Soho Sanctuary


A Message from the Founder

Welcome to Soho Sanctuary: Spa, Beauty, and Fitness for Women.

Here I am, relaxing in the Quiet Area waiting for my deep tissue massage, to be followed by a luxurious organic oxygen facial. I have already had my Personal Power class in the Fitness Studio and after my spa treatments, I will head to the Beauty Loft for a manicure, pedicure, brow wax, lash tint, and makeup. What a perfect day!

The vision for Soho Sanctuary emerged from my own longing for a serene place to go in Manhattan to escape the pressures of work, family, and the city's dizzying pace of life. A place where women could strengthen and tone their bodies and be nurtured by healing, beautifying, and luxurious treatments. A place that offered impeccable personal service, privacy, and the best-qualified beauty specialists, therapists, and fitness instructors available. An antidote to the commercial, impersonal environments of so many other spas.

Located on a historic cobblestone street in Soho, The Sanctuary offers relaxing and therapeutic bodywork and natural skin care treatments in our Spa. In the Beauty Loft, clients treat themselves to spa manicures, pedicures, waxing, and makeup applications. In the Fitness Studio, customized private sessions are offered in Pilates, Soho Yoga, Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, and Personal Power, a unique fusion approach to fitness training. Our team of gifted professionals tailor services and classes to meet the unique and changing needs of our guests. All of our offerings are specifically created for the female form.

Women of all ages, from Uptown to Wall Street, Soho neighbors to visitors and celebrities alike come to Soho Sanctuary for an experience in body care like no other. I invite you, too, to restore your health and energy, relax deeply, and enjoy the beauty rituals we all love.

Soho Sanctuary: Spa, Beauty, and Fitness for Women...truly a space that belongs to you.
