I love getting pedicures, they are sooooooo relaxing! I also love meditation, yoga and massages.


The best way to pamper myself is by calling out of the job(s). Happy Holidays All!


Job hunting is stressful. Winning this would be a nice way to take a break, guilt free.


Best way to pamper myself is a combination of wine, nail polish, and a few episodes of Scandal to catch up on!


I pamper myself with an expensive bottle of wine, but I’m open to this whole massage thing!


Chamomile tea and honey, face mask, cozy PJs, putting my feet up and reading a good book.


I pamper myself by pampering a friend, too. The best way to enjoy a mani/pedi is while catching up with my girlfriends.


I am a teacher and could totally use a massage! Those shoulders always get so tight, but I never want to pay $100 for a massage!

I love to treat myself to a Tui Na massage or manicure. Best way to spend a lazy Sunday :)


When I have the time and can afford them, massages are the best. But otherwise a manicure and pedicure will do the trick.

Jen Makulowich

When I get really stressed at work, nothing feels better than a massage, but if I’m just looking to treat myself, I stick with a mani/pedi :)


I am treated to one massage a year by a dear friend of mine, and I look forward to it all year long :)

Amanda K.

Getting a one hour massage is my favorite way to pamper myself…I don’t get to do it nearly as often as I’d like to, though.

Daniel Rios

A long, mild pressure massage with some stretching integrated into it has been a great way to relax. And with cucumber water, you have to have cum cucumber water.


A massage is my favorite way, but they’re often pricey so I either get a mani-pedi or ask my boyfriend for a massage!


I have a cocktail. Surely a rejuvenating facial would be a healthier treat.

Maria Lauron-Castro

I love to get the full package of a mani/pedi/ massage!! Thankfully, in Astoria it is easy to find good quality service without paying Manhattan prices!

Katie Kenney

Seems like my favorite seems to be one of the most popular with the classic massage. Nothing like working through the stresses life can bring by ridding yourself of sore muscles and tension!

Charlene Chew

Going and getting a massage and a facial is the best way to relax when I have the funds to do so. Otherwise a long bath a glass of wine and music.


I used to take long steamy bubble baths when I felt I needed pampering. Now that I have two kids there is no way I can be in the bathroom alone. Ever.

Now I find ways to get out of the house and go for a walk or see an art exhibition.

I could definitely use some hands-on TLC though.


As a massage therapist, my favorite way to pamper myself is…with a massage! :)


Getting a manicure is usually the easiest and cheapest way to pamper myself
