Sandwiched between those dog days of summer and that looming holiday frenzy, the month of October is undeniably refreshing: the air is cooler, the apples are crisper, and Spa Week is back in town. For the 13th year, nearly 1,000 spas across the country are gearing up to help clients chill out. From Oct. 11-17, participating spas — including the Buttermilk Inn & Spa in Milton, Coku Spa at Pamaya Red in Piermont, and Spa Cascada in Saratoga Springs — offer signature treatments for the special $50 event price. From relaxing sugar foot scrubs to luxurious full-body detox treatments, their aim is to soothe the needs of both body and mind. So you can breathe a sigh of relief: Your aches and pains — and perhaps your wallet — have never felt so good.
