2006 Diagonal Reports:
New Spa Research Results were presented at the 2006 Leading Spas of Canada Conference in Vancouver. A joint venture of the Canadian tourism commission, ISPA and Provincial/Regional tourism agencies has produced an 84-page study that explores the unique characteristics of the US and Canadian spa-traveller (as opposed to the spa-goer). The research reveals the spa-traveller behaves quite differently than the spa-goer. While the spa-goer generally approaches his or her dates at the spa as a key part of a long-term health and wellness strategy, the spa-traveller is looking to splurge and indulge. In vacation mode, the spa-traveller is motivated by various factors including culture, history, cuisine, sightseeing and education. The full study, Identifying the Spa Traveler: A Look at US and Canadian Consumer Attitudes and Motivators for Spa Vacations (2006) can be found at CanadaTourism.com. For this study, a "spa" was defined as an establishment that offers at least two of the following three kinds of services: full body massage, skincare treatments (such as facials), and body treatments (such as hydrotherapy or body wraps and scrubs).
