Nothing is more fashionable than relaxing. Mobile spa Cygalle Healing Spa created a “Sanctuary of Wellness” for this past NYFW to pamper exclusive fashion show attendees. The sanctuary featured complimentary hot stone massages, manicures, Reiki energy healing, natural hair extensions, and spiritual guidance.
Cygalle Healing Spa was launched in 2006 and quickly became a celebrity favorite among actors like Kate Hudson and Rosario Dawson. By 2008, founder Cygalle Dias expanded into spa management for luxury hotels, specializing in creating wellness centers within fast-paced cities. The company also launched a destination spa at Casa de Campo, deemed one of the top spas in the world by Vanity Fair. Cygalle Healing Spa uses only natural, chemical-free products to create a holistic meditative setting.
“The Sanctuary of Wellness was created to offer relaxation, wellness, and beauty treatments during one of the most demanding weeks in the fashion industry,” Founder Cygalle Dias said. “At Cygalle Healing Spa, our mission has always been to pamper, heal and educate people on how to be healthy, and I’m confident that Cygalle Healing Spa and the wondering partnering brands at the Sanctuary of Wellness will be able to do so.
This year’s NYFW Sanctuary of Wellness was hosted at Casita in Manhattan. The open space sanctuary was designed by Curb Gardner Creative Group, a boutique design company specializing in architectural and interior spaces. A private seating area and refreshment bar framed the sanctuary lounge, with massage chairs and salon stylists in the center of the room.
The sanctuary featured a variety of eco-friendly products and practices. The hot stone massages used infrared radiant light to enhance the heating process, proven to improve circulation, cell renewal, restore balance, and remove toxins.
Celebrity stylists-founded LNS for Hair made its grand debut at NYFW, offering free sew-in hair extensions from lines LNS Pure and LNS Amor at the sanctuary. Hairstylists Sekia Holmes and Lacy Fields also offer weaves, hair coloring, and healthy haircare as part of their LNS brand.
Manicures were offered by Lust Cosmetics, a luxury vegan, and gluten-free cosmetics line. The cruelty-free Lust Nail Lacquer color options ranged from chic neutrals to stylish statement hues.
In a private back room, psychic guide Roxanne Elizabeth Usleman, Ph.D. conducted spiritual readings. Similarly, energy healer and Reiki master Daisy Collado offered music-based treatments to reduce stress, anxiety, and tension.
Gift bags included products from the participating brands, as well as samples from vegan mineral line Alkamind, botanical skincare brand ClearChoice’s hydrating spray and protein-enhanced mascara, Prada SpaCeutical organic hand sanitizer, and gift cards for POP!N, a mobile app for high-end fitness classes that bypass gym memberships, among other NYC-based company promotions.
The Cygalle Healing Spa’s Sanctuary of Wellness was a welcomed treat during the hectic weeks of NYFW shows. From luxurious nail care to high-end hair extensions, Cygalle knows how to pamper.
