Day Spa Association Offers New Accreditation Advantages
Union City, NJ     Hannelore Leavy, Executive Director of the Day Spa Association notes “In today’s challenging economic situations, many consumers are becoming more selective on how to spend their leisure dollars. Being able to display an accreditation seal awarded by a national organization will make a big difference to sophisticated spa goers. This helps many new first-time day spa clients to determine which spa to select as their preferred destination.  Imagine being the only day spa in your area that can claim to be DSA Accredited. Plus, you now have the opportunity to win the nationally celebrated title of ‘Distinguished Day Spa Of The Year’ from the Day Spa Association.”
DSA ACCREDITATION ADVANTAGES:  Accredited day spas receive an official DSA Accreditation Seal as well as a special 4-color accreditation certificate for display in your reception areas, while you competitively earn new bragging rights in all of your marketing, advertising and PR programs.  DSA Accreditation distinguishes your day spa from the thousands of other spas and salons that are competing for your clients. You will have a new opportunity for media attention. Requests to the Day Spa Association from the consumer and professional trade media are exclusively directed to DSA Accredited day spas. Accredited day spas are proudly and specially indicated on the Day Spa Association website as well as in the Day Spa Directory, so consumers may search for you on the DSA website. The DSA further provides you with a press release from the association to your local media for all newly accredited day spas. DSA Accreditation allows you automatic enrollment in the ‘Platinum Partners Program’ at all Spa & Resort Expo Conferences in Los Angeles and New York City each year
