Spa Week: Seven Days to Live Healthier and Happier

March 19, 2013

National Event betters overall health and well-being with its affordable $50 spa treatments

NEW YORK, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — A recent study from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital shows that the spa offers more than just pampering and relaxation – it can improve one’s overall health. The study, which included 15 participants of a wide variety of ages, confirms that a week-long spa stay corresponds with positive changes in physical and emotional well-being. This is one of the first instances in which scientific data has been attached to the health benefits of spa visits, therefore creating groundbreaking headway for the spa and wellness industry. Long before having science on its side, Spa Week has successfully spread this message for almost a decade with its biannual, signature $50 spa treatments.

Since its inception in 2004, Spa Week Media Group has been a true pioneer in the spa and wellness industry. Spa Week, the country’s leading and most reputable Spa Marketing Event, has made it possible for millions of people across North America to experience the healing and therapeutic benefits of the spa with its Spring and Fall Events’ affordable $50 treatments. By heavily discounting costly spa and wellness services on a national scale, Spa Week has played a major role in opening the spa world to the masses while diminishing its privileged and exclusive reputation. For the past nine years, consumers from all walks of life have felt physical and mental relief and gained tools for healthier living by taking advantage of an abundance of spa and wellness treatments at an affordable price, all made possible by Spa Week.

Moving into its 18th installation, Spa Week’s Spring 2013 Event will take place from April 15th – 21st when hundreds of spas (day, medical and resort), yoga and Pilates studios, fitness and nutrition centers and other health and wellness practices nationwide will offer up to three signature treatments, normally costing $100 all the way up to $500, at the major discount of just $50 each. Millions of spa-goers will look to these treatments to enrich their personal health and well-being, rather than just to pamper themselves. Whether it’s managing chronic physical conditions, decreasing pain and stress, learning healthy eating habits, achieving weight-loss goals, or just simply improving quality of life, Spa Week offers an extensive menu of wellness services for consumers to better themselves on a budget. From the most modern massage and bodywork techniques and cutting-edge skincare procedures to fitness, nutrition and mind/body classes, there’s something for everyone on the Spa Week menu.

In order to receive exclusive information on participating spa and wellness locations and their $50 services, spa-goers should register on SpaWeek.com as early as possible. The complete directory launched on March 11th to allow consumers to begin booking their most desired services. It is recommended that spa-goers sign up and book in advance on SpaWeek.com to ensure they reserve their top treatment choices. Visitors to SpaWeek.com also have the opportunity to spread the gift of wellness by conveniently purchasing the Spa & Wellness Gift Card by Spa Week® on SpaWeek.com. Accepted at over 7,500 spas and wellness locations across North America and never expire, Spa & Wellness Gift Cards may be used during Spa Week or any time of the year. Recipients will have the freedom to choose from thousands of locations and services, all while knowing that you have their long-term health, balance and happiness in mind.

No longer classified as luxuries, spa visits are now viewed as necessities as more people are taking control of their own health and well-being. Over the past few years, there has been an explosion of medical evidence about the proven health benefits of spa and wellness services, creating higher consumer demand to easily (and affordably) obtain these services. While spa facilities are doing their part to incorporate more health and wellness innovation into their offerings, Spa Week is to thank for evolving consumer expectations of the spa from a coveted indulgence to real, functional health and wellness.

Spa Week was created and founded by Cheryl Reid, who hails from successful careers within the luxury spa industry and publishing spheres. Joining Spa Week for the Spring 2013 Event, sponsors include Exclusive National Media Sponsor: Health Magazine; Exclusive Trade Association Partner: ISPA; Exclusive Skincare Sponsor: Beautify Skin Care; Exclusive Health & Wellness Partner: JoyBauer.com and Exclusive Mind & Body Sponsor: Dashama. Spa Week is co-sponsored by CEW and a portion of the proceeds from the Spring and Fall Events are donated to CancerAndCareers.org.
