Now there is a new kind of woman who especially needs these services—female veterans of combat. I wonder what it is like for them to have fought like men and returned home to find their femininity again.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Dorit Baxter, founder and owner of the long-established New York Day Spa in Midtown Manhattan relates how she decided upon providing a complimentary spa package for female veterans.
“In December, as the U.S. experienced its consecutive fourth holiday season in tough times, I was reading What It Is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes, a much-decorated Vietnam veteran. At the same time, I was watching on TV as troops returned from Iraq.”
Dorit Baxter explains that reading a searing account of combat while watching homecomings of female veterans awakened in her strong feelings of empathy for these young soldiers returning from harrowing experiences to an America full of uncertainties.
“My thinking about these vets focused on the women among them,” Baxter continues. “My career has been about been providing wellness and beauty treatments which make women feel better about themselves. Now there is a new kind of woman who especially needs these services—female veterans of combat. I wonder what it is like for them to have fought like men and returned home to find their femininity again.”
The Veterans Spa Package consists of a trio of treatments which soothe, beautify and groom:
Medley of therapeutic massage modalities, our Eclectic Massage, designed to unblock energy pathways and release tension, is the optimal bodywork for women coping with past traumas and present stresses
Balancing and beautifying facial treatment for all skin types, our Classic European Facial will restore vitality to a face that has been through tough times and give the features a dewy glow of health and energy
Pampering and grooming service, our Spa Manicure, which gives a polish to every woman’s appearance, is perfect for putting the finishing touch on preparing for a job interview, or a festive occasion.
“This is my way of reaching out to veterans,” Dorit Baxter says. “It is my hope that many other Americans will find their own ways of saying Welcome Home.
