Indulge Yourself in Pure Michigan with $50 Spa Treatments in 2010

Special thanks to guest blogger, Courtney Boehm for this great post on Spa Week in Michigan!

If someone told you that you could get spa treatments, such as facials, massages, microdermabrasion and pedicures for just $50, you would probably be skeptical. Well, ladies, it's the truth! For just one week per year, Spa Weekparticipating spas in twenty states, including Michigan, offer select spa services for just $50 as a part of Dove's Spa Week. This week allows those who have eliminated their spa visits due to the economy and those on tight budgets the chance to be pampered for less. Spa Week is also a great way to give first time spa goers a taste of what they can expect at a spa.

Having been one of the many to skip my frequent facials and pedicures for the sake of saving for a rainy day, I decided to splurge and give Spa Week a try.

I browsed through the selection of participating Michigan Spas that offered treatments in advance and chose The Premier Salon at Macy's, Somerset because it was close to home and they offered a great selection of treatments. I chose the 50 Minute Facial and 50 Minute Massage. I called the spa, explaining that I would like to schedule an appointment for Spa Week about two weeks in advance, so I could get the discounted price. Already, they were booked solid during the week of the event but told me they could extend the pricing for an additional week. Perfect!

Like many of you, I was skeptical. Not that the cost would exceed $50, but that these treatments were perhaps "mini" versions of the regularly priced services. I soon found that I worried over nothing. On the day of my appointment, I was treated to 100 minutes of heaven! I was very pleased with my Spa Week experience and was given a 30% off coupon for my next visit as a "thank you" for participating in Spa Week.

I would highly recommend participating in this event next year if you didn't get a chance to book an appointment this time around. If you can't wait for Spa Week, many Michigan Spas offer deals and packages all year long.  You don't have to live in New York or Hollywood to get luxurious spa treatments thanks to the great spas here in Pure Michigan!
