City Pulse

By Stephanie Ila Silver-Silberstein


It’s back! The bi-annual Spa Week is around the corner and taking place in over 130 spas throughout New York. October 15th-21st marks the date when participating NY Day Spas will be discounting 2-3 spa services to $50! Don’t wait too long to book appointments – slots fill up super fast. Log on to to view the participants and make appointments.

According to Cheryl Reid, founder of Spa Week, the ultimate goal of Spa Week is to make ‘wellness’ more than just a word and to improve our nation’s overall health. In an effort to make regular trips to the spa an integral part of a daily healthy lifestyle, Spa Week offers discounted treatments as a means of introduction to what literally is a life-saving industry. Of course, if you’re reading this, you’re probably well aware of just how beneficial going to the spa is to your overall well-being. Participating spas include Oasis Day Spa, Elizabeth Arden Red Door, Sothy’s, Lather Spa, Edamame the Maternity Spa, and Essential Therapy.

Going to the spa isn’t just about looking beautiful and relaxing for an hour. It’s about relieving muscle tension, improving circulation, decreasing stress and/or high blood pressure, boosting the immune system, increasing energy and in general, saving us an unnecessary trip to the doctor’s office. And at $50 a treatment all next week, the only excuse not to embark on that road to wellness is if all the appointments have been booked already!
