ISPA Media Event relaxes press in NYC

The 16th annual ISPA Media Event was held last week in New York City.  Twelve resort and destination spas transformed the Cipriani 42nd St Event Venue into a haven of relaxation for the attending members of the print, trade, broadcast and digital press.

Each spa set up a booth and featured a service for the journalists to try.  Among the most popular were the Shamanic Dreamwork interpretations, courtesy of The Lodge at Woodloch, the Qi Grounding service from Miraval, and Wild Chamomile and Ancient Cedar Pedissage from Aspira The Spa.  Fun and interesting services were also provided by:

  • The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa

  • Kohler Waters Spa

  • Lake Austin Spa Resort

  • Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group

  • Massage Envy

  • Mohonk Mountain House

  • Montage Resort & Spa

  • Rancho La Puerta

  • The Spa at Trump

Corporate sponsors Hay House and Precor joined gift bag sponsor Spa Week in ensuring the guests were well fed and refreshed and loaded up with spa goodies.  Hopefully, the event will spark an increase in press coverage for these and other new services available in spas in the near future.
