clinical and medical aesthetics – is carrying
wellness into the heart of what perhaps
we would we have once called “enemy
territory” – the traditional medical sector.
How exciting is that?
Don’t forget, when you are quietly
waxing away, perhaps slipping in a little
Reiki, or lovingly massaging feet while
the facial peel sets, or building someone’s
self-esteem with a makeover, our humble
beauty industry is truly contributing to
changing the world.
If you don’t believe me, ring me! I have
an eagle eye looking from the top of the
mountain and, believe me, we ARE making
a difference. Go girls (and boys!)
I LOVE BEING on a learning curve! I started
the Beauty Trade Guide and grew it into the
Professional Beauty magazine because, as I
learned about the beauty industry, I learned
there was a need for them.
So I learned more in order to create
them well so that they contributed to my
Then I learned about the spa industry
emerging overseas. So I learned all I
could about it and communicated it to
the industry here by creating the Spa
Australasia magazine so others could
It was the same with the other spa
industry initiatives – I saw there was a need,
learned all I could and passed it on.
I’m learning again – I love it! As
the professional beauty and aesthetics
industry becomes more clinical (at the
same time as becoming more focused
on wellness) and the medical industry
becomes more and more interested in the
profit potential of aesthetics, there is so
much to learn. I am lucky to be immersed
in that learning curve so that I can pass it
on to you.
One of my teachers is the fantastic editor
of this magazine, Jenni Gilbert.
Jenni came into this editorial role just
as Spa Australasia changed its mandate to
become SPA+CLINIC and communicate
insights and learnings on the clinical as well
as the wellness sector.
She has played a pivotal investigative
and teaching role as a journalist and
editor in this important growth sector
for many years and I learn from her ever y
day. I love it! And I am sure you are loving
what she delivers for you to learn in her
Recently I have had the pleasure
of attending various cosmetic medical
conferences – so inspirational. As I walk
the wellness first and “beautiful results
whatever it takes” tightrope for myself, as
well as on behalf of our industry and most of
our clients, I am finding amazing examples
of wellness and cosmetic science and
I met Dr Ben Johnson, who opened
one of the first medispa chains in the
US, launched the medical strength
Cosmedix and now Osmosis, encapsulating
his more recent understandings of

He blew me away with his latest wellness
strategy evolution in treating the skin
and the internal body with Harmonized
Water – achieved by the inclusion of scalar
wave frequencies. An advanced scientific
wellness technology so new that he is only
the second person I have bumped into
working with it.
I had an inspiring conversation with
Dr Ronald Moy, nicknamed The Youth
Guru and Past President of the American
Academy of Der matology, and the founder
of cutting edge skincare DNA Renewal
about global education methods to advance
the awareness of holistic wellness in the
aesthetic ageing process.
Among those conversations (and
many more), it may seem like a small
thing but to me it is a historical line in
the sand – the food!
If you have ever been to an industry
trade show or conference you will
appreciate this. There was a high quality
specialty menu for dietar y sensitivities,
beautifully presented. The food was
organic. There were gluten free choices,
vegetarian, fat free, sugar free and I don’t
know what else. The only challenge was
keeping the non-sensitives away from it!
Why is that such a big deal? Because this
was a medical conference for doctors and
surgeons, proving the topic of my last Spa
Guru letter ... the worlds of medicine and
wellness are finally merging.
I’m excited because in the same way the
spa industry, born from the humble beauty
industry, carried wellness into mainstream
