As recent jobs reports have revealed, the service sector is well and truly on its way to recovery. And given how stressful the past year was, many people are raring to get some pampering at spa centers.
In this era of the new normal, however, spa owners have a lot to communicate to lapsed customers, including new operating hours and safety precautions that you’re implementing. Furthermore, many businesses in the service industry – both in your category or not – are firing up their marketing engines, making it harder to stand out from the crowd.
Luckily, press releases are an excellent and cost-effective way to publicize that you’re back in business. The goal of press releases is to be featured on trusted information sources such as local news websites, which have a well-established and highly engaged audience.
The best part? Press releases often cost very little to publish — a boon at a time when the service sector is just finding its feet again. And if you do get featured in the news media, prospective customers will likely check out your website and social media profiles, giving your online presence a major boost.
With so many benefits to press release marketing, spa centers should definitely give it a try. Don’t know how to write press releases for your business? Then check out this simple template and example we’ve prepared just for you:
Your Press Release should include the following information:
- Catchy headline
- Details about your spa center
- What are you announcing/launching?

- Further details (e.g. What kind of services do you offer? Are your staff members licensed? How can customers book sessions? What safety measures are you employing?)
- Special offers or promos

- Relevant image: spa center’s logo, your portrait, photo of your team/spa

Writing a press release might seem like a simple task, but it’s worth investing time as it has the potential to be an incredibly effective tool for marketing your spa centre.
– SAMPLE PRESS RELEASE –
As you can see in the template, it’s important to have something truly important to announce when writing a press release. Moreover, you must share the most crucial details early on to engage and entice readers.
Let’s pretend that you’re announcing a new service for your spa. Your press releases might read something like this:

Massage therapies at Lotus Day Spa focus on releasing muscular tension and addressing common problems such as headaches, fatigue, and back pain.
According to a spokesperson for the center for massage therapy: “We specialize in holistic massage therapy for pain relief, massage for relaxation, and whole-body rejuvenation. We are excited to offer these services to the community and be the top massage therapist Modesto has to offer.”
Lotus Day Spa is a massage therapy facility and spa that provides a comprehensive range of relaxing and rejuvenating services.
