trend to watch: membership spas.
how it works: members pay a monthly fee (typically around the cost of one spa service) and receive a free service each month, plus discounted rates on additional services.
who this works for: anyone who gets a facial or massage once a month.
the case study: simply face & body - a new division of red door spa holdings - in ramsey, nj (with more locations coming soon).
simply face & body is hooked on being affordable - facials are $79 for non-members and $49 for members - while still offering high quality.
i went to check it out for myself -- and the quality was better than i've received at places where i've paid twice the price! my massage was the most relaxing and thorough on my life - i was so tranquil, i couldn't even understand english afterwards. my facial included the usual steaming, masks, cleansing and massaging, plus extraction and high frequency treatment (a cutting edge technology which kills bacteria under the surface).
and, the spa is totally green! from the paint on their walls to the products that go on your face. they use only organically-certified face and body skincare from juice beauty and pangea organics.
simply face & body debuted on january 23, 2009 at the interstate shopping center in ramsey, nj. learn more about their offerings by calling 877-57-SIMPLY or online at simplyfaceandbody.com.
