Protecting Children from the Rush to Adulthood

Dorit Baxter Day Spa Advocates Protecting Children from the Rush to Adulthood

When an article appeared recently in the New York Times about spa-going girls as young as seven, Dorit Baxter felt compelled to add her voice to the hundreds of comments deploring the practice of encouraging parents to plan spa visits for children with the following statement:

I am the owner of a day spa in midtown Manhattan which does not offer treatments to children under the age of twelve. For teenagers under sixteen, we only provide procedures to modify skin problems and excess body hair. We applaud previous comments deploring the rush to adulthood

One of Dorit’s intentions in writing this comment was to urge her fellow-spa-owners to set an age limits policy so that little girls aren’t having beauty days instead of play days.

Close up view of happy cute kids with leaves bunchAt Dorit Baxter, we believe that it is socially irresponsible for spas to market to children treatments that they don’t need, and which are contributing to the overall societal trend of rushing them to adulthood for commercial purposes.

Our spa considers itself part of that facet of the Aesthetics & Wellness community encouraging our patrons to look and feel their best, while mitigating the influences on our clientele that make so many women feel unhappy about their appearance, and obsessive about the natural signs of aging.

In this spirit, we know that the only way we here at one of America’s original day spas can be of help to children is to keep them away from the spa. And that’s what we will continue to do.

Yours in celebration of childhood,
Dorit Baxter & Staff

Dorit Baxter Celebrations

An Anniversary Celebration at Dorit Baxter Day Spa

Dorit Baxter

Dorit Baxter

This December marks the 25th anniversary of the opening of our spa at its present location.

One of America’s First Day Spas

Prior to December of 1989, Dorit had owned since 1980 an innovative Beauty & Wellness boutique in Midtown East. Motivated by the desire to bring to the hardworking New York career women who have always been her clients the ultimate in relaxation, Dorit opened one of the first day spas in America at her present location in the core of midtown Manhattan.

Multicultural Practices & Products

From the beginning, Dorit’s sensitivity to the needs of different skin types and the spa’s aura of friendly inclusivity attracted a highly diverse clientele, a multiculturalism also reflected in the line of skincare products used and sold at the spa.

Recognition from New York Times

Five years ago this week, at the end of the worst business year in the U.S. since the 1930s, the New York Times wrote a feature story about Dorit Baxter Day Spa, in tribute to the durability of a small business with a loyal clientele who appreciate quality services at modest prices in a welcoming atmosphere.

Past the Quarter-Century Mark

Now that one of the original American day spas has marked a quarter century in Midtown Manhattan, we are looking forward to continuing to provide our clients with a tried-and-true blend of quality, affordability and affability.

We look forward to seeing you at our spa in the New Year
