The relaxation of a spa -- massages, facials, pampering -- who could resist it?

"It's a great way to unwind," says Catherine Tiruzio, a patron at Green Spa and Wellness Center in Brooklyn.

Most people need a little relaxation but not the stress on their wallets. Spas can be expensive, costing anywhere from $50 for a manicure to $200 for a massage.

But starting next week, you can experience full premiere spa services for just a fraction of the cost.

Spa Week runs October 15-21. Each spa offers two to three full service treatments for just $50 each.

"If you've never been to a spa this is the perfect time to take the time out, treat yourself go to the spa receive a service and if you are a regular spa goer you can try out more services at more places because the cost is extremely affordable," says Kelly Verdi of Spaweek.com.

About 200 spas nationwide are participating in Spa Week.

New York has participating spas in every borough, including the Green Spa and Wellness Center in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and Aqualia Spa on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

"We're offering a few different services at $50," says Maureen Brody of Green Spa. "We have organic cotton microderm abrasion, our organic express facial, a 45-minute massage, an organic body exfoliation using vegan eucalyptus exfoliation, and our vegan spa pedicures."

"We feature the 60-minute aquatic deep-tissue massage for Spa Week which is $50, we usually have it for $80," says Kathy Yu of Aqualia spa in Manhattan

Whatever your stress may be -- work, kids, school -- during Spa Week unwinding from it all won't stress your budget.
