52 @dayspamagazine • August 2019 One of the biggest trends in wellness is the use of CBD. Ever yone is motivated by the benefi ts, which include reducing pain and infl ammation, as well as helping ease anxiety and depression. However, I'm most inspired by our industr y promoting sustainability—with both guests and associates—through emotional intelligence. The cornerstone of our business is building relationships and making meaningful connections. When we strive to embrace and understand our own and others' emotions, we are better equipped to meet the needs of all. The result is a beautiful and successful spa environment. Carrie Sotebeer Spa ser vices manager The Phoenician Resort Scottsdale, Arizona We're seeing a growing consumer awareness of thalassotherapy (or seawater therapy), thanks to the popularity of ocean-derived nutrition, including algae tablets and nori. Algae is packed with vitamins, minerals and trace elements, and it's a crucial farming alternative as we face rapid mineral erosion in our soils due to modern agricultural practices. We deliver this nutrition transdermally with treatments like the Marine Mineral Wrap (60 min./$205) and Wellbeing Ritual (90 min./$290). Seaweed is my all-time favorite ingredient, as it offers detoxifying, remineralizing, moisturizing and antiaging effects all in one! Kristi Dickinson Director of spa & wellness Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa Rancho Santa Fe, California Guests are looking to integrate techniques and tools from treatments into their own self-care routines, bringing their spa experience home. A great example is gua sha, a holistic facial massage that helps achieve a gorgeous, glowing and smooth complexion. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, it uses gentle upward strokes over the skin with a fl at stone, typically made from bian, jade or rose quartz, to naturally tone and lift facial muscles. It also helps relax stiff muscles and promotes tissue drainage. Gua sha doesn't just help you look healthy, it promotes radiance from the inside out. Jessica Candy Spa director Hawanawana Spa at Four Seasons Resort Lanai Lanai City, Hawaii ues G ut. e o We'r W ne O nt. me ne! n on RETAIL ROCKSTAR THE SPA Glacial Waters Spa at Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, Minnesota THE PRO Sarah Savino, lead esthetician THE STAR Éminence Bamboo Firming Fluid WHY IT ROCKS "Almost all of my clients are interested in looking younger, and this product helps visibly reduce the signs of aging. The bamboo and natural retinol complex firm and tighten skin, and guests keep coming back to buy more because of these results. It's actually tough to keep the product in stock because people are so happy with what they see and feel following the facial services that feature it, not to mention after they use it at home. Our staff informs clients about the products used during treatments and the results they can expect, and I believe that guests especially enjoy having a natural substitute for what they may have been using before. It's even an employee favorite, so our love for the serum really shines through. Month after month, it's one of our top sellers!" u WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE NEW OR EMERGING WELLNESS TREND?
