April is Spa Month: The Medical Spa Approach

 


Good Morning!

April is Spa Month: The Medical Spa Approach

April is Spa Month and it has fast become the latest invention in the spa industry introducing people to new and alternative treatments. 

The term "Medical Spa" is fast becoming the new spa incarnation. The spa industry has been moving into new realms of consciousness for the past decade. The goal of any spa is to introduce new and vibrant concepts, therapies and wellness features to their demanding, high profile clients, while staying ahead of the curve. It has become a fierce and competitive business. The current trend in spas can be seen reaching out to the newest billion dollar market, the alternative health industry. 

Although, alternative treatments lurked on the fringes of many spas for years, nowadays, hotstone massage, crystal facials, acupuncture and facial rejuvenation, anti-aging therapies and water therapies have become the norm. Also, the attention to proper body alignment and posture have also brought awareness to the spa patron. I have even seen many of these services now offered in nail and hair salons! The spa industry is integrating world modalities in healing and healthcare in order to keep up with customer's demands for living a cleaner, healthier, less toxic lifestyle, as well as, the one-stop shopping mentality. 


Combining Beauty with Nature


Ayurvedic Treatments

The principle medical system of India is known as Ayurveda and is over 5,000 years old. This "Science of Life" is considered the art of living in harmony with nature. In Ayurvedic philosophy, people, their health, and the universe are all thought to be related. It is believed that health problems can result when these relationships are out of balance. The goal of Ayurveda is to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit. This is believed to help prevent illness and promote wellness. Learn more about Ayurvedic trends.

Energy Medicine 

The power of the intangible has taken hold. For centuries, energy medicine has been around and accepted in many cultures. From the Chakras of Tibetan and Indian cultures to the Meridians and Qi of Chinese and Japanese medical practices. Energy therapies are now a staple in the spa and wellness industries. The most cutting edge spas are incorporating Chakra balancing and Aura cleansing in their menu of services. Color therapy kits with bath oils and sea salts.
