If the only thing holding you back from a relaxing spa visit is the cost, now's the time to book a treatment. During Spa Week Spring 2011, spas across North America are once again offering full-service spa treatments for just $50. Over 800 spas in 34 states in the U.S., plus Canada, are participating, so the pickings are rich.

Spa Week deals at the Willow Stream Spa at The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Arizona include a 45-minute warm embrace body wrap with hydrating body mask and gentle head, neck and shoulder massage and a 45-minute energy pedicure with foot and leg massage. Red Door Spa at the Hyatt Regency Bonaventure in Florida is offering 50-minute stress melters, 50-minute facials and 60-minute pedicures. In the Los Angeles area, Huntington Spa at The Langham offers a 60-minute signature facial and a 50-minute shampoo and blow dry.

With such huge savings available, don't wait till the last minute. Make your appointments directly with the spa you want to visit for the week of April 11-17. If you do miss out, there will be a second spa week later this year. For more information, visit
