International film star Leonardo DiCaprio made news this week when he purchased a multimillion-dollar unit in a green and sustainable Greenwich Village building with over 500 wellness and health features, cheekily described by the NY Post as “vitamin C-infused showers, purified air and water, posture-supportive flooring, a kitchen herbarium and dawn simulation provided by a proprietary circadian lighting design.”

While some members of the press took delight in poking fun at Mr. DiCaprio for putting his money into wellness, we applaud him for placing a spotlight on what he describes as “innovative building designs that both enhance human health and improve the environment.” After all, nearly all famous movie stars have multimillion-dollar homes, but his commitment to living in a healthy environment—and his celebrity—set an example that people everywhere can (and will) follow, even if they live in a simple dwelling.


World-Renowned Spa Brand ESPA Debuts at NIZUC Resort & Spa, the Mexican Caribbean’s Newest Luxury Destination.

It’s official! The Global Spa & Wellness Summit (GSWS) has announced the winners of the inaugural Spa and Wellness Infographic Competition, which offered a new opportunity for people around the world to become engaged with the GSWS. The top honor went to Lori Hutchinson, founder and co-owner of Hutchinson Consulting, a California-based hospitality-recruiting firm, for her infographic titled “You Would Love a Spa Career.”

Hutchinson’s entry was inspired by a survey of 548 spa professionals worldwide who said their careers were rewarding and fulfilling. Her winning infographic depicted five compelling reasons why a spa career should be considered and was designed in collaboration with Jason Parmer, creative director of Dapper, an advertising and design agency based in Lexington, Kentucky.

The second prize went to Johnathan Preyer, also of the U.S., for his consumer-facing design, “The Sitting Disease,” which depicted why “sitting is the new smoking” and explained who it affects and why people should take it seriously. Third-place honors were shared by Aimee Stewart of Ireland for her design titled “What Is Your Ayurvedic Dosha?” and Itchaya Goaysomboon of Thailand for “The Rise of Health and Wellness.”

Over 130 people registered for the international competition, which challenged contestants to use the infographic design medium to present an informed, inspired vision of any aspect of spa or wellness they chose. The four winners shared $5,000 in prizes: $2,500 was awarded to Hutchinson and $1,500 to the second-place winner. Third-place winners shared the $1,000 cash award.

The contest was sponsored by SpaBooker and was open to both individuals and teams over the age of 18. A panel of three industry experts selected the winners in a “blind judging” process.

The winning entries can be seen on gsws.org and will be showcased by the GSWS throughout the year. You can also read the press release for more information about the winning designs and the competition.

Our final day got off to a strong start with Bill Rancic, entrepreneur and winner of the first season of The Apprentice, talking about agility in business and the entrepreneurial mindset.

We welcomed in Michael Tompkins as our new ISPA chairman as we applauded Ella Stimson for her fulfillment of the role over the last 2 years.

Highlights from the expo floor today include:
Pure Fiji's new Guava body care collection demonstrated by 2 wonderfully happy Fijian therapists who sang and danced while they performed a guava foot ritual. Perhaps we could offer something similar in Mexico drawing on Mayan or Aztec traditions?
I loved the new COOLA beach or poolside sun care cart that was wheeled around the show by Chris, showcasing his brand’s bestsellers. This would fare very well in our resort spas I believe!

My day, and the conference, ended on high note with a lovely hydrating and stimulating facial with Sanitas, who incorporate the Clarisonic cleansing device and the Clarisonic Opal to increase product penetration around the eyes, a treatment much appreciated after a few days in the desert.

All that's left now is the farewell party where we'll socialize and network (and perhaps dance a little) in Light nightclub, Mandalay Bay.

Today started with Susie Ellis' presentation of the Global Wellness Tourism study, commissioned by the GSWS and presented at the latest summit meeting held earlier this month in New Delhi, India. The results are positive and inspiring for our industry, particularly here in Mexico where we can deliver such great wellness experiences and spa vacations.

The General Session commenced with the award to Mary Bemis for her contribution to our industry and followed with 3 charismatic speakers on Mind, Body and Spirit.

My highlights from the expo floor include:
Miracle Lips from Holocuren, the natural way to heal and treat dry lips, Intraceuticals' innovative oxygen delivery system and nourishing serums, and the new ME! Bath spa collection that smells good enough to eat.

The afternoon's highlight was most certainly the session delivered by Megan Fitzgerald on social media. I have never seen so much useful information delivered in such a short space of time from someone with such a genuine desire just to help.

The live auction was as entertaining as always with Lawrence Biscontini hosting and the big names in retreat spas such as Rancho la Puerta and Mii amo, battling to give away more and more in support of the ISPA foundation.

Another successful and enjoyable day concludes before the final day ‘mañana’.

Sara

The day got off to a great start with some statistics from Ella Stimson on the growth of our industry; ‘GROW’ being the theme for this year's conference. 
The inspiring story of TOMS shoes told by Blake Mycoskie ensued and set the mood for a great conference to come.

The gift bags placed on our seats included numerous delights, most appreciated by me was the Farm House Fresh, Pink Moon Hand Cream which I instantly applied to soothe my dry skin. I am really not used to such low humidity levels!

A morning mimosa with the lovely ladies from Sanitas Skincare certainly made a great start to my day and I was then ready to tackle the Expo Floor.

My highlights from the Expo Floor include:
The Lightstim Anti-Aging LED device (which I am keen to start using), a great green tea drink from SEN CHA to battle my travel and jetlag induced cold and the plastic reducing Lifefactory glass drinks bottle.

I attended a great PROJECT INFUSE session, delivered by Leigh Weinraub whose infectious enthusiasm was a delight to be around as she helped us increase our self-awareness.

The day ended fantastically with a lovely Sothy's Body Journey treatment leaving my skin soft, and fragrant with vanilla.

I now await the ladies and gents from Oka.b, the makers of my favorite spa footwear, for some evening cocktails.

 

Hasta mañana,

Sara

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.
