In researching the Evolution of Spa for this month’s issue, it became evident that was true in Roman times remains relevant today – the Latin balneum (bath) is defined as “the presumed benefit from disease by bathing”. Evidently, SPA has progressed significantly since then but the current focus on WELLness & WELLhealth within the industry clearly replicates the preventative focus used so many centuries ago. The increasing abundance of choices in wellness tourism will continue to grow as guests seek and demand sustainable and environmental approaches to their WELLbeing travel.
This year’s ISPA will be held in Las Vegas at the Venetian from September 11-13th so please make sure to stop by the GHARIENI booth #660 where you can experience the updated MLX Quartz treatment with its newest feature – the HAPPINESS factor. Embedded Salt bricks heat up and negative ions are released into the air which have been shown to increases levels of serotonin (the happiness factor!).
