The Art of High Touch: Twentyfirst Century Spas


Check out my latest huffpost article,LAS 09.jpg

Megatrends (1982) author,  John Naisbett , perceived the concept of high tech high touch. The meaning of this phrase is that you need to serve people using technology by making them feel human, not part of the machine. In our modern society where technology has taken over, people are spending more time interacting with machines (cellphones, computers, etc) than humans. Many of the predictions from his book are a reality, including the shift from industrial to high tech,  institutional to self-help,and the need for more personal human interaction. Thus, in seeking self-help solutions, many of us are yearning for the softer side of life, and flocking to spas to experience ‘high touch’ nurturing to bring life back into balance.

Sometimes a body treatment can be more rewarding in the long run than a new object/outfit/shoes. Wellness experts are reporting that the best way to obtain healthy habits is to become aware of your body and your needs. Self-Care is the buzz word.

The sooner you begin to get in touch with your own body, it’s needs and messages, the better. This is the beginning of a life-long relationship. You are the CEO of your own health. The first step is to visit a healing retreat or spa and become the master of your body and it’s needs.

The future of Healthcare is Self-Care and the first step to becoming the master of your own body is to visit a healing retreat or spa.
