Broadcast/Web Reporter- Washington Business Journal


Washington didn’t make Groupon Inc.’s Top 10 list for the Most Pampered Cities in America, but it does top the list in purchases per subscriber of day passes for spas.

And apparently by a longshot.

Groupon says the next closest city in the spa day pass ranking was Nashville, Tennessee, which spent less than one-third of what Washingtonians did on spa deals.

For its most-pampered list, Groupon looked at how much residents have spent so far this year on pampering Groupon deals like haircuts, nails, facials, teeth whitening and tanning.

Green Bay, Wisconsin, emerged as the Most Pampered City in America.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, ranked No. 1 for teeth whitening. Charleston, South Carolina, was tops for colon hydrotherapy. Las Vegas residents bought the most Groupons for hangover IV therapy.

Groupon’s list of Most Pampered Cities:

  1. Green Bay, Wisconsin
  2. White Plains, New York
  3. Cleveland, Ohio
  4. Austin, Texas
  5. Santa Barbara, California
  6. Stamford, Connecticut
  7. Charlotte, North Carolina
  8. Mobile Alabama
  9. Bergen, New Jersey
  10. Omaha, Nebraska

LAUREL, Md. (WJLA) – A building fire caused significant damage to a local beauty salon in Prince George’s County on Wednesday.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire fairly quickly upon arriving on scene.

The fire, which began on the second floor of the business, appears to have been caused by an unattended candle.

iShya: Unique medical, day spa opens in Novi

<!–Saxotech Paragraph Count: 15

A new business has come to Novi that is both a medical and day spa with unique services not seen in many spas around metro Detroit.

Located in Twelve Oaks mall, iShya offers professional salon, spa and fashion services in an elegant setting.

“We’re excited to be here. This is a nice location and we think the Novi community will like what we have to offer,” said iShya co-owner Shyama Weeresgingha.

The spa brings the brand new Alma Laser (Harmony XL) to work in Novi.

“This is the best on the market, so we aim to offer the best,” said Kerry Reeves, medical esthetician at iShya. “I’m not sure many other spas have this yet.”

Reeves said some of their services include the famous “Clear Lift” procedure done in less than an hour to reverse years of aging and completely transform the skin in just a few sessions.

“We also offer truly pain-free laser hair removal in just a few minutes as well as eyebrow threading and relaxing rejuvenating facials” Reeves said.

Facials, body waxing and dark spot removals are among many other services.

The medical spa part offers microdermabrasion, LED skin rejuvenation, body treatment and skin tightening. as well as acne and cellulite treatments.

The staff is professionally trained and certified, and Weeresgingha said they aim to meet the needs of each customer.

“Our professional staff will help each person that comes in to determine the best services that will fit their needs,” she said.

Although it is in a bustling mall, the atmosphere of the spa is relaxing with soothing aromas and music filling the air. Reeves said they work to make a visit as good as possible.

Ultimately, iSyha wants to make the customer’s day that much better.

“We want people to leave here feeling both relaxed and rejuvenated,” said Weeresgingha.

New day spa now open on the bricks

By Dawn Pearson

Beautiful life…is what Belle Vie translates in French and what a new day spa is bringing to the bricks.

Belle Vie Day Spa, 114 North Main Street, upstairs in the Potpourri Building, offers anti-aging, skin care and many other spa treatments with a concentration on customer service, making customers realize their beautiful lives.

The spa opened a few weeks ago and brings the quaint, small town business style to the Village. Owner, Christine Miller is looking for her business to begin thriving.

 “It’s slow right now, but construction took longer then expected because we are in a new space in the Potpourri Building,” Miller said. “We are hoping once kids get back in school business picks up.”

 Speaking of kids and school, Miller is a teacher in the Westview School System as well but decided to finally dive into her passion after 19 years in the classroom.

My dream has always been to open a small business in the quaint community,” Miller said. “Life is hectic and busy, and I think everyone should take some time for themselves, and this is where the peaceful setting of our day spa will help.”

The fact that they are truly a spa without a salon will separate them from the competition.

“We are through and through a day spa. A lot of others are salons with day spas in them, so they are louder with talking and busy hustle and bustle,” Miller said. “We focus on rest and relaxation with a calming environment where people can get away from the noise and stress of every day life.”

But making customers feel special is what Belle Vie is all about.

“Customer service is our foundation,” Miller said. “Everyone that walks through the doors are treated as if they are a king or queen for the day. Our customer service ti top notch, they are the only one that matters to us at that moment.”

“The other big thing for us is our affordability,” she said. “We are a local, small business, not a huge chain and we fit well into the village, focused on customer services and affordability.”

According to Kristy Brunso, location administrator, all new customers will receive 20% off all services on their first visit.

Comics turn sweltering subway platform into sweaty day ‘spa’

An improv comedy troupe made light of one of New York’s least pleasant summer experiences, the subway schvitz.

Improv Everywhere pranksters commandeered the uptown 34th Street N, R and Q station platform and ran an impromptu day spa — to the confusion and delight of overheated straphangers.

The day’s 85-degree heat of July 19 meant it was a sweltering 95 degrees down below, making an ideal setting for the group’s mock “34th Street Spa.”

Members of the troupe wrapped themselves in robes and towels, playing the roles of spa clients. The footage was posted on the group’s website on Tuesday.

“It’s very warm and humid down here,” one of the funny group’s leaders told bewildered subway riders. “We can’t provide air conditioning, so we’ve converted this space into a spa.”

They served lemon-lime-infused water, offered hot-stone therapy and “misting stations” for some cooling from the oppressive subway heat.

One courageous middle-aged woman took advantage of the hot-stone therapy and loved it: “That stone treatment was lovely.”

Cops warned comedians that they’d have to leave if anyone complained, according to Todd.

“They [police] were very polite,” Todd told The Post on Tuesday. “We had a polite interaction with them. We saw them laughing.”

The group shot an hour of footage before a station manager came downstairs, asking the comics to leave. But by that point, the group had all it needed.

Group founder Charlie Todd said he’d been considering this prank for years.

Like all subway riders, Todd has eagerly jumped into an empty subway car on a sweltering day without realizing there’s no AC.

“Every so often in the summer, you’ll accidentally step into a car with broken air conditioning, briefly considering yourself lucky to find an empty car before realizing the reason why it is empty,” he wrote on the group’s website.

“I never got around to staging this because I couldn’t logistically figure out how we’d be able to reliably find a car with broken A/C. Plus, there would be no audience, as no one in their right mind would enter the car.”

Then he realized where the perfect stage would be.

“The platform! Of course!” he wrote. “It’s reliably hot and there is no escape.”

PRWEB.COM Newswire

Botanica Day Spa continues their celebration of summer with the announcement of having performed more than 12,000 Brazilian bikini waxes to clients in the Tampa Bay area. In honor of this milestone achievement, the spa has rolled out a number of new client specials including great deals on products and services.

Gen Obolensky, owner at the spa, says she was surprised when she realized how many Brazilian waxes Botanica had performed. “It was surprising, but we have been very lucky to have such a loyal client base of people who are like family to us. We also know that when it comes to Brazilian bikini waxes, clients are more likely to stick with a technician that they feel comfortable with.”

As for what makes a good Brazilian bikini wax, Obolensky adds, “The most important thing is to make your client feel comfortable, especially if this is their first time getting a wax. Of course, minimizing discomfort is also key and this is done by working quickly and using perfect waxing technique.”

The spa’s new client specials, listed in full on their website, include:

  • Purchase your first 90 min massage for just $90.
  • 15% off your first service or product.
