Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) February 14, 2011
Joy of Spa (http://www.joyofspa.com) has released Valentine's Day performance for their 3000+ local and independent member spas, and the results are great. The spas realized a 27% increase in online gift certificate sales over 2010, a significant increase that reveals an important shift in consumer behavior - gift buyers opened their wallets to provide pampering, relaxation and rejuvenation in an economy that is just picking up speed after a dismal two years.
A positive spending trend in the spa industry at this early stage of economic recovery suggests consumers get the importance of incorporating regular self care in the form of massages and bodywork, aesthetics, and nail care into their lives. Once considered purely indulgent, spa treatments have become a necessity for many, particularly those who believe in the health benefits of regular massage and anti-aging benefits from aesthetics maintenance and care.
