S t y l e M e e t s S u b s t a n c e [ 78 ] • # dayspamagazine • september 2018 The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has unveiled plans for its "Wellness Meets Fashion" show, scheduled to take place at the gala event on October 7, 2018, in Cesena, Italy. The show is a collaboration between fashion/lifestyle brand BuDhaGirl, art-focused athleisure brand La Forma, Louie Schwartzberg's Moving Art, and the GWS creative team. "Fashion has the power to shift cultures and mindsets in monumental ways," says Schwartzberg, whose nature imagery will be the visual heart and soul of the show's collection. "Melding a wellness ethos into clothing can only serve to inspire and empower the wearer to live a more mindful life, and I'm thrilled to be part of this collaboration." Additionally, David Lynch Foundation CEO Bob Roth has been announced as this year's GWS keynote speaker. For the past 45 years, Roth has taught Transcendental Meditation (TM) to thousands of people, from at-risk youth to CEOs and celebrities. "I'm excited to share new research fi ndings and insights into why meditation needs to come out of the realm of philosophy and be categorized as serious and scientifi c medicine for the 21st century," says Roth. It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Michael L. Antoline, JD, a longtime columnist for DAYSPA and an esteemed member of our advisory board. The Champaign, Illinois-based attorney's deep understanding of business matters, from employment guidelines to intellectual property, also made him a popular speaker at spa and wellness industry trade shows. DAYSPA's relationship with Michael dates all the way back to 1997, when he began penning the magazine's monthly column designed to help spa owners navigate the complex legal issues pertinent to their businesses. Legal Pad quickly became a reader favorite, thanks in no small part to the columnist's uniquely accessible writing style and his wicked sense of humor. "Michael was fearless about digging into controversial topics, but he also had a way of making dry or complicated subject matter accessible and entertaining," says former DAYSPA editor Linda Kossoff . "I learned so much from editing his columns—and the bonus is that I also gained a true friendship that lasted nearly 20 years." Michael passed away on May 18, 2018, at the age of 66. He is survived by his wife Kathleen, sons Benjamin and Grant, granddaughter Emma, sister Marina and brother Tony. He will be deeply missed. IN MEMORIAM: Michael L.

More specifi c fi ndings from the portal's inaugural U.S. Laser & Energy Report suggest that four key trends are shaping the market: fat reduction (with CoolSculpting, Smart Lipo and SculpSure ranking among the top 10 most researched), vaginal rejuvenation, facial lasers and laser hair removal. "New laser and energy technologies have brought innovative treatment solutions for a range of services, from body contouring and facial treatments to tattoo removal and vision correction," says RealSelf founder and CEO Tom Seery. "Based on consumer interest and review patterns, we expect to see interest in treatments using laser and energy devices continue to rise." Laser Focus in the news industry headlines
