From Amusement Park Spas to Snow Showers to Beauty Coaching: SpaFinder Forecasts Top 10 Global Spa Trends for 2012
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 06, 2011
From amusement park spas to cold treatments like snow showers to the arrival of beauty coaches, SpaFinder today released its annual Spa Trend Report forecasting the global trends and ideas that will reshape spa and wellness in 2012.
Now in its ninth year, the influential annual report is based on analyses from SpaFinder Research and its team of experts who visit hundreds of spa and wellness businesses around the world every year, as well as interviews with leading industry analysts, and data and feedback collected from SpaFinders partnership with over 15,000 spas, yoga, Pilates and fitness studios, wellness practitioners and salons worldwide.
The Spa Trend Report is developed under the direction of SpaFinder President Susie Ellis, a contributing editor to NewBeauty magazine, a founding board member of The Global Spa Summit, and author of the widely read industry blog Susies Spa Blog. Ellis is credited with forecasting numerous industry mega-trends that have taken hold in spas around the world.
After four tough economic years that made experimentation challenging, we are seeing the industry once again pushing the envelope with exciting ideas, delivering more wows, more fun, and quite serious wellness innovation, said Ellis.
Ellis continued: Overall, we see two distinct themes emerging. One is the industry innovating with diverse, new sensory experiences and treatmentsfrom cold and vibration therapies to new services for healthy feet. The second is how spas are re-imagining and extending their connection to customers, moving beyond the sporadic visit, to programs aimed at developing long-term relationships such as coaching and online gaming.
The top ten global spa trends for 2012 are:
1.) Healthy Feet Treatments
The delicate human foot contains 33 joints, 26 bones, and 126 muscles, ligaments, and nerves which women regularly squeeze into high heels. Add the fact that the average person spends four hours a day on their feet, and it’s no wonder there is a national epidemic of foot problems like bunions, hammertoes, arthritis, and worse.
Spa-goers can now take care of their troubled tootsies with a variety of treatments and classes. Canyon Ranch SpaClub in Las Vegas offers a comprehensive Healthy Feet program, with computerized gait analysis and treatments in zero-gravity chairs, while Yamuna’s boot camps in New York City teach attendees to improve their posture and strengthen the muscles in their feet. There are even 100% foot-focused med-spas such as California’s Stride Wellbeing, which combines podiatric medical care with a menu of foot-pampering treatments. And podiatrist-overseen medi-pedis are booming, like those served up at celebrity foot doc Margaret Dabbs London centers, or famed French foot doctor Bastien Gonzalez signature pedicures at One&Only spa resorts worldwide.

2.) Cold and Ice Treatments
From saunas to steam rooms to hot stone massages, spas have traditionally turned up the heat. But while heat promotes relaxation and detoxification, the benefits of icy therapies including better circulation and reduced inflammation of muscles and joints – are finally getting their due.
Infrared saunas, which direct radiant heat into the body without heating the air, are becoming more widespread, and more extreme cold and hot/cold-contrast treatments are on the rise. Every ESPA spa in the world now offers ice rubdowns after saunas, while spa-goers at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas can experience falling snow in its Arctic Ice Room. A new Snow Shower from Thermarium will hit the market soon, and for hardcore ice devotees there’s cryotherapy, where a person spends 2-3 minutes in a chamber cooled to a mind-numbing -120
Question by Blondie: I NEED YOUR EXPERTISE —–> Wine Refrigerators 40-50 bottles.?
I have a ton of relatively good wine and am looking to buy a refrigerator. I’m willing to spend around $ 500 an hope to get something that will last a long time and can hold 40-50 bottles. I just need the wine to be stored properly, not necessarily duel temperatures or the major bells and whistles.
Thank you for all your help.
Answer by plumdumplings
I know this isn’t what you are asking, but I will recommend that you go bigger. You sound pretty serious (just realizing that the dual temperature thing is a load of crpa is a good indicator) and I bet you’ll fill up that 50 bottle unit before you know it!

Question by johnnycam_2004: Can wine be aged quicker and how good/bad is the result?
There are products that supposedly can age wine through some kind of magnetism device. Are these for real? The advertising looks good, with testimonials, but there are forums and websites that say they don’t do what they say.
Entering “wine age magnetism” or something like it into the Yahoo! search above will give you some information about these products.
If you have experience with any product of this kind, please give your opinion on how well it worked or didn’t work.
