A Secret Oasis Of Calm
I was really torn about writing this particular blog because I wanted to insure being able to get an appointment in the future. Hands down the Royal SPHATIKA Spa must be one of the best kept secrets in New York!
It’s no coincidence that the Life Centering Haven, and Crystal (meaning of Sphatika) Sanctuary, is located in the center of Manhattan at Columbus Circle.
The life charging, unforgettable, belated Valentine experience I shared with a very dear person in my life will never be forgotten.
BEAU-T BY BLANE Design/Wellness Consulting is also dedicated to the promotion of health first, beauty second, knowing that they both go hand in hand. My clients always walk away with the realization that beauty starts within. Actually, when you can truly own your inner beauty you can make a paper sack look good (with a belt of course)!
SPHATIKA is at the top of my list for truly “Age Defying” Beauty!
After our initial tour with Andrea, my sagittarius sister (we are both born on December 8th), I took Janet’s recommendation and joined my dear friend in making The Sphatika Signature Experience our Valentines choice! Yes, the treatment is $250, and guess what? Your health is worth it! I find that when I take care of my inner health my outer radiance shines. I’m 50 going on 30 December 8th, 2012 and my waist is still a slim 29″ thanks to making preventive health treatments a priority in my life.
Nancy Engel’s Life Rhythm 330 W 58 St Suite 510, the ultimate in colon hydrotherapy, located mystically around the corner, and Sphatika 1841 Broadway Suite 811, the ultimate in spas, are perfect companions to my Eternal Youth.
Rosalie, the keeper of the gate to the oasis of calm, welcomed us with an opened arm, warm embrace! Right up to when she turned us over to our specialist, Rosalie made us feel like we had entered her home with her attentive and stellar care.
“Deep Sleep Loving Care and Pure Conscious Intention Promote Deep Healing.” – Janet League-Katzin
Far Infrared Sauna
The first 20 minutes of rejuvenation begins in Shanti Loka (Sanskrit for Abode of Peace) where I was handed my own personal quartz crystal and sat in a wooden KOMEDA Butsudan (Japanese for house) soaking up the best rays of the sun while reflecting on my intention for the session. During the process I could feel my body calming down to the healing sounds of the specially composed music filling the space. The exclusive 3 CD’s are available for purchase.
Sphatika Healing Music
The Sphatika Healing Music is an integral part of The Sphatika Experience. The beautiful flute and piano compositions with relaxing undertones enhance the healing experience by inspiring a serene, light and peaceful atmosphere.
“These flute and piano meditations are offerings of music as medicine. They are prayers created in the present moment, neither pre-composed nor pre-arranged. By listening to them, we can attune ourselves to the rhythm of the natural world and the world of the spirit, and experience, even if for a moment, the grace of the present where all healing takes place.”

Far Infrared Sauna releases toxins on a cellular level and is an effective method to combat inflammation of the joints as the body releases endorphins-the body’s naturally produced pain-relieving chemical.
Midori, is a conduit who channels all the healing goddesses of the Universe! She reconnected me to my youthful state of Bliss with her magical touch!
I was stripped of all the pressures, stress, and worries of life in this concrete jungle, and taken back to the safe warm place of my mother’s womb, and for someone or someplace to take me there is sheer genius!
The Sphatika Lymphatic Drainage Body Massage/Facial
This treatment stimulated the opening of my lymphatic system thereby increasing the volume of lymph flow which results in the elimination of dead cells, waste products, bacteria, viruses, inorganic substances, water and fats. The body rocking calmed my nervous system while the body brushing stimulated my circulation. To top it all off, Midori applied a luscious and nutrient-rich Sphatika Body Mask while I relaxed under a steam canopy.
After my treatment, I was whisked back to Shanti Loka to savor my state of blissful rest with my special friend and confirm our personal prescriptions. First on our list, Pearl Night Serum followed by Treatment Serum, Bulgarian Rose Facial Oil, and Hemp Body Oil.

Wether I’m design consulting for BEAU-T BY BLANE, or interviewing as host for my talk show, “ELEMENTS of FIERCE!”, I enjoy celebrating entrepreneurs/artist who encapsulate my favorite quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson “Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail.”
Before my first Sphatika Experience of Janet League-Katzin, I proudly enjoyed collaborating with Anne Marie Offer for her interview with Janet on “Something To Offer” (Anne Marie’s talk show) and with Laura A. Petrecca for her wonderful feature in the business section of USA TODAY. I also had the honor of being present when she was honored with the 2010 FGI Rising Star Award.
I join in celebrating the inspiration that Janet brings to so many lives. The remembrance that no obstacle is really a obstacle when you truly believe in your dream to empower others to live their best lives.

NEW YORK — Janet League-Katzin’s elegantly decorated spa in Manhattanoffers luxurious full-body treatments that range from $250 to $375.
Helena Greene’s more-cluttered retail store in Harlem holds an eclectic mix of offbeat merchandise from paint-your-own maracas to Finger in the Nose children’s wear.
Michelle League-Thornton makes and sells gemstone jewelry from a New Orleans studio.
Despite their different trades and work environments, the women have one thing in common: DNA. Greene and League-Thornton are League-Katzin’s daughters. And they’re among the many clans who share an entrepreneurial urge but have gone in different directions.
It was such an honor to be a wardrobe consultant for Janet and her Lovely, and multi-talented daughter, Helena Greene. It was only then that I learned that Janet was an inspiration to all of her daughters to realize their entrepreneurial dreams. I discovered the beautiful jewelry designs of Michelle Thorton at Helena’s concept shop, SWING NYC, in Harlem.
