Spa Week Fall 2011 Event + DCTC Spa and Resort Management program

Slow down, stop, turn off everything and, above all, take it real easy because it’s Spa Week. Here’s what that means according to the official Spa Week Fall 2011 Event media release:

“Spa Week Presents Affordable, Lifetime Wellness for Everyone
National Event inspires millions to get and stay healthy with its $50 Treatments

September 2011: 143 million people went to the spa last year, and the number one reason was to reduce stress and relax, according to research by the International Spa Association. The most popular, sought after services—number one being massage—are also the most expensive; the average price of a massage is $85, a facial is $91, and a body treatment is $95. From everyday career and family obligations to an uncertain economy, it’s becoming more difficult than ever for consumers to justify spending time and money on spa treatments as a necessity rather than a luxury. That’s where Spa Week comes in. Since 2004, the original and most successful Spa Marketing Event to date has allowed millions to take advantage of the healing benefits of the spa with its biannual, signature $50 treatments.

Moving into its 15th installation, Spa Week’s Fall 2011 Event, presented by CAREFREE®, will continue to bring the most innovative and wellness-focused services at an affordable cost to deserving consumers across the United States and Canada. From October 10th – 16th, hundreds of day spas, medical spas, resort spas, yoga and Pilates studios and other health and fitness centers will offer 2-3 exclusive services for a discounted price of just $50 each. As always, Spa Week works with some of the most prominent, trusted names in the industry and is responsible for educating spa-goers on how to incorporate specific treatments into their lifelong health regiments.”
