It is true that there are some things even Manhattan can’t compete with. In Brooklyn this month, the Bedford Stuyvesant/Clinton Hill Week of Wellness begins on January 20th and ends January 26th. Four spas will be offering treatments for $45 and less: body and back massages, yoga instruction, manicures, pedicures, facials, and donation-based classes on nutrition, belly dancing, meditation, and tai chi. A votre santé.
