SPA PROFESSIONAL MÉXICO PREMIARÁ A LOS MEJORES 25 SPAS DE MÉXICO PRESENTADO POR TECHNOGYM

  • La industria del spa y bienestar genera más de 60 mil millones de dólares a nivel global, con México y el Caribe a la cabeza en el continente americano.
  • Spa Professional México es la publicación especializada de la industria de los spas y bienestar.
  • La publicación anunciará los Mejores 25 Spas de México, presentado por Technogym.

Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, a 18 de julio del 2012.- Spa Professional México, la publicación especializada en la industria de los spas y el bienestar en nuestro país, anunció que dará a conocer los resultados de su encuesta sobre los Mejores Spas de México, con el objetivo de impulsar el conocimiento de esta industria entre los especialistas del turismo, salud y bienestar, así como difundir los beneficios de los spas entre la población en general.

“Es muy emocionante para nosotros el dar a conocer la lista con los Mejores Spas de México”, comenta Sara Jones, editora de Spa Professional México. “La industria de los spas y bienestar ha estado creciendo mundialmente durante los últimos años, y actualmente se considera que a nivel global genera más de 60 mil millones de dólares, con México y el Caribe a la cabeza en el continente americano”.

Con el patrocinio de la firma Technogym, los jueces de Spa Professional México desarrollaron una lista de los 25 mejores spas, apoyados en su amplio conocimiento de la industria del spa y bienestar tanto en México como el resto del mundo. Para lograr el reconocimiento, los spas fueron juzgados por su menú de servicios, calidad del tratamiento, atención personal, ofertas de bienestar, imagen y sus instalaciones, entre otros puntos. Entre los 25 ganadores se otorgarán reconocimientos en áreas de excelencia, como Servicio Excepcional, Ideal Para Parejas, El Mejor para el Bienestar, entre otros.

Estas calificaciones sirvieron para determinar cuáles spas lograron un lugar en la prestigiosa lista de los 25 mejores y el anuncio con los resultados finales se realizará el próximo 31 de julio por parte de Spa Professional México.

“Mucha gente que conoce los spas disfruta ampliamente del ambiente y los tratamientos que recibe en ellos”, comenta Elizabeth Willars, especialista en spa y bienestar. “Nosotros juzgamos en base a los elementos que conforman este ambiente, así como la satisfacción de los clientes que reciben sus tratamientos, quienes valoran su bienestar y buscan una alternativa efectiva para eliminar el estrés, mejorando su salud y calidad de vida”.

Tradicionalmente, los clientes de los spas buscan diversas alternativas de relajación y bienestar, lo cual ha fomentado un segmento de turismo global dedicado a esta industria, con México como uno de sus principales destinos. Esto, a su vez, ha impulsado el crecimiento de un fuerte mercado nacional y regional.

“La industria del bienestar no debe ser considerada una industria de nicho. La consultora SRI International calcula que ya cuenta con más de 290 millones de consumidores en todo el mundo, por lo que se encuentra en una etapa de expansión y desarrollo muy importante, donde el profesionalismo y servicio único de cada spa determinará su éxito al corto y largo plazo”, concluye Sara Jones.

For every family bonding thwarted, stress is the suspect. The usual victim of stress is the mother. Moms have the most number of jobs, particularly at home. The chores at home can affect a mother’s patience or body condition. Now that it is National Stress Awareness Month, it’s time for mothers to think of themselves. This festivity is not exactly created for moms. All people of different age brackets, sectors, and professions feel stress too. Still, with all the work that mothers go through every day, let us dedicate this month to them. One way to battle stress is going to a spa. These businesses are expected to become the busiest this National Stress Awareness Month. Expect demand for services to skyrocket. 


Even if it will seem like the Black Friday sale for spas this May, there’s still one way for you to get great deals. First, get your smartphone (the one that you usually use for playing online games over at binguez during your precious rest hours), then find the most reliable spa portals on Google. Bookmark those websites so you can access them again whenever you want to know about the latest spa trends, where the best spa professionals are, and where you can get the best spa discounts and freebies. After you learn about these essential things, it’s time for you to save a day off from your busy schedule. Yahoo! Travel recently came up with a list of the world’s top spa destinations - some are natural while others are man made. Among them are Mohonk Mountain Spa, Waldorf Astoria, Mokara Hotel Spa, Auberge du Soleil, and Squaq Creek Resort. 


Going to these places may be costly, but for a mother who has spent all her hours taking care of her family, a day or two of relaxation is worth every penny. For sure, these places are also anticipating a high demand because of the National Stress Awareness Month, so there’s a chance for you to find a great deal.

Magazine

Welcome to the summer issue of Spa Professional Mexico. The last few months have seen a few changes take place for the publication; you will now notice that we will publish seasonally instead of bimonthly.  The publication will now only be sent out electronically for all to read online. For this reason I ask all of you to share the signup link below with your staff, colleagues, managers and friends (http://eepurl.com/cmdeH)

I recently attended the 6th Annual Global Spa Summit in Aspen, Colorado. In addition to attending the conference, the trip was also a welcome mountain break from the heat and humidity of summer in the Riviera Maya! The conference itself, held at the international think-tank Aspen Institute, was packed full of industry and non-industry speakers from a variety of backgrounds and countries. The record 325 delegates hailing from 40 nations embodied an impressive representation of the industry’s leaders from around the world.
.
With 50 innovative and idea-packed presentations delegates were urged to think outside the box and challenge the industry norms. Most notably Dr. Richard Carmona, 17th Surgeon General, U.S. & Vice Chairman, Canyon Ranch challenged us to “bring the spa to the hood” a thought that was echoed by Peter Rummell, Chairman, Urban Land Institute & Former Chairman, Disney Imagineering who, as an outsider to the industry caused a strong reaction when claiming that the “deadly definition of spa” is that “it is for rich, white women”. The theme of spa for all seemed to play strong with some of the student challenge presentations also, as they carefully considered price points to ensure the availability of spa and wellness to as many of their target market as possible. Turn to page 25 for more information and a link to the website and presentations, now available to all.

Enjoy!

For Mother’s Day, 93% of moms would rather be treated to a spa visit than receive material gifts like jewelry or flowers according to a recent SpaFinder survey published in April. In fact, SpaBooker, provider of booking and management software to over 3,000 spas, recently reported that spa gift certificate sales increased by 187% in the week leading up to Mother’s Day 2011 versus sales during an average week in the same year.

 

The good news is that there is still time for spas of all sizes to take some smart, last minute steps that will help ensure they take full advantage of bookings and gift certificate sales during this increasingly important holiday.  Here are a few tips and tricks that should help do just that:


  • Freshen up your website and Facebook page: Most gift certificates are purchased online or via phone. On your website and Facebook page, make it easy for gift-givers to find information about your gift certificate program, as well as any Mother’s Day specials. If you’re offering online gift certificates make sure the link to buy instantly is prominently displayed on your homepage.


  • Boost your sales with customized specials: Create customized packages for your most profitable and popular services, such as hot stone massages or body scrubs. Another great option could be a two-person package for a Mother-Daughter Day of Beauty.


  • Turn up the marketing volume: Leverage email and the power of social networks to drive gift certificate sales. Post links to your Facebook page and Twitter stream, and include them in an email blast to your customer database to direct people to purchase gift certificates and book online right from your website. Make sure to highlight whether gift certificates can be purchased by phone or online, how quickly they can ship, and any additional fees.


  • Use one integrated system: Consider purchasing an easy-to-use booking and eCommerce software system, which can be implemented in less than 48 hours. Solutions like SpaBooker will allow customers to easily purchase gift certificates online or through Facebook, freeing up your staff to take care of customers instead of answering phones and fulfilling gift certificate orders.

 

Be efficient with your resources: Free up your receptionist with eCommerce, online booking.

SpaBooker is used by more than 3,000 spas around the world, from hotels to local day spas.

Coyle Hospitality Group, a market leader providing mystery shopping and market research services exclusively to hospitality companies worldwide, announces the results of its 2011 Global Spa Report completed by 1,025 respondents from 34 countries on 6 continents in March 2011.

June 20, 2011

(New York, NY) Coyle Hospitality Group is pleased to release the results of their new 2011 Global Spa Report, which reveals what today’s spa consumers really want. With the economic recovery remaining fragile, spa owners need to continue proactively addressing the spa consumers’ priorities and needs. Why do people go to spas? What spa deals are capturing their attention? What is the impact of deal websites like Groupon? And, most importantly, how do spas retain clients and get them to inform their social networks? This exclusive research provides spa professionals better insight into understanding their clients and promoting greater customer loyalty and client retention. The following is a sampling of Coyle’s findings:

  • 47% of spa consumers listed “improving appearance” as one reason they visit a spa
  • 69% of those surveyed visited a spa based on word-of-mouth
  • 52% of respondents have used Groupon to source spa information, a tremendous increase up from only 22% in 2010
  • 66% of respondents have utilized online-deal sites to book a service
  • 86% of respondents would feel comfortable receiving a follow-up correspondence post-visit

Primary Reason for Spa Visits

The full report details the extensive results of Coyle’s analysis and further addresses some key questions such as: Will the deal savvy consumer actually return to my business and pay the going rate? What marketing efforts and promotions work best?

Coyle recognizes that consumers’ decision-making processes differ based on the industry; in spas, emotions are the drivers. Unlike other market research companies, Coyle doesn’t ask people what they ‘would’ do, but rather, what they have done and tries to ask open-ended questions rather than multiple choice wherever possible.

Recently, we called several resort spas and spoke to the spa receptionist, (one Mexican to another, therefore without any language barriers) and asked a couple of questions, the results were astonishing…

When I think about visiting a Spa one of the first things I want to know is the product brand they will use for the treatments. Now I understand that as a spa professional my knowledge of the brands is more extensive than most, but many of our clients are seasoned spa goers who would like to know this information beforehand.

When asked what product brand their spa used 57% of the spa receptionists replied saying they didn’t know and no effort was made to find out. What would be the answer from your Spa Receptionist? Is this information they are trained in or are they just there to accept bookings without the knowledge to back it up?  If so then your Spa is no doubt missing out on both treatment and retail revenue.

Only 35% had immediate knowledge and were able to advise us of their product brands (well done to these spas!), 4% replied by saying we should send an email to receive this information and a further 4% said they would not give out this information. This last category gave perhaps the most worrying response we came across, implying that they have the information but that potential clients are not allowed to know this information before arriving at the spa or resort.

I return now to my initial question; does your Spa Receptionist know enough about your Spa? Try having a friend or a colleague from another department call your spa and ask some basic questions that you would assume they should be able to answer, the results may surprise you!

After the great response to the first edition of Spa Professional Mexico it’s been a busy 2 months preparing for this edition and attending both the Expo Spa in Mexico City and the International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference in Las Vegas.

This issue brings you spa news from around the world including this year’s Global Spa Summit held in Bali, Indonesia. The most notable news from the summit is the launch of ‘Spa Evidence’, the world’s first portal collating thousands of medical studies and providing evidence for spa and wellness therapies. With a wide range of therapies covered and more research to be added as it becomes available, this is a fantastic resource for the spa and wellness community around the world. Visit spaevidence.com to start benefiting from the wealth of information available.

Our feature article this issue looks at the challenge and opportunity of the male spa and skincare market. Are you capturing your share of this market?  Are you retailing to them? Learn the secrets of this rapidly growing market sector and how to cater to it successfully.

The topic for discussion this issue is the emergent trend of salt rooms, a historic therapy returning to popularity across the spa world. Salt rooms provide health benefits such as improved immune system function and relief from respiratory ailments. Adding this service to your spa not only provides an additional revenue source without the use of a therapist but also has proven health benefits your guests may be looking for.

Once again, please enjoy this issue of Spa Professional Mexico,

This year the Global Spa Summit, held in Bali, May 2011, launched ‘Spa Evidence’ via their website.  This fascinating collection of scientific research covers a vast array of spa treatments and alternative therapies presented clearly and simply for the use of spa industry professionals and spa goers alike.

Once on the site I could barely tear myself away. The wealth of objective information will help to serve the industry by providing evidence of the beneficial effects of so many therapies.  I am sure this will be used in the future, if not already by insurance companies looking to lower payouts by improving the health of their customers with preventative therapies, corporations aiming to reduce sick days in their workforce due to stress related illnesses and spas to provide proof of the effects of their therapies and further evidence that a course of treatment is needed rather than single sessions.

Spa Evidence is a greatly welcomed resource to the global spa industry with fantastic potential.  Thank you Global Spa Summit!

When I moved to Mexico I fell in love with an amazing and beautiful country, the lush green landscape, the warm temperatures the tranquil beaches, of course the sunshine but not least of all the wonderful people of Mexico.

Working in the spa industry here has its similarities and differences to the spa industry in other parts of the world but one thing remains, the huge potential we have in an industry still just starting out.   There is so much room for growth of the spa industry in so many directions.  The wellness revolution is just beginning, with the stress of life seeming to never end and healthcare systems all over the world under increasing pressure and failing to provide, the spa industry can do so much more for so many people.

Here in Mexico we have the luxury of a great climate, bringing the tourist industry from North America and beyond, and those guests staying in our hotels and visiting our spas have certain expectations.  The spa guest is no longer an ‘average’ person just wanting a massage or facial and not knowing much more about it, they are spa savvy and tech savvy with knowledge of the best services, trends and ingredients and a world of information at their fingertips.  So what does this mean to the spas of Mexico?  We have a great opportunity to touch the lives of our guests with hospitality, care and attention and knowledge of their needs, whatever they might be.  We must look to the world of spa and wellness and beyond to understand the latest information our industry has to offer.

Spa Professional México aims to bring information from across the global spa industry to all levels of spa professionals here in México and draw together the community providing a forum for discussion and an avenue for news and information.

Please enjoy the first issue of Spa Professional Mexico!
