Healing and Spas Title Bites the Dust
Healing Lifestyles operation to shut down.
Healing Lifestyles & Spas, a JLD Publication focused on inspiring readers to engage in "mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being," announced today that it will be ceasing all print, online and news operations after more than 13 years.
An email blast delivered this morning said that the print magazine would no longer be published and “all web services, including these tips, will no longer be produced or supported.”
HL&S was acquired by new publishers 8 weeks ago,
"and they’ve decided to shut down the entire brand effective
immediately," former editor-in-chief Melissa Williams told FOLIO: in an email. "Both Shanon [associate publisher Shanon Hoffman] and I are very saddened by the news, as the
HL&S brand has been truly our pride and passion. I’ve been with the
magazine for eight years and Shanon for six. However, we plan on
combining our wellness passion, and knowledge of the spa industry in a
new venture," she said.
The health and spa magazine headed up by publisher Michael Donnelly does not have circulation or ad page numbers listed, but related title MSLO’s Body + Soul saw its ad pages up 4.4 percent from 2007 in the most recent report from Publishers Information Bureau.
