LEXINGTON, Ky., Dec 10, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Does the stress of the economy have you pulling your hair out? Are you running circles around Santa gearing up for the Holidays? Now is the time to take a breather, rejuvenate, and de-stress.
The spa industry knows people are stretched thin emotionally, physically and financially, which is why many spas are offering incredible deals. From 20 percent off treatments, to buy one, get the other half off, there is something for everyone. Spas are upgrading services, adding aromatherapy to massages, and sending guests home with free gifts. Gift givers who buy certificates are being rewarded with one of their own, and some spas are even offering complimentary daycare.
“According to the American Institute of Stress, an estimated 75 – 90 percent of all doctor visits are stress related,” said ISPA President Lynne McNees. “As we know from ISPA’s research, the number one reason people visit spas is to relieve and reduce stress; something we’re all feeling during these hectic times.”
So whether it’s a quick 30 minute massage on a lunch-hour, or booking one treatment and enjoying the spas pools, saunas and steam room all day, now more than ever, the spa experience is essential for well-being, and enjoyed for its affordability.
Those traveling this Holiday season should look for spa deals at hotels. Many are offering spa credits when a stay is booked. It’s a great way for those new to the spa experience to invest in their well-being this Holiday season.
