While the city floats on a fashion high, we’re here to remind you that Fashion Week isn’t the only thing trending in this town. Spa Week is almost here (October 11th -17th) and the time to book is now. This Fall, Spa Week released the Top 12 Hottest Spa Treatment Trends for Fall 2010, and as the country’s leader in emerging trends across the board, it’s no surprise that just about every spa participating in New York Spa Week is offering one or more of these elements in their $50 offerings. So, yes, go for your usual Spa Week massage, but also try one or two of these of-the-moment treatments that will inspire health and beauty in ways you never knew. Stay ahead of the curve, New York. These are available all over the country too, but we rounded up the New York options below. For a list of all $50 Spa Week treatments, click HERE. 1. Fighting Allergies Sinus massages, breathe-easy facials and cold & flu bath salts are just a few of the spa services you’ll be seeing this upcoming Spa Week, just in time to soothe your seasonal allergies. Treat your immune system and clear your sinuses in the spa with new treatments using Eucaplyptus, humidifiers and Lymph drainage movements , to name just few of the techniques being used to assist in allergy relief.

Bikini Glamour Vajazzling made its sparkly splash last Spa Week, when bedazzling your bikini became the hot new standard in girly glamour. Following up on the hush-hush trend of the spring is the equally risque, yet must-have adornment of the fall, Vattooing. Or if fancy adornments are not quite your taste, the basic Brazilian will always be in style.

Sleeping and Dreaming Insomniac? A good night’s slumber with proper REM cycles can be just as rejuvenating as a spa treatment, so one of the hottest trends emerging in the industry is a dream-worthy mix of the two to promote better sleeping patterns. Scents such as Rosewood, Palmarosa and Vanilla are used to guide you off to never-never land while massage techniques make for a complete relaxation experience. Beauty Jewel Spa & Laser Skin Care Center 60 Min Signature Relaxation Massage 146 West 4th Street New York, NY 10012 212.505.0600 Tribeca Beauty Spa 45 Min Dream Massage 8 Harrison Street New York, NY 10013 212.343.2376 Yin Beauty & Arts Spa 60 Min Meditative Sleep Therapy or Relaxing Massage 103 West 86th Street New York, NY 10024 212.362.2626 Orange Skye Body & Beauty Bar Min Sleeping and Dreaming Full Body Relaxation Massage 50 Rockaway Avenue Valley Stream, NY 11580 516.284.6378 4. Lash Extensions Eyelash length, thickness, volume and darkness have gone way up on the beauty priority lists of women now more than ever. While new drugstore and professional lash volumizers continue to crowd the lash-enhancing market, the Fall Spa Week event is poised to give women more professional lash-extending options than ever before.

Instant Inch Loss Remember that magical, completely safe instant weight-loss pill you always dreamed of? We’re not saying it’s been invented (sorry), but the spa is becoming a go-to place to get instant, (almost) magic-like results in addition to providing long term benefits. Colon Hydrotherapy is becoming more popular as a quick, easy cleanse, and hot new med-spa services like the 7E Treatment and Ionithermie give immediate results by targeting muscles with waveform technology.

Reiki and Energy Work Turn your trip to the spa into a journey for the soul. Reiki, energy work and holistic healing deliver health benefits ranging from injury recovery to spiritual growth. By engaging the flow of your “life force energy,” practitioners are turning spa-goers into active believers. Look for treatments with an energy component this coming Spa Week, and may the force be with you.

Acupuncture This ancient holistic healing technique is no newbie to the spa scene, but the granddaddy of healing is suddenly making a resurgence. The World Health Organization advocates the use of acupuncture to treat over 40 conditions, from anxiety and other stress syndromes to musculoskeletal pain and injury, and the Fall Spa Week event will encourage more spa-goers to forget their fears of needles and reap the benefits of this treatment—for their face, body and both.

Botox on the Go Pick up dry cleaning, get Botox, grab lunch… what? Yes, the age-defying treatment has become so mainstream that spas are now offering it hassle-free, and even appointment-free. Add the $50 Spa Week price tag, and suddenly “to-tox-or-not-to tox?” is one of the easiest decisions to make.

Hot and Cold Stone Massages Spa Week’s favorite sweetheart treatment has always been the Hot Stone Massage, but the newest twist is cooler than past seasons. Instead of using all hot stones, this treatment includes the application of cold stones as well, adding multi-dimensional stimulation. Alternating the hot and cool stones helps every cell in the body receive more oxygen and nutrients and encourages a more effective removal of toxins Center For Pain Relief & Wellness 60 Min Hot & Cold Stone Massage 80 West Main Street Babylon Village, NY 11702 631.422.3355 The Mezzanine Spa Hot & Cold Stone Massage 62 Crosby Street New York, NY 10012 212.431.1600 10. Champissage Also known as Indian head massage, Champissage has been practiced for more than 1000 years in India and has now been interpreted as a custom ritual at many spas. Traditionally, it began as a system of family grooming, with mothers massaging their daughters’ hair with oils to encourage long, lustrous locks. Over time, it began to incorporate massage of the face neck and shoulders, specifically yours this upcoming Spa Week. SPA at Andaz Wall Street 45 Min Ritual Scalp Massage 75 Wall Street New York, NY 10005 212.590.1234 Graceful Services 50 Min Scalp Massage 1095 2nd Avenue, 2nd Floor New York, NY 10022 212.593.9904 Graceful Spa 56 50 Min Scalp Massage 240 East 56th Street, Suite 2W New York, NY 10022 212.755.5589 11. Everything Seaweed You’d like to be… under the sea? Why? Just go to the spa. Seawater and seaweed have similar mineral contents with approximately the same percentage as the human body. Because of this, seaweed wraps help detoxify the body, eliminate excess fluids, increase blood circulation and regulate hormonal levels. More treatments than ever are incorporating Seaweed this Spa Week. Go for a dive.

Simply Oxygen Human beings’ star life-sustaining molecule is getting more and more play inside the spa. One of the new treatments is Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Therapy, which dissolves oxygen in the blood plasma and all body cells, tissues and fluids at up to 10 times normal concentration—high enough to sustain life with no blood at all. Oxygenating facials are also increasing in popularity, as oxygen continues to secure its reputation as the #1 skincare essential.
