REVIEW: (8.5/10) This space leans more medical vs “wellness.” If you’re looking to tackle a persistent problem, Ash has cultivated a scholarly staff and culture. I went to this space during my cancer journey and always felt I was in the best hands — especially with Maureen Dodd, Ash’s resident reiki healer who is the real deal and comes from a lineage of healers.
TIME SPENT: 1.5 hours
VIBE: Old money elegance with a hint of modern zen
BONUS: The well-lit space is overlooking Central Park East and has some of the most comfortable lazy boys draped in faux fur blankets.
