The International SPA Association reports that spa visits are on the rise in the United States, with clients making nearly 160 million spa visits in 2012 alone, up from 110 million visits in 2006. This approximately 31 percent increase in visits can be attributed to the growing appreciation for the benefits of spa visits, the increased number of day spas, and increased popularity of spas among men. In fact, many spas are adding treatments specifically for men. These expanding facilities and new treatment options should translate into job opportunities for everyone working in this industry, including spa attendants.
