Lifestyle Firm Partners With America’s Premier Spa to Create the First Podcast of a Spa Retreat


Los Angeles, CA/Escondido, CA – December 14, 2011.  The Golden Door Spa in Escondido, California was recently featured as the first spa on podcast and radio show Spa Brunch.

From December 4 to December 10, 2011 Candy Silvasy, founder of Art of the Spa, participated in the Golden Door’s renowned health program and broadcast a recap of her day’s highlights incorporating advice from Golden Door’s experts each evening on Spa Brunch.

Silvasy’s goal was to educate others about what a week at the Golden Door is really like and to show how much fun spa can be.  “I hope to dispel myths such as all one does is lay around in a robe all day”, she says.

“Having never done the program, I was astonished what a life changing event my week at the Door turned out to be and,” she adds, “My listeners truly experienced my transformation right along with me, including a heady acupuncture session”.

Radio is ideal for bringing the spa experience into listener’s homes.  Especially for a spa like Golden Door where guest privacy is paramount and video and photos are not allowed.

In particular, internet radio:

– Skews younger with 19% of people aged 18-34 listening in the past week, though all ages comprise the demographic

– Attracts an upper income audience with 40% living in a household with income of $100K+

– Is a growing platform with a 50% audience increase over the past year

– Has more than one in five people listened in the past month

Golden Door is rebroadcasting an episode each Friday on it’s Facebook page and the podcasts are also available for free download on itunes.

Ironically, Golden Door Spa was the motivation behind Silvasy’s career and passion for the spa lifestyle.  Contact Silvasy with questions about the show or being featured on a future episode at 513-543-0993 or  Direct questions regarding Golden Door’s program to: Jennifer Hart at Golden Door Spa 760-761-4139.
