When you embark on a bold dream, such as The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease, you activate hope. The dream isn’t achieved—and may not be realized in your lifetime—yet the sheer act of committing to it blossoms hope within you and others.

Hollywood and the Entertainment Industries Jump into Wellness

 

Wellness will become a bigger, more meaningful programming focus as Big Media digests the huge cultural force wellness has become and offers it to all. Smart TVs offer wellness 'channels' on their home screens while wellness companies become TV studios: meditation-apps, Calm and Headspace, recently scored TV shows, translating their meditative experiences into immersive television. Celebrities are all over wellness, not just as spokespeople but as company founders and major investors.

Located between the jungle and the sea of the Riviera Nayarit, W Punta de Mita surprises you on arrival with a stunning mosaic pathway created using 751,184 tiles incorporating Huichol icons such as eagles, snakes and the eye of God. The mosaic begins at the lobby and continues through the resort to a viewpoint overlooking the sea. It represents the path of life, rising and falling, until the soul transcends to the next life in front of the Huichol goddess of the sea, Haramara.

Nature has provided humanity with a very powerful materia medica: essential oils. In Europe, aromatherapy is considered the queen of therapy in the 21st century. Some of the healing modalities carried out with essential oils through years of practice and experience with my patients I can call almost miraculous, if there were no scientific basis for how essential oils work.

Haven Resort & Spa is a fairly new addition to the Riviera Maya’s resort selection; having opened in 2018, Haven offers a peaceful, adults-only sanctuary to those looking for a relaxing getaway. The elegant design is clear upon arrival, with a stunning ocean view awaiting guests as they step into the lobby and accents of turquoise highlighting the Caribbean blue of the ocean throughout the resort. A walk-in, circular pool provides a tranquil atmosphere for those looking to relax with a variety of stylish cocoons and shaded beds to choose from. The central pool and beach area offers activities throughout the day such as aqua-cycling, paddleboarding, fitness board classes and beach volleyball.

It goes without saying that single-use PPE has been vital recently. When experts were initially unsure how coronavirus was transmitted, we utilized disposable items to minimize the spread. Unfortunately now, an increasing number of masks, gloves, and plastics are washing up on shores. The understandable need for disposable items came with consequences: a setback in environmental progress.

Here at emerginC we’re changing our packaging to glass, plastic-free resin caps, and Brazilian sugarcane-based plastics as part of our continued effort to cut down on fossil fuel use and reduce our environmental footprint. Sugarcane substitutes fossil raw materials and decreases greenhouse gas emission by using organic fertilization, and by being a renewable feedstock. Sugarcane is rarely irrigated in Brazil since the water is provided by rainfall. During sugar production, water is used minimally. Sugarcane ethanol only inhabits a small part of Brazil’s arable area. Diseases that threaten sugarcane are treated using biological controls and genetic improvement programs instead of using genetically modified methods.

As personalized sound healing and music compositions explode into the wellness space, I found the approach of LifeRythms uniquely interesting. Audio alchemist, Robert Alexander offers customized affirmation sessions, easily scheduled virtually. The session is akin to a guided meditation and the client is asked to prepare by ensuring they have a calm and quiet space to connect online and with the intention of getting in touch with their feelings to aid the flow of the session. Starting with the discovery phase, Robert will learn about your current life experience and intentions for the future before asking you to embark on an inward journey. Guided visualization helps uncover behavior patterns; potential blocks are identified before affirmations are finalized and recorded verbally.

Situated on the outskirts of Tulum, a small beach town on the Riviera Maya, Holistika Tulum is tucked away next to the jungle. Host to healing retreats and a wide variety of wellness activities, Holistika has become a ‘mecca’ of sorts, for those looking for connection with mother earth and spirituality, and disconnection from daily life.

Today’s online streaming workout is very impersonal. When people take an online class or watch a YouTube/Instagram workout, the instructor typically doesn’t know the individual's fitness level, journey, and goals. No one is watching their form or performance, nor keeping track and measuring their progress.

The demand for touchless technology in the spa and wellness industry has increased significantly in recent months. Specialized touchless treatments allow spas to offer their guests exceptional experiences while adhering to strict hygiene regulations. Even before the pandemic, one of the biggest challenges of wellness facilities was finding skilled and knowledgeable therapists to ensure consistent treatment quality.

Nails need love and care. Apply the same basic principles you follow in skincare to nail care; keep them clean and hydrated. This is the foundation of healthy nails.

The wellness industry is being transformed by technology as we adapt to touchless therapies, bio-monitors and the greater role of tech-driven programs in delivering integral wellness experiences.

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the multitrillion-dollar global wellness economy, today announced that the dates and location of its 2021 conference are confirmed: It will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel, from November 15–18 at the Hilton Tel Aviv, set on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. It’s the first time in its 15-year history that the GWS will be held in the Middle East.
