Radio Show Launches Series at Golden Door Spa:  Lifestyle Firm Partners With America’s Premier Spa to Create the First Ever Podcast of a Spa Retreat

Los Angeles, CA/Escondido, CA.  The Golden Door Spa was recently featured as the first live broadcast from a spa on podcast and radio show Spa Brunch.  Spa Brunch, which began as a lifestyle & music show, is strengthening it’s focus on bringing live spa experiences & DIY tips to listeners with this series.

Candy Silvasy, founder of Art of the Spa, participated in the Golden Door’s renowned week long health program and broadcast 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.  “And continue to inspire & excite our listeners to emotionally connect with the spas featured on the show as we grow.”

“Having never done this 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 to life.  Especially for a spa like Golden Door where guest privacy is paramount and video and photos are not allowed.

In particular, internet radio/podcasting:

– 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

Golden Door rebroadcast the episodes via it’s Facebook page and twitter.  And the podcasts are also available for free download on itunes.
