The Insider’s Guide to SpaFinder Wellness Week

Great Jones Spa, Russian banya

The Russian banya at the Great Jones Spa is the real deal

If your self-care regimen currently consists of taking an Advil and a nap, it’s time to shake things up with a vinotherapy treatment, a Russian banya, or a healing crystal ritual. All at half-off or $50 during SpaFinder’s Wellness Week.

The twice yearly Wellness Week has become a way that New Yorkers get hip to new treatments. “Wellness Week inspires people to explore new forms of health and wellness,” says Susie Ellis, SpaFinder’s president and the creator of the week-long fitness and spa event.

Wellness Week kicks off March 21–27. Many of the city’s best spas and fitness studios will be slashing prices and offering special free local community classes.

In fact, Well+Good is hosting a free Wellness Week event March 24 at the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers! We’re also offering readers a chance to pre-book Wellness Week treatments before it opens to the public. Stay tuned for details TOMORROW! [Update: You can now book early here.]

Here we’ve rounded up some of our favorite participating spas, where you can get a fab deal on a new-found wellness experience.
