(April 9, 2015) - How would you like to get a spa treatment like a massage or a facial for half price? That’s exactly what you can get with “Spa Week” in central Indiana. It’s part of a national program.

“For those people who don't like to spend a lot of money, this is their time to come in and try it out and see how you like it. Sooner or later you get hooked on the pampering and it’s just great,” said Jillian Breidenstein.

Breidenstein is a customer at Philipe's Day Spa on 82nd in Indianapolis. She gets her facials compliments of Megan Ernstberger of Philipe’s. The spa is once again taking part in National Spa Week. Certain Indianapolis spas will offer three selected services for $50. Those services are normally up to double that.

“Here at Philipe’s, we are running a great Spa Week deal where you can have the half-hour intensive refresher facial with an eyebrow arch for $50. Normally the facial is about a $55 value in itself. The eyebrow arch is a $20 value, and that’s just one of three services we’re offering,” said Nicole Neal, spa director at Philipe's.

This year Spa week is April 13 through the 19. The map on Spaweek.com shows 10 local spas are taking part this year, far more than the usual two or three. It's also a time for spas to generate new business!

“Maybe you are person who has driven by the spa a thousand times and always wondered what one of our services would be like. Well, now is really a good time
to come in and try it for a great price and maybe if you like it, the spa will also get new business,” said Ernstberger.

You can get a variety of services from the variety of spas, from manicures and pedicures, massages, and all the works. Breidenstein uses it as a prep for all the seasonal weddings she’s going to and all the pictures she'll be in.

“You relieve your stress from work, you'll feel a little bit younger, and maybe you’ll feel a bit more girly, with just the right amount of pampering,” she said.

But guys, it's also for you. Guys often get massages, facials, even manicures and pedicures.

The best tip is to call the spa or spas you want to try. That way you can find out what they offer, and when you can book a time. Make sure they don't run out of slots before Spa Week runs out!
