Stephanie Hershkowitz, general manager and a principal of Tranquility Spa in the Midway Shopping Center, has announced the 30th anniversary of the business. The facility has operated continuously since its opening and experienced steady growth and expansion. “Our current location is 6,030 square feet,” says Hershkowitz, “with a reception area of 600 feet. That was just about the entire size of our first location.”
The business was formed in 1991 by Hershkowitz’s uncle, Dr. Andrew Schwartz, an endodontist with a practice in Scarsdale, and her mother, Billie Adelson, who had studied to become a licensed esthetician. Dr. Schwartz was frequenting a gym at 800 Central Avenue, Scarsdale, and noticed an empty space across the hall. Sensing an opportunity afforded by the neighboring gym and the clientele it regularly attracted for personal training, the two partnered to lease the space and launch Tranquility Spa, a modest four-room operation headed by Adelson offering massages and facials.

"Fantastic! – a Small Price to Pay to Return to Tranquility Spa"
”In the ‘new normal,’ I found that my massages were still fantastic! I had no trouble calling in when I reached the parking lot and the young woman who answered said she would call me right back after she checked that my massage therapist was waiting for me. I was greeted at the front desk and went directly downstairs where I was escorted into the massage room and told to put all my clothes and my sandals into a bin. Afterwards I got my own water and left the spa immediately. Yes, I miss the steam room and showering before my massage (I shower at home). But it is a small price to pay, enabling me to return to Tranquility Spa.Thank you for all your efforts to making me feel safe under these circumstances.”

“Safe, Immaculate – My Round Trip to Heaven!"
“After months of Tranquility being closed due to Covid19, my body was screaming for a massage. Not fully knowing what to expect I had concerns that were quickly put to rest. Tranquility Spa was immaculate in every way. Plexiglass screens were up in the reception area. The employees all wore face masks and the massage therapists also wore a face shield and apron. Some amenities like the locker room, showers, steam room, robes and the lounge area are not yet permitted however that did not detract from an outstanding massage and what I call my round trip to heaven. Only a day out from my massage and I am already looking forward to my next massage. What a wonderful experience and an amazing staff.”

"The New Way Allows Me to Feel Safe & Protected"
“I am a NYC guidance counselor and I decided to start my summer with a CBD massage. It was the best decision I could have made!! I will only have CBD massages moving forward! My therapist was so professional and made sure I was comfortable with the new protocols. I did not feel claustrophobic at all while in the face cradle, and was so relaxed when lying on my back that I didn't even realize I had a face mask on. This new way of doing things allows me to feel safe and protected and take care of myself once again, both mentally and physically. I will be returning really soon!”
Stephanie S., Hartsdale, NY
