This is definitely not a secret, but the NYC Spa Week happens twice a year. It’s a great opportunity to try the numerous treatments, in the various spas, around the five boroughs.
Founded by Cheryl Reid, she explains why and how this idea started:
“Living in New York is not always as easy or glamorous as it sounds. I guess that’s why they say, “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” While the constant hustle and bustle of our metropolis can be exciting, some days a one mile commute can take 45 minutes.
Everyone in New York moves in a hurried, frenzied, impersonal manner — one that is both stressful and draining. One evening I began brainstorming how to create an event that would educate exhausted New Yorkers about the benefits of the spa & wellness lifestyle while offering them an affordable way to experience it.
I also needed to figure out a cost-effective way to drive this new clientele into the day spa market. With these components recognized, the light bulb went off, and the Spa Week Brand was born.”
So, in 2004, Spa Week launched their first edition.
The idea of offering to everyone the possibility of relaxing and having some down time to unwind, at a reasonable cost is amazing.
We all know that New York’s beauty scene can be quite expensive, so having the best spas around the city offering treatments at $50, is fantastic!
They started off their first year with only 25 venues participating, but each year, grew as it became more popular and recognized.
Today, Spa Week has become a National brand, with events happening all over the country. Now, you are able to experience some of the top players in the wellness industry. Plus, you can focus and dedicate time for your well-being.
Each year, in New York City, there are over 100 salons and spas participating in this special week. They all offer a wide number of treatments at this special, discounted rate.
The best thing is, many of these treatments are offered in super high-end and luxurious spas around town.
Keep your eyes opened for their 2016 event! All bookings cane be made online.
Here are two spas that we adore: Aire Ancient Baths in TriBeCa and Body by Brooklyn in Clinton Hill. We have even organized unique experiences for corporate groups coming from overseas and they had a fantastic time.
