A debutante in the health and beauty industry, Joy of Spa coins itself as a gift-certificate directory with a heart, featuring helpful articles on creative gift-giving, customer reviews, and a wish list option for those of us who dont like to be surprised. Marketwire refers to it as an information resource and archive, and according to the Joy of Spa website, it is also a celebration of the spa experience.
Until now, the gift-of-spa venture has played a crucial yet incognito role in the lifelines of the salons they represent, referring customers to businesses individual websites for spa-specific gift-certificate purchases. On April 21, however, the company launched their national spa gift certificate at Prosecco and Pampering a celebratory press event for the year-old startup. Procurable online for e-mail (long-distance gift-giving) or print distribution, the new, universal certificate is redeemable at any of the 3,000 health and wellness establishments in their network.
