Calling All Spa Professionals: We Want to Hear Your Stories

American Spa is looking for treatment room stories for its new newsletter // Graphic by Kara Magliaro

As part of our permanent initiative to constantly create engaging content for our readers, American Spa launched three new newsletters before the start of 2018: Spa Talk, For Estheticians, and Secrets from the Treatment Room.

The Spa Talk newsletter shares a number of exclusive interviews with spa directors and On the Spot videos with professionals from within the wellness industry. For Estheticians, which features exclusive content from our new estheticians tab, includes step by step and how to protocols to perform in the treatment room, what clients are looking for these days, how to boost your esthetics career, product spotlights, and more. Spa Talk gets sent directly to your inbox every other Friday, and For Estheticians will go out every other Tuesday, alternating with the Fresh Finds digital newsletter.

Our third new newsletter, however, is something completely unique, and we need your help in generating its content. Secrets from the Treatment Room will feature stories from you, the readers, sharing your funniest, weird, and wildest moments from the treatment room with other professionals from within the industry. We're looking for the stories from your treatment room that you've kept secret, or shared, that are stories you'll never forget.


The most comprehensive and up-to-date information relating to the pandemic.

All the day's coronavirus-related news and additional stories for small businesses.

Say you've got a story that you know would be a great fit, but don't feel comfortable sharing, that's not a problem. We can guarantee anonymity if you'd like to share your experiences but still keep it private – we've got you covered.

If you're interested in sharing your Secrets from the Treatment Room, e-mail American Spa's executive editor Heather Mikesell at [email protected].

The three new newsletters created a total of six American Spa newsletters curating the latest and greatest spa content from the web. Biweekly on Mondays we send the Med Spa Report, every Tuesday alternates the Fresh Finds digital newsletter and the For Estheticans newsletter, weekly on Wednesdays is our Spa Scoop, biweekly on Fridays is the new Spa Talk, and the first Friday of every month will be Secrets from the Treatment Room.
