Aiming to be the largest nationwide initiative devoted to helping people jumpstart healthier and happier lives, SpaFinder announced that its popular bi-annual Deal Days will return in March 2011 as SpaFinder Wellness Week.

From March 21-27, 2011, hundreds of spas, fitness studios and centers and wellness practitioners across the country will either reduce prices by half, or offer flat-rate $50 deals from everything from massages, wraps, and facials to nutrition counseling, acupuncture, yoga, Pilates, and more.

To inspire consumers everywhere to use the weeklong event to jumpstart their wellness regimens, SpaFinder will offer extensive original content including a full week of healthy spa cuisine menus, daily wellness tips, recipes for DIY spa treatments, and webinars led by leading wellness experts. SpaFinder will also work with participating locations on creating customized programs to help their customers and community achieve wellness goals.

Confirmed participants include destination and resort spas like Canyon Ranch Miami and The Peninsula Chicago to day spas and salons like Obaji (Beverly Hills, CA), Spahtika (New York City), Ruby Room (Chicago), and Hiatus (Dallas) to top fitness and wellness centers across the U.S. A full list of participating locations will be announced in early March 2011.

SpaFinder Wellness Week will build on the quick success of SpaFinder’s first-ever national weeklong savings events in March and September 2010. Nearly 700 locations, including national chains like Bliss, Bar Method, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, and Clarins, participated in SpaFinder’s Fall Deal Days in September.

“This event has expanded far beyond presenting fabulous deals on spa and wellness options to a comprehensive program dedicated to bringing health and wellness to the entire country.” said Sallie Fraenkel, chief operating officer of SpaFinder, Inc. “Our goal is for Wellness Week to be the inspiration for people everywhere to take steps to get healthier, de-stress, eat more wisely, and ramp up their fitness routines.”
