than 25 years ago, long before
it achieved mainstream
traction. Health issues I
suffered just weren’t getting
any better following the
standard path of the time.
That was the beginning
of an incredible journey, not
only to restored health and
happiness but ultimately to a
new career path and way of
thinking. A nd I’m only now
watching what I learned all those years ago
being embraced as the new norm.
I have noted the “wellness” momentum
escalating in the year-plus I have been
But as the age-old adage goes, “you learn
something new every day”. And on the
subject of wellness, indeed I have kept on
learning; more than a few things every day.
As this issue alone illustrates, there
are ever-more new concepts, products,
technologies and treatments to address a
broad range of health and wellness issues.
When I say “new”, some are the re-
emergence of “old ” modalities, such as
the ancient science of aromatherapy (see
Heaven Scent, Page 90).
Popularised in the West in 1980s, its
potency and message became diluted,
confused and, it’s fair to say, lost credibility.
Now serious practitioners of the ancient
art/science are returning aromatherapy
to its roots as a force to be reckoned with.
That’s just one example of the new/old age
we’re entering into.
FROM THE EDITOR
HAVE YOU DECIDED how
to celebrate Global Wellness
Day? That is, assuming you
are – and we hope you do!
As reported in our last
issue, the inaugural GWD
falls on Saturday, June 13; a
non-profit social movement in
45 locations around the world
to raise awareness of living
well in its many and varied
forms, and seeking United
The brainchild of Belgin Aksoy, who
oversees her family’s famed Richmond Nua
Spa in Turkey, it encourages people to take
note that “only one day can change your
Wellness is one of the world’s largest
and fastest-growing industries. The 2014
Global Spa and Wellness Economy Monitor,
conducted by the independent, non-profit
research firm SRI International, found
that the global wellness industry currently
represents a $3.4 trillion per year cluster,
which makes it three times the size of the
worldwide pharmaceutical industry.
That’s all well and good, but what does
this mean for you as a business owner or
employee and your clients?
GWD is not an “event”, although it
certainly prov ides the opportunity to create
an event or other initiative in which you
can involve your clients and community –
and help raise awareness of, and goodwill
towards your business besides.
More than anything, it offers a thought-
provoking opportunity: What is wellness?
How can I improve my wellness? How can I
get my clients thinking (doing!) something
to improve their wellness?
If you’re a health/wellness practitioner,
you’d already be across this way of thinking.
If an aesthetics practitioner, you know
ver y well by now that beauty is severely
compromised in the absence of wellness.
As salon, spa, clinic and related industry
professionals, a day dedicated to the
concept, with its invitation to focus on the
cornerstone of quality of life (and options
with which to do this), gives you a unique
chance to inspire others to focus on what it
means to be “well” and how they can achieve
or enhance wellness in their own ways.
As I’ve written about several times before,
I became an holistic health adherent more
