The highlight of our fully packed agenda was learning from Dr. Deepak Chopra, Pioneer of Alternative Medicine & Author; Founder, The Chopra Foundation, U.S who spoke about ‘The Future of Wellbeing’.


After watching a short video showing the miracle of conception, gestation and birth we heard once again of the important role of the gut microbiome (microorganisms and their collective genetic material). This microbiome communicates with the body by regulating which genes get turned on and off, “acting as both a thermostat and a switch” advises Dr. Chopra. “Who are we?” he questioned, “all DNA is make of atoms forged in the crucible of stars. We are essentially stardust beings. The body is like a river, constantly changing with every breath.”


In less than one year you replace 98% of the atoms in the body, the skeleton is replaces every 3 months and our DNA which holds the memory of our evolution, changes every 6 weeks. “The body I am in today is just my 2015 model” Dr. Chopra joked.

Having just arrived the afternoon before, I’d had the chance to catch up with just a few of the many delegates and friends attending this year’s Global Wellness Summit (GWS). The first day got started with a beautiful presentation from Louie Schwartzberg, ‘Gratitude Revealed’. Through the visual medium of film Louie perfectly captures the beauty of nature and delivers the message of species under threat. The Monarch butterfly that migrates between Canada and Mexico is down to 20% of its population from just a few years ago, largely due to use of pesticides and Monsanto’s Roundup. The message: we must protect the beauty of nature before it’s too late.

Los spas de hoteles en general, desde los spas de hoteles urbanos a los spas de resorts, disfrutan de varios beneficios de los que otros spas no disponen: una base de clientes formada por los huéspedes del hotel en su propia puerta, la oportunidad de aprovechar los recursos de su hotel (Finanzas, Marketing, Servicio de Limpieza, Ingeniería, por mencionar sólo algunos), y la opción de pedir ayuda al director general del hotel cuando sea necesario.


Sin embargo, estos beneficios vienen acompañados de un conjunto diferente de desafíos, tales como:

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!
