Consumers are cautiously looking to spend again, according to a recent Ispsos/Reuters survey. For some day spa clients, that caution translates to a desire for treatments that offer a real health and wellness benefit. To provide that lasting impact, Sunlight Day Spa created the O Loves It Package, which includes a massage or facial, and an infrared sauna session offering benefits like weight loss, detoxification and heart health. The package references the appearance of Sunlight Saunas on the Oprah Winfrey Show as part of a Dr. Oz feature on longevity.
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) June 25, 2009 — A recent Ispsos/Reuters survey shows that consumer confidence is stabilizing after a long decline, and that three-quarters of homeowners who have cut spending are cautiously looking to spend again. That caution often means considering the long-term value of an expenditure. For some day spa clients, this translates to a desire for treatments and packages offering extended impact.
“People don’t want to wake up the morning after a day spa visit feeling as stressed as usual,” said Julie Palitto, Manager of Kansas City-area Sunlight Day Spa. “We’ve seen a greater appreciation of treatments like far infrared sauna therapy as part of the spa visit. It’s short-term gratification coupled with longer-term benefits like weight loss, detoxification, heart health and more vibrant skin.”
To provide that lasting impact for clients, Sunlight Day Spa has created the O Loves It Package, which includes a massage or facial, an infrared sauna session and a subscription to Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine. The package references the appearance of Sunlight Saunas on the Oprah Winfrey Show as part of a Dr. Oz feature on longevity. Originally aired on March 24, the episode is scheduled to re-air on Tuesday, June 30.
A June 2009 survey of International Spa Association delegates identified preventive health as the industry’s greatest opportunity for growth. “A spa visit can be a little luxury offering comfort in uncertain times,” said Palitto. “But if an aspect of that visit could mean living healthier and reducing medical expenditures, it becomes significantly more than that.”
Sunlight Day Spa focuses on healing stress and bringing balance to mind, body and spirit. Its offerings include massage therapy, infrared sauna therapy, facials, body wraps and microdermabrasion. The Overland Park spa was recently named as one of the five best days spas in Kansas City by KC Magazine.
Sunlight Day Spa and its parent company Sunlight Saunas have realized consistent growth despite the economy. The organization as a whole is looking to increase its size by 20 percent this year, including filling four current job openings.
