Spa Week Spring Event: Healthy Lifestyle Choices are the New Wave of Relaxation and Rejuvenation
Natural healing methods are on the rise as antidotes for an over-connected, demanding world. The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) reports that US healthcare costs are forecast to rise an average of 5.8% every year through 2025. In turn, more Americans are integrating alternative, preventative health approaches into their lifestyles. Spa Week continues its dedication of delivering the best in health and wellness year round by working with spas nationwide to transform their traditional treatments into one-of-a-kind wellness experiences for our daily lives. From April 17th – 23rd, hundreds of spas will give consumers the opportunity to explore wellness in an extraordinary and approachable way during Spa Week’s Spring 2017 Event. “A profound shift in the way people consume wellness is underway: once a luxury or “add-on”, it is now being infused into every aspect of daily life,” shares Katherine Johnston, Senior Research Fellow, GWI.
From holistic salt therapy centers to detoxify the respiratory system, to standing in a -160 degree Cryotherapy Chamber to reduce cellulite and improve circulation, these signature services will be available in Spa Week specials. Sit back and get ready to enjoy this roller coaster ride of healthy lifestyle choices and rejuvenate with our top recommendations for Spa Week’s Spring 2017 event.
On The Radio
A radio frequency facial sounds like something out of the future but this high tech treatment for loose, sagging skin is pain free, fast and non invasive with no down time. At spas like KUR Skin Lab in Midtown NYC, they heat up the skin’s tissue using radio frequency to stimulate new collagen and elastin production and create tighter, firmer skin.
Looking for a natural treatment that is designed to help you purify your skin, clear your lungs and overall help you de-stress? Take a trip to visit the Hygea Wellness Co & Salt Room in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania for a Salt Therapy treatment. There, you will bask in a quiet Salt Therapy room made of seven tons of Dead Sea salt and breathe in its surrounding salty and misty vapors. As you meditate and unwind from the outside world, the ions will draw out the pollution, infections and toxins in your body. Not only will you reap the physical benefits of improved breathing and clearer skin, you will leave feeling completely relaxed and refreshed – like a breath of fresh air.
Acupuncture Face Lift
Acupuncture needles on your face? If you can get past the thought, this ancient anti-aging technique will diminish fine lines, firm skin and create a more toned and youthful appearance. Spas like Orchid Aesthetics in NYC offer this rejuvenating facial in their “Exceptional Eyes” treatment, gently inserting tiny needles into specific points to stimulate blood circulation to the face and increase collagen production for a natural “lift”.
Does the thought of a treatment where you freeze various parts of your body leave you with chills? Well, when you stop by the Carrollton Square Spa in Texas for a 50 Minute Cryotherapy Massage, you’ll be joining the ranks of World Champion LeBron James and actress Demi Moore in using alternative methods to improve your health and minimize your pain. Carrollton’s targeted arctic treatment uses cryosticks during the massage to remove tension, promote rapid healing, and reduce the inflammation of muscles and joints. You can also visit the RonnaSkin Day Spa in Westminster, Colorado for a 60 Minute Results-Oriented MicroNeedling Treatment with Cryotherapy. This facial concentrates on rejuvenating and revolutionizing your skin with small icy blasts that will increase collagen production and erase wrinkles.
A facial…for your butt? Initially, we asked the same question but when we look at celebrities like J-Lo, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian and their finely crafted assets, we can’t help but want to book an appointment at NYC’s Smooth Synergy for a Fanny Facial . This sculpting treatment begins with an exfoliating scrub to smooth your backside, and then employs small zaps of microcurrents to your butt and upper-thighs to sculpt and lift your butt. A similar effect that you would get if you went to the gym to do squats. About an hour later, you’ll be left with a perky derriere and an overwhelming confidence to flaunt your newly contoured bottom down the street.
Let there be Light
LED Light Therapy has been used by both NASA and the Navy Seals to heal wounds and rejuvenate muscles but now Phototherapy treatments are used to heal sun damaged and acne prone skin. At Skin Innovations Skin Care & Spa in Newton, MA, they incorporate LED light therapy in their Deluxe HydraFacial to improve skin texture and visibly reduce signs of aging.
Entering the Gemisphere
What do celebrities like Katy Perry, Adele, and Robert Downey Jr. have in common? They are all harnessing the special healing properties from crystals to ward off negative energy and promote healing and relaxation. To experience this modern day treatment, head down to The Spa at CopperWynd in Scottsdale, Arizona for an Amethyst massage. This immersive body massage utilizes the ability of the gemstone as an infused oil to block and reduce pain. You will leave feeling physically and spiritually renewed.
Escape from the Man Cave
Don’t worry guys, Spa Week isn’t just for the ladies. If you’re facing a hairy dilemma, we’ve created the perfect treatment for you. The Bearded Boss Men’s Facial – at NYC’s very own KUR Skin Lab. There, your beard will be attended to with a series of soothing massages while the hair is thoroughly cleansed and the skin is exfoliated and moisturized. Your beard can also get the royal treatment that it needs in Indianapolis, Indiana with Pure Image’s Burly Beard Facial. From its invigorating facial cleanse to a soothing massage, these alluring treatments are designed to build confidence and keep the beard soft and groomed – perfect for a night out on the town.
