#SpaVoice 
January 2020

Welcome to 2020!

It’s January! A new year, a new decade and a leap year to boot! 

There is so much excitement in the air for the new year, with much to look forward to. The opening of several beautiful new spas for one: there’s Carden Park Spa in Cheshire, showcasing a stunning outdoor space particularly. We also eagerly anticipate the openings of the spas at Windsor Park, Buxton Crescent and Three Mile Beach in Cornwall also. 

In this month’s Spa Voice, we dive deep into the perceived Wellness Trends of 2020, a checklist if you like. Research from the Global Wellness Research Institute states that the global health and wellness industry is growing at an historic rate nearly twice as fast as the global economy. Now worth $4.2 trillion with 12.8% growth between 2015 and 2017 representing 5.3% of total global economic output. What at time to be in spa! Therefore, be ahead of the game upon reading this article – Blue Mindfulness anyone? 

Also Jasmin Julia Gupta of Cancer Hair Care, the only UK charity solely focused on offering guidance before, during and after hair loss due to cancer treatment, talks of her partnerships with Champneys and Made For Life Foundation in ‘Together, We Can Make Hair Loss One Less Worry’. 

I expect by now you will have read an article or two on CBD.  If you are still wondering what all the fuss is about Ramina B Kharileh of BB Lifestyle and Nick Osipczak of Raised Spirit uncover everything you need to know in their article CBD Demystified.

Talking of being in the know, be sure to add the first UK’s industry dates to your diary. From our point of view, UKSA kick things off with our early Spring networking event at the brand new Carden Park on 4th March 2020, where you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the new spa. 

We look forward to welcoming to our first event of the year!

Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous year ahead.

2020 Wellness Trends Checklist
by Juliet Wheater

Research from the Global Wellness Research Institute states that the global health and wellness industry is growing at an historic rate nearly twice as fast as the global economy. Now worth $4.2 trillion with 12.8% growth between 2015 and 2017 representing 5.3% of total global economic output. What at time to be in spa! 

Accelerating segments include personal care, beauty and anti-aging products (typically as younger consumers establish better regimens earlier and boomers are embracing longer life spans) as well as nutrition and weight loss.

Some predict that during 2020 and well into the new decade, beauty brands (accredited as early adopters of social media) will begin or continue to be more authentic, transparent and engaged with their consumer community. Perhaps as part of this demanding consumer community, the last decade brought real progress in the way that society views beauty. Makeup became more inclusive, with much less airbrushing within advertisements and further appreciation that one size does not fit all. 

Will your spa offer any of these beauty and wellness trends . . .

Together, We Can Make Hair Loss One Less Worry
by Jasmin Julia Gupta of Cancer Hair Care

“I founded Cancer Hair Care in 2011 as a free service with a group of deeply inspiring women and the dedication of amazing friends, family and supporters. 

I'm very proud to say that we are the only UK charity solely focused on offering guidance before, during and after hair loss due to cancer treatment. We span the entire hair loss journey and concentrate on all aspects of hair loss and hair loss prevention (scalp cooling), right through to new hair growth into recovery.

Possible hair loss has a devastating effect on someone who has cancer. When a woman loses her hair due to chemotherapy treatments, her confidence takes a huge plummet. It can often be a hugely traumatic experience and left unsupported, she can experience both image anxiety and isolation. 

There are many barriers to women who lose their hair. One barrier that I felt we could easily do something about was . . .
 

 
CBD Demystified

What exactly is CBD?

Chances are you’ve already heard the term CBD bantered around but if you haven’t, that will most certainly change in the very near future as CBD oil and products that contain CBD continue to become increasingly established as the world’s new alternative wonder drug.  Over the past few years, inspirational market innovators such as BB Lifestyle (formerly Fenix Cosmetics) with over 20 years specialist experience in dermatological grade skincare products, have been creating and manufacturing high-end skincare products containing CBD.

Not only has CBD oil been hailed as a potential treatment for sufferers of chronic diseases like multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and even cancer, it is also remarkable because it has very few side effects compared to similar prescription medications and over-the-counter remedies.

Yet despite the assertion by sceptics that CBD is the . . .

A Note from the Chair . . .
 
"What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year."
- Vern McLellan 

What's going to be different this year . . 

That's a question I think we all either consciously or subconsciously ask ourselves in that in-between Christmas and New Year time. But do you really ever answer it or just ponder it?

Do you make a plan, spend time colour coding it, putting it on post it notes and looking all lovely. Maybe your more of a spreadsheet person or maybe you're more of a 'keep it in your hear' type of planner.

Then what happens . . . you get back to the spa, somethings happened, I mean, there's always something. The pool is a funny colour, the air conditioning won't work or there's music playing in one of the treatment far rooms louder than the others . . . and on the list goes.

What happens to that plan then?

I'm calling for the second half of January, now the new year spa niggles are hopefully out of the way, to be "Get  Out That Plan" time. Dust it off, see what you wanted to do and, here's a crazy idea . . . . do it!
