Spas Gear Up for National Stress Awareness Month

While handling stress is an ongoing battle, you may want to focus on it in the coming weeks. April is National Stress Awareness Month, the perfect time to promote a host of relaxation-inducing treatments and packages. The Wolcott Hotel (New York City), for instance, has teamed up with J'amie Day Spa, to offer guests the Relax in the City package ($77, normally priced at $90), which includes a mini facial, foot reflexology, a scalp and neck massage, an eyebrow waxing, and a lip waxing. While some might argue getting waxed isn't exactly relaxing, if it's on your clients' to-do lists, then it can certainly help them alleviate some unnecessary stress. The Mountain Horse Farm (Naples, NY) is offering guests a De-stress Aromatherapy Workshop (ranging from $410 to $540), which helps guests focus on how to de-stress in today's busy world. Designed for two, the workshop covers the basics of aromatherapy, safety and usage, dilution guidelines, resources, and recipes. There is even a do-it-yourself session in which participants make their own products to take home with them. Also included are two nights accomodation and a country breakfast for two.
