#HipNJ‘s Gina Cerniglia made her way to South Orange‘s Wellness Lounge, and found out more about their Jersey Luxe spa services.
During the “Wellness Happy Hour” event, Gina was lucky enough to indulge in some of their offerings, including a Thai massage, ear candling, reflexology and acupuncture. The Wellness Lounge also offers guided meditation and holistic assessment, which measures “your current wellness status and lifestyle to determine the most appropriate support for improving your overall well-being.”
Another en vogue therapy they offer is Reiki. This technique promotes stress reduction, relaxation and healing via energy that can only be channeled by someone attuned to it. This hypnotic experience promotes a calm, relaxed state that is a different experience for each individual.
The Wellness Lounge offers Corporate Solutions as well, which gives your employees a relaxing treat for all their hard work! They also work within schools and communities to promote health and wellness, and even set up “pop up” luxury lounges for events and parties!
Chakra boasts an intimate setting and ultra-sexy vibe. The “modern American” menu, whipped up by German-bornChef Thomas Ciszak, is an eclectic mix of farm-fresh ingredients. It’s the perfect reception spot for the trendy bride and groom seeking an alternative to the traditional catering hall!
Chakra’s general manager, Evelyn Hsu, dished to #HipNJ’s Sam Selvaggio about how her staff accommodates customers’ wishes. “We customize everything. From cultural traditions to guests’ dietary restrictions, we make sure that every detail is just perfect!”
Chakra is a restaurant before a catering hall, so definitely take advantage of their a la carte menu with your friends or a date. Their romantic setting is great for popping the question too!
Prolific #HipNJ wine cellar builder Jay Rosen sat with our Kelly Dillon in one of his pristine designs!
Jay’s passion for wine was the motivating factor for starting and maintaining his business. Since establishing Washington Valley Cellars, Jay and his team have built hundreds of one-of-kind cellars and wine storage areas for oenophiles in New Jersey and around the country.
Jay and his staff ensure the best possible costumer service. They work closely with customers on consulting, layout, framing and insulation, installation of vapor barriers, lighting and temperature control, as well as design direction for magnificent cellar doors, brick columns and decorative walls of stone and granite accents.
Recently featured in Wine Spectator magazine- among many other publications– Jay boasts a 4,000-bottle wine loft of his own, and credits the thriving wine industry for a surge in wine cellar design.
