craft the perfect beachy highlights.

Get Pressed
Nutrient-rich, cold-pressed juices, raw foods, and vegan delights are the focus at The Juice Press. Order a Ginger Fireball (ginger, lemon, orange, colloidal silver, oil of oregano, and cayenne pepper), or give toxins the finger with this new juice bars’ one-, three-, or five-day cleanse programs.

Get Treated
But one cannot live on liquids alone. Check out the not-so-sinful, recently launched Vegan Divas, whose pastry chef is a former Babycakes baker. Find the dairy- and refined sugar-free confections (coconut macaroons, chocolate cupcakes) at Butterfield Market.

Get Glowing
Fashion stylist-turned-health coach Quinn Asteak offers advice, regimens, and positive vibes for women dealing with weight loss, digestive issues, and acne. When you schedule your consultation ($25), ask about her DIY vitamin C serum.

Get Moving
What’s more motivating than free? Laughing Lotus teachers lead gratis classes in Chelsea every Wednesday through September 29 (14th Street Park, 7-8 p.m.). If group sweating isn’t your thing, contact new-to-NYC Yada Yada Yoga, a mobile fitness and spa company that helps you book everything from in-home Pilates and kickboxing classes to massages.

And … go!
