BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ — As Spa Week(R) descends on Los Angeles September 12 through 18, it marks the third installation to the triumphant New York Spa Week(R) franchise with national sponsor Allure magazine. The inaugural event heralds 35 premier day and resort spa destinations in Los Angeles and its environs, and welcomes consumers to experience a broad spectrum of the region’s finest spa environments and beauty treatments for only $50 — a fraction of standard spa service fees.
C & R Media’s Christina Castro and Cheryl Reid, who hail from successful careers within the luxury spa industry and publishing spheres, developed Spa Week(R). Motivated by the $12 billion annual North American spa industry, the national Spa Week(R) events proffer corporate sponsors and spa partners alike with a vital niche marketing platform — in Los Angeles it is produced strategically in tandem during one of Hollywood’s most celebrated image events — the Emmy(R) Awards. It also avails celebrities, media and consumers the distinct advantage to experience these preferred spas while embarking on the best in beauty and well-being.
With Los Angeles magazine as the regional co-sponsor, along with Saab, Pevonia Botanica and DreamWorks Pictures, a private celebrity benefit is planned for non-profit beneficiary Women in Film, taking place on Thursday, September 15 at the Bel Age Hotel’s breathtaking Sky Pool Sculpture Garden and hosted by Ms. Joely Fisher of ABC-TV’s mega-hit ‘Desperate Housewives’. A special spa cuisine menu has been created by Executive Chef Dennis Burrage of the Bel Age Hotel in celebration of Spa Week(R).
As part of the invitation-only Women in Film benefit, an experiential Sanctuary Oasis will feature the newest innovations in beauty, spa lifestyle, health and wellness, offering guests the indulgent experience of petite spa services as the focal point. They will include therapeutic spa facials, hairstyling, permanent make up and eyebrow threading, Champagne manicures and ZenSpa reflexology, thermal collagen treatments, Thai yoga massage, barbering, grooming and express facials for men and specialty boutique offerings from the best beauty brands to the finest purveyors of pampering. There is even a signature ‘Saab chair massage’ for those feeling tension from Los Angeles area driving. An elegant and relaxing spa-inspired garden installation designed by Cal-a-Vie Spa Resort architectural interior designer Laurie Steichen features custom-made cabanas and landscaped VIP lounge settings created by TFS Studio, elegant garden furnishings by Janus et Cie and The Arroyo Collection by David Dalton and renowned sculptor David Grieco’s monumental work.
Invited guests include a contingent of Hollywood’s brightest stars, Emmy(R) Award nominees and presenters, Women in Film members, entertainment insiders, tastemakers and style influencers as well as Los Angeles’ social glitterati and beauty cognoscenti.
With the fanaticism surrounding Hollywood awards shows, particularly the Emmy’s, Spa Week(R) Los Angeles applauds the spirit and excitement of appreciating a luxurious and personal spa experience — prior to making your red carpet ‘close-up’. An in-spa sweepstakes promotion with Los Angeles magazine for the new DreamWorks Pictures release “Just Like Heaven” with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo will offer visiting spa aficionados the opportunity to win a romantic trip to San Francisco.
