Enjoy benefits of relaxation & the sun without going south

Planet Beach Contempo Spa is like having a beach in your own backyard all year round

Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Health/Medical Editor, Lifestyle Editor OAKVILLE, ONTARIO, MEDIA RELEASE--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2009) - After four months of prolonged exposure to Canada's dry, cold and dark winter, the human body is literally sun-starved and gasping for UV rays and some relaxation - and in only minutes at Planet Beach Contempo® Spa, a guest can experience the same health benefits of spending a day at the beach.

With spring break just around the corner, many families are busy planning their trip south, while many other families are merely wishing they were. But for those who don't get to go or want to experience the benefits of a warm southern exposure all year round, visiting therapeutic spas that offer UV light therapy is the next best thing - now imagine a spa that offers the private massage in the cabana as well - things can't get much better.

"It is no secret that light therapy treatments are known to have a number of health benefits," says Planet Beach Contempo® Spa Master Franchisee Nicole Matta. "It's proven effective in treating acne, psoriasis, seasonal affective disorder, and non-seasonal depression - not only does it improve skin conditions, it makes you feel better, brighter and more energetic."

Planet Beach Contempo® Spa uses state-of-the-art spa technology and advanced light therapy enabling guests to enjoy, in the privacy of their own room, the best in UV and relaxation therapies.

"My doctor wanted to know how I fixed my "trapezius [muscle]". She was astounded and said she would do anything I was doing to get her trapezius to feel like mine. My blood pressure is down, my mood is up - I come every day for my "wellness" time," says one member of Oakville's Planet Beach Contempo® Spa. "It's the best thing anyone can do for themselves."

Guests have the choice of relaxing and unwinding on a Hydro-Massage bed, target vital pressure points and invigorate tired muscles with the heated Therasage shiatsu massage bed, or just sit in a Japanese Executive massage chair where all you need to do is take off your suit jacket and shoes and let the chair ease the day's tensions away.

"So whether you come for a tan, UV therapy, or just to relax with any one of our many massage therapy units, just put on a relaxation tune with the sound of waves hitting the shore, close your eyes, and you will not just think you're at the beach, you'll experience the benefits of a day at the beach like no other," says Nicole Matta. "And should you decide to become a member and visit regularly, not only will you feel better, your skin will be noticeably healthier and more youthful-looking." IN: ECONOMY, HEALTH, RETAIL
