The Well, a full-service integrative wellness center — the first of its kind — opens in Manhattan.

We anticipate a spa stay with delight, while we dread a visit to the doctor. What if one destination combined the offerings of a luxury resort with medical insight from a team of top-notch physicians? A one-stop health haven, serene as a yoga studio and sophisticated as a highly ranked hospital— that would help any medicine go down. Opening this month in Manhattan’s Flatiron: The Well, a membership-based wellness club designed for time-pressed urban professionals.

Embracing healing wisdom from both the Western and Eastern medical arts, The Well offers access to MDs (including Purist contributor Dr. Frank Lipman, The Well’s chief medical officer), plus practitioners trained in acupuncture, Chinese herbs, physical therapy and Ayurveda. Members enjoy unlimited yoga and meditation classes in a 18,0000-square-foot space beautified by Miami’s Rose Ink Work- shop, the design team responsible for the renovation of the Riviera Resort in Palm Springs, California.
